Welcome to Year 3!
Miss Barker welcomes you to Year 3.
“Today you are you! That is truer than true! There is no-one alive who is you-er than you!” ~ Dr Seuss
Reading books ~ We understand the importance of your child engaging with the home school reading we provide. To avoid reading folders being brought to and from school on a daily basis, we ask that your child bring ONLY their current/completed reading book to school either on a Tuesday OR Thursday so that we can quarantine them at school for 72 hours and then replace the reading book for your child to bring home.
Reading records for parents and teachers will be completed on Google Classroom. An assignment will be set on Google Classroom for each pupil to complete their reading record with their parent on a weekly basis.
We encourage the use of Oxford Owl, HWB and Doodle Maths ~ All of which the links are below.
Homework ~ Homework will be set via Google Classroom. Homework will be set at the discretion of the class teacher each term and will link to the class topic, English genre or Maths unit. Please upload your child’s homework to Google Classroom for this to be shared with the Class Teacher and feedback will be provided.
Communication ~ Clear communications with our Abermorddu families is of great importance, particularly with not being able to collect your child in the ‘normal’ way by the class door. With this is mind, due to the huge success of Google Classroom during lockdown we feel that this method of communication will be the best and safest way to communicate any specific messages between class teachers and parents. Therefore, please check your notifications on a daily basis. All main school information will continue to be sent via the main school office via email.
P.E ~ This year PE will be on a Tuesday and we are asking for children to come dressed wearing their school PE kit. We recommend that your child wears jogging bottoms/leggings, if they wish, due to PE sessions only being held outdoors due to Covid-19.
Snack ~ Children must bring in a HEALTHY snack for break time everyday, a piece of fruit is ideal.
Water bottles ~ Water bottles must be brought to school on a daily basis. Please note, the bigger the water bottle the better or simply provide your child with two bottles of water as it is vitally important they drink enough during the school day.
