Year 3

Welcome to Year Three!

 

 

OUR CLASS

In our class we are the persevering panthers because we always persevere and try our best. We all love a challenge and understand that making mistakes is just part of learning.

STAFFING
Our class teacher is Miss Everitt and our wonderful teaching assistant in Year 3 is Mrs Bullin. We also have the amazing Mrs Brabbs and Mrs Kerr in class for PPA cover and training days.

 

COMMUNICATION
This year I will be communicating with Parents via the Class Dojo app that you have previously used. You do not need to reconnect or change anything about your parent account.

PE days

Please bring your PE kit into school on a Monday and leave this in school all week. PE days are on a Tuesday and Friday and both indoor and outdoor kits are needed.
Indoor kit - red shorts, white t-shirt and trainers. Outdoor kit - jogging bottoms, white t-shirt, jumper/hoodie and trainers.

 

 

Maths 

This year the children will need to learn their 3, 4 and 8 times tables. This will be in addition to the 2, 5 ad 10 x tables that your child should already know. Each child should be able to recall all of their times tables at speed in preparation of their multiplication check next year. In order to help your child achieve this, school has subscribed to a platform called Times Table Rockstars, this is available both online and as an App (Free for you to download) . Please encourage your child to play this app at least three times a week for approximately ten minutes as this will help them greatly with their school work. Rewards will be given in class for children who play 5x a week - please play a 'soundcheck game' as this allows me to track the days that you logon. 

Rockstars logins are on your child's reading record - they have not changed from last year.

Reading

In Year 3 reading is very important and as such your child is asked to continue reading at home as much as possible. Please could we ask that you read with your child at least 5 times a week and record this in their reading records. Reading really does make such a huge improvement to learning!

  Each time your child reads at home they will gain a raffle ticket. At the end of each half term, we draw the raffle for lucky pupil to win the reading raffle prize! The more times you read the more chance you get to win!

As a school, we have also signed up to www.oxfordowl.co.uk 
 
Oxford Owl for Home: help your child learn at home | Oxford Owl
This website allows the children to read an amazing selection of free Ebooks
at home on their phone, tablet, Ipad, laptop or computer!

Spellings

Your child will have a weekly spelling test that takes place on a Friday. Spellings will be sent home with your child every Friday and need to be returned the following week. Children will earn Dojo rewards for their completed spelling sheets. This year children have access to a website called Spelling Shed where they are able to practice their weekly spellings. 
Spelling Shed logins are on your child's reading record.
