Year 3

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

We recognise that this is another exciting and key year for our children. Although there will be many challenges and changes, now that you are in the Juniors, there will also be a lot of fun. As always, the school aims to prepare, support and nurture our children throughout their educational journey.

The class teachers for Year 3 are Miss Pierro and Mrs. Brewerton, who is job sharing with Miss Williams. Both classes will be supported by Mrs Windiate.

Curriculum

We aim to make the curriculum exciting and engaging for the children. If you look at the individual class blogs you will be able to see all of the brilliant learning that your children have been doing. Do we need to have overviews ready for link? The objectives for English, Maths and Reading can be found here, __________.

Homework

Homework creates an important opportunity for parents to be involved in their children’s learning, which we know has a direct impact on their progress. In Year 3 homework is set on Friday and due in by the following Thursday. This term there is a focus on times tables, spelling and grammar. If children have any questions regarding the homework set then they can discuss it with their class teacher before Thursday.

P.E.

P.E. is a vital and compulsory part of the National Curriculum and all children will be expected to participate unless there is a medical reason supported with a letter from home. Lessons take place on Alternate Wednesdays/Thursday and every Friday. We aim for all lessons to take place outside (where appropriate), therefore, the correct clothing is vital. For health and hygiene reasons it is very important that the children have a compete change of clothes.  A plain white shirt, black or green shorts and trainers are required.  As it gets colder your child will need black or grey jogging bottoms and plain sweat top.

Pencil Cases

As the school provides all stationery equipment needed by the children there is no need for them to bring their own equipment. If your child wishes to bring stationery equipment to school, it must fit within their tray.

Water Bottles

We encourage children to bring a named water bottle to school, as we know hydration aids concentration and learning.

Electronics and Toys

To ensure the safety of the children’s belongings it is not permissible for them to bring toys or electronic devises from home into school. Any mobile phones must be handed to their class teacher at the start of the day.  To keep these safe, they will be locked away for the duration of the day, and returned at home time.

Communication

We understand that good communication between school and parents is vital. The quickest way to contact us is to email the office or the teacher.  However, if there is a problem or this is not possible, please do not hesitate to speak to your class teacher at the start or end of the day.
