WELCOME TO MRS FAIRHURST'S
YEAR 3 CLASS
We are going to have a great year!
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 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 Wednesday and Thursday, 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.
We will begin swimming lessons on Wednesday 24th April. Children will need to ensure they have a swimming costume, swimming hat, towel and goggles in school every Wednesday morning.
