Year 3 teachers have visited Purple & Blue class Year 2 have attended celebration assemblies Met Year 5 buddies Shared playtimes at The Ridge and Broadway Lunch at The Ridge Tour of The Ridge and worked in Year 3 classrooms

3 At the beginning of Year 3 We will assess the children to gain a clear understanding of the level at which they are currently working. This will inform our planning so that we can ensure the work is pitched at the correct level for all children. Using these September assessments and our knowledge of your child, they will be put into Literacy and Numeracy groups with children of a similar ability within the class. The children are also grouped across the year for daily spelling lessons.

4 Behaviour Rewards and Sanctions Raffle tickets to reward good behaviour House points to reward good effort or attainment in their learning Golden time can be earned on a weekly basis. Stickers Verbal praise Visit to Mr. Boult for praise Informing parents – certificates/feedback Follow behaviour policy Behaviour sanction sheet Visit to Mr. Boult to reinforce expectations of behaviour Informing parents of our concerns

5 School Houses In September your child will be placed into a school “House”. They will remain in this house throughout their school life. Each week the house points are collected and the winning house is announced in a celebration assembly. Your child will also represent their house at sports day events.

6 A typical school day Children are allowed on the school site from 8.40am. There will be no supervision before this time. If riding to school on a bike or scooter, the children must secure them using the racks by the Bridge Garden. The bell rings at 8.50am and your child will line up with their belongings ready for the teacher. Your child’s class teacher will collect them and take to their classroom. At the end of the day please collect your child from outside the same door.
