We are really looking forward to working with your child and you this year. Below is some information about what to expect in year 3. Some things may be different to previous years as the children have now entered KS2. They will have more opportunity to grow in independence and have greater responsibility. We appreciate your continued support for your child’s learning. If you have any questions, please ask!
Your teachers this year are Mrs Wood, who teaches Monday to Wednesday, and Miss Hurndall, who teaches Wednesday to Friday. We are supported in class by our wonderful assistants Mrs Gures, Mrs Shepherd and Mrs Brown.
Mrs Homer is expected to return after October half term and will work on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
We love to read and hope that your child does too. There is an expectation that children read a part of their reading book every night. Children must bring their reading book and reading record into school every day. Every time they read 5 times at home, they receive a raffle ticket which gives them the chance to win a book of their choice at the end of each half term. All raffle tickets are kept throughout the year for the drawing of the grand prize at the end of the summer term.
Children have the freedom to choose which book they would like to read from a box in the corridor. They are now responsible for recording their reading, commenting on their book and scoring it out of 10! All children complete whole class reading every day, are able to choose books from the book corner in the classroom and have time to read for pleasure.
The children can also read online using Reading Eggs which is set at the correct level for them. The log in and password is the same as Mathletics and located in children’s reading records.
Children are given new spellings each week from Spelling Shed. We have a spelling lesson on a Monday afternoon and children are tested on the previous week’s spellings. If they score the same or higher, they receive a house point. Children are given time to learn and practise spellings during school hours, however, they can also access Spelling Shed from home.
3 Maple have PE on a Tuesday morning and a Friday afternoon. Please send them to school wearing their PE kit on these days. Always send children with a coat as we aim to be outside for PE whatever the weather! This half term we are learning how to play Hockey and Tag Rugby.
Kit required for P.E:
White T-shirt, black shorts and trainers. Warm navy/black tracksuit bottoms and jumper/hoodie when weather is cooler.
Please note earrings must be removed for PE or covered by tape provided by the parent.
All children have a mathletics session once a fortnight. They can also access Mathletics from home and earn lots of points for themselves and their class. Each week the class with the highest number of points wins the Mathletics trophy. High scorers also receive a certificate. Please log on and bring home that trophy! Log ins and passwords are inside the children’s reading records. Children can also log on to TTrockstars which is fantastic for learning multiplication tables.
Thank you for your ongoing support and we look forward to a brilliant year,
Mrs Wood, Miss Hurndall, Mrs Gures, Mrs Shepherd and Mrs Brown.
