Welcome back to school and a very warm welcome to Year 3. The children have settled in well and are becoming more familiar with the class routines and expectations.
We are delighted to be teaching your children in Year 3. This year I am very lucky to be team teaching with the wonderful Mrs Gare each morning and some afternoons. She will also be leading the class during my SENDCo release day.
We look forward to working in partnership with you to ensure a successful and happy year this year for your children. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with any query of concern, no matter how small!
Mrs Claire Miller, Mrs Gare and the Year 3 team.
Links to VERY useful things!
www.sumdog.co.uk FANTASTIC, fun website which each of our children have their own login for. Play against others, earn items for your SUMDOG house, compete in regional and national competitions; a whole variety of really fun games covering all areas of maths. SUMDOG adapts its questions to your child’s ability. If your child has forgotten / misplaced their SUMDOG login, please speak to me.Enter text...
A ROCKIN’ way to practice your times tables and division facts. To make things easier, each child’s login for this site is exactly the same as their SUMDOG login. Children have their own avatar (complete with rock-name!), earn coins to get items for their character, and can practice their times tables in four main games – Garage, Studio, Arena and Festival. Children can see their stats in the form of leader boards and heat-maps, flagging up the times table facts they are finding more tricky to remember in red, and those that they are confident with in green. The site will also work on an iPad!
