Welcome to Year 3, Junior Class 2. Your class teacher is Mrs Latham. The class Teaching Assistant is Mrs Rose.

Children will receive one piece of homework per week, which will either be Maths, English or Topic based work.  Homework will be given out on a Friday and is due back in on the following Wednesday. Children are more than welcome to bring homework back in early, if they are finished.

In addition, children will have a reading book that they will bring home every day. Please encourage your children to read each evening when possible and record this in your child’s reading record. Whenever you feel that your child is ready for a new reading book, they can bring it in and put it into the Changing Tray basket at the front of their classroom and this will be changed for them that day.

We also have a spelling scheme which runs across the whole of the juniors. Your child will be sent home coloured spellings to revise and then these will be tested on timetabled days which will have been sent out through parent mail.

PE lessons are on Tuesdays and Thursdays, however children should keep their PE kits in school all week. They will be sent home every half term to be washed.

Please could all children bring in a bottle with a sports top lid (to avoid spillages). Please only send water in bottles. Bottles will be sent home every evening for washing, to be re-sent in the following morning.

Children are encouraged to bring in a healthy snack for play time, although they are also able to purchase milk and toast from the school hall each day. Any cash sent in with children can be kept in a small purse or wallet but remains the responsibility of each child. Milk or juice is priced at 20p and a round of toast is priced at 15p.

Please find attached information on our curriculum coverage this term.
