Year 3 enjoyed the assembly delivered by the NSPCC last week. We met Buddy, the soft toy speech bubble, and learnt how much he wants every child to feel safe. Throughout the assembly, we talked about about different worries we might have, and how that can affect us.
Buddy taught us about the different types of abuse that exist. We learnt that abuse is never ok, and it is never a child’s fault. We talked about different trusted adults we can go to if we have any worries. There are lots of trusted adults in our lives including our parents, grandparents, aunts or uncles, teachers, teaching assistants, lunchtime supervisors. We can also contact Childline, which is free to call and open 24 hours a day. The phone number if you ever need it is 0800 1111.
The NSPCC told us about Buddy’s Big Workout, which is a sponsored workout we will be running in school to raise money for the NSPCC to help other children stay safe.

Helping at Home
On a Thursday your child will bring home a home learning task related to something they have been learning during the week. This needs to be returned the following Tuesday.
Each week, your child will be given spellings on a Monday, to be tested on a Friday. Your child will be working on either Year 1/2 or Year 3/4 common exception words, alongside the Year 3 National Curriculum words.
This term, you will be given multiplication tables to learn, to be tested each week. Below are some links to help you with your tables:
There are many times table songs on YouTube which can help children learn them off by heart.
Your child will be given a log in for Times Table Rockstars, which is a fun way to memories the tables and compete with their friends. https://ttrockstars.com/login
They will also be given a log in for RM Easimaths, where they can work through different mathematical questions and problems. https://www.rmeasimaths.com/
Please continue to read with your child on a regular basis. The reading record should be completed as often as possible and will be checked when they read with an adult at school. Children should read school books and anything else that they enjoy! The children will have the opportunity to visit the school library once a week too. Please make sure your child’s library book is back in school the following week so that they can return it and get a new one.
