Spring 2018 Newsletter

Dear Parents,

I hope that you have all had a fabulous Christmas holiday and that your children are eager to get back to the classroom!

The weekly routine remains almost the same this term in Year 3 with one exception. On Tuesday afternoons we will now be going swimming at St Bees School. If you haven't already returned your form regarding your child's swimming ability, please return it tomorrow. Children will need a towel, swimming trunks/costume and, if necessary, a verruca sock; all items must be named and brought to school in a suitable bag to carry down to the pool. Children will also require trainers on a Tuesday afternoon to wear in the school gym for PE activities before or after their swimming session. Swimming starts next week on Tuesday 9th January. PE kit will also be required on Thursdays- please ensure that your child has kit suitable for both indoor and outdoor PE on these days.

Homework will still be set each Monday (this will be displayed on the Year 3 page on the school website under the heading ‘Homework- Spring term’) and will be due to be completed by the following Monday- activities each evening should take no more than 20 minutes. The homework will reinforce work done in class during the week and will include: spellings, reading, writing, English and Maths (using Education City and MyMaths) or be of a research nature. Hard copies of the homework will be available for children who would prefer or do not have internet access. If your child does not have internet access, homework requiring internet can be completed at school during the lunchtime homework club. Homework will start next week on Monday 8th January.

Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any concerns about your child, either via the office or by email which I do check each day (sgeorge@stbeesvillage.cumbria.sch.uk). Finally, please do keep checking the Year 3 page on the school website which I will update on a regular basis- you will find information about what is going on in class as well as lots of photographs of your little darlings!

Yours sincerely,

Sarah George
