Y3 Fine Class

Y3 Fine

Welcome to Fine Class!

Miss Davison and Mrs Armour will be teaching Year 3 pupils this year with Mrs Webb assisting all day in the classroom. The children are now juniors and so they will be encouraged to show more independence both in their learning and when organising their possessions. 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 

Please refer to the curriculum learning journey for details of the topics covered this year. This year we have a new exciting creative curriculum and will be exploring all the foundation subjects through exciting cross-curricular themes such as; Rock n roll, Tremors, Earthquakes and Tsunamis, Jungle Boogie, The Jewel of the Nile and Water, Water Everywhere. Expect children to be coming home talking about all the exciting learning they have done in class.

Homework 

It is really important that pupils have a daily reading session at home for a minimum of 20 minutes and this needs to be recorded in their reading records with a parental signature. Please make time to hear your child read aloud whenever possible and discuss their reading with them. Practice questions such as “Can you predict what might happen next in the story?”, “What would you do in that situation?” and the ability to find key facts and summarise information will help them to develop skills that will be essential in later life.

In addition to the daily reading, 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. The school subscribes to the maths computer program Mathletics. Children can log in at any time to practise their maths skills and sometimes it will form part of their set homework.

PE 

P.E. and games will be on Mondays and Thursdays but kits should be in school every day. Please make sure all uniform including P.E. kit is labelled so mislaid kit can be easily identified. For safety, all watches and earrings must be removed before games. If your child is unable to do this please, as a parent or carer, check they are removed before school. It is important that children wanting to get their ears pierced should wait until an appropriate time in the summer holidays to do this.

Many pupils find buttoning shirts correctly and tying ties difficult – if you can help your child practise these skills it would be really helpful.

Class Equipment

As children are still quite young, Audley will continue to provide all class equipment for children in Year 3 therefore no pencil cases should be brought into school.

Communication

Please put any short messages in the reading record which will be picked up by the adults in the class. Staff will lead the children out at the end of the day but if you need to discuss any concerns it is probably best to contact the office so an appointment can be made.

Thank you

Mrs Armour, Miss Davison, Mrs Webb and  Mrs Ivey

Home Learning Tasks and school closure

It is important that whilst children are off school they maintain a routine of learning as far as a possible, in order to ensure a positive mental well-being. The school has created some creative home learning packs which we would like all parents to have a go at doing with your child(ren) at home.  These will be updated on a weekly basis.
