Welcome to Chestnut!

Class teacher: Miss Gascoine 

Teaching assistant: Mrs Dawe

PE days: Thursday (swimming until 9th December) and Friday 

There are lots of exciting things to look forward to in Year 3! We will be learning about The Stone Age to The Iron Age in the Autumn term. Followed by a geography focused unit towards the later end of the term. 

Reading record books will be checked on Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure children have reading records book in school every day. 

In year 3, the children are given the freedom to choose their books so you may see the same book more than once. That is absolutely fine. I will hear your child read in many contexts throughout the week however, if you have any concerns/questions, please feel free to leave a note in your child’s reading record book or on Class Dojo. 

Our library slot is on a Friday.

Children will usually be given the same spelling focused task:

To find and practice words with a particular spelling pattern or rule.

This is to ensure children understand the etymology of the word and are able to apply these rules to their writing. In addition to the spelling pattern or rule, children are expected to learn common exception words from the year 3/4 word list. Of course they have this year and next to learn these so we wont expect children to have learned them all. These can be found inside your child’s reading record book.
