Welcome to Year 3 Kestrels
There are 27 mini kestrels in our class. Mr Jones is the class teacher. Keep an eye on the web site for all of the exciting things we have in store!
Now that your child is in the first year of lower key stage 2, it is essential that they begin to build their independence, therefore we would ask that you drop off and collect your child from the main playground rather than accompanying them into the building. I will be at the class door sending them out one by one at the end of the day to stop crowding and learning new faces!
If you ever need to talk to me please ask to make a meeting. Due to Covid regulations we would like the drop of to be as smooth and efficient as possible to stop the year group bubbles crossing over.
Year 3 is an exciting one and have lots of fantastic experiences and topics planned throughout the year including:
Rocks, Relics and Rumbles
Empires and Eras
Through the Ages
To help your child have a deeper understanding and to help make their learning more purposeful and enjoyable we would be grateful if you could assist them with any homework. This year, homework will be sent home as a termly pack. Within this pack there will be Maths, Literacy, Grammar and topic activities for the children to complete. We encourage you to complete an activity on a weekly basis. Once your child has done the activity (if possible) please take a photo of their work and send it to the email address below:
Homework will also weekly Fab 4 Reading, spellings and basic multiplication knowledge, beginning from the 2x times tables. Our Fab4 scores will be collected weekly. This year, children will only be allowed to change reading books on Mondays and Thursdays. Once returned they will be quarantined for 72 hours to ensure the safety of everyone.
We are so lucky in year 3 to also have specialized music lessons every Thursday morning!
Swimming lessons will start in November and will run up to February half term. Look out for details closer the time!
In the meantime, please encourage your child to practice getting changed and redressed quickly and efficiently so we can make sure we can get back to school in time. All earrings must be removed by the children as the adults cannot do this. If they are unable to, they will need to be removed before school.
Finally as a reminder, the children must bring their own water bottles into class. This must ONLY contain water. Juice is NOT allowed.
This may be a different year for the children but I can promise it will be filled with fun, laughter and care. With lots of exciting learning experiences giving your child the best opportunities to excel in their learning. I can't wait to see where our journey together takes us!
