Reminders for the Autumn Term 2021
Arrival and Collection Times
Children should use the one-way system to enter and exit school in September, entering and leaving via their external classroom door.
Children in Year R, 2 and 4 are expected to arrive between 8.45am – 8.55am and be collected between 3.15pm and 3.25pm.
Children in Year 1, 3, 5 and 6 are expected to arrive between 8.50am -9.00am and be collected between 3.20pm and 3.30pm.
Where siblings are in classes with different arrival and collection times, they should arrive at 8.50am and be collected at 3.20pm.
Stationery – It would be great if you could provide your child with a small, practical pencil case containing the following equipment: a ruler, glue stick, a rubber, a HB pencil and pencil sharpener and a set of colouring pencils. We will provide this equipment where required.
P.E.- Children in Class 3 will need to come to school on Monday and Wednesday wearing their P.E. Kit. P.E. kits should consist of jogging bottoms, shorts, a house-coloured t-shirt, jumper and trainers.
Ancient Egyptian Day - Our Ancient Egyptian Day will be on Wednesday 13th October. On this day, children should come to school dressed as an Ancient Egyptian or a Historian/Archaeologist.
Breakfast Club & After School Club - Children in Year R, 1 to 6 should arrive as normal and be taken to Breakfast Club room. They will be taken to their Classroom at 8.30am ready for lessons. Breakfast Club will be open from 7.45am. After School Club will be open until 5.45pm.
Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling Homework Books are kept in school bags.
The weekly spellings will also be uploaded on Spelling Shed for the children to practice each week. You will find your child's log in details in the back of their reading diary. https://www.spellingshed.com/en-gb/
In Year 3, children continue to learn to write different types of texts and we use model texts to highlight the key features of these texts before children create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 3.

As a school, we place emphasis on teaching Maths using a Maths Mastery approach. We place emphasis on children learning to develop their fluency, reasoning and problem solving skills. We use Maths No Problem Maths Textbooks and Workbooks in school. To find out more, visit https://mathsnoproblem.com/en/parent-videos/ to watch parent videos all about how we teach Maths at St Luke's. The table below highlights the textbook and chapters that we are learning in Year 3.

We ask all parents to support children with learning their number bonds and times tables at home; this is key to children being successful as Mathematicians.

During the year, we will use a range of texts to develop our reading skills and read stories written by a range of authors. The texts we will use are detailed in the document below.
Currently, we are reading 'There's a Pharaoh in my Bath!' by Jeremy Strong.
Our Class Country is Italy.
We will be learning all about Italy. We will investigate where it is in the world and find out facts about what it is like to live in Italy.
