Welcome to Year 3! Lapwings class is taught by Miss Campbell Monday to Wednesday and Mrs Austin Wednesday to Friday with Mrs Manley covering for 1 hour of PPA a week on a Wednesday. Our teaching assistants are Sophie, Nicky and Michelle.
It is important that all children have a coat, drinks bottle and healthy break time snack in school with them every day.
Homework is given out every Friday via Class Dojo and must be handed in on the following Wednesday. This will include a list of spellings to learn which the children will be tested on every Friday. The other piece of homework given may vary week to week.
Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Children must have the correct PE kit in school with them on these days. The clothing should be black trousers/shorts, a white t-shirt, a plain jumper and pumps or trainers. Please ensure your child's PE kit is suitable for all weathers.
Reading is extremely beneficial for your child and is encouraged in any form. Children should be reading daily at home and signing their reading records. Parents are encouraged to listen to their child read or read with them, also signing their reading record. Children read daily in school and are regularly provided with opportunities to change their reading books, they should have their reading book in school with them every day. Children also have a weekly visit to the library where they have the opportunity to choose and take home a reading book from here. 'Literacy Planet' can also be accessed to support your child with their reading, spelling and Literacy skills.
In Lapwings, we complete a weekly times tables test. Children are encouraged to beat their score each week and then identify where extra practice is needed. 'Times Tables Rock Stars' is a fun and exciting way for the children to practise!
