As part of our Art this half term we are designing and building our own model village. For this to happen we need lots of boxes (nothing smaller than cereal boxes) These boxes can be brought into school from Monday 12th July. PLEASE DO NOT BRING THEM IN BEFORE THEN AS WE HAVE NOWHERE TO STORE THEM. Thank you for support.
Our Topic for Summer term is
Earthquakes and Volcanoes
If your child would like to learn some more about this topic outside of our lessons in school, here are some websites and resources for you.
Spellings for each week will be available on this page from Friday (let your teacher know if you need a paper copy).
Spelling homework needs to be handed in on Wednesday and should be completed in their orange book.
Each word should be written out at least 3 times and then used within a sentence, like this:
square, square, square
Sarah used a ruler to draw a square.
At the end of every week we will have a spelling quiz in class.
Our focus for this is not to test the children but to help improve their confidence and knowledge of spelling patterns and rules.
For for spelling quiz on Friday 18th of June
Alternative 'ear' and 'air' spelling
Log into Times Tables Rock Stars and complete the weekly 'garage' session as many times as you can. The more times you practice the more coins you earn!

HOW TO USE RISING STARS FOR READING!
We now have access to ebooks via Rising Stars.
The website can be accessed via this link...
You'll then be prompted to enter your child's log in details (if you need this information again, please ask your child's class teacher).
Once you log in, it will ask you to select either EYFS/KS1 or KS2.
Which option you select depends on which book band level your child is reading at.
EYFS/KS1 book bands are:
pink, red, yellow, blue, green, orange, turquoise, purple, gold, white
KS2 book bands are:
lime and free reader
(on the Rising Stars website we will allocate book bands higher than lime for our free readers while we won't give them a book banded reading book from school, they can select their own)
Once you select the option dependent on your child's book band level then it will show you the books that have been allocated to your child to read.
These books can be read aloud to them and there are quizzes for them to answer once they have finished reading.
We hope this information helps!
Team Year 3 :)
