Autumn Term - Welcome Back! 

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 now with Lockdown easing are looking forward to an exciting and rewarding year ahead.

Staffing

This term Year 3 children will benefit from having two teachers, myself and Mrs Doel, to support them further develop their key reading, writing and maths development every morning. I will teach the remaining curriculum subjects in the afternoon. Mrs Doel will teach the class on a Monday morning whilst I carry out my SENCO duties and have PPA time.

Curriculum

The topic for Year 3 this term is ‘The Romans’. We will be reading stories around this subject and Finding out about life in Roman Britain. In science we will be investigating ‘Rocks’, we will discover the different types of rocks and how they are formed, compare and group rocks based on appearance and simple properties. They will also learn how fossils are formed and then investigate the permeability of different types of soil. PE will be Gymnastics where we will be practising our gymnastics skills. We will be covering lots of other subjects as well so it will be a busy term!

PE

Wednesday is when we have our PE lesson and later in the school year we will be going swimming.

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.

Reading

Children will be given books and have bug club updated next week. We still expect pupils to read daily at home with their school book, own books or on bug club every day in order to develop their reading, writing and comprehension ability. We are not using organisers at present but using bug club still allows us to see how regularly and well your child is doing remotely.

Homework

Spellings - Weekly spellings will continue to go out every Monday and tested the following Monday. The timetables challenge will continue from last year and also be tested on the same day please remember to practise them both throughout the week.

Once the term is fully underway children may be sent home other homework to consolidate their learning in reading, writing and maths as well as looking into our topic.

Behaviour

The Good to be Green card system which every class uses, so that it is focussed more on the positive. 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. I will endeavour to let you know at the end of the week if your child has achieved a gold card or platinum via the school app or text.

 

If you have any queries or questions we are always here to help. If you need to contact us to discuss anything please contact me or Mrs Dole on the Class 3 email class3@stjohns-pri.notts.sch.uk. As you know unfortunately due to our safety precautions at this time we won’t be able to chat before or after school in the normal informal way, so emailing me or calling the school to arrange a telephone call back is the best way to get in touch and 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,

Mr Mazzotti

                                        Summer Term

 

Welcome back everyone for a very different summer term! I hope you had a Egg-cellent Easter, with lots of fun, family time, chocolate! Hopefully you have also been staying active, creative and busy too.

 

I will be uploading a daily learning menu which roughly will follow this structure:

Daily - PE, Reading, Spelling, Mathematics, English,

Once per week  - Computing, Science, History, Geography, RE, Music or Art.

 

As a school we are here to support you as best we can during this difficult and strange time. Do as much as you can, whatever what works best for you as a family. Do the tasks in any order or if something isn't working for you, leave it out and please contact me with photos, videos, questions, or just to say hi. I am well aware how hard it is trying to work and keep your children in a routine at home, so don't worry if it doesn't go to plan! It's been amazing to see what some of you have been up to the last few weeks during the holiday and it would be lovely to see what else you've been doing!

See you on the same website with more things to do tomorrow!

Happy Easter Class 3!

Hi Everyone!

Even though it's now officially the holidays I thought I would set you a few things to do to keep busy!

Have a great time the next couple of weeks and don't eat too many Easter Eggs, save some for me instead! Don't forget to send me some photos of what you've all been up to!

I can't wait to see you all soon,
