Teacher: Miss Blakeley
Welcome to Year 3
I am looking forward to teaching your child throughout this school year. The transition to Key Stage Two from Key Stage One will give your child multiple opportunities to build upon essential skills and develop their independence. I hope that our continued communication will help your child learn, grow and enjoy their year to the fullest.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to speak to me. I look forward to an exciting year!
Year 3 will cover several themes throughout the year:
Autumn 1 – Earth Explorers
Autumn 2 – Volcanoes
Spring 1 – Ancient Greece
Spring 2 – Ancient Greece
Summer 1 – From Stone to Steel
Summer 2 – From Stone to Steel
These themes will include all foundation subjects to ensure pupils receive a broad and balanced curriculum.
Year 3 have their P.E. days on a Thursday and a Friday. Please ensure that their P.E. kit is in school on these days
Spellings and timetables
New spellings will be sent home every Monday and will be tested the following Monday. The children will also receive spelling activities to complete in their spelling journals. They are expected to learn spelling patterns and rules in order to encourage independence in their writing. In Year 3, your child will be learning the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. It would be very beneficial if they could be tested on these at home to improve their fluency.
This year, the children have received brand new reading records. Please help to foster a love of reading by encouraging your child to read at home. These records need to be signed at least three times a week and must be brought in every day. The loss of a reading record comes at the cost of £2.
