Year 3 A - Miss Dunabin 2021 - 2022
Welcome to Year 3
Our names are Miss Dunabin and Mrs Evanson. Learning in Year 3 is supported by Mrs Whittaker.
In the afternoons, we will be looking at a range of topics in our class. In History, we will be learning about the Bronze and Iron Age. In Science, we will be studying plants. In R.E we will be learning about Christianity.
This term we are looking at Place Value and Addition and Subtraction.
Children should continue to practise their times tables (2’s, 3’s, 5’s and 10’s) as this is an important skill across all areas of mathematics. In Year 3 we will also be learning our 4- and 8- times tables.
Those Year 3’s who are on Literacy this half-term will be taught by Mrs Evanson and Miss Dunabin.
Our first writing task will be to write a set of informative piece, inspired by our class text ‘Animals of Farthing Wood’.
Read Write Inc
Those year 3’s who are on our Read Write Inc. phonics programme this half-term will be assessed and grouped according to the child’s level.
Your child will bring home books every Thursday to share with you. Please support them by listening to them read and asking questions about what they have read. They might also enjoy teaching you the sounds and words at the front of the story books. These books need to be returned to school each Monday.
There will be a charge of £2 per book for lost or damaged books.
Children receive weekly Art sessions on Fridays led by Mrs Walsh.
Our PE days are Monday (with Miss Dunabin) and Fridays (with Mrs Evanson).
Please make sure that your child has a named kit, which includes black pumps or trainers, black shorts and either a green or white t-shirt. Long hair needs to be tied back. Children will not be able to borrow spare PE kit at this current time.
All earrings need to be removed before school or the lesson for PE sessions. Where ears have recently been pierced, it is essential that children have their own plasters from home to cover their earrings. This needs to be done either at home or by the child themselves. This is in line with the school policy.
Excellent attendance is vital for helping your child to achieve their full potential. Please ensure your child is in school promptly at 8.40am.
Year 3 finishes at 3.15pm and children continue to be collected from classrooms at this time.
Spellings will be given out every Monday to be practiced at home for a spelling test the following Thursday.
Parents are encouraged to read with their children every day to support progress in reading and to help nurture a love for reading.
Mrs Evanson and Miss Dunabin
