Year 3 – Saint Cecilia

A warm welcome to St Cecilia. 

St. Cecilia is considered the patron saint of music. It is thought that she sang in her heart during her wedding, asking Jesus to be able to keep her special gift for him.

I am delighted to be teaching Year 3 this year and look forward to our learning journey. Alongside myself, we will have the fantastic support of Miss Hawthorn, Miss Cheshire and Miss Cund. 

Below you will find some important information about 3RH. During each half term, I will also be updating the class page with important curriculum information.

Reading: This is a really important part of your child's development and helps them across all curriculum areas. At St Matthew's, we love reading and encourage the children to read for pleasure at home at least twice a week. It is important to check your child’s understanding of the text by asking them questions about the text which they are reading. Alongside this reading for pleasure, we also take part in 2 x weekly reading lessons within class, where the children answer comprehension questions based on what they have read.

Maths: Being a confident mathematician is an important life skill and one way in which children can become more confident is to be fluent in their times tables. Children will practise their times tables weekly in class, however, any extra opportunity to practise is always encouraged! 

P.E: PE is a fundamental part of our curriculum and gives children the opportunity to learn new skills and work as part of a team outside the classroom environment. Children are to come in dressed in their P.E clothes on our P.E days which are usually Wednesday and Friday.

Thank you,

Miss Hawthorn
