It is hard to believe that this is the last term already, the year has gone very quickly. The term will focus on our topic of the Egyptians, with a trip to the Ashmolean to see the Egyptian exhibits.
The first week begins with PE on Monday afternoon to prepare the children for District sports. It is vital that all children have their PE kits and trainers so could you please remind them to bring their kit in.
In addition to RM Easimaths the children have been asked to learn their times tables. We are still having regular 4 minute challenges for the 3,4 and 8 times tables most days to track progression. It would be very advantageous for the children if they could learn these at home. Also if you received a letter regarding your child being signed up for Nessy, could you please help them complete activities at home to compliment sessions they will undertake at school.

To support the development of essential Maths skills, we have set up a trial for the next two terms of RM Easimaths.
Designed to support the Math activities taking place in class, RM Easimaths enables children to continue learning while away from school.
Each child accesses RM Easimaths using their own user account and is given activities to complete that match their own learning stage. The video on this link http://www.rm.com/products/rm-easimaths provides an overview of RM Maths. Please not e there is nothing for you to pay as this is covered by the school trial/subscription.
All children can access RM Easimaths via this link https://www.rmeasimaths.com/.
All of year 3 have been provided with a username and password. If your child cannot recall their username and password, please make sure they ask me for a reminder.
Accessing RM Easimaths is simple. On a desktop computer, you can use the RM Easimaths website. Alternatively, you can download the RM Easimaths app to a mobile device. This app is free with a school subscription.
Your child will need to enter their username and password. Make sure you leave 'Stlawrence' in the field after the @ sign, as shown below. It won't be possible to login without this.
If you are using a tablet, download an app from the Apple or Google Play app store.
To ensure that you are not charged for anything, we recommend that you disable in-app purchases on all devices that your child may use in order to prevent accidental in-app purchases.
If you are having problems running RM Easimaths on your home computer, there are a few simple steps to follow that should allow Easimaths to run correctly. In addition to completing these steps, your child should confirm that they have logged in to RM Easimaths at school. If they have not been able to login at school, please ensure your child asks my advice.

This week I will be familiarising myself with the children's reading. Once this is completed I will allocate reading books and give each child a new reading record book. In the meantime, please continue reading books from home and using the old reading record books to record it.
