What a great time to be in Year 3!
Class Teacher: Mrs Allan
LSAs: Ms Awan and Mrs Steele (Thursday & Friday)
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to talk to one of the Year 3 team.
Reading at home
We cannot stress enough how important it is for your child to read at home! Reading is brilliant and we want to encourage children to do it as much as possible. We are going to be reading books together as a class but we would also like the children to read regularly at home. They will have a reading folder to take home and a reading log to record any reading they do. We would like them to read at least 5 times during the week – this can be anything that they are interested in reading, not just books, but useful information that they need, such as (appropriate) websites, television guides, menus, magazines… the list is endless! The reading logs should be returned on their set days, and will be checked with children given the opportunity to read with us.
Homework is sent out each Friday to be handed in the following Friday. Each week, tasks are set to either consolidate or continue what is being taught within the classroom. Each task will have a different focus and style of activity to keep the children’s learning interesting. We ask parents to support us with reading with their child every week and completing spelling and times tables tasks sent out. We will also be sending a set list of spellings out every Friday. These are the Year 3 common exception words. Please ensure that your child practises their spellings, as there will be a test every Friday morning.
Please can you ensure your child brings their full P.E kit in on their P.E day.
PE days- Tuesday and Thursday.
PE kit consists of: a plain white t-shirt, black shorts and black PE pumps. Children may wear black jogging pants and a jumper in the colder months if they go outside. Due to the limited space we have in the cloakroom in our classroom, please can children refrain from bringing in large rucksacks/handbags. They are too big for the pegs and children cannot hang their coats up properly. Instead, we encourage them to bring the green school reading book bags to put their belongings in.
Thank you for your co-operation with this.
Water bottles & snacks
Don’t forget to bring water bottles in each day - it is important for the children to stay hydrated throughout the day. Please put a label on bottles and refill them every day.
Children can purchase milk cartons at the beginning of each half term (see the school office) and bring a healthy snack for break time.
We would like to remind you the importance of pupils regularly using Times Tables Rockstars, and practicing their times tables. Fluency in this area can often help children with many other areas of Maths. Don't forget to keep your eye out for all of our TTRS competitions!
Please make sure you are regularly checking seesaw for updates regarding what your child has been up to in school. We put pictures on throughout the week showing what the children are engaging with in their learning.
We also set weekly homework on Seesaw. We would like children to engage in this as well as completing their weekly spelling homework. Seesaw is a fun and engaging learning platform that can further support your child's learning.
