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
Mrs Woodruff & Mrs Nightingale (Class Teachers)

Important Things to Know
P.E. kits are expected to always be in school. P.E. lessons are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
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 given one to borrow, if this is available.
Please avoid sending your child to school wearing earrings on P.E. days.
After half term, the Year 3 children will begin swimming sessions at Surrey Sports Park on Tuesday mornings and will need to bring a swimsuit, towel and a cap for these sessions.
In line with the new Home Learning Policy, your child will receive a half termly Learning Passport.
This includes a range of activities, including some Maths and English that are set at the beginning of each half term. The teachers will set an expectation as to the number of activities to complete but it is pupil choice as to which activities are accomplished. The activities can be completed at any time during the half term; there is no weekly expectation for the activities within the learning passport. The children can bring these activities in (or photographs) whenever they are completed and they will be shared and celebrated in class.
In addition to the Learning Passport, the children are expected to complete a minimum of four signed reads per week in their reading diary and to practise their times tables up to 12 x 12.
Reading books and diaries should be in school every day.
They will be checked each Monday.
The School uses a wide variety of reading schemes that directly link with the National Bookband Scheme.
We expect to see four 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.
