Welcome to Year 3!
We are keen to promote a love of reading and the children will be reading in school every day. On Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday they will take part in Reciprocal Reading – discussing and reading a shared book in a group. Monday will be our Guided Reading lesson when we read a class text to focus on comprehension skills.
Homework will be set on Teams on a Friday and needs to be handed in by the following Thursday. This will usually be Frog Maths and a Spelling activity, but may be some research or topic related work on occasions.
We have two sessions of PE timetabled on Wednesday and Thursday and children will need ot wear their kit to school on these days. We will be taking part in the 'daily mile' on days we do not have a PE lesson, to encourage being active and making healthy choices.
Water Bottles and Snacks
Children need to have a clearly-named water bottle in school each day. As lunchtime is slightly later for KS2, a healthy snack for playtime is a good idea.
Our classroom has a lovely outdoor space and is close to the pond so we will be taking care of these spaces.
If you have any questions or concerns, please drop in to see us or call in at the office.
