Welcome to Year 3!
Both Mrs Faulkner and myself are very excited about the year ahead. Mrs Faulkner works on a Monday and Tuesday and I work all other times of the week. We feel very fortunate to be able to share this lovely class and you will often find that we are in class together.
Our Topic this term is 'Bright Sparks'.
We are also launching our Extreme Reading challenge to promote our love of reading! We would love you to think of the most extreme place you could read your book! Last year, Mrs Spooner was reading in a four poster bed. Where could you read your book? Could you make a den? Could you read in a hammock in your garden? What about reading on a trampoline? Come on, lets see how 'extreme' you are! We will add your photographs to our display in the classroom.
In addition to extreme reading please read every night! We know that practice makes progress. Also bring your reading book and reading record to school every day so that we can hear you too!
We hope you like the new homework grid and are excited to start your home learning. Please make sure that you choose 2 spelling activities a week ready for your spelling test on a Friday morning. Also choose one mathematics activity to do each week too ( you can do more!). In addition to this, please complete 3 topic activities each term. All your homework activities can be completed in your homework book. Don't forget to log on to My Maths too.
Every Friday we will be doing our cracking times tables so get practising!
P.E will be on Monday afternoon (outdoor) and a Friday afternoon (indoor). Make sure your P.E kits are in school ALL week. Also, make sure your P.E clothes are clearly named.
Please make sure you bring a healthy snack for mid morning and a drink to keep you hydrated and able to do your best work.
We hope this information is helpful and please don't hesitate to ask us any questions!
Thank you for your continuing support and we look forward to working in partnership with you.
