Year 3 - Wildcats

Welcome to Year 3 Wildcats 2018-2019!

We are a busy, fun-loving class of 30 children.

Miss Adams is our teacher. Mrs Rigby teaches us on a Wednesday. Mrs Hill and Mrs Moore work with groups during the week.

Useful Information

Our PE day is a Thursday - please make sure children have their indoor and outdoor kits in school so we look the part whatever the weather! It is easier to leave kits in school all week so that we are always prepared. PE kits should be in school colours (blue, white or black) and should include a t-shirt, shorts, joggers, a jacket, trainers and plimsolls. Swimming is on a Wednesday - children will need their costume and a towel.


Homework will be given out on a Wednesday and is due back the following Monday. Children will be rewarded with stamps on their reward charts for being 'on time' handing in their homework every week for a full half term.


Spelling tests will take place on Mondays and new spelling lists will also be given out on Mondays. Please encourage your children to learn the words from their weekly lists - these can be found in the 'Spelling Lists' section of the children's blue diaries.


Times tables tests will take place on Fridays. Children must achieve full marks on their times tables tests for two consecutive weeks to pass a table. There are 24 questions on each test (multiplications and divisions) and the children are given 4 minutes to complete it. The order for times tables tests is: 2s, 5s, 10s, 3s, 4s, 8s, 6s, 7s, 9s, 11s, 12s. By the end of Year 3, children should have secured up to and including their 8x tables to achieve the national expectation.


Reading is a priority at Dalestorth. If your child reads a minimum of three times per week and this is evidenced in their blue diaries and signed by a parent, your child will receive a stamp for their reward chart.


Our topics for the Summer Term are 'Why Are Humans Animals Too?' in Summer 1 and 'Shadow Dancers' in Summer 2. Both have a science focus.
