Welcome to the Year 3 (Elm Class) Page

Your Teacher in Elm Class is Mrs Tania Garner.

Welcome back to a new school year! I hope that you and your family have had a wonderful summer. We are starting off the year with an exciting topic...TREMORS

 
PE days in Elm Class

Elm Class PE sessions will be Friday with Mr Cairns as part of PPA cover and another day, initially Tuesday. In the autumn term, the children in Elm Class will be swimming on a Friday morning. Your child’s PE kit should be kept in school throughout the week as we occasionally need to alter timetabled sessions. Also, for health and safety reasons, jewellery needs to be removed and long hair tied back for to a PE lesson.

 

Homework in Elm Class

  • Homework (usually maths). From time to time, I will set a ‘Learning Logs’ style homework project, linked to our Cornerstones topic, and I will give the children longer to complete this.
  • Times table facts. We will have a timed test every week, as quick recall of key number facts helps the children to be fluent in their maths work. I would greatly appreciate your support helping your child to practise these.
  • Spelling. Every week the children will have a new spelling rule or some Year 3 common exception words to learn.
  • Reading! Children should be reading regularly for their literary development and enjoyment. When you have heard your child read at home (either their school reading book or a book from home), please sign their reading record as I am looking out for keen bookworms who read four or more times per week. Please remind your child to bring their reading book and record into school every day.
