Hello, and Welcome to Year 3!
For those who may not have met me, I am Mrs Nessa and I am your Year 3 teacher. I will be teaching the children with the help of support staff.
It is set to be a very exciting year for Year 3. We will be working hard towards achieving our goals! Below is an idea of some of the interesting and fun things we will be doing in class. If you have anything you would like to discuss with me, please feel free to speak to me after school or make an appointment at the office. We are all incredibly excited for the year ahead!
Drop Off and Pick Up
In the morning, doors will be open from 8.20am and the children can make their way to their classroom as soon as they arrive. Please say goodbye to the children away from the door and allow them to make their own way indoors. If you need to speak to your child’s teacher please ring the office to book an appointment. Lessons start from 8.30 am. At home time please wait for your child to be sent to you. The school day ends at 2.45pm.

Ascenders and descenders
Homework will be set on Class Dojo every Monday and is to be uploaded onto your child’s portfolio by the following Monday. If you need a paper copy, please let me know, but we would really like all children to ideally submit the work online.
Reading continues to be one of our key priorities in school, so it is important that children are reading every day at home. All children will take a book home per week and must bring this back daily, along with their reading record. This is very important.
As well as the daily reading lesson, children should be reading for pleasure. Please encourage your child to quiz on Accelerated Reader.
I would like all year 3 children to develop a quick mental recall of multiplications facts, which includes division. To support with this, all children can practice their times tables on TT Rockstars at home. There will be a times tables text every Friday.
We are really lucky to have drama specialists come to our school and work with us in dance and drama. This will be on Mondays. During this time, we will have booster sessions in maths and writing taking place in short bursts of time.
