Thank you for your support last term, for the good wishes and Christmas charity donations for cancer - a very worthy cause. Mrs. Drinkwater, Mrs. Bundy and Miss Haynes had a fabulous term and thoroughly enjoyed teaching your children; they really were delightful!
This term, we will continue to set weekly spelling homework and test on a Friday. The children will record their scores in their home liaison book as usual. Support at home with spellings and reading is vital and we will continue to monitor the children's reading and chat to the about it and their book choices.
In class we will be reading the book Secrets of a Sun King by Emma King and writing a diary to link in with our topic about Ancient Egypt. We will also be reading Howard and the Mummy to complement this book and discover more about Egypt but also use it as a key to discuss rewards of perseverance.
PE this term will be on a Thursday afternoon with Mrs. Lavelle and we will be swimming on a Monday afternoon too.
We are looking forward to this term and working with you all. Thank you for making this a pleasure.

A very warm welcome to Class 3
Mrs Drinkwater, Mrs Bundy and Miss Haynes are excited to be teaching in Class 3 this term. Our history topic is the Stone Age to the Bronze Age. We will be covering key questions and learning about what life was like in the Stone Age and how it changed over the years.
We have high expectations and appreciate home support very much, especially help with reading and spellings. It is essential that you listen to your child read and take an interest in what they are reading. We are focusing in reading fluency this term making sure the children read accurately, with good expression and at a reasonable pace. Spellings will be set and tested on a Friday as a general rule. PE will be on a Thursday afternoon with Mrs Lavelle.
We are looking forward to working with you all and watching the children progress!
