 Welcome to Year 3 HM

Hello and welcome to 3HM! Our class teacher is Mrs Mikolajczyk and our teaching assistant is Mrs Wombell. On a Friday the class teacher will be Mrs Summers.

 

 

We have high expectations of the children and of ourselves. In our class we follow the STARS values:

Safety

Trust

Achievement

Respect

Sharing

We also practise the good listening skills of: Keeping still; looking at the person who is speaking; listening to all the words and staying quiet.

 

PE and Kit Information

Our PE day is Thursday

It is really important that the children have a suitable PE kit in school on our PE day, so that they can participate fully in the activities.

 

The PE kit is as follows:

Navy shorts, white polo shirt, white socks, navy joggers, navy jumper and trainers (pumps are better for indoor use). Please note: sun hats will be needed during the summer.

All items of the PE kit should be clearly labelled and kept in a PE bag with the child’s name on the outside.

In addition to this, please can all pupils bring a coat at all times of the year.

 

Forest School

Our Forest School day is Wednesday and will be run by Mrs Crockett. Please can your child come to school wearing forest school clothes: long sleeved top, long trousers and waterproofs. Wellies or walking boots should be brought in a separate bag to change into.

 

Reading

Reading is crucial to everything that children do. We nurture a love of reading and encourage the children to read every day in class and to read for pleasure. We teach reading through small group Guided Reading lessons which take place every day. Children should be reading at home as often as possible and at least 5 times a week. Talk with your child about the books they are reading. Just 5 minutes reading a day builds up to many hours over time. This will make the difference to the progress your child makes in reading and their enjoyment of reading.

Please sign your child’s Home School Diary whenever he/she reads at home. Each week we monitor how many times each child has read at home and we also award a Reader of the week.

 

Writing

Skills are practised in Topic lessons; Grammar lessons and in English lessons. We are teaching the children to be ‘writers’ - to think, write and edit their work as writers do.

 

Maths

You can help your child by practising their multiplication tables with them regularly. Again, this should only be in short bursts of time – in the car, walking to school or with an App. Knowing their tables is essential to being a successful mathematician!

 

Homework and reading

Children will be learning spelling rules and patterns in school and will be regularly tested on key words and curriculum spellings. In addition, homework will be sent home weekly to complete.

The children will also need to learn the 3, 4 and 8 times tables by heart in addition to the 2, 5 and 10 from Year 2 to use in their Maths work this year. They will also be expected to read every evening to an adult.

Reading remains a priority and we expect the children to read at least 5 times a week with an adult. It is really important that with all homework the children are encouraged to complete it independently but then supported when necessary.

 

Topic Information for the Term

You will find links to the topic web for each term in 'The Curriculum' subsection in 'About Us'. The topic web will allow you to see what your child is covering across the curriculum during this academic year.

 

Unlocking Learning

All children have logins to specific sites that will aid in their learning. Please support your child in using these websites. In our class we value everyone’s opinions and expect a high level of behaviour and respect towards staff and peers. We look forward to being able to show you all that we learn about this year.
