Welcome to Year 3
The children have already made a great start to the year. We very much look forward to working with you and your children over the rest of the year.
We hope that the following information will be helpful:
Miss Hill (Elm Class Teacher)
Miss Hamilton (Hazel Class Teacher)
Mrs Eddy (TA)
We want to work in partnership with parents and you are always welcome to pop in after school and if we can, we will talk to you then or make a mutually convenient time to talk. Please use the Fish Book to communicate any appointments and changes to collection arrangements etc. You can also contact us directly via e mail:
Miss Hill - firstname.lastname@example.org
Miss Hamilton - email@example.com
Our reading scheme is currently being reviewed and improved for this coming academic year. You will receive further information about this soon.
Once this has been shared with you and your child receives an appropriate reading book, your child should bring their reading book into school every day in case we hold a quiet reading session or they are asked to read to an adult. Please set aside a few minutes each day to read with your child, recording any comments in the record, including whether they have finished the book.
PE lessons for Elm will be on Mondays and Wednesdays each week and for Hazel they will be on Wednesdays and Fridays, although we would suggest your child keeps their P.E. kit in school all the time as occasionally our timetable may change. External Sports coaches will be coming in to teach your child at times throughout the year. Some of these lessons may be outside so please could you send in appropriate warm clothing and trainers to enable the children to take part in these sessions.
HomeworkHomework will be given on Friday in learning logs and will be due in on Wednesdays ready to be marked for the following week.
SpellingSpellings will soon be coming home with your child and we will be testing them weekly on Tuesdays. Children who participate in the Lexia programme will continue with their learning in this way. When spellings are given out the children will stick them into their Home/School Communication Record. Once tested, the score will be recorded in their Fish Book. Common exception words will continue to be tested half termly.
- Art & DT
During Art and DT sessions the children will often engage in messy activities therefore could you please provide your child with an old named art shirt to be left in school for these occasions.
End of Day Arrangementswe would be grateful if you could complete the slip attached, to indicate who will be regularly collecting your child. If there are any changes to this, we would ask that you contact the office as normal. Thank you.
We will aim to keep you updated with information to help you support your child as the term progresses but in the interim, if you have any queries, please do ask or feel free to pop in at the end of the school day.
Thank you for your support.
