Welcome to Year 3

 

 

Year 3 staff: Mrs Britton, Miss Adams, Mrs Dobson and Mrs Salt

Welcome to the class page for Year 3, here you will find out some information about timetable and class expectations. Year 3 marks the beginning of KS2, which means the children will be starting to work more independently.

Year 3 also marks an important year for the Catholic children in their journey through the Sacraments. This year they will take part in Reconciliation and then make their First Holy Communion. These are very special times which will help bring the children closer to God. More information will be given to you about these events closer to the time. 

Homework

In Year 3 you will receive the following homework, we expect homework to be completed on time. Homework will be given out on Thursday and due in the following Thursday. 

Reading - This should continue nightly and Year 3 staff will check reading records regularly to make sure it is happening.

Practise Times Tables - This should again be happening regularly at home to make sure you are confident with the 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8x tables.

Spellings - These will be set on a Thursday  and tested on the following Thursday. Pupils have a booklet to complete through each week which gives them the opportunity to revise their spellings.

Occasionally, there will be projects set to complete linked to our theme in class. These will replace normal homework and the children will be given plenty of time to do them.

General Reminders

PE: We have PE on Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure your child's NAMED kit is in school and if they have long hair that it is tied back, or earrings are taken out or covered on those days.

Pencil cases: Children will not need a pencil case for their work in Year 3. We have everything they need in class. 

Water bottles: Please ensure that your child brings a water bottle for the classroom, containing water only.

If you have any queries or concerns, please contact our school office on 01782 235340. They will listen and support you, passing on relevant information to your child's class teacher. Dependent on the concern, your child's teacher may give you a call.

Alternatively, please use our KS2 email address to contact your child's class teacher directly: year3@stgca.org.uk
