Welcome to Year 3
Year 3 is an exciting and challenging year full of learning and fun. Class 3 is full of energy and they are extremely inquisitive. They love to ask questions and to be competitive with each other.
Year 3 Staff
Miss Werrett is our teacher and Mrs Drewniak and Mr Crawley are our teaching assistants.
Mrs Spence is our class governor.
Please look at our Year 3 Long Term Overview 20-21 to find out what we will be learning about this year.
You can find our more about our learning by visiting the Curriculum section of our website.
Our homework policy now focuses on spellings, times tables and reading. Spellings will now be given out at the beginning of each half term but the children will be tested on a different rule/pattern each Friday. A chosen times table will be tested each Friday; this will be indicated on the half termly spelling sheet.
Please continue to listen to your child read or ensure they are reading independently at least three times a week and sign their reading record.
In Key Stage 2 we complete whole class guided reading sessions several times a week so all children have a chance to read aloud. They can explore a range of texts as a class and build confidence in public speaking.
Spelling lists are created for each half-term. Children need to practise the spelling list that they have been told is appropriate for them. However, if one week, your child is finding the spellings too easy or challenging, they are able to learn some of the different spellings in one of the other lists. All children will complete ‘Practice’, ‘Develop’ or ‘Expert’ spellings unless parents have been informed otherwise.
Please find the spelling lists for each term below:
Don’t forget that you the children can also practise their spellings on Spelling Shed. All children were given this login at the beginning of the year and you should find this in the front of their reading record.
It is extremely important that children are working on their times tables at home. There is a focus each week which the children will be tested on, but it is also important that children are working on each of the times tables that we have focused on this year (2s, 5s, 10s, 3s, 4s, and 8s). The children can also login to Times Tables Rock Stars to practise these. Again, you will find their logins in the front of their reading records.
Children should be reading at home each day, whether this be from their school reading book or a book that they have at home. When children read, they should record this in their reading records. If you read with your children, a small comment would be appreciated and the number of pages they have read.
Reading records should not be brought into school each day. They should stay at home and will be collected in at the end of each half-term for teachers to look through.
PE in Class 3 is on a Wednesday and Thursday. Please can the children come to school in their PE kits on those days, they do not need a change of clothes.
Children can enter school from 8:30am until 9:00am on a morning. The school day ends at 3:15pm. Children will be ready to be collected at this time from the main entrance of school. Please make sure you stay on the drive behind the wall and your children will be sent to you.
E-Schools Remote Learning
As a result of COVID-19, if children are unable to be in school due to self-isolation or bubble closures, all of their learning will be found on our classes e-Schools website. The children have their username and password to log in to access this work which will be found in the project folder section.
The class page will be updated regularly with links, activities and resources to support their learning whilst they are at home. However, this website can also be accessed at any time and additional activities may be added here even when children are attending school. For example, there may be a quiz or a video that children should watch which may be uploaded to their class page.
You can access e-Schools here: https://st-michaels-rc-primary.eschools.co.uk/
