Class 4 (Year 3) - Mr Goodwin
Welcome to Year 3, Class 4. Mr Goodwin is the class teacher, working alongside Teaching Assistants, Miss Kennedy and Mrs Carter.
Year 3 is a very important year as children transition in to Key Stage 2. We will be spending a lot of time building on the skills and knowledge developed during the children's time in year 2. We will begin to prepare for the end of year 4 Times Table Check, starting with the 3, 4 and 8 times tables, whilst developing the children's knowledge of 2's, 5's and 10's.If you have any questions, then Mr Goodwin will be available on the playground either before or after school.
Your child will bring home a reading book every day. Please listen to them read and write a comment in their reading record. The reading record also has suggested questions that you could ask your child about the book they are reading. Both your child's reading record and book should be returned to school every morning.
Your child will bring home their weekly spellings on a Friday, focussing on a new spelling rule. The spellings will be made up of a group of up to 20 words. 10 of these will be selected for the spelling test the following Friday. These spelling sheets do not need to be returned to school.
Your child will bring home maths work on a Friday. This should be completed and returned to school the following Friday.
Our PE day is a Thursday. Children are required to wear shorts, a t-shirt and appropriate footwear. PE kit should not be the t-shirt and/or footwear that the pupils wear to school.
From September until February, our PE lessons will be swimming. This will take place every Monday at Mill House Leisure Centre. Children should bring a towel, swimwear and a swimming cap every Monday. With written permission, children are also allowed to wear swimming goggles.
