Home Learning: Daily reading: The expectation is that your child reads with an adult 5 times a week for approximately 15minutes ago. Please sign their Reading Record every time they read to you and ensure it is in school with their reading book every day. This is essential for us to track their reading progress and know when they are ready to change their book. We will change books on a Tuesday and a Friday if they have been completed.

We will be sending home learning books home in a few weeks when the children have settled back into school, more details of this will follow.

PE Days: In Year 3 our day is Tuesday. Please send children to school IN their PE kit. They will remain in their kit all day and do NOT need to bring their uniform. PE kit consists of their house coloured T-shirt, black or dark blue shorts/ jogging bottoms and a plain black or dark blue sweatshirt (no hoods or drawstrings). Please do not send in items of clothing with large pictures or logos on. Whilst the weather stays nice PE will be spent outside so trainers rather than plimsolls would be preferable.

Snacks: Pupils are encouraged to bring a small healthy snack to school to eat at break time. Please could we remind all families that school policy is for snacks to be fresh fruit or vegetables, rather than biscuits.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any concerns, no matter how small, throughout the year.
