We are the..
Hello and welcome to Year 3!
I am Miss Giles, the Doves' class teacher. Mrs Nagdee is in class to support the children's learning and Mrs Ishmail and Mrs Sumner support individual pupils on a 1:1 basis.
You can contact me via the school office, or at the usual email address
To find out more about the wonderful things your child will be learning each term please look at the class newsletter at the bottom of the page.
Becoming a Super Learner
In the Doves we reflect on our learning continuously throughout the week. However, every Friday the children will undertake a more deeper thinking task where they will be asked about what has been successful with their learning for that week. They will also think of ways in which they can make improvements with their learning approach for the following week. Please talk to your child about this and see what they have decided their 'Super Learning' targets will be and ask them how they are getting along with them.
Working at Home
Your child will have home learning activities each night so please can you make sure that your child has their purple book bag with them before they set off for school each morning.
Each Thursday they will bring home two reading books so please ensure that your child reads and has their reading record signed 4 times per week. Try to ask them finding and thinking questions about what they have read.
Every Monday they will also bring home their weekly spellings which need to be practised each night.
Homework will be set online each Monday & Friday. Activities to be completed will either be on Purple Mash, Mathletics or Times Tables Rockstars. The Doves have their login details so please encourage your child to go on these sites to complete homework linked to the week's learning.
