Welcome to Year 3! We are looking forward to a fantastic year. We will be continuing to celebrate the cultural diversity of our amazing school and ensuring that our curriculum reflects this

Welcome to Year 3

Welcome

 

We are part of a great team in Year 3. Our motto is to 'try everything!' (we even have a song we sing reminding ourselves of this). Each week we work with a different learning partner, giving us a great opportunity to mix and get on with everyone.

 

Reading

 

Miss Varney and Miss Pape still encourage us to read at home most nights, and we are working hard to achieve our Bronze, Silver & Gold Reading badges

 

Homework Projects

 

Each half term we are going to have the opportunity to work on a themed Home Project. The projects will be linked to our Topics that we are learning about in school, we need to try to use recycled materials and help from our families would be great! During the final week of half term, we will invite the parent's in to showcase our creations!

 

Class Dojo

 

We use Class Dojo in class, and encourage our families to sign up too. It is a great way of sharing photos and news from home and school! If you aren't already signed up, Miss Varney will be happy to help.
