Mrs Lesser, the class teacher, and Miss Blackmore (Year 3 TA) welcome you to Year 3. We are looking forward to a fun-filled year.
Please help support your child at home by encouraging them to learn their Times Tables. If you need any fun ways of doing this please see either Miss Blackmore or myself for some tips.
In year 3 we work hard and enjoy challenges. Learning is fun and we aim to become confident, independent learners as the year progresses.
Please ensure that all items of stationery and clothing are marked so that the children can easily identify their belongings.
We would like to emphasise the importance of PE as a curriculum subject. Therefore can you please ensure that PE kits are in school everyday, including trainers.
All the children started swimming this week and had a splash of a time!
We set homework daily, except for Wednesday, and it is important that all homework is neatly completed and handed in by the due date.
Spelling words are given out on a Monday. We revise them during the week in class but it is still necessary to learn these words at home for Friday’s spelling test.
Please can Parents/Carers sign the homework book weekly.
Reading is very important and we would like the children to have a reading book with them every day. School reading books / library books will be changed as soon as possible after the homework diary states that the book has been read and is signed by a parent/carer.
We also encourage the children to use Mathletics. Mathletics allows the children to become confident with a range of maths skills and principles.
Outdoor PE is on a Tuesday.
Swimming on Tuesday and Wednesday. (Half on each day)
Mon - Spellings (Test on Fri)
Tues - GPS (Due in Thurs)

We can work as a team ......We are considerate.....We are enthusiastic.....
