“Dream beautiful dreams, then work hard to make those dreams come true”

Dear Parents / Annwyl Rhieni,

Welcome to Year 3!
Please find below some useful information that you will need:

PE Arrangements
P.E days for our class are on a Friday (outdoor) and Monday (indoor). Please ensure that appropriate P.E. kit is worn/brought to school on these days (navy jogging bottoms, white t-shirt and trainers).

Homework
Maths homework will be allocated to the children’s Active Learn account on a Friday. Mental maths books will be sent home weekly. Children will need to complete one test per week. Please ensure mental maths books are brought back into school on a Friday. Spelling is also distributed on a Friday and a test is on the following Friday.

Snack
Please ensure that your child has a healthy snack and drink for morning snack time.

Water Bottles
We encourage children to bring water into class. Please ensure that water bottles are labelled with their name and is taken home on a daily basis to be cleaned.

The School Day
Children will be expected to line up in the junior yard before 8.50 a.m. and be collected from the infant yard at 3.20 p.m.

Reading
Your child will need to bring their book bag/reading books to school each day. We encourage independent reading every day, however we do aim to listen to each child read twice a week.

Class Dojo
Remember, I will be using class Dojo to keep you in the loop this year! I’ll share photos from class, important updates and wonderful moments. If you haven’t already done so, please sign up to class Dojo using the parent code you were given during the transition meeting.

Curriculum Information- Big Questions.

Our aim is that pupil voice, which is at the core of our curriculum, will completely motivate and excite pupils to become independent learners.

We are very excited about exploring our big questions and I’m sure your children will share in our enthusiasm.

Autumn Term: What was life like in Ancient Egypt?

Spring Term: How does light and sound affect our everyday lives?

Summer Term: Why do Rainforests matter?

Finally,

I look forward to a happy, fun and productive year with you and your children. Should you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thank you for your continued support,

Miss Jones
