Welcome to Year 3
Please look at class pages for more information to support your child and for photos and information about your child’s learning in school.
Here are a few things you might like to know about our year group.
Although there is some fluctuation, the Year 3 day generally looks like this:
0900:The bell rings at 09am for us to walk into school together. Children with siblings starting earlier are to come to the office where they will wait in the school hall until 09am.
0900: During the register, the children get their diary signed so we can see who reads frequently, then do math morning work, read with a teacher or participate in an intervention.
0930: English lesson
1030: Break time
1045: Maths lesson
1300:Corrections/pleasure for reading during afternoon registration
1430: Afternoon break
1515: Home time
PE is on a Monday and a Wednesday Please ensure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit.
What will the children need in school?
Everyday each child should bring to school their book bag or a small bag containing their reading record and reading book. Books will be changed every day. Please ensure your child reads to an adult every day for approximately 10 minutes.
Each child should have a named water bottle and can bring a healthy fruit/plain biscuit as a snack for breaktime.
Home Learning is posted on the Year 3 Google Classroom each Tuesday and spellings are given out on this day too.
Please ensure home learning is completed and uploaded onto the Google Classroom by Monday.
Our spelling tests are also on a Monday.
Children will be set page numbers to complete in either a SPAG or maths workbook.
Doodle maths learning will also be set. It is beneficial if children could use this little and often (eg. 10 minutes a day/ 20 minutes every other day).
Additional learning: Children are encouraged to practise their Numeracy skills by completing a Daily Ten challenge.
Show and Tell:
We love hearing about all of the exciting things that do at home. Please post any pictures to the class stream on our Google Classroom and will share your news with the class.
Thanks for all of your continued support,
Ms Smillie, Mrs Talbot and Miss Davenport
