Hi all and welcome to Year 3’s web page!
Year 3 is taught by Mrs Clews, (who teaches on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) and Mrs Wright, (who teaches on Thursday and Friday). Mrs Hutchinson will be in class all week. We ensure that we share all information about the children’s needs and learning and work together as a team.
Reading and Home Learning
Reading at home and sharing a book with your child is really important. Your child will be bringing home a reading book at night. This is so they always have access to a reading book. When your child finishes their book please bring their reading bag in to school so that your child can choose a new book. They will also bring home a reading journal that they need to write a few lines about the book they have read. We will keep a record of the books they read and give out certificates for every ten books that have been read. Please help us to help your child by reading with them after school and encouraging them to read independently each day.
He/she will also bring home spellings every week. Children need to practise their spellings ready for their spelling test on Thursday. These do not need to be brought back to school but are for your child to learn at home. Other homelearning, includes Numeracy, Literacy and a number of topic based tasks to complete and will be given on a Friday. This needs to be completed and returned to school by Wednesday of the following week.
Swimming and P.E.
Children will continue to have swimming lessons this year. Lessons will be on a Friday until February half term. Children will need to bring their swimming kit in on Friday mornings. PE for your child will be every Wednesday. The PE kit should be in school for your child to use every week. Our PE kit includes black shorts, a white t-shirt and black school pumps. Black school pumps should be kept in school at all times in case of extra P.E. activities.
Our topics this year include, How far can you throw your shadow? Who first lived in Britain? What makes the Earth angry? What do rocks tell us about the way the Earth was formed? Why do so many people choose to go to the Mediterranean for their holidays? How can Usain Bolt run so fast?
We hope you enjoy Year 3 and if you have any questions , please feel free to talk to us at any time.
Yours sincerely Mrs Clews, Mrs Wright and Mrs Hutchinson
