Year 3

Goodbye Year 3! 


The end of term is fast approaching and we want to take the time to thank both the children and the parents for making this year such a success!  Even in the midst of a global pandemic we have all worked together to ensure that our children continued to both learn and grow.  From the children adapting to home learning and you as parents and carers supporting this, we have watched the children blossom.  We know that it hasn't been easy but everybody pulled together and here we now are, almost ready to say goodbye.


It has been a wonderful year with plenty of memories!  We now look at the children and do not recognise them as the children that first walked into our classroom way back in September.  They have worked their socks off this year and have made us so, so proud as every time we challenged them they never gave up and continued to push themselves even further!!  


While we may not of had the whole year in school, lockdown taught us new ways of learning and built resilience in us all.  As their teachers, we feel a little cheated that we missed out on some classroom learning but we know just how hard these children have worked and know they are ready to move on to a new adventure in year 4 - even if we are not yet quite ready to let them go!


It has been an absolute pleasure to of worked with your children this year and we hope that they have enjoyed their time in Year 3 just as much as we have enjoyed having them.


We will miss you all!

Regular reading at home is a key component to learning. Children will be given a reading book to take home at the start of the half term. When they read with an adult, they are expected to record this in their reading journal. 

Please ensure you comment and sign reading record books. If your child is struggling with their book or do not enjoy it after attempts at reading it then let us know.
