Year 3

Term 1 2020

In Year 3 we promote ‘reading for pleasure’, we would love our students to enjoy reading themselves and to enjoy listening to lots of different stories. As part of the Year 3 homework routine please encourage your child to read every night and record this in their ‘Home Reading Journal’. Twenty minutes of reading every day can make a real difference to your child’s learning. We encourage the students to choose a book they enjoy every week using the five finger rule every week.  

Additionally, we send home weekly spelling words and a Maths sheet on Fridays. The deadline for this homework is the following Friday.

Seesaw App
The Year Three classes use the Seesaw App. Seesaw is a great way for you to connect with your child's learning at school. When connected to your child's journal, you will be able to see some of the work that they are doing in class.

Please do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher if you have any concerns. Please try to make an appointment with your child’s teacher where possible.

Our Topic for this term is Australia. We will be looking into the First Fleet and how modern Australia has developed over the last hundreds of years.
