WELCOME TO MRS FARLEY'S
YEAR 3 CLASS
Welcome back and Happy New Year!
I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday and are ready for the excitement and challenges of the Spring Term!
Our creative topic takes us back in time to Victorian England so that we can discover what it was like for school children during this period in history.
In Year 3 children are asked to bring their reading books and diary to school on a daily basis. This will enable me to provide a comment related to when a child has taken part in Guided Reading or a 1 to 1 reading session.
Reading diaries are also to be used by the children to record their independent reading and for parents/carers to provide feedback or make comments on the reading they have done with their child. Children's books will be changed on a weekly basis.
Children are invited to bring their own snacks to be eaten during morning or afternoon break times. Snacks should be a healthy food choice such as fruit or a cereal bar. Chocolate bars and crisps are not considered to be healthy snacks.
English and Maths homework will be set each Friday and should be completed and returned the following Friday. Any homework set will reinforce learning related to basic maths skills and spelling patterns. The children will also have a spelling test and a times tables or basic skills test every Friday. In addition to this, the children will receive various additional homework activities throughout the year related to the creative topics.
P.E. sessions will take place each Monday and Wednesday, although this may be subject to changes throughout the school year. Please ensure a full P.E. kit is brought to school and that items are clearly labelled. It would be useful to have a tracksuit or suitable outdoor wear, stored in class, for P.E sessions that take place outside during the winter months.
