Welcome to Year 3!

   Welcome to Year 3

"You're off to Great Places! Today is your day! Your mountain is waiting, So... get on your way!" ― Dr. Seuss

Staff -   Class teacher - Mrs Chedgzoy      Teaching Assistants - Mrs Cragg, Mrs Wood, 

Reading - Children should be reading a little every night and answering questions about the text to check their understanding. The children may change their reading book on a Monday. Even if they have not finished their book please return the reading record so we can see that your child has been reading at home and enter them into our class reading challenge.

Water Bottles - It is important that your child has some water to drink throughout the day. Please ensure your child has their name on their water bottle in school. This should be brought home each night to be washed and returned containing fresh water each day.

Uniform - PLEASE ensure ALL uniform is clearly labelled with your child’s name. 

P.E. – P.E. will take place every Thursday. The children are to come to school in their P.E. kit. The kit should be a plain dark tracksuit (preferably black) white Summerhill T-shirt  and trainers. On warmer days, children may wear green/black shorts.

Homework – This will be put on Google Classroom. The children will get 10  spellings each week  ready for a test on a Wednesday and should be practising their spellings every night.

Times Tables - It is important that the children know their 2,3,5,8,10 x  times tables by the end of Year 3. I cannot stress how important the tables are in every area of maths and they need to be able to recall this information with accuracy and speed. The children need to practise these so they can recite them quickly in any order and also know the corresponding division facts. Top Marks HIt the Button is a great resource for this. There will be a times table test on a Friday.

Medication – Any medication required to be administered during the school day can only be done if:

 If your child is asthmatic, we need to have a reliever inhaler at school.  We are not permitted to give children over the counter medicines e.g. Calpol. All medication must be delivered directly to the school office for administration

 Over the counter medications cannot and will not be administered.

Attendance and Punctuality - Please ensure your child attends school and please only keep them off if absolutely necessary.   The children must be in the classroom ready to learn not later than 8.55am. The doors will be open from 8.45am.  Holidays during school time will not be authorised and parents will be referred for a penalty notice should they take their child out of school. 

Monies into school - all school based activities can be paid using SIMSpay - this is our preferred method. If you cannot do this then money must be sent in a sealed envelope clearly named and labelled. Please keep up to date with what’s going on in our school - use our website and twitter account!
