Miss Austin



Hi everyone,

We’ve made it! It’s finally the last week and almost time for a rest over summer. I can’t quite believe it’s got to this point and we haven’t been able to see each other again in our classroom. I never thought when lockdown began that it would be the last time I’d teach you all. Although the end of the year is a bit bittersweet this year, I hope you will be able to join me on Friday for our virtual Year 3 graduation. I’d love to see you all before we break up.

Last week, you were sent your reports which I hope you’re all proud of. I also hope you’ve enjoyed looking through Miss Cope’s transition letter. She will be ringing you all over the course of this week to have a chat about the last few months and how you’re feeling about September.

Remember to keep photographing your work and email them to me and they will be uploaded onto our webpage. Send them to: Your timetable for week 14 of home learning is attached below. It is not quite as busy as previous weeks so enjoy starting to wind down for the beginning of the holidays. We all deserve a break!

Sending hugs to my fab 30! 🙂 I hope to see you on Zoom on Friday but if you can’t make it then have a fabulous summer and I’ll pop up to see you when you’re settled with Miss Cope in September.

Miss A x

Year 3

Here is the  long term plan, giving a brief overview of the learning which will be covered in Year 3 over the course of the academic year.

Curriculum map for year 3

This half term our topic will be ‘Tremors.’  Please find below a link to an overview of the learning we are doing across the curriculum this half term.

Below you will find pictures and updates of all of the exciting learning that we have been doing in Year 3.

parents newsletter

term 4 overview

Spellings; We will be issuing your child with a new set of spellings every Friday. They can be found in your child’s spelling book which they will bring home each week. Please ensure they are in school EVERY FRIDAY. Take some time to practise these with your child, little and often is best. There are lots of fun ideas and activities you could use to help with this such as practising in sand or shaving foam, rainbow spellings, pyramid spelling or even have a practise in the condensation at bath time!

Times Tables; Each week your child will have a times or divide table to learn. By the end of Year 3 the expectation is that children will know their x2, x3, x4, x5, x8 and x10 tables and the related division facts. The table your child needs to learn each week will be written in their Reading Record along with their other homework.

Homework; Your child will receive a piece of Maths or English homework on alternate weeks in their CGP booklets. This will always be linked to the learning we have been doing in class. The children will write the page that they need to complete in their reading record every Friday and it should be returned to school by the following THURSDAY so that I can mark it. Please support and encourage your child to do their homework as independently as they can, we are really striving for that independence and personal responsibility now we are Juniors. If you are unsure as to what homework your child needs to be doing there is a notice board outside of the classroom which is updated each week. If you are finding something on your child’s homework difficult please come and speak to me and I can show/explain the best way to support your child.

Reading; Now that your child is in Juniors we will not be listening to them read on an individual basis as often. However, please be assured we will be monitoring the progress of their reading very carefully through activities such as group reading during ERIC time, comprehension activities during ERIC time and discrete English lessons dedicated to developing reading skills. The expectation is that your child still reads for 10 minutes EVERY NIGHT at home. Please record this in your child’s reading record. Your child also has their reading map inside their reading record whereby they can collect rewards and prizes for reading with an adult at home. We will be monitoring how often children are reading at home.

PE Days; Please make sure your child’s PE kit remains in school throughout the half term. Our PE days are as follows; Wednesday morning with Mrs Morgan at the Leisure Centre and on a Monday afternoon in school with myself.

Show and Tell; Each week I will choose one child for Show and Tell. They will bring home a note on a Friday night explaining the task and they can bring in something to share with the class on the following Friday.

School Clubs; If your child is interested in attending any of the school clubs on offer then please see the link on the school website or speak to myself. If we have more interest in clubs that we have space for we will keep the notice boards updated with a list of children who have the first slot and then we will rotate the spaces over the next few half terms so everyone will get a chance to participate.

I will be running Film Club for Year 4, 5 and 6 on Thursday  after school this half term.

Don’t forget to bring a healthy snack for morning break.

Please keep checking the website for notices and to see photographs of the different things we have been learning!
