Summer Term 2019 News

Dear Parents,

Welcome back to school! I hope you all had a wonderful Easter and a good rest.

This term is quite a busy one for Year 3. We are beginning to look at Fractions in Maths and we are busy writing gruesome descriptions of giants in English. Thank you to everyone that read The BFG over the holidays, I’m sure you have learnt some funny adjectives from the BFG himself. Romans in Britain is our new topic in History. There is so much we could talk about so this will be a whistle-stop tour but if your child has any books they would like to share on the topic, please bring them in. On Friday 17th May we will have a Roman show and tell so any artefacts, books etc. should come in then.

It’s not long now till the residential trip to the Gordon Brown Centre (8th-10th May 2019). Pupil agreement forms were due in on Wednesday 24th April and we had a residential meeting this afternoon. Any further questions about the trip or queries regarding payment please speak to Mrs Drew in the office or contact me directly. I am happy to help with any questions, concerns or worries.

There have been a few changes to the Year 3 timetable this half term. P.E. is now on Wednesdays (CM Sports Athletics) and Thursdays (Cricket). Year 3 and I would be very grateful for any parents to come in and listen to children read on Monday or Tuesday afternoons.

After May half term we have a trip to the Hindu Temple at Neasden as part of our Religious Education curriculum. I already have some interest for parent helpers on this trip, but a couple more helpers would be wonderful. The trip is on 6th June 2019.

Homework will still be given on a Wednesday and needs to come in completed on a Monday. We will continue to have out Time Tables Superhero tables test and spelling test on a Friday.

Now your child is in their final term of Year 3, please ensure they start to record their own reading at home in their reading record.  This will help the children to develop an independence that will help them in Year 4 and beyond.  We still expect them to read five times each week, but this only needs to be signed once each week by an adult. 

Have a wonderful weekend.
