Parents and Children – Welcome to Year 3 – 2022-2023!

Dear Parents – Thank you to those of you who attended the Meet the Teacher presentation. It was great to meet you. If you were unable to attend and would like to say hello then you are welcome to say hello to me at pickup time. Here is a copy of the presentation:

 

Important Reminders:

Children will be let out at the end of the day at 3.10pm – please collect your child from our classroom door.

Children can have a healthy snack at play time, please can they leave it in their book bag or packed lunch box. Please ensure that no nuts are brought to school as there are children who attend our school that have severe nut allergies.

Year 3 has PE every Wednesday and Thursday. Please remember that PE kit must be worn to school on those days.

You will need a red top, black shorts or jogging bottoms and plimsolls. School jumpers can be worn too.

We are really lucky to have a violin teacher taking the class for lessons every Tuesday. Letters will be sent out soon regarding home and school violin learning opportunities.

Spellings are given each week on a Friday to be practiced at home with other homework.  Spellings will be tested the following week at school.

Times tables will be tested in online and written form every week using Times Tables Rock Stars.

There are many other online and interactive games which can help you practice maths. Here are a couple of recommendations: https://www.topmarks.co.uk/maths-games/7-11-years/ordering-and-sequencinghttps://mathsframe.co.uk/ 

Please read at home regularly. Reading makes a huge difference to our writing as we learn new and exciting words.  Can you spot any onomatopoeia?  What new vocabulary can you find? You can record what you have read and share comments for Mr Kenderdine (on reading or any other part of your homework) in your homework books.

Our Virtual Library has some really good books if you are looking for something to read!
