Welcome to Year 3

Year 3 is an exciting year for children as they become part of KS2! In year 3, our goal is to provide a fun, enriching yet challenging experience for all our pupils. We have high expectations and standards that we support our children to achieve.  We encourage all children to be active learners and to take responsibility for their own learning in order to achieve their targets and goals.

We welcome parents to actively participate and support in their child’s development and interaction with us. We request parents to support their children at home with their homework and to listen to their child read a few times a week.

 I am sure that with the support of parents and teachers working collaboratively, this will lead to the improvement of your child’s learning in every aspect of their life.  We teach and encourage our children to behave in an appropriate manner and to show a respectful attitude towards their learning and to members of the staff and other children.

Tell the children and they’ll forget,

Show them and they’ll remember,

Involve them and they’ll understand”

 

 

Useful information

 

Reading

 

 

Children should be reading at least 4 times a week and remember to sign and tick their log book. Children’s books will be changed once they have completed them and are able to answer questions regarding the text. Support your child’s reading at home by asking questions to develop their understanding of what they have read (see ‘How to help your child read at home on the School’s website).

PE

 

 

 

 

 

 

PE lessons will take place twice a week. This may include one PE lesson and one swimming lesson or two PE lessons, one including our PE coach.

Please make sure your child has the correct kit on these days.

Earrings to be left at home, if a child cannot     remove them bring in tape to cover.

Kit: black shorts, plain t-shirt in house colours or white, plimsolls/ trainers.

Long hair should be tied up.

Weekly Homework

Purple Mash

Maths & English homework will be handed out   every Friday and will be due by Wedensday. All weekly homework will be based on our weekly Maths & English topics to consolidate learning. We expect all children to complete their weekly homework to    high standard and hand it in on time.

Sometimes the class teacher may give children extra homework to complete based on the Topics they might be learning; this can be found on Purple Mash online. If the children have lost or forgotten their login, please speak to their class teacher.

Spelling test

 

 

Test on Friday

Spelling homework is handed out on Friday and children will be tested on Friday for Golden spellings and Read, Write Inc spellings will be tested on Friday.

Please help your child to practice them daily.

Trips

 

We are planning trips that fit in with our Topic curriculum in the Spring or summer term. These  will be confirmed closer to the time.

If you are able to help your child’s class on their trip, please speak to the class teacher.

Behaviour

 

 

 

 

There is a high expectation of pupils’ behaviour within our school. We expect children to treat each other and adults with respect at all times. If at any point the behaviour of children is unacceptable, the class teacher will follow the school’s behaviour  matrix when taking action. We are very lucky to   have parents that cooperate with the teachers to enhance their child’s behaviour both in and outside of school.
