The Curriculum News for Autumn, which will be published shortly, will outline all the areas of study in greater detail.
Staff in Year 3
Teachers - Mrs Knight-Thomas (Mon-Wed am), Mrs Carmichael (Wed-Fri).
Teaching Assistant (Mon-Fri am) - Miss Nicholls.
Home Reading Records - Please continue to read with your child in Year 3 as much as possible and record a minimum of 4 times in the Reading Record book. This should be handed in on a Monday morning to be checked, and then it is returned to your child. If your child reads a minimum of 4 times for 4 weeks (these don't have to be consecutive weeks) they will be rewarded with a sticker! Reading books will be handed out on a Monday.
Homework Diaries - Please make sure these are in school EVERY day and signed each Monday morning to confirm that your child has shown you their diary. Diaries should be handed in on a Monday and will be checked for a signature. They are a great means of communication between school and home, and the children will be writing in them often to send messages back from the teachers
Homework - This term, maths homework will be set on a Wednesday and should be handed in the following Monday morning. Later in the year, there will be two topic projects to be carried out at home but details will be sent out well in advance for these.
Spellings - a spelling test will take place on Monday mornings and new spellings will be handed out on a Tuesday.
Cracking Times Tables – will take place on a Thursday morning. This is a fun way for the children to learn their times tables, which are so important at this stage of their learning. It is important that the children spend some time at home learning their multiplication tables.
Library - we will visit the library on a Monday afternoon.
PE - PE lessons this half-term will take place on Monday and Thursday afternoons. On Mondays we will have Games and the children will be playing Netball. On Thursdays we will have Gymnastics. In the second half of this term, we will have Swimming on Thursday mornings.
We are looking forward to working with your children and having a great year!
Mrs Carmichael, Mrs Knight-Thomas, Miss Nicholls.
