Welcome to Year 3
The Year Three teachers are Mrs Ignatov (3I), Miss Grey (3G) and Miss East (3E)
The teaching assistant for Year Three is Mrs Cook.
Reading is important to support your child's understanding, imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. Therefore, reading for at least 15 minutes each day, 5 times per week, will be expected as part of your child's remote learning. Children are allocated books each week on BUG CLUB, in addition to this they are encouraged to read a book from home. In Year 3, it is important to do a mixture of independent reading and reading with an adult and for your child to independently record their opinions about the book in their Reading Record.
Thank you for your continued support.
The Year 3 Team

RE: Topic: Energy (Pentecost)
The children will explore why the Church celebrates Pentecost. They will also read scripture and think about why the Holy Spirit is compared to strong wind and tongues of fire.
