Class 3

Autumn Term

Dear Parents and Carers,


I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you and your Year 3 child back to school. I hope you have had a wonderful summer and are looking forward to an exciting and rewarding year ahead.


This term Mrs Hughes and Mrs Cannings will be supporting children in Year 3.  On a Thursday afternoon Mr Mazzotti and Miss Jackson will cover my PPA time. 




Thursday and Friday are when we have our PE lessons. Friday PE will be swimming up until February half term. Please ensure your child has a bag that can fit all clothing, coat and shoes in as we have to share lockers and this makes it easier to locate your childs items! Your child is welcome to come to school on swimming days with their costume on underneath their PE clothes to save time changing.

Please remember to send your child in their kit PE kit on the day. Pupils with longer hair would benefit from their hair being tied back on this day. No jewellery is allowed on those days unless the children can remove and put it back on themselves.


Children will be given books and are free to change these whenever they need to. We still expect pupils to read daily at home with their school book or own books every day in order to develop their reading, writing and comprehension ability. We are using organisers so please record when you listen to your child read and these will be collected in weekly to check the number of reads.


Please regularly practise times tables and reading every week.

Your child will be given a homework menu which has activities they can choose to do and record in their homework book. These activities are all based around our theme. Children can bring in their homework to show and celebrate on a Wednesday.


The Good to be Green card system and Class Dojo will be used to encourage positive behaviour. This means that your child will start the day on a green card but they may be promoted to a gold or even a platinum card for hard work, good manners, being helpful. We also have a 'Kindness Tree' in our classroom where children who display acts of kindness can write their name on a leaf which is then added to our tree.


If you have any queries or questions we are always here to help. As you know time is limited before school and after for a short chat, so please feel free to contact the school to arrange a meeting with myself to discuss any concerns you may have. If you have an important message or worry, please contact us as soon as you can so we can address them as soon as we can.


Yours sincerely,

Mrs Doel
