Year 3 2020 - 2021
Welcome to Autumn 1
In Year 3 the teachers are Mrs Wharton and Mrs Kenyon, who share the week between them in one class, and Mrs Frommert who teaches in the other year 3 class. We have two fantastic teaching assistants, Mrs Macaulay and Mrs Mainwearing, who support learning in the classes.
We also have a class pet. He is a bearded dragon who is based in one of the year 3 rooms and he is very friendly.
All the year 3 members of staff are excited to be back in school and looking forward to sharing our topic with the children. This autumn our topic is Wonders of the World and our learning will be based around this as well as focusing on physical and mental wellbeing after such and unusual year.
In the morning, we generally teach maths and English. In the afternoon we cover other curriculum areas such as computing, science, music and topic work. Year 3 also have Spanish lessons with Alvaro and Art with Mrs Cowburn.
In year 3, we value and promote a love of reading which we hope captures the children's imaginations. We read exciting texts as part of our English work, guided reading and also at the end of the school day. We will be asking children to take a book home on a Monday and return it the following Monday. We will collect in reading diaries once a week on a Thursday. We know the week can be busy but we would ask that you try and read with your child as many nights as you can. Once they have read, we ask that you write the book, pages read and sign your name in their reading diary so we can keep track of their reading at home. We give pupils who read regularly (4 or more times per week) a raffle ticket each week and one winner is drawn out for a prize!
PE will take place on a Tuesday (indoors) and a Thursday (outdoors). Children will need to come to school dressed in their PE kit that day and will not need to bring anything else to get changed in to as they will go home in their PE kit. Please wear appropriate footwear for each session, particularly the outdoor sessions which will be on the field where possible.
We are asking pupils to revise multiplucation tables from year 2 (2, 5, and 10) and start learning the mulplication tables we work on during year 3 which are the 3, 4 and 6 times tables. Each pupil has a log in for Times Tables Rockstars which is on a sticker in the front of their reading diaries. Any time spend learning the multiplication tables at home will help aid their recall.
Star of the week
Every week the adults in each class choose two pupils who they feel have been working well and following the Charles Darwin way. These pupils are celebrated during our Friday zoom assembly with the whole school and the pupils receive a certificate. Congratulations to last week's winners:
- Poppy and Charlie (Y3 NW/CK)
- Daphne and George (Y3 MF)
