Welcome to Year 3, the first year group in KS2. Ms Bryan is class teacher and Mr Garfield is class TA. We hope that you will love joining us in Year 3 to help inspire, educate and enjoy the many subjects that will be covered during the year.
The Year 3 school day begins at 8:55am and ends at 3pm, Monday – Friday.
We arrive at school at 8.55am and leave at 3.00pm every day. We have 3 main lessons in the morning and one lesson in the afternoon, alongside two basic skills sessions everyday. Year 3 Staff will be collect the class each morning at 8:55am from Norrington Road. If parents/carers wish to discuss any matters they can use the class email which is Year3MBA@e-act.org.uk. There is a mid-morning break from 10:15am -10:30am, and a lunch break from 12:45 – 1:30pm.
During this year, we organise many trips Our curriculum map and weekly timetable can be downloaded by clicking on the link at the bottom of the page.
PE takes place every Wednesday: Could you please ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit in school during these days. PE outdoors will be subject to weather conditions during the colder months. During the Autumn term we take part in outdoor learning opportunities lessons provide confidence and skill building in a variety of invasion games. In Summer 2, we take part in football coaching lessons provided by the coaches from Aston Villa Football Club.
Your child will be provided with a reading diary and reading book for guided reading sessions in school. Parents/carers are expected to read daily with their child using Bug Club. Please can you listen to your child read every night and write a comment about what they have read. Currently we are using Active Learning and Google Classroom in order to keep a record of children’s reading at home. They can use their reading diary to write down: their weekly spellings, important dates, as well as any reading comments that they have. We ask that parents check and sign their child’s diary on a daily basis.
Weekly homework is sent out every Friday, on Google Classrooms and is due to be completed by the following Wednesday. Spellings are set every Friday for a test on the following Friday.
We have elected some of our children in Year 3 to represent us in different ways within our school. They each help to provide a voice for Year 3 and represent our class extremely well. They are:
- School Councillors –
- Unicef Ambassadors –
- Prefects –
- House Captains/Vice Captains:
- Eco-Champion –
- Safeguarding Ambassador:
- E-Safety Ambassador –
These currently are unable to take place due to Covid-19 restrictions but we will contact you when this changes.
Each half term in Year 3 we will invite you to join us for a Parent Workshop. Every workshop will focus on the learning that has happened during the current half term. There are other workshops that occur throughout the year which you will be notified about at least a week before. There will also be three reading breakfasts throughout the year for you to join us to celebrate books with your child.
