Welcome to Year 3
Teacher : Mrs Strugnell
TA: Ms Smith and Ms Woods
Welcome to the Spring Term! I hope everyone had a wonderful winter break. We have made a great start to learning in 2019 already and I hope the children are looking forward to the weeks ahead as much as I am.
For homework this term, students will receive their homework and spelling words on a Wednesday. This will be due back completed by the following Monday. They will also be tested on their spelling words on a Wednesday. The children are expected to do their home reader each week and will need at least 3 signatures from someone who has listened to them read at home. This rule applies across the whole of KS2.
This term year 3 will be “Word Detectives,” exploring a range of rules and spelling patterns. We will also be looking at lots of different sorts of poems as well as writing our own.
