Welcome to our Year 3 classes; 3B who are taught by Mrs Brandon and assisted by Mrs Bussler, and 3R class, who are taught by Mr Ray, and supported by Mrs Redpath.
It is a very exciting time as children move from KS1 to KS2. This year, our aim is to build on all the brilliant learning that the children did in year 2 by developing their confidence, increasing their independence and challenging their understanding.
In Year 3 we would encourage you to listen to your child read as much as possible. We do understand that after school clubs and general life can sometimes get in the way so we ask for at least 10mins, 4 times a week. This can be recorded in your child’s reading record.
We are spending a lot of time looking at spelling rules and your child will have weekly spellings to accompany this rule which will be tested on a Thursday. We also regularly use ICT to help us with our maths learning. If you have access to a computer then 'Topmarks' is a great resource for a variety of extra maths practise. We will not be sending formal, weekly maths homework home, however your child may, from time to time, come home with something to practise.
Many children find telling the time particularly difficult at this stage, so any additional support you can give at home with this subject is very beneficial.
We will also send home a learning log task sheet to accompany a new topic, you and your child can then choose which homework activities you want to do over the half term/term. The children are always incredibly proud of the work they do at home and we love to celebrate it with them in school.
Here are some useful web links to support your child this year.
