3P Mrs Potter

Welcome to 3MP.

 

Class Teacher: Mrs Michelle Potter 

Teaching Assistant: Mrs Sharon Bassett

 

If you are ever unable to catch me for a chat at the end of the day, please do get in touch:

email: michelle.potter@stmatthewsstcmat.org

Class Dojo: please leave me a message - it is lovely to hear how the children are getting on at home and this is a great way to ask questions about their school day too.

Reading Diaries: Pop a little note in your child's diary if you need to. It is good to hear about the children's reading endeavours at home. smiley

 

We are so proud of our Learning Stars and Value Stars. Well done!

Useful Information

  • Timings:The school gates are open each morning at 8.20am, so that children can enter the classrooms from 8.30am. Morning activities will be provided and the register will be taken at 8.40am. The end of the school day for Y3 children is 3.20pm. 
  • PE: Our class PE sessions will be every Monday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child has their full PE kit (with name labels) in school all week in case of any changes. All children at St Matthew's are asked to wear their school PE kits to school every Friday; children do not wear school uniform on this day. 
  • Home-learning: New home learning activities will be handed out every Friday. Home learning will then be collected for marking on the following Wednesday. Please encourage your child to try their best and take pride in the work they do in their home learning books.
  • Reading: We will read with your child at least once a week during our guided reading sessions and individually as often as possible. We will also provide some time daily for the children to read to themselves and to change their books as and when required. The more reading practice the children have the better, so supporting your child's reading at home is essential. Where possible, as well as listening to your child read each day, please also ask questions about the text. These might be questions that ask them to think about what has happened, what might happen next or what they believe about an event or fact in their book. Enjoy! smiley
  • Times Tables: By the end of year 3 children are expected to know the 1,2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables. Please practise this vital skill at home however you like by saying them aloud, writing them down or learning the many times tables available online.
  • Spelling and times tables quizzes: We will have weekly times tables and spelling quizzes in class on Wednesdays, which the children would have practised for the previous weeks home-learning.
