Meet The Teachers
Happy New Year! We hope that you had a lovely Christmas break and are ready for the Spring Term.
This term, Year 3 will be taught by Mrs Allen and Mrs Kayley.
Mrs Kayley taught in Year 3 for three years before leaving to have her little girl in March.
We have lots of fun lessons planned and can’t wait to get going.
Mrs Allen and Mrs Kayley
We have been so impressed with the improvements in reading during the Autumn term. Now that the children are getting more fluent, we want to ensure that they are developing a deeper understanding of the text they are reading.
School books will now be changed once a week. By keeping school reading books for longer, children will have more time to be able to read their text and then discuss it in detail.
Please find attached a copy of our ‘Questions for Reading’ bookmark that you might like to use with your children when discussing the book that they have read.
Please make sure reading books and reading records are in school on your child’s given day.
Homework this term will consist of:
- Spelling practice
- Timestable Rockstars
- Weekly topic homework ‘All About Me’
Homework will be given out weekly on a Friday afternoon.
Homework – To be handed in on Wednesday
Spellings – To be tested on Friday
Here is a selection of homework that has been completed by the children. We are really enjoying learning more about each other and looking back at old photos.
This term, Year 3 will be going swimming every other Wednesday. Swimming lessons will start on the 8th January and take place at the St Peter’s centre.
Children will need swimming costumes / trunks and a towel. If your child needs goggles, then they will need a permission slip which can be obtained from the school office.
If your child has long hair, they will need to wear a swimming cap.
Please note, talc and shower gel are not permitted.
This Term’s Topic Is
Our topic for the Spring term is Prehistoric Britain. The children will be learning about the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. They will consider how people lived, the tools they used and the houses they lived in. This topic will start with a visit from a real-life caveman!
