Welcome to Year 3!
My name is Miss Moroney and we have Janette helping in our classroom. I am so looking forward to a happy and successful year together.
PE will take place on Thursdays. Please ensure that your child comes prepared for PE by bringing their PE uniform which they can change into whilst at school (white t-shirt, black shorts / bottoms and black trainers).
Google Classroom, Spellings and Mathletics
This term we will continue to use Google Classroom to post homework and make announcements. I will post the homework every Friday, this will be due to be returned the following Wednesday. Children will be tested on spellings and maths homework every Friday, so please ensure your child is prepared. Children are encouraged to practice their Mathletics every week, by doing this, they can earn exciting certificates which they will receive in our awards assembly every Friday.
Children are now permitted to bring their book bags to school, we will also be using reading records in our classroom. Reading records will be checked every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, so please encourage and support your child to read at home. Children are expected to use their reading records to write comments about the book that they are reading. Children will be able to change their books on these days.
This half-term, our Geography topic is Scotland and we will be focusing on Scottish folk and fairy tales in literacy. During maths, we will be looking at place value up to 100 and we will be studying forces in our science lessons.
Trips and Workshops
We have some exciting trips and workshops to look forward to this term. On 30th September, our class will be taking a trip to the Portrait Gallery to experience an art workshop called 'Talking Paintings'. We will also be taking part in an African dance workshop every Wednesday at school.
I will be happy to help if you have any questions, please let me know. Thank you,
