Welcome to Year 3!
Hi I am Mr Bain your child’s teacher, Mrs Murtagh-Davies will also be supporting your children this year.
I am looking forward to the year ahead and working with your child.
I hope the information below is useful.
PE will be taking place on a Friday morning. Children will need a full PE kit of white T-shirts, blue shorts and plimsolls. They can come to school in their PE kits if you find this easier with uniform to change into.
As part of our home school agreement, we expect children to complete their homework and return it to school on time. This is usually a revision activity that the children have already covered. If your child struggles, please work with them and encourage them to have a go. If they need further help, homework club is available for year 3 on a Tuesday after school.
Monday – English (Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar) – Please return by Wednesday.
Spellings- the children have five spellings per day to learn at home. They are tested the following morning. A full list of the week’s spellings will be sent home on a Friday with their homework.
Wednesday – Maths – Please return by Friday.
Reading- This should be an ongoing task each night. The children read daily in school and we encourage this to be the case at home too. Listening to your child read as often as possible will really help their fluency and asking your child questions about what they have read will aid their comprehension. We will be sending reading records home and we would be grateful if you could write a weekly comment about how your child has read. If your child does not have a book at home, please ask them to speak to me.
If your child has asthma or any allergies or medical conditions that I need to be aware of please let me know as soon as possible.
At the end of the day, your child can be collected form the junior entrance at the rear of the school.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call into class after school or if this isn’t convenient please just ask and we can arrange a time that is.
Thank you for your support,
Latest from Year 3
