Welcome to Class 3
In Year 3 you will find Mrs Watson, Miss Jones and Mr Fielder (Friday afternoons).
We hope you've all had an enjoyable summer break and that the children are ready and raring to go! They certainly worked hard and behaved brilliantly during our transition sessions.
All classes are slightly different and so, over the first couple of weeks, we will be helping the children to adapt to new routines. Please feel free to pop in and ask if there is anything that you or your child are unsure about. You are always welcome to come into the classroom between 8:35 and 8:45 in the morning or to chat to us after school (Mr Fielder on a Friday afternoon).
The register is taken and learning begins at 8:45 am. Please encourage your child to be on time.
It is expected that every child reads at home on a daily basis.
Your child will choose both a reading book and a library book.
Library books are of your child's own choosing. He/She may need some help reading these or may like to be read to.
Reading books should be within your child's ability. These may be returned on any day, as and when they have been read. Your child will need to choose another book and record the title in his/her reading log with the date. Please date and sign as you hear your child read. As well as listening, please ask lots of questions to deepen understanding. Even very independent children benefit from this!
I have several lovely parents who have volunteered to hear readers before school until 9:00am. If you feel that you can spare some time, please speak to Mrs Watson.
Our PE days in Year 3 have still to be agreed. Please check back here later.
Please ensure your child has a PE kit in school with appropriate footwear. If your child wears earrings please make sure these are removed for PE days or taped up before coming to school. It's always advisable to leave PE kits in school, as lessons can change at short notice.
Encourage your child to choose a task from their home learning booklet each week and to complete it in their home learning book. Children will receive dojos when they return their home learning (by Thursday each week please). Home learning books are then marked and returned on Friday ready for the following week.
