Year 3 2019 - 2020
WELCOME TO YEAR 3!
I’m really pleased to have the opportunity to work with you and your wonderful children; I look forward to getting to know you and your child and working together so that we have a very exciting and successful first year of juniors.I am very fortunate to have Mrs Gardiner working alongside and between us we hope to ensure your child has an exciting, happy and fulfilling year.
Please can you ensure your child has got an art shirt in school – I would hate for their lovley new uniforms to be spoilt!
This term PE lessons will be on Wednesdays and Thursdays- all children will need their kits, both indoor and outdoor, on these days. However, it is helpful if children have PE kits in school all week in case of changes to timetables.
In Year 3, children are expected to do no more than 120 minutes per week on homework; this includes their reading, spelling and times tables practise. Each week they will have maths homework to complete together with English homework, except when a piece of creative homework has been set. Creative homework will have an extended deadline of 2 weeks to complete. Homework will be given out on a Friday and returned by the following Wednesday. A homework club has been set up on a Friday if anyone would like to take advantage of this help.
Children are expected to change their own books regularly. Although many of the children are already confident readers, it is important for them to read to adults as much as possible; try to read with your child three times a week. When you are reading together, ask as many probing questions about what you have read, to help develop the children’s reading comprehension, as it will help them greatly. A reading record will be used to communicate between staff and home to inform of progress that has been made, and should be used to record where the children have read to an adult, or read on their own.
Getting in touch
If you wish to speak to me or have any concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the staff as soon as possible. This can be done either through the school office, by emailing email@example.com, or at the end of the day on the playground.
