Welcome back after the summer break, we hope you all had an enjoyable summer holiday! Year 3 is a very exciting year and there are many enjoyable activities to look forward to both in and out of school. We are sure that you and your child are looking forward to the fun yet challenging year that lies ahead, we certainly are.
This year we will be offering parents information sessions on the 25th September at either 9 am or 5pm. These are designed to help inform you a little more about what is happening this year and how you can support your child. Your involvement and interest in your child’s education is most welcome and encouraged.
The children have already made a great start to swimming lessons on Thursdays. They need to bring a swimming costume or trunks, a towel and a swimming hat. Every child has to wear a swimming hat. If you need to, you can send £5 and we can buy one from the baths before the lesson. From next week, children can wear goggles, if we have written permission from parents; a note in your child’s diary is fine. Please remember to send your child in with a coat, even if it looks fine in the morning, it can change by lunch time.
Snack is not provided by school in the juniors, but you can send in a piece of fruit or a healthy snack bar for your child to eat at break time. We are a healthy school and therefore no chocolate or chocolate coated snacks are permitted. Please remember that we are a nut free school and so no food that the children bring into school should contains nuts (snack or packed lunch boxes).
Homework will be given out on a Monday every week apart from the week before a holiday. Maths you will find online on activelearning.co.uk. Times tables practise will be given weekly. Spellings will also be given on a sheet for the half term and these will be tested on Thursday.
Across the year the children will be given the opportunity to complete some Home
Learning Projects. More information about these will be given at a later date.
If your child is taking part in the Sacramental Programme this year, please check the parish website for information throughout the year or pick up a newsletter at mass. This is an important and wonderful part of Year 3 and something that we hope many of the children will take part in.
Punctuality and attendance is of great importance and therefore please ensure your child is on time for school every day as lateness does disrupt learning opportunities. Please ensure your child is in school ready to start lessons by 8.55am.
If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child please feel free to approach us at the end of the day. If neither of us are available, or this is not convenient for you, then please make an appointment via the school office.
We look forward to working with both you, and your child, and hope between us we can make it a happy and enjoyable year.
Mrs C Hesford, Mrs K Fawcett and Mrs B Hubble.
