Year 3's Long Term Plan
Class Teacher: Miss Orgacki
Teaching Assistants: Mrs Hollick (Monday – Wednesday)
Miss Wallis (Thursday and Friday)
Written homework will no longer be sent home; however, we encourage that children read their reading books and practise their spellings, times tables and handwriting throughout the week at home. Reading books and spellings will be sent home on Wednesdays, please may we ask that they are returned to school on Mondays.
We will listen to the children read in school as part of their Guided Reading sessions. Please listen to your child read every night, even if it is just for 10 minutes before bedtime. We also ask that you log and comment on your child’s reading. It is important that children are encouraged to read widely at home, as it will have a positive impact on all aspects of learning. If you have any questions and issues regarding reading books, please do not hesitate to ask a member of Year 3 staff.
Our PE sessions are on Wednesdays and Thursdays, however please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school for the week, including additional items for outdoor PE. If your child wears earrings, please ensure they are removed or covered ready for our PE sessions. It would also be practical and useful for all items of clothing to be labelled with your child’s name on.
It is important that children stay hydrated throughout the school day to help aid concentration. If you wish your child to have a water bottle in school, please could you ensure it has a sports cap and has their name clearly labelled.
Our main trip this year will be a workshop at The Museum of Science and Industry, which will link with our Science and Topic sessions.
We will also be visiting Touchstones, based on our Stone Age topic.
