Couldn’t agree more! 👏 I’ve felt very grateful over the last few weeks. Knowing there was a team taking care of the ‘other’ stuff meant I got to focus all my attention on staff, pupils & families. https://t.co/AXARoWFnNR

As a frontline doctor in London - you really really need to take this seriously - it is bad - it is really bad - already - and it’s predicted to be worse by next weekend - too many people really don’t get it yet - stay indoors!! Seriously!

I saw an article on this over half-term (maybe yours) and I have now started this at my school! Teachers are grateful and I get to indulge my passion of reading aloud! We shared Pirates love underpants, which even ks2 laughed at and The Twits!

Very sad to hear about the passing of one of our Heroines, who died today aged 101. A NASA pioneer and gifted mathematician, she paved the way for women and people of colour to be given credibility in the scientific arena. https://t.co/aUf6dMMTCu

Year 3

Check out our class video from December 2019 here click on the link at the bottom of the page.

 

Welcome to Year 3, Valentina Class! Our teachers are Miss Hannah Zebrowski (mornings) & Mrs Sarah Beeton (afternoons). We are also supported by our Learning Assistant, Miss Gemma Birchall.

Homework

In Year 3 our homework is set weekly on a Friday and collected in the following Friday. Our homework consists of spellings (5 prepared words sent home weekly accompanied by a rule to explore), times tables (completing at least 20 games in ‘garage’ mode on Times Tables Rockstars), daily reading (recorded by an adult at home in the reading diary provided) and Topic Homework (at least one task completed by the end of term from the menu provided by the teachers).

Reading

Alongside homework we, as a school, expect all children to have daily opportunities to read with someone at home. Reading can include; books, newspapers, magazines, online reading, e-books, information books, adverts, menus, poems, song lyrics – the list is endless. The important thing is that your child reads daily and develops a pleasure in reading! 

All children will have been provided with a reading diary which they need to bring to school every day. Please could you record your child’s reading (as well as any additional comments) here. Halfway through the diary a guide is included to help adults to support children in their reading at home. Reading records will be monitored on a weekly basis. 

When your child has finished their reading book, please encourage them to remember to change it in school time or please feel free to help your child change their book at the end of the day. There are colour-coded books available on the bookshelves in the corridor area if they are reading from a coloured book band. Free readers are welcome to borrow other books from the class book corner or school Library.

PE

PE kits should be brought in every Monday and will be sent home to be washed after the last PE lesson of the week.

Indoor PE: Children will need shorts and a plain t-shirt in their house colour (no logos).  Gym and Dance is done in bare feet.  Children will need trainers or plimsolls for indoor games.

Outdoor PE: Children will need shorts and t-shirt, and a tracksuit or spare jumper for colder days.  Children will also need trainers.

Jewellery: A reminder that only stud earrings and wristwatches may be worn to school. Earrings must be removed or covered for PE. Children should not wear bracelets, this includes friendship bracelets and loom bands.
