Welcome to Year 3
Class teacher: Mrs Jane Roberts Class teacher: Mrs Amanda Barnett
Teaching Assistant: Mrs Sarah Clapham Teaching Assistant: Mrs Tina Roden
We ask children to read at home every day, when possible. We also request that children are asked a range of comprehension questions to help increase their understanding of what has been read. unless otherwise agreed, reading at home needs to be signed off by an adult.
We change books on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, however we ask that all reading diaries and books are brought to school every day.
Year 3 homework is set and sent home on a Friday. This needs to be completed and handed in on the following Wednesday. The homework consists of 10 spellings made up of the Year 3/4 common exception words from the national curriculum and some words that are frequently misspelled. Children need to practise their times tables either on paper or on Times Tables Rockstars. There will be occasional topic homework tasks to complete with their family.
Year 3 have P.E sessions on a Wednesday afternoon. We ask that P.E kits are left in school for the term as there are times when we may have an additional P.E session or a change to the timetabling of the P.E teaching.
Contacting your child’s teacher:
If you feel you need to talk to your child’s teacher please do not hesitate to contact the office to make an appointment or see us after school at the door. We can take a quick message at the door in the morning, but please be aware that after school is better for a longer conversation.
