Welcome to Year 3
This year, your teachers will be Mrs Pearson (Monday- Wednesday) and Mrs Taylor (Thursday & Friday).
We are so excited to play a part in your learning journey.
Arrival and Drop Off
Children should be dropped off at either gate at 08:50 and should be in class no later than 09:00. Any arrival after 09:00 will be marked in the register as a late.
All children will be dismissed via the school playground. Year 3 children will be dismissed at the far end of the playground near the football pitches. A class teacher will always be present if you wish to speak to us.
PE and Forest School
PE will be taught by Mr Ellison on a Monday and Wednesday. Children should come to school ready dressed in their PE kit with their school jumper or cardigan over the top or the new school PE zipped top. Children should wear their school PE shorts when the weather allows it. If the weather is cold, the children can come to school with dark coloured plain joggers over the top of their shorts ready to remove them before their PE lesson.
Forest School sessions will be on Friday afternoons; children will be split into 2 groups and will have their sessions every other week. Children should come to school dressed in their school uniform and bring their forest school clothes with them to change into. Please refer to Class Dojo for your child's week.
Reading at home plays an important part in developing the skills of a young reader and we encourage you to help in the progression of your child's reading skills by hearing them read at home daily if possible, but if not at least three times a week. Children will have the opportunity to change their reading books most mornings. A prompt arrival at school will give them plenty of time to do this before lessons start. Please encourage your child to put their reading book and reading record in the basket in class if it needs changing.
When you have listened to your child read, if you could record it in the reading record book, along with any comments on how they read, this will help us when changing reading books. Reading books should be brought into school daily in a school book bag or school back pack (other bags are not allowed in school).
Homework girds will be sent out during the first few weeks of the new term once the children have settled back into school life. This is will be sent home with the children and also posted on Class Dojo.
Your child's Dojo account has now been passed up from Year 2 to Year 3. We will communicate predominantly through Dojo. The Dojo app is available to download to your digital device allowing you to like and comment on your child's pictures/work. If you would like to connect an additional parent to Dojo, please let me know, however, we are unable to connect anybody other than parents.
Please note that Dojo messages will only be received during the hours of 8am and 4pm so please don't worry if you don't receive an immediate response.
We use Purple Mash in school to support learning in computing and across other areas of the curriculum. Your child will bring home their Purple Mash login details in their reading record and homework books. They can access Purple Mash at home by following the link bellow and using their individual login details.
