Y3 Reverence class
Dear Parents and Carers of children in Reverence Class;
Welcome to the Summer Term Newsletter for Reverence Class. Can you believe we are in the final term of Year 3 already? We have so many exciting plans for this term and I’m really excited to get back into our classroom (complete with new sunshine yellow furniture!) to get started! We are extremely lucky this term to be joined in Year 3 by Mrs Midgeley. Mrs Midgeley is a trainee teacher completing her training through the University of Greenwich. As the term progresses Mrs Midgeley will take over much of the teaching supported and observed by both myself and Miss Parr. I’m sure you will join me in welcoming her to our BJR community and Year 3 team. Miss Parr will continue to be in class on Mondays while I am fulfilling my leadership responsibilities. We will all continue to be wonderfully supported in the mornings by the amazing Mrs Morris who keeps us all in check! In the afternoons the fantastic Miss Mona will support us.
This term PE will continue to be taught on a Monday so please make sure that your child has their kit in school on Mondays – this term PE will be outside so the kit must include plimsolls or trainers that can be worn outside. Homework will be given on a Friday and is due back in to us on Wednesday. Please support our in class learning by going through the homework with your child and I would be grateful if you could sign their homework so I know you are aware of what has been set and completed. Please continue to read as much as possible with the children. Please do sign the reading record each time that you listen to your child read and write a supportive comment. Mathletics topics are always open so please make sure that your child is accessing this resource which is free to all children but is quite costly to the school so we must make sure we are using it. We will be having weekly times tables tests this term – I will send the schedule home with the first homework so please make sure you are practising multiplication tables with the children. It is vital that they have rapid recall of the multiplication facts. Spelling tests will continue to be on a Monday – you already have the schedule for the first couple of weeks and we will send out the new schedule shortly.
As always if you have any queries or concerns I am always available on the door at the beginning and end of the day. If you feel that you need longer to talk then please make an appointment through the office and I will be happy to meet with you. Please do remember that the school day starts with Early Work at 8:45am so please make sure that your children are in school at this time having had a good night’s sleep and having eaten breakfast.
