Welcome to Year 3
with Miss Edmonds
Wishing you a warm welcome to the Juniors. I hope you all had a lovely Summer break spending time with your family and friends. I am looking forward to the year ahead with you which will be filled with new and exciting learning opportunities.
Pupils are asked to bring their reading books and diary to school each day as this will enable me to provide a comment and inform you when Guided Reading sessions have taken place during the week. Please spend time with your child discussing the setting, characters and development of the plot to further their understanding of the text.
Pupils will begin to record their independent reading as the year progresses and it is important that parents/carers provide feedback based on completed reading at home.
Pupils are welcome to bring their own small snacks to be eaten during morning or afternoon breaks. 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.
Homework will be set each Friday and should be completed and returned in the folder provided the following Friday. Weekly homework will include a Maths and spelling based activity to reinforce learning that has taken place during the week.
The pupils will be tested each Friday on the spelling words and assessed each Monday on times table facts. In addition to this, pupils will receive occasional homework activities/projects throughout the year relating to the creative topics which I'm sure they will enjoy.
During the Autumn Term, P.E. sessions will take place on Thursdays and Fridays and our current units of study are Cricket and Netball. Please ensure a full P.E kit is brought into school and that items are clearly labelled. Thank you.
