Year 3 2019 - 2020
Welcome to Year 3's class page!
The Year 3 teaching team are Mr Walsh (class teacher) and Miss Behan (Learning Support Assistant).
Thank you for visiting our class page. Please ensure that you check here regularly or new information about our class activities and achievements.
Reading is an important aspect of the curriculum and is therefore given a very high profile in class. The children are encouraged to read daily in class and encouraged to read at home for 10 -15 minutes each night. We are extremely lucky in Year 3 to have many helpers who are willing to give up their time to listen to the children read. The children therefore have the opportunitity to read to an adult 2-3 times eac week. Reading books are changed regulary and this can be initiated by the children themseles or by the adult reading with them. I would encourage you to ask the children questions at home about the book they are reading to build the children's inference and comprehension skills. If you have any queries about your child's reading then please do not hesitate to contact me.
In addition to daily reading, children will each receive written homework during the week as follows:
Online Homework - My Maths
Children will need their outdoor PE kits with them on a Mondays and their indoor PE kits with them on Wednesdays
