Y3

Welcome to Year 3!!

 

Hello everyone - Welcome to Year 3.  Our teacher is Mrs Devitt and our teaching assistants are Ms Freeman and Mrs Collinge.  

 

Please note that due to our staggered start time, our class are starting school at 8:50am and finishing at 3:10,  Children need to enter and leave from the cloakroom door in the big yard. 

 

In Year 3 we are very excited about our topics this year, stand by to  learn about the Ancient Egyptians, the Rainforest, the human body, volcanoes and earthquakes.  We are looking forward to reading some fabulous picture books and mesmerising novels. Keep checking back on this page for more exciting updates.  As we complete work, photograohs and information will be added to our subpages below.  

Each day, children will need to bring a water bottle to school, along with their reading book and diary.  These should come to school in a book bag which can be placed into the child's tray. Large rucksacks are not suitable. Packed lunches should be bought to school in a named washable container. 

 

Reading

Children are expected to read each night and have their diary signed.  Adults at home should discuss the reading with their child and discuss plot, characters and settings.  Guidance on this will be in reading diaries each week. 

 

Homework. 

Each week children will be set a piece of English and a piece of Maths homework.  There will also be spelling rules to work on and multiplication tables to be learnt.  By the end of year 3, children are expected to know their 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables.  TT rockstars is available for all children and homework may be paper based or online via purple mash. 

 

 PE

Our PE days  are Wednesday and Thursday.  Children need to have an indoor and outdoor PE kit, consisting of white t shirt, black shorts or leggings, and trainers.  Children will need a warm tracksuit for outdoor sports.  On a Friday morning, we will be going into the Environmental area.  Children will need to have a suitable change of footwear for this ( and possibly a change of clothing in more unsettled weather).  All of these should be labelled with your child's name and in a drawstring bag which can be hung in the cloakroom.  

 

Class Dojo

Our behaviour management system is based on class dojo.  Children earn dojo points for a variety of positive behaviours.  A point will be removed as a sanction for unacceptable behaviour in line with our behaviour management policy.  Parents will be contacted via the message facility regarding any school matters and I would recommend having notifications turned on for this. 

 

Parent pay

We are a cashless school.  All money for school lunches, trips and equipment should be paid via the parent pay website.  If you do not have a log in for this, please speak to Mrs Zinga or Mrs Maguire in the school office.
