Dear Parents,

I hope that you have all had a wonderful Christmas and I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy New Year! This term our timetable remains the same as Autumn term and the staff teaching your children are as follows:

• Mrs George- Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday (all day) and Thursday (morning only.)
• Miss Millburn (ICT) - Monday afternoon (half the class at a time for a 45 minute lesson.)
• Mrs Irving (Maths, English grammar, Science and RE) - Friday all day.
• Mr Dawson (PE coach) - Thursday afternoon.

PE kit will be required each Thursday when children will be coached by our PE coach, Mr Dawson- 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- 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, English and Maths using Education City and MyMaths or be of a research nature. Homework will start in the second week of term on Monday 13th January.

This June will see us returning to Windermere for our Year 3 residential trip for 3days/2nights. Please see the Year 3 website page ‘Go wild in Windermere 2020’ for more information including cost and itinerary. I have also left this year’s page on the website page so that you can see what we got up to! The trip itinerary will remain exactly the same for 2020.

Please do not hesitate to contact me by email if you have any queries or concerns about your child at - I do check this email frequently during the day and will get back to you as quickly as possible! 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
