Making Contact

1
We like to welcome the children in calmly each morning so we would prefer if you could wait until after school if you need to talk to us.
1
Please pass on any messages to the Teaching Assistants on the doors in the morning and they will pass it on to the relevant teacher. We will contact you or catch up with you at the end of the day.
1
If you want to talk to the teacher we are very happy for you to catch us at the end of the day. But please can you wait until we have safely seen the rest of the class out.

Growth Mindset

Our whole school learning power for the autumn term is Engagement and our character that represents that learning behaviour is the wide-eyed owl, called Barney.

Rights and Responsibilities

All children in year 3 are asked to follow the school rules as set out in the Rights and Responsibilities charter agreed by the school council. We have a ‘Good to be Green’ chart in every classroom and throughout the term you will be informed of positive behaviours that have resulted in your child being awarded silver or gold. Equally should your child fall significantly below the behaviour standards we expect you will be informed.

Homework

1
English: In addition to daily reading the children will have a list of words for Year 3 and 4 from the national curriculum. Please encourage your child to learn these words.
1
Each week your child will also have 10 words to learn linked to the spelling objectives they are being taught in class.
1
Maths: Homework will include activities set via the My Maths system each term as well as times tables and key maths facts, such as shape names, to learn.
1
Topic: Each term the children will be asked to complete one creative homework activity which may include model making, art, a science or computer based investigation. This term we are asking the children to make a model of a World War II Anderson Shelter.

Please Remember…

General

We are delighted with how smart our year 3 children are at the start of the school year. Please ensure your child knows how to tie both their school tie and shoe laces. We will be having PE lessons on a weekly basis and it is important that all the children have the appropriate kit in school at all times.

Many thanks for your ongoing support.

Kind regards,

The Year 3 team.
