Physical Education

Here at Tinsley Meadows we aim to promote a healthy lifestyle and a love of excersise.  We expect all children to change into an appropriate PE kit when they do PE.

All children must bring full PE Kit into school, which should be in a named bag and must be kept in school every day:
• a white PE t-shirt
• black shorts or leggings
• a tracksuit for outdoor PE in cold weather
• a pair of trainers (Children are NOT allowed to wear trainers during the school day except in PE lessons.  They must change into trainers for PE.)

How can you help your child in Year 3?

Reading

The more children read, the more fluent they become. Reading is crucial in allowing children to access the whole curriculum, therefore, we encourage reading at home as much as possible. Once children have read their reading books, they are encouraged to complete an activity in their reading journal. Reading records and reading journals are checked numerous times during the week to monitor reading at home and children are given a sticker to collect at school once a book has been read, which are then used to claim prizes. 

Timestables

Children in year 3 are expected to build on their knowledge of multiplication facts by learning and using the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Encouraging your child to practice regularly at home using Times Table Rockstars will support them in their recall and application of multiplication facts.

Maths

Maths can be applied to everyday-life and is essential in other subjects such as science, design and technology. In year 3, key learning such as place value and the use of the four operations, is built upon. Help your child by encouraging them to apply their learning to real-life contexts e.g. when in the supermarket and when cooking.
