Year 3 Summer Term 2017 Newsletter

Dear Parents,

I hope that you have all had a fabulous Easter holiday and that your children are eager to get back to the classroom! Hopefully we will be able to get out and about around school in the lovely weather that summer term brings with it (we can at least be hopeful!)

Please remember that this term we will still be having football coaching on a Monday morning with Stuart Green and we will also be going to the Sports Centre at Whitehaven for gymnastics coaching on a Monday afternoon (6 sessions in total). Whilst children are doing both football and gymnastics on a Monday, they should come to school already dressed in their PE kit including: shorts, t shirt, tracksuit and trainers. Children do not need to bring school uniform to change into after PE. PE kit will also be required for the rest of the week so please make sure that your child brings his/her kit back in on Tuesday. Swimming has now finished in Year 3 and will not start again until spring term in Year 4.

Hopefully the sun is going to shine down on us this term so that we can get out on the field at playtimes and for PE; please ensure that your child has sun cream and a hat on these sunny days. It is a good idea to send your child with a bottle of sun cream to keep in their locker throughout the term; please note that staff are not permitted to apply sun cream but will supervise whilst children apply their own.

I am sure that the children will be very excited about our residential trip beginning on Wednesday 10th May. Please make sure that your child has got all the kit listed on the letter sent out last term. This letter can also be found on the Year 3 webpage(Go wild in Windermere) on the School website.

Homework will still be set each Monday (this will be displayed on the Year 3 page on the school website under the heading ‘Homework- Summer 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, English and Maths using Education City and Mathletics 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. 

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 ( 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
