Welcome to Year 3’s class page…
A very warm welcome from myself, Mrs. Burdett. I am so excited for this year, as it is a fresh start to a brand new academic year that everyone has been waiting for! I will ensure that everyone in Year 3 will have the most amazing time learning inside and outside the classroom whilst staying as safe as possible. As Head of Art, our classroom will always be creative regardless of the topics that are being taught. Our children will always have the opportunity to express themselves and Art and Design is a fantastic starting place.
I teach Year 3 and with the support of Mrs. Heaney and Mrs. Noble who are both amazing and wonderful, all at the same time! On Wednesday mornings, Miss Mallinson will be teaching Music and Mrs. Barnett will be teaching RE.
On this page you will find an up-to-date portfolio of what our incredible children have been up to each half term. I will regularly update it with lots of fabulous photos of our children in action… So keep checking the page for exciting updates!…
This term’s Stars!
Now that we are allowed to have assemblies together again, we have restarted our Star Award Assembly on Friday morning. This is a very special assembly where Mrs. Burdett tells us how amazing one of our friends has been this week – our parents are even allowed to come! Well done to all of our recent Star Award winners.
Important things to know about…
Times Tables – Every week, we are given Times Tables to learn and we are tested on these every Friday. As we know how important they are, we must try to practice them every day at home so we can do our best! But don’t worry, we will be practicing lots an lots in class too!
Spellings – We are given spellings to learn every Friday and then we are tested on these on the following Friday. This is an amazing opportunity to learn new words and words that we all find tricky to spell sometimes. These should also be practiced everyday at home too!
Reading at Home – We should read at home (independently or with an adult) every day and it should be logged in our Reading Diary. Reading Diaries will be checked regularly. Also, re-reading the same books is excellent practice. When we read something for the second and third time, we understand more and more each time we read. When reading at school, children are asked questions about the part that they’ve read, to check their understanding. This should be done at home too, even if you send 5 minutes talking about the front cover of the book! Reading is EXTREMELY important because it helps our children to unlock more of the curriculum.
Maths and English Homework – I set homework every Friday on Seesaw and it is to be submitted on or before the following Friday. Homework will be based on the spellings and times tables that are given that day. Repetition is excellent practice for our children and will help them to remember their spellings and time tables.
