Well done Year 3 for having such a great first term back at school. We have had a lovely first half term and we hope you have a relaxing break.
On the first week back, we will be testing the children on their three times tables. We would appreciate it if you could practise this with them during the week.
The first week's spellings are:
move + ing = moving
joke + ing = joking
shine + ing = shining
compute + ing = computing
swim + ing = swimming
jog + ing = jogging
hop + ing = hopping
stand + ing = standing
talk + ing = talking
walk + ing = walking
We are revising the double, drop or nothing rule when adding "-ing".
If the root word ends in an "e", drop the "e" before adding "-ing".
If the root word has a short vowel before the consonant (e.g. hop) then double the consonant before adding "-ing". This keeps the vowel short (hop, hopping not hop, hoping).
Most of the time "-ing" is just added to the root word without changing anything.
The words in red are the words the children will be tested on.
Test date: Friday 30th October
Our outdoor PE day has now changed from Thursday to Friday. On Mondays we will be doing gymnastics in the hall.
Thank you for your co-operation from the Year 3 team:
Mrs Smithies, Mr Davies, Miss Sargeant and Mrs Smith.
