Welcome to 3G & 3D.
Our teachers are Miss Gregory and Miss Daley. Our teaching assistants are Mrs Pedley and Mrs Foote.
3G's PE day is Monday and 3D's PE day is Friday. Our PPA takes place on Tuesday afternoon. We will be having a PE session with SHINE Sports and R.E. with Mrs Pedley. It is essential that your child has a full PE kit in school for every PE session. This needs to include suitable footwear and warm clothing for going outside.
Mr Marsh will work in 3G on Monday mornings.
Term 3 and 4

Our current Power of Reading book is 'How to Train Your Dragon' by Cressida Cowell.
The following is expected to take children an average of 15- 20 minutes maximum each day.
We ask that you read with your child 5 times a week. This only needs to be a 10 minute session and you don’t have to finish a whole book every time. Please record any reads you have done with your child in their reading record as we will be continuing the reading bug challenge.
Each week your child will have one reading session with an adult. During this session, your child might read with their teacher, discuss reading which they have completed at home with you or answer questions about the class book. Each week your child will come home with reading to be completed (approximately 20 pages a week). A new book will be issued once the children have finished their current book.
Your child will also have one library session each week where they are able to choose a library book. The children have free choice with their library books. Again, during the first week you will find out your child’s library day.
Reading does not have to be limited to the books children bring home from school. It can include any books they have at home, reads with siblings or reading books from the local library.
Every Friday your child will be given a list of spellings in their spelling book. They will then be tested on these spellings the following Friday in the form of a dictation. These spelling dictations will be stuck into the children’s spelling books so you can see how they got on.
The spellings will contain the patterns that we will have already learnt in class and are a way of reinforcing these spelling rules. Please practise at least 3 times each week with your child.
The children will be continuing with maths planets this year and will carry on from their end point in Year 2. We will be re-sending the maths planet overviews so that you know what is contained in each level and you have guidance for how to practise for each level. There are sample papers on the maths page on the website to give you an idea of what each stage will look like. Please practise your child’s maths facts at least 3 times a week. If your child is stuck on a level for more than 4 weeks then we will intervene at school.
Alongside these please continue to practise times table facts. Each Friday we will complete a times table challenge in class, so that by the end of Year 3 the children are able to recall their 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables.
In Year 3, children need to be able to read digital and analogue 24 hour time. Continual practice of this at home will hugely support their learning in class.
