Class 3B

Staff: Miss Basser and Mrs Metcalfe
Additional support: Mrs Purvis
Welcome to 3B’s class webpage!
We are a class of 30 enthusiastic children! Our teacher is Miss Basser and on a morning we have help from Mrs Metcalfe. We are concentrating on working together as a team along with 3EF to ensure we have a hardworking, friendly and well behaved team of year 3 children! Our classroom is a fun learning environment where we encourage children to enjoy their learning.

Curriculum
This year we are learning all about past civilizations and what lies beneath the surface of the earth, countries and societies around the world and what is was like being a Roman.   We have lots of exciting activities and events planned across the school year to enhance these exciting topics, so please keep an eye on newsletters and social media for dates and times!

P.E.
We have P.E. on Monday, Tuesday and Friday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has a P.E kit at school for these days.  P.E this year is taught by Mr McMahon.

Music
On a Wednesday afternoon, we have singing practise with the rest of year 3 and year 4 with Mr Simons. We will also be taking part in learning to play the violin, on a Thursday morning.

P.S.H.C.E.
We have Mr Beaumont for P.S.H.C.E. on a Tuesday afternoon.

Spelling Test
Your child will be tested each Friday on the spellings that they have been learning as part of their homework.

Homework
Homework is handed out on a Friday and needs to be returned to school by the following Wednesday. We are continuing to take part in the reading challenge so try to read at least 3 times a week.

How to help your child
Please ensure that your child brings their reading diaries into school every day and reads at least three times a week at home. It is also important that children complete their homework on time and support should be given to children as necessary. By the end of Y3 it is expected that children will know most of their times tables so regular practice of these would also be beneficial.  Reading books and researching the topics we will be covering would also be really useful.

We have an open door policy so if you ever need to speak to one of the teachers, please call in before or after school, telephone or go to the office to make an appointment.

We are really excited about working with your children this year, introducing them to Key Stage 2 life and helping them progress in all curriculum areas throughout the year!
