Welcome to Year 3
Our class teacher is Mrs Jackson and our teaching assistant is Mrs Sains. Mrs Sains also teaches the class on a Friday.
We start our morning with a FlashBack 4 which is four maths questions to help us develop our understanding and knowledge retention of the whole maths curriculum. We follow this with a spelling session. Spelling lists or a spelling pattern will be sent home on a Monday ready for a quiz on Friday. We then have our Maths lesson before playtime which is at 10.30am. After break we have Whole Class Reading (WCR) which helps develop our reading skills and introduces the children to a wide range of different genres. This is sometimes our class book because in Year 3 we read some quite lengthy books that take time to complete, or it could also be a poem, play script or some non-fiction. This leads nicely into our English lesson that takes us up to lunch time at 12pm.
After lunch, we enjoy our foundation subject learning such as Science, History, Geography, French, Computing, Art and Design, PSHCE and RE and PE. Currently our P.E. day is a Monday so children need to come to school in appropriate footwear and bottoms.
Everyone has a reading book and reading record which should be brought into school daily. Please make sure your child’s reading record is signed by an adult once, each day when they have read at home. This could be their class book, a magazine, newspaper, comic or a book of their own from home. When your child has read and had their record signed 70 times they will be able to choose a free book of their choosing from school.
The children have access to an online game called ‘TT Rockstars’ which they can use both at home and at school. This is an excellent game to support the development of times table facts. If your child’s login details become lost or forgotten, please don’t hesitate to ask and we can provide a new one. There will also be some Maths or English homework set each week which will be given out each Friday and should be returned by Wednesday of the following week.
