Autumn Term 2017 Newsletter

Year 3- Autumn Term 2017

Dear Parents,

I hope that you have all had an enjoyable and relaxing summer holiday! I am very much looking forward to working with your children throughout this year and have many exciting activities planned to keep them all busy and, of course, working hard!

This year PE kit will be required on Mondays (football), Tuesdays and Thursdays- please ensure that your child has kit suitable for both indoor and outdoor PE on these days as we will try to go outside until the weather prevents us! Kit required is as follows: navy shorts, white t shirt, tracksuit bottoms/top and trainers. It is a good idea for your child to bring PE kit in on a Monday and leave it in their locker until the end of the week when it can then be taken home for washing. Please ensure that all uniform and PE kit is named- there was an awful lot of lost property in class last year and it is impossible to re-unite items of clothing with children when there is no name!

Homework will be set each Monday (this will be displayed on the Year 3 page on the school website under the heading ‘Homework- Autumn 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 or 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. Homework will start in the second week of term on Monday 11th September.

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
