Welcome to Year 3!
The Year Three teachers are Mrs Ignatov (3I), Miss Theakston and Mrs Burton (3TB) and Miss East (3E)
The teaching assistant for Year Three is Mrs Cook.
In Year Three we will set homework every Thursday which is due back in the following Tuesday each week. We know that reading is important to support your child's imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. Therefore, reading for 15 minutes each evening will be expected as part of your child's weekly homework. We know it's important that children enjoy reading and so we are happy for this to be a school reading book, a library book, or a book from home so that your child has a wide range to choose from. Please ensure you listen to your child read, ask them questions and sign their reading record each evening. Please also let us know when your child needs to change their reading book.
