Year 3 - Zebra & Giraffe

Welcome to Year 3

The teachers are Mrs. Hogben, supported by Mrs. Watson  in Giraffe Class and Mrs. Griffiths, supported by Mrs. Clarke and Mrs. Smurthwaite in Zebra Class. 

 

Now we are entering Term 5, the children are familiar and confident with the Year 3 routine and timetable. There is an increased expectation on the children to take responsibility for their organisation and learning. Please can you help them by checking that they have completed home learning activities and are reading regularly at home.

 

Look at the links to different websites at the bottom of this page to support and enhance your child's learning experience.

 

The children will need their indoor PE kits (blue shorts, white T-shirt, plimsolls) on Wednesdays and outdoor Games kits (preferably trainers, caps and sun cream as the weather gets warmer) on Mondays. These can be left in school on their pegs. Please can we ask that all long hair is tied up and earrings are removed or covered with earing tape on PE days which needs to be provided from home.

Year 3 are also swimming during Terms 5 and 6. Each class will have six sessions starting with Zebras in Term 5. The happens on a Wednesday morning and will replace their indoor PE session while they swim. Letters will be sent home with Giraffe class towards the end of Term 5 with dates and requirements.

 

The children are welcome to bring in fruit for morning play as fruit is not provided for children in Key Stage 2.   

 

We look forward to working with you to enable your child to achieve their full potential and have a successful year in Year 3.
