End of Year 3 Expectations
This booklet provides information for parents and carers on the end of year expectations for children in our school. The staff have identified these expectations as being the minimum requirements your child must meet in order to ensure continued progress throughout the following year.
All the objectives will be worked on throughout the year and will be the focus of direct teaching and homework. Any extra support you can provide in helping your children to achieve these is greatly valued.
If you have any queries regarding the content of this booklet or want support in knowing how best to help your child please talk to your child’s teacher.
How you can help your child:
- Ensure that you read with your child every night and ask them questions about their book
- Practice times tables with your child
- Encourage them to complete their homework
Here are some helpful websites you can use with your child.
Please consider Velcro or pull on shoes. Shoes with laces should only be worn if YOUR child is able to tie them independently without the need for adult assistance
School Trousers and Skirts
Please consider elasticated waist /pull on trousers or skirts; those with zips and buttons/ fasteners should only be worn if your child is able to fasten them independently without the need for adult assistance.
We encourage you to send your child to school in a polo shirt rather than a formal shirt unless your child is able to independently fasten all buttons including cuffs.
On PE day, Wednesday, we will be asking children to come to school dressed in their PE kit and school jumper. With this in mind, we encourage you to purchase alongside the normal kit, a plain pair of black tracksuit bottoms or leggings with NO logos, embellishments or sparkle and a plain pair of black trainers again with NO logos, embellishments or sparkle as we need to retain our high standards of uniform at all times.
If your child is having a packed lunch, we would like you to purchase a hard plastic variety that can be easily wiped down rather than one made from a cloth fabric.
If you wish for your child to wear sun cream whilst at school. We strongly advise that a ‘once a day’ variety is purchased and applied by yourselves to your child prior to coming into school.
Stationary / Pencil Cases
There is no need whatsoever for you to purchase any stationery resources or equipment for your child to bring into school. All pens, pencils, rulers, sharpeners, coloured pencils, felt pens etc. will be provided by school.
Please remember that all children should wear school uniform for the duration of the school day. Children are permitted to wear boots or trainers for outdoor use but should have black school shoes in school to change into. Please ensure that all uniform and belongings are labelled with your child’s name.
Please could all children bring a named water bottle to school for their own personal use during the day.
Thank you for all signing up to Class Dojo. It is a great way of getting in touch and sharing messages; especially if you, or I, are not about at the beginning or end of the school day. Also I will be sharing your child’s work with you through the class story.
In the event that we have to shut our bubble down, we will be using Google Classrooms as the platform for our learning.
In Year 3 there is a lot more Homework than in KS1 as their is a higher expectation from the children.
