Each class continues to have an email that you can use to contact class teachers directly. These are to share concerns or questions about your child’s learning, behaviour or social and emotional well-being. We are happy to hear from you and will respond as quickly as we can.
For administrative queries such as reporting absences and appointments, informing the school of late arrival, school lunches, start times, after school club/activities, school payments etc, you should contact the office on 0208 888 8824.
Morning and end of day routines
Year 3 children start the day at 8.55am and end the day at 3.25. Please check Will’s original letter and playground map to check the location of your class assembly/lining up point.
General Class housekeeping
PE kits should be worn into school on this day.
Continue to encourage them in their times tables – consolidating 2s,5s and 10s and learning 3s, 4s, 6s, 8s. We will teach them to practise using card games which may be fun for you to play with them at home too.
We will also give the children topic-related projects – one each half term – and they will have more time to complete them and the chance to share their hard work with the rest of the class.
In Year 3 there will be daily coverage of: Maths, English, Reading, PSHE & The Daily Mile. Science, Humanities, Music (Singing), Art, R.E, Computing and P.E will taught every week.
The children have been so great at embracing their reading this week. We are going to be encouraging them to read silently during certain parts of the day and they will be able to select a book from our book corners or read a book that they have chosen to bring in from home. Anything that you can do to support them with their reading and language at home would be much appreciated.
The first parents’ evenings will take place on 21st and 23rd of September. Here you will be able to meet with your child’s class teacher to discuss how your little one is settling into the year. You will be able to come in to your child’s classroom to see their new learning environment and to ask any questions you may have.
Finally, we wanted to say that your children are all settling in brilliantly and dealing very well with the change from KS1 to KS2. We are really excited to be working with them all in what we hope will be a full and fun year of learning in Year 3.
All the best,
The Year 3 Team.
