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. We are excited about being able to start straightaway on our new, bigger and better classroom. Mrs Watson and Miss Jones have been very busy setting it up. Have a look at the photos below.
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 ask if there is anything that you or your child are unsure about. Once our new corridor is complete, you will be very 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 day in Year 3 will be on a Friday. Additional days will be added over the year.
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. Work can always be completed on paper and glued in at school. 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.
Copies of the home learning booklets are added here half termly. Please check back here in a few days for the first booklet.
Ug: Boy Genius by Raymond Briggs
A very humorous cartoon-style book to start the year off and to link to our topic. I'm sure the children will enjoys Ug's parents' hilarious reactions to his 'modern' ideas.
Our Topic is ...
The Stone Age to The Iron Age
We will be looking at daily life and how it changed throughout this period. Please feel free to start researching. If your child finds something that they would like to share with us, they can always make a poster and hand it in as their home learning!
See below for more information about what we are learning this half term.
