Welcome to Base 3.
We are a Year 3 class taught by two teachers; Mrs Maddock (Mon-Wed) and Mrs Cartwright (Thur-Fri). We hope that your child has a great year in our class, as we have lots of fun activities planned.
This half term we have been focusing on Predators. Most of our English work has been based on polar bears; from information pages to poetry, we have learnt many facts about this fascinating predator so far!
Homework: Every Friday, homework will be handed out to the class, and will be expected to be handed in by the following Wednesday (at the latest).
Spellings: Children will be tested on their weekly spellings every Tuesday. Their new spellings will then be given out immediately after this test. Please take a look at the National Year 3/4 spelling list here - by the end of Year 4, each child should be able to spell these words.
Reading at home: Reading is a crucial part of every child's development. There will be numerous occasions throughout the week where children will have opportunities to take part in reading activities. It is also essential that they read at home at least five times a week. By doing this, they will receive a raffle ticket which could lead to winning a book of their choice! Please encourage them to read at every opportunity at home; listen to them read and ask them questions about the text.
PE days: Base 3 will have Crossbar for PE sessions on Mondays and Fridays. Please ensure that your child brings their PE kits in to school at the start of the week. We suggest that it remains in school all week, just in case we want some additional active moments! Remember - our PE kit consists of a white t-shirt, blue/black shorts or jogging bottoms and trainers/pumps.
Water bottles: Please encourage your child to bring a labelled water bottle into school. Learning can be thirsty work!
After-school contact: If you need to speak to either of us about your child and their education, please feel free to catch us straight after school in Base 3.
