WELCOME TO YEAR 3

Croeso i blwyddyn 3

 

Dear Parents,

A warm welcome to Year 3! Firstly I would like to introduce myself. I am Mrs Reilly, the year 3 class teacher this year. I am very much looking forward to getting to know your children this year and meeting as many of you as possible. You will find that some of the routines are the same as when your child was in year 2, but there are some changes.

Year 3 will also supported by Miss Reynolds, Mrs Jones and Miss Morgan, but will work closely with specific children in the class.  Please continue to use the home-school books provided for any messages or questions you may have. It is really helpful if dinner money is placed in an envelope with the child’s name and class written on the front and placed in the dinner money basket in class.

Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled.

For breaktime the children can either bring their own fruit or it can be bought for 30p. We encourage the children to drink water during the day and they may bring in their own water bottle…..you may choose to purchase one of the school water bottles which are available from the office.

Some routines of our week will be as follows:

Monday

Homework to be returned to school. Spelling check up  - new spelling words will be given out

Tuesday

PE (indoor for the autumn term )- kit needed 

Recorders,

Wednesday

 

Thursday

Maths and English/theme homework will be brought home. 

Friday

Times tables check up. 

PE/Games kit- Indoors- shorts/plain t-shirt. Outdoors-tracksuit/warm top and suitable footwear e.g. trainers

The ‘mile a day’ initiative will continue this year. The children will be walking a mile every day. Please ensure your child is wearing appropriate footwear for this.

Homework will always reinforce what is being learnt in the classroom.

Reading and the enjoyment that books give is such an important part of Year 3 and during the year your child will have daily opportunities to read, individually, with a partner and as part of a small group. Please ensure that any school reading books are kept with the home-school book and returned to school every day. All the children will benefit from continued reading support and sharing of books at home.

Our class author is Roald Dahl and the children will enjoy a selection of his books throughout the year.

If you have any concerns regarding anything please do not hesitate to come and see me either before school or after.

Many thanks for your continued support,

Mrs Reilly (Class Teacher)
