Welcome to Year 3!
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. My Maths online homework set on Mondays with 7 days to complete.
Wednesday - Indoor PE session - wear PE kit to school.
Friday – Spelling test on the weekly Year 3 patterns and Outdoor Games session - wear PE kit to school. Bug Club reading books to go home for the weekend and to be brought back on a Monday.
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.
With the current situation, pupils can wear suitable clothing for PE days with a school jumper. 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. At the start of Y3 we will send home usernames and passwords for the 'My Maths' online programme we use in Key Stage 2. Pupils will be set weekly maths tasks on this programme to complete at home.
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.
Topics for 2021-2022
