Mrs Freeman

 

 

 

Welcome to Year 3, the first year group in KS2. Mrs Freeman is our class teacher. 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 although children are welcome from 8.40am and ends at 3.15pm, Monday – Friday.

We arrive at school at 8.55am and leave at 3.15pm 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 8:40am 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 10:30am -10:45am, and a lunch break from 12:30 – 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

PE takes place every Monday and Tuesday: 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 work with the Aston Villa provide confidence and skill building in a variety of invasion games as well as developing our fundamentals of physical literacy. In dance, we will be using machinery to inspire our routines. During the Spring term we learn about gymnastics, dance, hockey and handball. In Summer 2, we take part in cricket, OAA, tennis and tri-golf.

 

Reading

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.

 

Pupil Representatives

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
  • Opal Play Leaders

 

 

Parent Workshops

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.
