Welcome to Year 3SM!!
Welcome to the beginning of your time in Key Stage 2!! I'm sure you'll really enjoy being a Junior and will love all the different things we do here in Year 3.
I know you might be a bit worried about the new beginning, but you'll soon feel really at home here!
The teachers in Year 3 are Mrs Machin (3SM), Mrs Carling (3SM), Miss Lewis (3FL), Miss Ruderham (3FL), Mr Ellis (PE) and Mrs Bently (Music).
Information for 3SM
For the first half term, Individual Reading sessions will be on a daily rota basis , with Mrs Machin and Mrs Carling, so make sure your books are in school everyday!
Reading books can still be changed on most days and children are still expected to read at home to an adult (if possible!) three times a week. Please can you sign the reading record so that we know they have read to an adult.
P.E will be on a Wednesday morning (9.00am - 10.20am) and will be taken by Mr Ellis. The children will be covering a variety of skills in these lessons and will need warm outdoor clothing. P.E lessons will take place on the play ground and field (if it is dry!).
PLEASE CAN YOU NAME ALL THE PIECES OF CLOTHING,
SO THAT YOUR CHILD FINDS IT EASY TO ORGANIZE THEIR BELONGINGS!!
Sale shark's rugby coaching team will be working with this class for the first half term, so additional PE kit will be required. We will send out a more detailed letter at the beginning of term. This coaching will always be outside unless the weather is absolutely grim.....so extra socks are vital!
Homework is given out on a Friday and will be collected in on a Wednesday. It will usually be a piece of Maths/ English work, weekly spellings and reading. This work is normally based on what we have been doing in class that week , so the children will have a background understanding of it already. If your child is really struggling and doesn't understand it, just let us know before the handing in date and we will try to help out. Please don't do more that 60 mins on the homework in order to finish it come what may......just let us know and we'll understand!! Homework shouldn't be a stressful experience for you or your child, so if there are tears and arguments......get in touch A.S.A.P!
Welcome meeting for parents
Monday 10th September 2018 @ 3.15pm.....in 3SM classroom.
