Welcome to Year 3!
Welcome to Year Three!
Let's introduce the team:
Miss Hill - Class 10 & Head of Year
Miss Stanley - Class 11
Miss Everitt - Class 12
Miss Berry, Mrs Osgood, Mrs Garcia and Mrs Fry will also be supporting the children’s learning in Year 3. Mr Aldred and Mrs Kenward will cover Planning, Preparation and Assessment time (PPA) for the year group.
Start and end of school day
Each morning your child should line up (in classes) outside the Year 3 entrance. The Year 3 entrance opens at 8:30am. Although teachers are happy to talk with parents briefly at this time, we ask that if you have a more detailed matter to discuss you arrange a mutually convenient time after school.
If your child attends breakfast club, they can enter school via the main entrance at 8:30am. After they have eaten their breakfast they will be sent to their classrooms for morning registration.
At the end of the school day (2:50pm), the children also leave via the Year 3 door. With three classes leaving via one door. The area outside the Year 3 zone will be split into three areas (in the same order as the lines in the morning) and staff will take their class to their area: Class 10 on the far end, Class 11 in the middle and Class 12 just outside the door. During this time, class teachers are focused on ensuring children are safely reunited with their parents so, again, we ask that parents wait until a convenient/safe opportunity to talk to staff if needed.
Physical Education (P.E) and Games
P.E and Games will be taught twice weekly. All children will need both indoor and outdoor kit. The whole school also take part in a daily run with the aim of building up to running a mile a day .It is vital they have the correct, labelled kit in school at all times.
All classes will have the opportunity to experience our ‘Forest School’ during the school year. For these sessions, they will need old clothes, a waterproof coat (that you don’t mind getting muddy), waterproof trousers if you have them and a pair of wellingtons.
Once the children have settled into their new school routine, we will begin sending homework out. This will be handed out on a Thursday and due in the following Tuesday. Please support your child in completing homework on time and to the best of their ability.
Spelling and Maths
Spelling and maths homework will be set once a week and will relate to what they have been learning about that week. We also have access to a fantastic online times tables resource called Times Tables Rock Stars. Each child will be given a login and will work on time tables targets set by their teacher.
We expect your child to read daily. Please ensure your child’s reading book is in school every day, along with their reading record. Every time they read, you should sign the reading record with what pages they have read. This allows the teachers to keep track of how much children are reading.
We need parent/ carers to help listen to readers on a weekly basis. Please let us know if you are interested with times and dates you are available (we are very flexible).
