Welcome to Year 3
Barnacles - Mr Edwards
Starfish - Miss Bridgman
Seahorses - Miss Torres
Welcome back to school everyone! It is so lovely to see all the children again and we have already been impressed by their politeness and enthusiasm. This term, our topic will be Ancient Egypt. However, we begin the term by sharing our thoughts and feelings about the past few months. We will join the rest of the school in sharing the book 'Here We Are' by Oliver Jeffers that encourages us to reflect on what a diverse and wonderful world we live in.
PE - Children should wear their PE kits to school on days when they have a lesson. As the weather gets colder, please ensure children have jumpers, jogging bottoms and gloves so they are comfortable being outside.
Reading - Encouraging a love of reading is the single most important contribution you can make to your child's educational development at this stage. We ask that you and your child read four times each week and note this on Seesaw. Entries will be checked weekly by the class teacher. We love to hear what books you are reading but you can also tell us about comics, websites and anything else that has caught your eye! Children will be offered a new book to take home each Wednesday. We ask that finished books are returned to school by the following Monday so they can be quarantined in time to be shared again.
Maths - Tasks that consolidate topics covered in class will be set regularly on Mathletics. Each child has a personal log-in and password which which they will bring home. Please speak to your class teacher if your child has trouble logging on as regular tasks will be set for homework.
