Dolphins Class - Mrs Kirby
A very warm welcome from myself, Mrs Kirby, and the team in Dolphins Class. We are very much looking forward to a productive and enjoyable year with your children – it will be lovely to get to know all of the children and parents/carers throughout the year.
We have a busy and exciting year ahead! This year, the children will be supported by myself, Miss Brewer, Miss McSweeney and Mrs Grier. There are lots of other adults within the Year 3 Team who will be supporting the children in maths and English groups. Please do not hesitate to message me via ClassDojo or come and see me (once all the other children have been dismissed) if you have any concerns at all about your child’s progress or happiness at school.
Year 3 Curriculum
The children will have access to a wide range of subjects as we will be looking at a variety of interesting topics this year, including: Scrumdiddlyumptious, Rocks, Relics and Rumbles, Through the Ages, Predator, Emperors and Empires and Urban Pioneers.
In RE the children will be looking at Christianity and Sikhism.
The children will also be exploring a range of topics in Science, including Plants, Light, Rocks, Humans Including Animals and Forces and Magnets.
PE will be on Thursday. Please make sure your child comes to school wearing their PE kit and has removed their earrings before coming to school if they are unable to remove them by themselves.
Homework will be set every Friday and is to be returned the following Tuesday. The homework will be focused on what we have learnt that week in school to help the children consolidate their learning. I would also like to encourage the children to use Times Table Rock Stars to enhance their times table knowledge. There is also Spelling Shed for the children to use to support their spelling learning. Usernames and passwords for both of these are stuck in the front cover of their reading records.
We would like the children to be reading daily at home. When your child has finished each book, they will then complete a quiz at school. The results of these quizzes will be accessible to you through our Accelerated Reader Home Connect. Please let us know how you feel your child’s reading is progressing with any comments or concerns through their Reading Record.
We look forward to meeting you all and look forward to a very exciting year in Dolphins Class!
