A bit about us.....
Hi all! I have taught at Crindau since September 2020 and have taught across KS2 and Foundation phase. I love teaching especially year 3. I am excited about using the new Welsh curriculum this year and getting enthusiastic about learning new things with the children. I am a creative teacher with a love for the sea and caring for our world. I teach your fabulous children on a Monday and a Tuesday and I teach other classes the rest of the week. If you need anything or wish to chat to me please let me know.
Hello! I have taught in both KS2 and Foundation Phase for the last 10 years. I am on the Senior Leadership Team in Crindau and am in charge of skills across the curriculum, which means I get very excited about English, maths and technology (boring I know). I absolutely love teaching and see it as a job from the heart. It goes without saying that the best part about my job is working with children. They are the heart and soul of everything we do in our class. I teach your children on Wednesday afternoon, Thursday all day and Friday all day. If you need anything please see me at any time.
Your child can earn DoJo points for lots of things in class.
The children have chosen their own class rules and can earn DoJo points for
showing good behaviour, staying on task, speaking Welsh and many other good things. The children will make their own class charter so watch this space to see the rules that Class 3 make this year.

Children will have new spellings every week. They will have a weekly spelling test will be on Fridays.
Below are the spelling lists for the term.
In addition to the weekly spelling lists, pupils will need to know their high frequency words, common exception words and statutory words for year 3.
Use the lists below to learn these together at home.
Children will be given a school book to take home every Wednesday. Please ensure your children bring in their book bags. Enjoy reading at home with your child.

In year 3 we learn the x2, x5, x10, x3 and x4 tables.
To start with we will focus on our x10 tables.
Your child will earn stars for learning their tables.
Your child can earn a bronze star by saying their tables in order. E.g. 1 x 2 = 2, 2 x 2 = 4, 3 x 2 = 6
Your child can earn a silver star for saying the answer to a given table. E.g. 3 x 2 = ?, 7 x 2 = ?
Your child can earn a gold star for being able to say the sum when they are given the answer.
Each week, we will send out a Weekly Workout which will include our spellings, tables, reading and Welsh phrases for the week. You will also find blended learning tasks for anyone who is self-isolating and learning from home.
Logging into HWB will give your child access to everything they need for learning from home, Google classrooms, Outlook email and Just2Easy learning platform.
