Teacher: Mr Pugh
Teaching Assistant: Miss Bowden
Hello and welcome to Class 6; my name is Mr Pugh. I am really excited about the opportunity to get to know the children and to have a happy and productive school year! Year 3 is an important year for learning; it is a year when children should become competent and confident in new skills, but particularly in reading, writing and maths. We will be working hard learning new skills, practising these skills and applying them across all lessons and subjects.
Our next topic for year 3 is ‘Predator’ where the children will have opportunity learn all about animals, fossils, plants and ecosystems. I wonder what is the ultimate predator…
Homework: Homework will be sent out every Thursday and is expected to be returned each Wednesday (or earlier). Homework returned on time will earn children 3 You’ve Been Spotteds and 10 house points. Children that do not return homework on time will complete it during break times until it is complete. If children miss three weeks in a row, they will receive a dinner time detention. Homework will consist of times tables practise and spellings practise.
PE: Our P.e for this half term will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. Furthermore, it is important for pupils to wear correct clothing for physical activities.For PE children require a round necked T-shirt in the house colours (red for Rooks, yellow for Crows, green for Magpies and blue for Jackdaws), plain black shorts and pumps or trainers. For games activities outside children need a T-shirt and shorts, trainers/boots; shin pads for football and hockey. Track suits or sweatshirts may be worn for games during the winter months. All clothing should be clearly labelled. Jewellery must not be worn for sporting activities and long hair should be tied back.
Author of the half term: Our author for this half term is Dick King Smith. He has written many famous books: the Sheep Pig, the Hodge Heg, Martin's Mice and many more.
Reading books: Children will also be expected to read at home daily – can you please make sure reading records are dated and signed each time you read at home. Children can change thier books in school as many times as they want. Please look out for comments and targets in their reading diaries.
