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.
In Year 3 we will usually set homework every Thursday. The children will be expected to complete an English task (spellings and sentences) and a Maths activity to consolidate the work we have covered. Due to Covid 19, the children are not expected to hand their homework in, however we will assess their understanding of the homework through a Spelling and Maths test.
In addition to this, reading is important to support your child's imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. Therefore, reading for at least 15 minutes each evening for up to 5 evenings per week will be expected as part of your child's weekly homework. Children can choose a school reading book, a library book, or 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
