Year 3 – Chestnut
Welcome to Year Three - Chestnut Class
Teacher – Miss Crewe
Teaching assistants – Mrs Funderburg (AM) and Mrs Holliday
Welcome to Year 3 and Key stage 2!
There is a real focus of growing independence as the children enter Key Stage 2 and more emphasis will be on them becoming active learners. All of our lessons have a strong focus on language to help build the children’s vocabulary and in particular, we are trying to make them excellent communicators so they can speak out and share their ideas. Over the next year, your child will be challenged and supported, so that, they continue to achieve with growing confidence
I am very excited to be teaching your child this year! I can’t wait to share all the exciting things we do in class, so please keep checking the website for updates.
Please find some important information below.
Mr Hosier will be taking the children for PE lessons on a Monday and Wednesday. Please make sure your child’s PE bag comes into school on Monday and children will bring them home Friday for them to be washed.
Please can you make sure that all your child’s belongings are named so we can return them if they become misplaced
It is essential that your child continues to read at home every day and that this is recorded in their reading records. Please take opportunities to discuss what they have read as this will support their comprehension and inference skills and deepen their understanding of language. Engaging with your child about their books will nurture a love of reading which will have many positive effects on their language and social skills.
Spellings will be given out each Friday and the children can test at the end of the next week on spelling frame. Children will have access to Spelling Frame to help make their learning more interactive and fun as they practise their words but then should also spend times writing these words to help with handwriting and spelling pattern recognition.
If your child is having a school dinner, please order this online via Parent Pay. This needs to be done by 8am.
Homework will be sent out on a Friday to be completed by the following Wednesday. Please support your child by ensuring that they have a quiet area to complete their work and it is done at a time when they are feeling fresh - Friday afternoon would be ideal. If there is a problem, please do not hesitate to contact me for guidance.
Please see the attached Curriculum Web for this class for further details about what the children will be learning.
I look forward to sharing your child’s successes with you this year, of which I’m sure there’ll be many!
