Welcome to Year 3!

I am the your class teacher, Ms McGrath, and I will be supported by Mrs Boylan, Mrs Almasri and Mrs Kathrada across the week. Mrs Mendieta is also our assistant head teacher and will be covering lessons on a Wednesday afternoon.

If you’d like to talk to any of us, please look out for us in the playground before and after school. We are always happy to speak to you about any concerns you may have.

Dear Parents, Carers and Families,

We would firstly like to say thank you for the continued support and dedication towards your children’s learning, it doesn’t go unnoticed and the children are making fantastic progress. We are ready and raring to go for the final term of the school year, which we hope, will be our most successful yet with lots of interesting learning and fun activities.

This Summer term, our History unit is Manchester to 1900. Where we will learn what it was like to live in our wonderful city in a period of History. We will also be learning more about our wonderful world and specifically certain countries in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres.

In English, we have become great storywriters and definitely have a passion for this purpose of writing. Therefore, we will continue to write different genres of stories including a disaster story and a warning story. We will also try to incorporate what we are learning in Science and produce a Non – fiction information text on a creature of our choice.

In our reading lessons, we will be reading a variety of text types and books by a variety of authors. Fluency and comprehension are very important and this is something that can be helped by 10 minutes reading at home every day. Your child will have their reading books changed every week, once they bring them into school and pop them in our home reading box. Please encourage your children to place their books in the book box in the classroom, once they have finished reading and a staff member will change it. We aim to change reading books on a Monday and Friday. Books can then be collected from the box at the end of the day to read at home.

We’ll be learning about Plants and Animals including Humans in Science as this is a great topic, which can be linked to our Northern and Southern Hemisphere unit. In PSHE, we will be teaching our Relationships and Sex Education Unit, looking at the importance of personal space and healthy relationships.

In Maths, we have done so well with number fluency so we will be moving onto tricky fractions, time and money. Time can be a tricky topic so we would appreciate if at some point at home, each week, you can have a practise with your children on telling the time.

We’ll continue with our weekly PE sessions, this will take place on a Tuesday afternoon (outdoor) and Friday morning (indoor). It would be very helpful if your child could bring their PE kit in to be changed into. This term we will be focussing on cricket and gymnastics.

Our school PE kit is: A white t-shirt and dark coloured shorts or tracksuit bottoms and black trainers or pumps. Can we ask for no cropped T-shirts or bright coloured PE kits and no jewellery, please?

Homework: Children will also continue to get a piece of homework, each week on a Friday, which will have a maths or English focus. This will need to be completed and returned the following Friday to be checked.

If you would like to talk to any of the Year 3 team, please look out for us in the playground before and after school. As always, we are happy to speak to you about any concerns you may have.

We are looking forward to the final wonderful term with your children.

Thank you all for your support.
