Welcome to Year 3! Croeso!
A warm welcome to Year 3, we are looking forward to a fantastic year and are very excited to learn new skills and work as hard as we can so we can be the best we can be!
Your teachers are Mrs Williams (Mon, Tues, Wed) and Mr Smith (Thursday and Friday)
Teaching Assistant - Mrs Powell
Things to remember:
Monday – Year 3 will have spelling patterns each week to work on at home. These will be on the Y3 class blog every Monday.
Wednesday - Indoor PE session - wear PE kit to school.
Friday – Spelling test on the weekly Year 3 patterns and Outdoor PE session. Bug Club reading books to go home for the weekend and to be brought back on a Monday.
Friday Dictation Challenge
Once children have become familiar with and have practised the weekly spelling words, both at home and at school, they will be given a dictation challenge on the Friday. This will allow them to show how they are able to apply the words to their writing and will also give opportunities to practise punctuation and grammar skills. We are really keen to emphasise to the children that they are learning spellings and punctuation, not for a ‘test’, but instead to become more confident, competent writers.
Healthy snacks to be brought in daily for break time.
Water bottles to be brought in daily and sent home for washing. It may be an idea to have 1 bottle for lunch and 1 for the classroom. Please can these be labelled clearly.
On any PE days, pupils must come to school already dressed in PE clothes. Juniors have one indoor and one outdoor PE session each week.
Pupils already have their logs in to work online at home for HWB (J2e) and Reading Eggs.
We need to encourage as much reading as possible this year. In Y3 we are aiming to send out Bug Club books for each pupil to read and share at home. We have the online reading scheme 'Reading Eggs' where pupils can develop their phonics at home and develop their reading and comprehension skills. Within Reading Eggs there is a fantastic Library section where children can choose all sorts of books appropriate for their age and ability. Please use this resource at home.
Reading at Casllwchwr, we do many forms of reading:
Guided reading as a whole class (same text for whole group - decided by the teacher with lots of talk involved teaching objectives)
Shared (paired, group and whole class)
Individual (1:1 reading with an adult)
Independent (own choice)
The Y3 Class blog will be updated regularly with homework, information and photos of our learning.
Juniors use Class Dojo to reward points in class but not as a tool to communicate with parents. We will communicate through Twitter, Texts/emails and the Class Blog similar to the outside world.
