Welcome to Year 3!
Our teachers are Mrs Andre and Mrs Ryan and our Teaching Assistants are Mrs Barlow and Miss Bracken.
PE lessons are on Mondays and Wednesdays.
(We have been fortunate to be offered cricket coaching from the Chance to Shine team during Autumn 1. As a result, we will have a PE lesson on a Friday instead of a Wednesday up until October half-term.)
Two pieces of homework are allocated on a Thursday and they need to be submitted by the following Tuesday. Maths and English based homework tasks can be accessed via Seesaw initially and then through Google Classroom later in the academic year.
The children are expected to read a minimum of four times a week. This should be recorded in the reading record which will be checked on a weekly basis. There is a weekly rota for checking reading records and changing reading books. There is a note inside each child’s reading record reminding them which day their reading record will be checked and their reading book will be changed.
Spellings are set on a Tuesday and the children need to learn them in preparation for a spelling test the following Tuesday. Reading records need to be sent into school on Tuesdays in addition to the day allocated on the weekly rota for checking reading records and changing reading books so that new spelling lists can be stuck into the children’s reading records.
In order to support the children to develop an instant recall of multiplication and division facts, they will be assigned a times table or times tables to practise on a Friday, and then they will complete a tables-test the following Friday. The children will focus on the times tables for Years 2 and 3: 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8. Please encourage your child to focus on their assigned times table(s) for a short amount of time daily in order to increase their accuracy and speed.
Children in Year 3 are no longer provided with a piece of fruit or vegetable during morning break times. Therefore, fruit and vegetable snacks need to be brought into school.
