I hope you had a lovely and much needed rest over the Summer holidays. This letter should inform you of class routines in Year 3.
The year 3 team consists of myself and Mrs Fullick. Mrs Yeandle will teach the class alternate Fridays to cover PPA.
This half term our learning will focus around the theme of ‘The Railway Revolution’. Next half term’s theme is ‘Our European Neighbours’. Please find attached a curriculum overview which outlines what we will be covering in our learning. This can also be viewed on our Year 3 page on the school website.
PE will take place on Mondays and Fridays. Don’t forget that children will need to arrive already dressed in their PE kit and will stay in this kit all day. They have yoga on a Monday and Tag Rugby on a Friday.
Year 3 are expected to complete practice spellings and times tables and read to an adult at least 5 times a week. Ideally your child should read daily as this will support their access to the curriculum and develop their vocabulary. Please find our spellings on our class page.
Please continue to listen to your child read regularly and record this in their reading diary. The children should be reading to someone every day for 5 – 10 minutes. It is important that they have the opportunity to talk about the book that they are reading.
Please note that every Friday I will be holding a Reading Raffle where any children who have read at least 3 times a week will receive a raffle ticket. I will then draw 2 tickets and those lucky children with the matching numbers will get a prize.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me. Additionally, I can be emailed at firstname.lastname@example.org or you can send me a message on the Class Dojo.
