In Year 3, we have three classes. Miss A Tomley (3AT), Miss C Gray (3CG) and Mrs H Sadler & Mrs N Harding (3SH) are the class teachers.
Mrs Morris, Mrs Astbury, Miss Adcock and Mrs Carman are our teaching assistants.
If you wish to contact the teachers, please use the following email addresses:
Year Three classrooms are located along the junior playground.
Children need reading books and reading records in school every day. Every child has their own locker in their cloakroom and tray in their class. Reading books and reading record, homework, letters and any other stationery should be stored in classroom trays. Children need to have a P.E kit and appropriate outdoor education clothes, which should be kept in lockers in the cloakroom. Ideally, a pair of Wellington boots should also be brought into school on outdoor education days.
What we do and when:
Everyday, the children take part in fun activities to promote understanding and learning. We undertake daily SPaG, English, reading and maths lessons, underpinning our learning with ICT through the use of iPads and the computer suite. Once every three weeks, on a Wednesday morning, we work with Mrs Hammond and Mr Morris for outdoor learning and we promote physical activity through P.E lessons and making other lessons active!
We adopt a thematic approach to our learning and endeavour to link as many lessons as possible to our topic.
Children are expected to read daily and we encourage comments (yours and theirs) to be made in reading records. Reading really is integral to learning so please do read at home. Any books can be read, not just age appropriate chapter books or levelled books but magazines, non-fiction books or even recipes! Please record any book read in reading records. Ultimately, we are encouraging children to have a love of reading.
Spellings are set for the half term and these are sent home at the beginning of each half term. We do not formally test spellings, however, each day we practise some of the spellings and practise spelling these together, in pairs or groups.
At the beginning of each term, as we start a new topic, a homework suggestions grid is sent home. This provides suggested activities to run alongside the core subjects and topic being studied in school. As children complete activities, they are encouraged to bring them in to school and ‘show and tell’ with their class. Children are rewarded with dojos for effort and presentation. There isn’t a deadline for the homework suggestions, and these are not compulsory.
