The teaching assistant for Year Three is Mrs Cook.
We can be contacted on our school email:
Homework will be set every Thursday and must be returned the following Tuesday. This will usually consist of a Maths and English task (spelling and sentences).
Reading for at least 15 minutes each day, 5 times per week, will also be expected as part of your child's homework. It is important to support your child with daily reading as this has a huge impact on their understanding, imagination, creativity and learning across all subjects. 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.
