Year 3

Hello and welcome to Year 3! 

 

We have got off to a great start and we are so excited to be part of your child's learning journey. 

 

During the coming year, your children will be supported by a dedicated team of professionals, who will work closely to ensure that their individual needs are met. Here are the Year 3 Team.

                                         

Class Teacher: Miss Jefferson - Teaching Assistants: Mrs Warrilow and Mrs Leach -  PPA Cover: Miss Harris                                      Sports Coach: Mr Wheeler - Spanish: Miss Wheeler                        

 

English: The children learn in mixed ability groups within the class. Our writing lessons are delivered through planned sequences based around books that will stimulate imagination and engage the children. Our first book this term is ‘The Beasties’ by Jenny Nimmo, I hope that you will hear a lot about this from your child as we have some great activities planned. We will also have daily guided reading lessons and/or spelling sessions. During these, the children will encounter a variety of texts from fiction and non-fiction genres. 

As a school we be following the ‘The Write Stuff’ spelling programme.

 

Maths: We follow Busy Ant for Mathematics using a mastery approach. The new standards are higher and we have high expectations of the children. For example, the children should know all their times tables by the end of Year 4 (up to and including 12 X 12). Any support you can give your child in practising these at home will be beneficial and much appreciated. In addition, each child has a log in for Mathletics, TTRockstars and Tackling Tables. 

 

Homework: Children are expected to read, discuss and answer questions about their reading book every evening - even if it is just a few minutes. Please encourage them to use the online Reading Buddy platform as there are terrific books and activities on there. Homework for this year, will be set on the Home Learning page on the website under the pencil icon. The page be updated on a Thursday evening to be completed by the following Tuesday. Any work completed can be emailed into class using the Year 3 email address. Please encourage your child to check Year 3 Home Learning page regularly.

 

If your child needs to isolate at home, then daily class lessons will also be available here.

 

PE: It is important that the children come to school in their PE kit on our PE days. These are Monday and Friday. The kit comprises of a house-coloured polo/t- shirt, black shorts, black tracksuit/jogging bottoms, trainers, sweatshirt and shin pads. Please ensure that the children dress warmly as, initially, all our sessions will be outside. The children will be taught by Mr Wheeler for one weekly session. Earrings must be removed for PE.

 

Attendance/Punctuality: Attendance is closely monitored by our Education Welfare Officer (EWO). It is vital that all the pupils attend school every day if possible. Holidays in term time are not permitted and will be recorded as an unauthorised absence. 

 

Snacks/Juice: Toast is available to book through school, however children may bring their own healthy snack for morning break, such as a piece of fruit. We encourage drinks to be brought in from home, but we politely ask for no fizzy drinks please. Reminder – we are a nut free school.

 

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us via the class email:

 

class3@cookleyprimary.worcs.sch.uk

 

The class email is monitored at intervals during the week, so if your concerns are urgent, please make contact via the Gateway for a speedier response. 

 

We look forward to working with you.
