Thank you for all the support during our first week of school closure. Please read our 'Letter to parents - Easter holidays' download. Also, in the Download Section, you will find a list of interesting and useful weblinks to keep things going over Easter and the coming weeks - look for: Online links and resources
Take care of each other and happy holidays!
Hopefully, you will have seen the activities, links, resources and ideas in our 'Home Learning Update' in the Downloads Section. We will update this regularly to keep our children learning and having fun at home. We hope that you will access as much of it as you can whilst enjoying family fun in the sun (hopefully), as we edge towards Summer and the better weather. Importantly, there are ideas for fitness and wellbeing in addition to academic and creative work. There are numerous ideas and learning platforms out there on the internet, too - so plenty to keep little minds and bodies busy and challenged!

Being in Year 3 is an exciting place to be, as a whole new part of the school opens up to the children. It is here that they learn to become even more responsible and organised as they become Juniors.
Ms Mackenzie, Mr Smith and the TA team welcome you to Year 3 and the first year of the Juniors!
There are lots of exciting opportunities to learn, both inside and outside of the classroom. During English lessons, the children will study a variety of stories and poems including Poems to Perform and Myths and Legends. The children develop their skills in reading, spelling, grammar and punctuation and they find new ways to express themselves through activities using drama, music and creative writing. In Maths, they consolidate and extend their practical, mental and written skills in addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. They learn to solve a range of word problems as they use and apply their maths in their everyday lives. Topic work leads the children on a cross-curricular learning journey around the world and through Rainforests and back in time to People of the Past! Keep watching the website and letters home for updates on forthcoming exciting trips and visits! We get to keep fit and go for swimming lessons on a Tuesday for the first term, too - Hurrah! 🏊
We love when our parents get involved! Our Chatterday activities provide a range of carefully selected ideas and activities to stimulate discussions, research, independent study and fun at home. Importantly, there are some essentials for home learning: Our children are actively encouraged to read every night at home and practise spellings and times tables on a regular basis throughout the week. Spellings are given on a Monday and are expected to be practised during the week, with a spelling test each Friday. We look forward to welcoming parents into the classroom for topic-related activities, class assemblies, music/drama performances and for parents'/open/curriculum evenings too. Keep an eye on the calendar and letters home for updates on all of these and our exciting range of trips and visits too!
