Enjoy your Easter break - stay safe - children return Monday 19th April

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3! 


We have had a great start to the year in Year 3!  The children have been working extremely hard and making great progress - We are all so very proud of them!

As we now enter a new lockdown it is so important that we do not let this love for learning  slip.  All learning for you child will be delivered in two week blocks  and all of the work and supporting resources can be found in the home learning section of our school website.

It is vital that your child tries to complete the work set and we will be collecting these packs throughout the lockdown so we can support your child in the best possible way and plan future work based on their need.


We understand that these are difficult times and home learning is no easy task.  Please try to keep the experience positive for all - if you or your child are finding things difficult then please take a break.  This work is not set to cause tension or distress.


Calls home will be made on a regular basis - we are all excited to hear from the children.  We will use these calls to help with any work issues your child may be having and see if there is any support we can offer from the school to help you as a family in these testing times.


Please keep safe!

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.



Don't forget to bring your ukulele to school every Friday!
