3CS and 3RT
Welcome to Year 3
Welcome to 3CS and 3RT’s blog. Here you will be able to read about and see all the exciting things that the classes have been up to over the year. We hope you enjoy looking through all the children’s hard work and can see how much fun they are having.
Meet the Teachers
Our Year 3 team, Mrs Skinner (teacher), Miss Thomas (Teacher), Mrs Axworthy and Mrs Craney (Teaching Assistants). Any of our year 3 team will be happy to talk to you about your child’s need and interests.
Year 3 have PE with our coach Brian. PE is a compulsory subject and children are expected to have the correct kit. Year 3 PE day is on a Monday morning, please ensure that your child’s name is on ALL items of clothing. These lessons help to develop physical skills, team work and co-operation.
Homework and Spellings
Homework is given out every Friday and is to be returned completed by the following Wednesday. Homework will include activities to secure learning from that week and will be based around English and Math’s. Spellings are given out on a Monday and are tested on the Friday of that week.
Reading is a fundamental aspect of their learning. Please make sure that your child brings their book bag to school every day along with their home reader and reading record. Please read with your child at least 3 times a week and make sure that you comment and sign their reading record. This allows teachers to see how much your child is reading and can judge better when to move up to the next level home reader.
If your child is being picked up by another person that is not on our contact list you will need to ring and tell the school so that we are aware of who is picking up your child.
Our Work and Trips
This is our Year 3 Curriculum long term plan of what we will be looking at in all of our subjects over the year.
This week we went on a trip to the Metropolitan Cathedral in Liverpool. We had lots of fun exploring and learning about the history of the building.
On World Book Day our families came in to see what we had been doing in class and helped us to write postcards to our favourite authors.
In Science we have been exploring shadows.
In ICT we made animations on New Zealand Folklore and the stories of Maui.
