Welcome back! I hope you all had a great Easter break and enjoyed the sunny weather. The children have settled back quickly into school life and we are looking forward to an exciting term ahead.
Staff in Year 3

Mrs Gow will be taking the class on Wednesday afternoons for Art.
Teaching Assistant (Monday-Friday mornings)- Mrs Dodd.
Our Topic this term is “Ancient Egypt” and we will be linking this with many areas of the curriculum, including literacy, history and geography.
Curriculum News, available on this web page shortly, will outline the topics we will be focusing on in each area of the curriculum. Thank you all so much for continuing to support your children at home with homework – especially reading and learning the times tables! It really makes a difference to their progress.
Home Reading Records -please remember to keep completing the Home Reading Record and changing your school reading book when you have finished it. Please continue to read with your child as much as possible and record a minimum of 4 times in the Home Reading Record book. The Reading Record book needs to be handed in on a Monday morning to be checked, and then it is returned to your child. If your child reads a minimum of 4 times for 4 weeks (these don't have to be consecutive weeks) they will be rewarded with a sticker.
Homework Diaries - please continue to make sure these are in school every day and signed once a week to show that your child has completed their homework. Homework Diaries need to be handed in on a Monday and will be checked for a signature.
Spellings - The spelling test will now be on a Monday morning. New spellings handed out on a Tuesday.
