Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

 

Our teaching team is made up of Mr Simmonds and Mrs Heale in class 3HS, Mrs Stanbrook in class 3S and Mrs Whitehouse in class 3W. Our Teaching Assistants this year are Miss Day, Mrs Clarke, Miss McGhan and Mr Murphy. We are extremely excited to be working with your children this coming year and have many exciting learning opportunities planned.

 

Our first topic is called Tomb Raiders. During this term we will begin by identifying the location of Egypt and its' geographical features. We will go on to explore how people lived, the roles people had within society and investigate the inventions and achievements which occurred during the time of ancient Egypt. Later in the year we will be exploring the themes of the Stone Age and extreme survival.

 

We will be placing important emphasis on the teaching of English and Maths each day and throughout the curriculum. We are also launching Accelerated Reader with Year 3 this year. AR is a reading programme that is individualised to each child. They will read books and take tests in order to progress towards their own target. If they hit their target by the end of the half term they save a reading bug from the clutches of Evil Mr Booth. You can support your child by listening to them read their AR books everyday and asking them questions about the text.

 

Homework is being undertaken through the POWer Projects each half term. The books should be returned on a Monday to be marked and then children can take them home and do another activity. Each activity is worth a number of points and children are aiming to gain as many points as possible with prizes awarded each half term.

We will also be providing additional maths homework each week. This will be given out on Fridays and required back on the following Monday. The maths homework will consolidate learning in our maths lessons that week. 

Spellings will be given out each Tuesday. The lists should be taken home and practised ready for the test on the following Tuesday. At school, we will learn about these words and how to use them in our writing.

 

We will update our pages regularly in the near future to keep you informed of forthcoming events and important news.

 

Should you have any questions regarding your child's time in Year 3 please feel free to approach your child's class teacher who will be more than happy to help you. 

 

 

P.E. WILL BE ON A MONDAY AFTERNOON.


Please send your child dressed in school uniform with their P.E kits (including trainers and water bottles) in their bag. They will change for P.E after lunch.

Thanks to everyone who attended the Christmas fete.
