Year 3 Information
Miss Tara Little
Year 3 Teacher
Mrs Samira Souyad
Teaching Assistant and EAL Learning Support
Welcome to Year 3's class page. In Year 3, the teacher is Miss Little; Mrs Rangell teaches for half a day on Tuesday for PPA cover and Miss Dymond and Mrs Souyad teach on Thursday afternoons. The Teaching Assistant that helps with our learning is Mrs Souyad.
Our PE days are on Monday and Tuesday, but please ensure your child has the correct PE kit in school every day.
Home learning is set on a Wednesday and due back the following Monday. Alongside their home learning task, the children will also get 10 words per week to learn as part of their spelling programme. They will be tested on these words every Monday. The children are also expected to read for at least 20 minutes a day, and then reflect on their reading in their own reading diaries. Children will also be expected to practice their times tables (4s, 6s, 8s and know the related division facts).
Half termly Newsletters
Please support and encourage your child to learn their Year 3 and 4 spellings. A list of the spellings can be downloaded below. There is also a copy of the Year 1 and 2 words to support consolidation of their knowledge. There is also a range of strategies to support the learning of these (please see below).
Thank you for your support in your child's learning :)
Word Activities to have fun with at home
We have added some fun word activities to have a go with your child at home.These games can be played in a spare 5 minutes. They are specifically developed to make some of the skills of writing explicit. The essential idea is to play the game again and again so that the children become ‘fluent’ at it and really develop the skills that lie behind it. Skills covered are: developing vocabulary, usual words in unusual combinations, expanding an idea and developing the imagination.
Support and advice for parents
