Welcome to Year 3!
Mrs Aidley and Mrs Deacon would like to welcome you to our class page.
Below, you will find some useful information about what is going on in the Year 3 classroom this year.
Reading is such a vital part of a child's development. It helps to build a broad vocabulary, support spelling and extend a child's knowledge and understanding of the world around them. The children are expected to read for at least 30 minutes each day.
We have a wide range of texts for the children to choose from in school. As well as this, we use texts on MyOn and Accelerated Reader. At several points in the year, the children will complete a 'Star Reading' test which assesses the child's reading level and this will help to guide their book choice.
Reading is central to everything we do in school and we love sharing engaging and exciting texts with the children. We have a class story that we read daily and the children have one class guided reading session and one group guided reading session each week.
Each half term, we explore a new high quality text. In our English lessons, the children will develop an understanding of the spelling, punctuation and grammar that is expected in Year 3.
Autumn: Counting on Katherine, Seal Surfer and Winter's Child
Spring: Big Blue Whale and Escape from Pompeii
Summer: Snow Dragon and Journey
You can keep up to date with the children's Maths learning on Class Dojo.
It is very important that the children are practising their times tables weekly. They can choose how they would like to do this whether it is by learning songs, writing them down or playing on Times Table Rockstars.
PE is taught on Tuesdays in Year 3. Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their PE kit.
We keep you up-to-date and communicate via Class Dojo. Keep an eye on our class story for information on what we have been learning and important reminders. You can also keep track of your child's behaviour and see how many dojos they have been awarded.
