Welcome to Year 3 and to the Juniors. As Juniors, the children become more independent. With independence comes privileges and responsibilities. They are expected to demonstrate great listening, concentration and effort as well as excellent behaviour, setting a fantastic example to the children in the Infants.
Who Are the Teachers
Mr Torjussen (Class Teacher)
Miss Bennett (SCITT)
Miss Connor (Class Teacher)
Miss Dunne (Class Teacher)
Important Things to Know
P.E. kits are expected to always be in school. P.E. lessons are on Mondays and Thursdays.
In the winter months P.E. lessons will be outside, so it is worthwhile having a grey tracksuit.
Children who do not have their P.E. kit in school will be doing P.E. in their uniform or in one of our spare P.E. kits.
Please avoid sending your child to school wearing earrings on P.E. days.
English, Math and Spelling homework will be set every Friday to be handed in on the following Wednesday.
Homework should take no more than half an hour per subject.
If your child is stuck, please encourage them to come and see their Class Teacher, before the due date, so that we can help them.
Occasionally, project homework will be set that will take a number of weeks to complete; these might replace the separate English and Math homework.
The children are expected to complete a minimum of three signed reads per week in their reading diary.
Children are expected to use neat handwriting at all times when completing homework.
Reading books and diaries should be in school every day.
They will be checked each Thursday.
The School uses a wide variety of reading schemes that directly link with the National Bookband Scheme.
We expect to see three signed reads per week.
Please **** NO NUTS ****
Children are allowed to bring in a piece of fresh fruit or vegetables to eat at break time and are encouraged to have a bottle of water in the classroom to keep hydrated.
If there are any questions or concerns, please drop in to see the Class Teacher or leave a note in your child’s book bag. We are here to help.
Please see the long term planning and weekly timetable to see in detail what is taught in each term and when.
