Holy Family Catholic Primary School

Year 3 – St Bernadette

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

I hope you all had a fantastic Summer break.

Team

Your child's class teacher will be Miss Lloyd, who will be supported by Mrs Miskella and Mrs Daniels throughout the week. 

PE/Swimming

PE will be taught every Monday. However, full P.E kits (white shorts, red t-shirts and daps) need to be in school everyday. If your child wears earrings they must be able to remove them for P.E. If they cannot remove their earrings, please provide them with medical tape so they can cover them up. Swimming will take place every Thursday, starting from 4th October. 

Parental involvement

Parents times tables sessions will run every Wednesday starting from 12th September at 8.55 to 9.10. 

Creative curriculum

Our first topic is Yabba Dabba Do (Prehistoric Britain). There will be a homework project set this term - an additional letter will be sent out with more information. 

Homework

Homework will be set every week. It is given on a Monday and must be returned on a Monday. Each week there will be English and Maths homework. Maths homework will be set via Mathletics.

Reading Books

All pupils will be given two school books to read. We would like children to read at least five times each week. Children have been given a reading journal so their reading can be recorded. It is vital that a record is made after each time they read. Once your child reaches 100 nights, they will be rewarded with a book of their choice by Mrs Carter. Your child's reading record will be checked and reading books will be changed on a weekly basis. You can support children by listening to them read and questioning them on what they have read and especially any new vocabulary they encounter. I have provided each child with a bookmark, which includes examples of suitable questions to ask your child whilst reading. Books must be in school every day. 

Please don’t hesitate to make an appointment to see me if you have any issues you would like to discuss.
