Y3 Fine Class
Welcome to Fine Class!
Miss Hughes will be teaching Year 3 pupils this year with Mr Mould assisting each morning in the classroom. The children have now joined Key Stage Two and there is a lot of learning to be done! As a Rights Respecting School, we respect that children have the right to a high quality, inspiring education that builds upon knowledge, talents and abilities. As such, Year 3 will be exploring each of our topics through a wide range of activities that cater to different learning styles; from dress-up days to experiments; outdoor learning to arts and crafts; the use of technology and much more. It is going to be a very exciting year! (Information on trips and workshops will be available nearer the time.)
Curriculum Where ever possible, learning will be linked to the History topic of each term in order for the children to have a fully immersive experience of each period in time. Our History Foci are: Stone Age – Autumn Term Bronze & Iron Age – Spring Term Ancient Egypt – Summer Term
Take a look at our curriculum jigsaw map to see more about what we are learning!
Homework To extend what the children have learnt in school, English and Maths homework will be set each week on a Friday and is due in on the following Wednesday. All pupils are expected to complete their homework on time and to the best of their ability. Spellings (also set on a Friday) must be learnt regularly throughout the week in preparation for a spelling test on the following Friday.
Pupils must have a daily reading session at home for a minimum of 20 minutes and this needs to be recorded in their purple reading records with a parental signature. Please make time to hear your child read aloud whenever possible and discuss their reading with them. Can they look up unknown words? Predict what might happen next in the story? Summarise the chapter? Think what they would do if they were the character? Etc.
PE Please could all items of School uniform and PE kit be clearly labelled to help children identify their belongings and keep the frustration of items going missing to a minimum. Please ensure children have their PE kit in school every day. All earrings and watches must be removed for safety for all PE activities. The children must be able to do this themselves or they should be taken out by a parent or carer at home. It is, therefore, important that children wanting to get their ears pierced wait until an appropriate time in the summer holidays to do this.
All PE activities, including BB Sports, will commence week beginning 11th September.
Communication If you have any concerns, notes, or messages about pickups or drop offs please write these in your child’s reading record which will be passed on to Miss Hughes. This allows all adults in the class to be fully involved in the children’s learning as soon as they enter the classroom. If you would like to meet with Miss Hughes then please do not hesitate to make an appointment at the office.
