Year 3

Welcome to Year 3:

Mr Lawler is teaching Benjamin Zephaniah Class this year and Mrs Borecka is the class teacher in Miriam Makeba Class.

Key Times 

Homework 

Homework consists of:

How can I help at home? 

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 25 minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school as it will support them with learning spellings and improve their knowledge of reading comprehension.  

Children have logins for Times Tables Rock Stars, and Purple Mash– please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts. Practicing times tables frequently is vital, and children should be confident in their times tables by the end of year 4. 

Please encourage them to read frequently If you have any questions, please talk to Mr Lawler or Mrs Borecka. Alternatively, you may contact us via the school email. 

Thanks,  

Mr Lawler and Mrs Borecka
