Year 3 - Lemurs & Meerkats

Welcome to the Meerkat and Lemur Class Page

2016/17

 

Teachers: Mrs Robertson

          Mrs Burleton

             Miss C Hodsman

Below is some useful information for the year:

 

Spellings:

Spellings are sent home weekly for your child to learn with a specific spelling rule. They will then be tested on Monday mornings. Please practise at home as much as you can because the spellings will become progressively more tricky throughout the year. 

 

The full list of spellings for the year, with the date they will be given out can be viewed here:

 

 

 

 

 

PE:

Our PE day will be on a Wednesday. 

 

Reading:

We encourage parents to read with their children as often as possible at home. When you read with your child or they read independently, please record it in their reading books as they will receive a house point for reading 3 or more times in one week.

 

Times tables:

This year, we will be focusing on the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. There is a help and record card in your child’s homework folder.

 

 

  • Please bring in a fresh labelled water bottle every morning as we will be having regular water breaks

  • A healthy snack really helps your child with their learning and concentration, so please send one in each day. Alternatively, your child can purchase a snack through the canteen via your parent pay account

  • Break times will be at 10.15am until 10.30am

  • Lunch times will be at 12.15pm until 1.15pm

We have an open door policy so please do come in and we will try to help you with any questions or concerns about your child's needs.
