Year 3 - Maple

Welcome to Maple Class!

 

Class Teacher: Mrs Southernwood     Teaching Assistant: Mrs Hanley

 

Children in Maple Class are starting their journey into Key Stage 2. As well as continuing to deepen their academic understanding, we will be supporting them to further develop their ownership and independence in learning to enable them to be successful throughout Key Stage 2 and beyond. It is an exciting year, full of opportunities to explore and grow.

 

 

Our weekly timetable is organised so that pupils get to explore a wide range of subjects and lessons.

 

PE lessons will be on Monday and Friday. It is essential that pupils bring in their kit for these days.

Our library session will be every Thursday. Please ensure library books are in school on Thursdays to allow pupils to change them.

 

Reading

As pupils continue to develop and improve their reading skills, we find that many pupils in year 3 are ready to explore reading through our Accelerated Reader programme. This allows pupils to select and read books at an appropriate level of challenge.

 

All pupils are provided with a reading record and have the opportunity to bring their books home. It is vital that pupils are able to read and discuss their books at home as well as in school and so we ask that parents sign reading records to communicate this to us.

 

Please ensure that Accelerated Reader bookand reading records come in to school everyday!

 

Homework

Pupils will bring home a letter explaining home learning ideas towards the beginning of each term. It would be beneficial for parents to support pupils to choose two or three activities to complete to support their learning in school.

Spellings will be set weekly on a Monday and tested on Friday. It is important that pupils are supported to practise these at home.
