Year 3

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your child to Year 3. Our core values comprise of Collaboration, Independence, Resilience and Creativity. We, as a school, really appreciate all the support of our parents/carers. If you have any concerns or questions please arrange an appointment with your child’s class teacher via the school home learning diary or the school office.

Learning
We will set weekly tasks for Maths and English including reading daily at home, learning spellings and practising the multiplication tables. In addition, we also set exciting home learning projects that will be linked to some of the topics. Topic learning will sometimes be set out in tasks, spread over a period of weeks, each of which contributes to the finished project.

Home Learning Diaries
Your child will be provided with a home school diary for any communication between home and school. Parents / carers are encouraged to look at it and sign it weekly, read any messages and use it as a point of contact.  However, if you have something urgent you wish to discuss with your class teacher, please contact the office to make an appointment.

Equipment
In order to help your child prepare for learning in Year 3 we will supply all necessary stationery equipment for your child.

Games, PE and swimming
Games will take place every Wednesday morning and swimming or PE will take place on Thursday afternoons. It is important that your child has the right kit. Please see the “School Essentials” page for the full list of correct kit. We would recommend that your child should bring both games and swimming kits if unsure; however a timetable will be sent home at the beginning of each term.

Behaviour
As a school we insist on high standards of behaviour and believe it is important to work with parents/carers to achieve this. Problems are more likely to be solved successfully if parents/carers and teachers work together; you will be kept informed about any concerns as they occur.

Clothing
All items of uniform and sports kit must be clearly named.  The children are aware that it is their responsibility to look after their belongings.  However, we know that sometimes things will go astray and to help remedy this, each class has a lost property box where all items left in the classroom will be placed.

Curriculum
As a school we offer an integrated creative curriculum. Every half-term we will send home a curriculum overview which will inform you of the wonder array of subjects your child will be learning.  Please also refer to the Curriculum section of the website.
