Welcome to Class 3

Dear Parents,

 

Welcome back and into Class 3, I hope you all enjoyed a great summer holiday.

Reading will continue to be a priority this year. We have an allocated slot in the timetable for reading so please could your child bring their reading book and reading record everyday. As they are reaching ‘juniors’ they will become more responsible for changing their own books. All children will be given a ‘Times Table’ book to practice at home and they will have a test every Monday. For those children who are already secure with their times tables, the Monday test will consist of 2 step multiplication and division problems.

The topic for this term is ‘The Victorians – Working Children’! This looks to be a very interesting topic so if you have any thing at home on Victorian Britain please bring it in!

Class 3 will once again be involved in swimming lessons this year. However, swimming will  take place in the spring/summer term, so more information will follow later in the year.

There are a few faces that appear in Class 3 throughout the week. Mrs Davies has responsibility for Art and Design technology, whilst Mrs Cooke and Mrs Wood teach RE and French on a Friday afternoon. Mrs Cooke will be teaching the year 2s ‘Spelling and Grammar’ for a short session every morning, whilst I teach the year 3s. Miss Messenger is also continuing her role as volunteer Teaching Assistant a few days a week. This year we also welcome Mrs Smith and Mrs Wilde who will continue their fantastic work with the year 3 children.

PE will be taught on a Wednesday, however, please could all children have their PE kits in school everyday with long hair tied back and earrings taken out.

Year 2 children will continue to get a free snack for morning break, unfortunately from year 3, (Key Stage 2) parents are asked to provide a morning break time snack (a piece of fruit or a breakfast bar).

If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to pop in at the end of the school day. I am looking forward to working with you all over the coming year.

Kind Regards,

Chris Ford
