Croeso / Welcome
Blwyddyn 3 / Year 3
Your child’s teacher is:
Mrs Grennan (Class Teacher)
Miss Phillips (PPA)
As your child moves up to KS2, there are a few changes that you should be aware of such as school times, homework as well as a few others!
School starts at 9.00 am. A member of staff will be on the Junior yard from 8.50 am. If you would like your child to come to school earlier than this, breakfast club is available from 8.15 am. Children are not permitted on the Junior Yard earlier than 8.50 without a parent/guardian.
School ends at 3.15 pm and parents wait on the Junior Yard until class teachers dismiss their classes.
School dinner money should be paid on Monday. All money should be placed in an envelope with your child’s name, class and amount clearly labelled.
Apples and bananas are available to purchase from the KS2 Fruit Shop at a cost of 20p each. Year 6 pupils collect the money on a Monday.
KS2 pupils have Pupil Planners instead of Reading Records. Pupils will be issued with these during their first week. It is very important that your child brings their planner to school every day and we expect parents to check the planners daily/weekly and sign them every week. The planners are also used as a home/school link as well as to issue parents evening appointments.
If a planner is lost, a replacement planner will cost £5.00.
Pupils have homework on a fortnightly basis. Homework is in the form of a grid – some compulsory tasks and some voluntary. Dojo’s will be given for the number of tasks completed.
Year 3 PE day will be Thursday. Your child will need to bring their PE kit to school on this day. PE consists of t-shirt, shorts/ joggers and trainers.
There will be an emphasis on learning times tables, spelling patterns and reading in Year 3. A letter will be sent via schoop/website giving details of literacy, maths and science topics covered this term.
It is really important that you make us aware of any issues or worries that your child may have so that we can deal with them early on. Also, it is very important that you inform staff of any medical issues as soon as possible.
We will be sending letters and information home via SCHOOP. If you have already downloaded SCHOOP, please download from Google play or apple app store. The school code is 7749.
We aim to make your child’s transition from Foundation Phase to KS2 as stress free and as smooth as possible. If you do have any concerns at all, please do not hesitate to contact a member of staff – we are more than happy to put your mind at ease.
This is a very exciting time in your child’s learning journey.
Welcome to KS2!
