Year Three

Hello and welcome to Year Three!

Our whole Year Three team is here to support your child’s learning and development this year.

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome your child and yourselves to Year Three.

The Year Three team are: Ms Jade Lam, Ms Farjana Begum, Ms Michelle Bonsor, Ms Nikki, Ms Sumi, Ms Salma and Ms Zaneb. Our support staff work with groups and work one-to-one with individual children during lessons. Other members of staff will also be running interventions to support children’s learning.

There will be lots of exciting learning taking place this year in all areas of the curriculum. Some of the things your child will be learning in English will be to read and write adventure stories, poems, traditional tales and legends. They will also work with non-fiction texts, including explanations and reports. In maths, they will: develop their counting and place value skills; be able to answer calculations both mentally and on paper; begin to explore fractions; measure; and apply different strategies to solve problems. In the afternoons, your child will take part in: science, art, DT, history, geography, computing, music, PE, RE and PSHE lessons. A range of exciting trips have been planned throughout the year to support and extend their learning.

Reading

Reading is very important. Your child will have regular reading sessions in class, but they would also benefit greatly from further reading at home too. Each child will take home a levelled class book and a library book (of their choice) each week.  Each child will have a reading diary to record their reading achievements- please check and sign these regularly. Please make sure that book bags (with their books inside) are brought into school each day. Our library slots are on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon.

Homework

Each week your child will receive a list of spellings (spelling test each Monday afternoon), maths and English homework, which will allow them to consolidate the learning that has taken place in class.  

Homework will be given out on a Friday and needs to be completed by the following Friday.

PE

Year Three will have PE on Monday afternoons and on Thursday afternoons.

Please make sure that your child brings in a full PE kit for each PE lesson.  Each item in the PE kit needs to be named.

For PE, each child should wear dark coloured shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms and a white T-shirt.  Children need to wear trainers or pumps for outdoor PE.

 

Please remember …

  • to tell the office or your child’s teacher if someone other than yourself will be collecting your child at the end of the day.
  • to write your child’s name in their coat, uniform and PE kit
  • to make sure your child brings a reusable water bottle
  • not to use your mobile phones within school or in the school playground
  • to check the school’s website for the weekly newsletter (paper copies are available in the school office)
  • to download SchoolPing- to keep up to date with the latest news 

If you have any concerns or questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Year Three team at the end of the school day.

Thank you for all your support

The Year Three Team
