Welcome to Year 3.
We have enjoyed welcoming your child into year 3. The children have all settled in brilliantly - we are really proud of them. Please see the information below for any information you may need, and keep an eye on this page for information which we will update regularly.
The teachers in year 3 are Mrs Lear, Mrs Williams and Mrs Mason. The TAs working with year 3 are Mrs Rudalska and Miss Kenyon.
If your child would like a snack at break time you will need to provide it for them at this current time. It needs to be a type of fruit or vegetable please.
If your child would like to drink water during the day please can you provide them with a separate water bottle for the classroom? Water bottles are available from school for £1. Please label ALL of the children's equipment clearly with their name.
Children are to bring their PE kits to school with them on the correct day. They will get changed in school this term. It would be helpful to bring the kit into school and leave it here until we send it home to be washed. Please ensure all items are labelled clearly with your child's name.
Outdoor kits are outdoor trainers, tracksuit bottoms, a white t-shirt and a warm sweatshirt/hooded top. Children cannot wear earrings or watches for PE lessons so it would help if they didn’t wear them on these days. Long hair should always be tied back please.
The junior department has a reading incentive scheme called The Reading Rainbow. Children are encouraged to read their books every day and get the signature of an adult at home each day. We encourage children to read their own books, magazines, comics etc which can also be included in the diary.
· One read per day can be gained.
· Each daily ‘read’ is added up and 15 reads earns the children a certificate on the rainbow.
· Children attain 3 certificates on a colour before moving along the rainbow to the next colour.
· Once the third coloured certificate is achieved the children receive a certificate from the Headteacher.
Reading books will be allocated slightly differently from usual because of the present times. Reading books will be sent home on a Friday and need to be returned to school by the following Wednesday. This means that the books can be quarantined before being sent home.
It is very important that the children bring their reading books and diaries in on a Wednesday in order to ensure that their books are changed and to keep this process as smooth as possible.
Regular reading will help children with their spelling, their grammar and their imagination when writing themselves. Please don’t feel pressured to read too much each evening. It would be more beneficial to read a little and talk to the children about the text in order to check their understanding.
