Spellings were uploaded to the children's Spelling Shed accounts on Friday and we ask they practice as much as possible in time for their test next Friday. We have carried out a short assessment to allocate spellings, however, groupings will continue to be monitored moving forward. The children will bring home a paper copy of their spellings at the back of their 10 Minute Write books (more information on that starting next week). Our preference is to use Spelling Shed to practice spellings. If you have any queries or need a reminder of logins, please email email@example.com
On Tuesday , the children will begin swimming lessons as part of the Year 3 P.E curriculum. Please come to school in normal school uniform. Each child will need a towel and swimming costume/trunks (no board shorts are permitted). Goggles/hairbrushes are optional and swimming hats/arm bands/floats will be provided. PLEASE can children with long hair tie it up in a bun/plaits, to help with putting on hats before and changing times after, their lesson.
It has been wonderful to get to know our new class this week and we are looking forward to working hard and enjoying our learning as we navigate our way through the first year of the juniors
Friday 8th September 2022
Today we spent some time talking and understanding a little more about the passing of Queen Elizabeth II. Year 3LP and Year 3VT watched a Newsround programme dedicated to the story and asked/answered questions we had afterwards.
Spellings have been uploaded to the children's Spelling Shed accounts today and we ask they practice as much as possible in time for their test next Friday. We have carried out a short assessment to allocate spellings, however, groupings will continue to be monitored moving forward. They will also be bringing home a spellings book with a copy of the spellings in to practice.
It has been wonderful to get to know our new class this week and we are looking forward to working hard and enjoying our learning as we navigate our way through the first year of the juniors! We have been impressed with how well they have adapted to the new Key Stage!
Enjoy a lovely weekend,

Wednesday 7th September
What a super settling in day our new Year 3s have had! We have been learning about our new routines, getting to know one another and looking at our expectations for the months ahead.
The biggest change to the children's routine today was their later lunch time. Some became hungry before lunch time so in an effort to hopefully combat this in the future, please send your child in with a healthy snack for morning break - we are unfortunately unable to provide fruit for all in the same manner as KS1.
If you have any questions moving forward, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Mrs Timson, Mrs Smith, Mrs Canham
