Year 3 2021 - 2022
“The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go.”
Hello and welcome to Year 3,
My name is Mr Tinkler. I will be your teacher when you start in Year 3.
I hope that you are as excited about your new adventure as much as I will be to have you in my class. I promise I will be trying as hard as I can to ensure you work to the very best of your ability each day, and in everything you are presented with. I also guarantee that you will have an exciting, fun-filled year. There are so many fantastic topics and great books to read and I know you will love learning nearly as much as I love teaching them.
We will journey back thousands of years in History to learn about The Stone Age, The Iron Age and The Ancient Egyptians. In English, we read some fantastic books such as Stone Age Boy, The Bear in the Stars, The Pirate Cruncher and Jumanji which tie in nicely with some of our topics, and will help us develop into amazing readers and writers. In Maths, we will use the Maths No Problem scheme as well as 5-a-day, practising our 3, 4 and 8 times tables and a variety of lesson starters based on things like shape, measures and fractions. The rest of the curriculum will be just as fantastic and I have no doubt you will learn lots of wonderful new things.
I have attached this half term's newsletter which provides you with more details regarding the wider curriculum.
During the week, I will provide you with a good daily routine, so you know exactly what we are doing each day. At the end of the week, we give rewards such as Star of the Week, Handwriter of the Week and maybe even a Headteacher Award. The class star will get to look after Brian Sockdog, our class mascot. I also set brain-teasing riddles, tell terrible jokes, and share lots of funny stories. We have so much to look forward to.
Year 3 will mainly be taught in the classroom but there will be opportunities to venture out and about when the time is right. There are some photographs to help you see what the classroom looks like. You could even log onto our school website to have a look at the exciting learning that life in Year 3 brings. Each half term, I will upload several blogs to remind us all of the fantastic learning we are experiencing in Year 3.
Don’t forget, you will be bringing in a healthy snack from home to munch during playtime.
The most important thing is that you do NOT worry about anything. I will be there to make sure your first day is a good one. And, of course, every other day too. I know that most of you will be excited and ready to return to school after your summer break. That is how I feel. However, I am also a little nervous too because it is a new start and some things will be different. Some of you will have these feelings too. Please do not worry. I will be there to help you settle in and make sure you are as happy as can be.
Keep well and look after each other.
Love from Mr Tinkler X
