Year Three


Teacher: Mr O Neighbour
Teaching Assistants: Mrs R King, Mrs B Hall, Mrs S Timson

When your child starts in a new year group, there are often lots of questions that you have. We hope that this information will help you and your child to adjust to any changes.  Staff are always available at the beginning and end of the school day if you have any questions or queries.

The children come straight into class after the gate opens at 8.45.

Reading
In addition to the set homework, it is still important that your child reads at home on a regular basis. You can support your child by hearing them read aloud and by asking them questions about the text to develop their comprehension skills. Children need to ensure that their reading book and reading record is in school every day.
 
Library
In Year 3, children may borrow a book from the school library. They will have the opportunity to change books regularly.

Physical Education
PE kits will need to be in school on Monday morning and taken home on Friday, the scheduled days for Year 3 PE will be Wednesday and Friday. Swimming will take place on a Tuesday afternoon during the summer term and weather permitting, during September.
 

Home Learning

Home learning activities will be recorded on the VLE pages of the school website; your child has their own log-in which is through the school website.  Home learning tasks are normally set on a Wednesday and need to be completed by the following Monday.  Children may join the Home learning club which is after school on a Thursday and enables children to have access to any IT facilities they may need to complete their learning tasks.  Please ask in the school office if your child would like to join.


 
Water bottles/Snacks
Throughout the school, children are asked to bring in a named bottle of water each day, which they can drink from in the classroom. These should be sports style bottles rather than screw top bottles. As snacks are not provided in Key Stage Two, children have the opportunity to bring in their own fruit or vegetables for morning break.
 
Pencil Cases
Children are provided with a pencil case containing all the items they will need, so there is no need for children to bring in stationery items from home.
 
Named Clothing
Please can you ensure that all your child’s uniform is named. Obviously most of the uniform looks very similar, so it is hard to return items if there are no visible names!
