Welcome to Year Three!
My name is Miss Bevington – King and I am thoroughly looking forward to teaching your child this year, as a new teacher to Corpus Christi I am excited to be delivering a fantastic curriculum and seeing the progress each pupil makes. We are very lucky to have Mrs. Nishimwe who will also be supporting your child throughout the year.
Myself and Miss Thompson are very much looking forward to guiding your child on their new journey of learning in Year Three. As a team, we ensure that we create a happy, stimulating and safe learning environment where your child will excel and flourish educationally, socially and emotionally. This is a very exciting year as some children will be making their communion in the summer term.
In Class 3A, we promote the values of respect, trust and care for one another. Children are encouraged to see mistakes as a learning process since most learning occurs when we fail to succeed in something the first time. Determination is key and children are always strongly encouraged to have a go and show independent learning.
Throughout Year Three, children are expected to read every night and have their record signed daily. Pupils often have the opportunity to read during the school day and so therefore, it would be beneficial for the children to ensure they bring in their reading book every day. The children will change their reading books every Friday. Our class will take part in outdoor PE and indoor PE. Please see the PE policy on the website for the correct PE uniform and our class timetable each half term for the days we will have PE. Children must come to school waring their PE uniform on their PE days. For the first half term, the children will have PE every Wednesday and Friday afternoon. The theme for our learning for the first half term is the Egyptians and this curriculum subject will be weaved through all of our subjects.
A polite reminder that the school start time for Year Three is 8:45-9 AM and the finish time is 3:15 PM. The children should bring a clearly labelled water bottle into school and a packed lunch box, if they have packed lunch. The children should also bring a coat to permit all weather conditions. At this time we ask for children not to bring school bags or personal pencil cases.
Please always feel welcome to ask questions to any of us throughout the year. We are always happy to help! We are excited to welcome you and your child into the new school year and joining you and your child on their next exciting adventure!
