Year 3 Information

Welcome to Year 3 2017-2018 

Class teachers – Mrs Williams (Wednesday, Thursday and Friday) and Mrs Poiner (Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday) 

Assistants – Miss Gayle and Mrs Leahy 

Our topic this term is ‘The Celts’. We will be going on a class trip to Castell Henllys on October 18th where we will live as a Celt for the day and dress up. Consent forms to be given out closer to the date. 

P.E.  – Tuesday indoor and Friday outdoor.   Please can pupils bring kit in a bag so they can change back into their uniform after the session as  it is part of the curriculum that  they need to be aware of personal hygiene. 

Homework : Spelling / Literacy / Numeracy  – Homework books to be given out on a Thursday and handed back in on a Tuesday.  Remember that there is  homework club on a Thursday should your child wish to attend. 

Bug club books to be returned once they are read at home and they will be changed by the pupils through the week and we encourage parents and pupils to record in the red home link books.   There are also book reviews in the back and times table pages where you and child can work on times table targets. Pupils will develop their reading skills and be listened to in class through individual, shared and guided reading sessions. 

Year 3 will visit the library and choose a free choice book to read at home, this can also be recorded in the red home link book.  

All pupils will have HWB log ins that we will send home and everyone will have log ins for active learn to access the Bug club books online. Again we encourage pupils and parents to use Bug Club online at home to develop reading and comprehension skills. We can monitor pupils’ progress through the questions asked online then assign books of appropriate level to each child.  

The Class blog will be updated regularly with homework, information and photos of our learning.  

Juniors use Class Dojo to reward points in class but not as a tool to communicate with parents. We will communicate through Twitter, Texts and the Class Blog. If you have any questions please see us before or after school when convenient.   

Headphones  – pupils are welcome to bring into school inexpensive headphones should they wish to do so as it will allow them to use the iPads with sound.  This is not compulsory.   

Year 3 and 4 will be getting together at Christmas time for a class production.  

We need help during the year to carry out activities so if you or a family member have a skill or some time that could be spared, please let us know.
