Welcome to Year 3!
In Year 3 you will find Miss Brierley (Class teacher) and Mrs Gilchrist (Class teaching assistant) amongst a class of very busy and lively learners.
Mrs Gilchrist and I aim to work together to provide your child with the best education possible, making a smooth transition into Key Stage 2. We strive to create a stimulating learning environment in order to influence your child’s development over the academic year.
The homework that your child is given is planned to consolidate their learning from inside the classroom. Homework is given once a week on a Thursday; your child will receive: a piece of English (Writing, Reading, Grammar or Punctuation), Maths and Spellings. This should be handed in the following Tuesday. Please help by encouraging your child to complete their homework every week to the very best of their ability.
In addition to this, please encourage your child to read as much as possible and support your child in learning their times tables; in Y3, children are at a really pivotal point where they’re beginning to see and understand how knowing their times tables links to so many areas of mathematics, so please keep supporting!
Our PE lessons usually take place on a Monday and Thursday afternoon. However this isn’t set in stone as our timetable can always change, so please can you make sure your child’s PE is always in school.
Should you have any issues, feel free to come and see me. Once again, thank you for your help and continued support as we work together to get the very best for your child.
Miss Brierley & Mrs Gilchrist
