Dear Parents,

Welcome back! We hope you have had a good half term break.

This term our topic is Volcanoes. We are planning to make a volcano and the children will need to bring the following items into school as soon as possible please : Small plastic drinking bottle and a piece of strong cardboard (from a delivery box ideally, A4 size) for the base of the volcano.

We will be carrying on with violin lessons in school on Wednesdays and encourage the children to take their violin home and practise each week.

As last term we will have one indoor and one outdoor P.E. session a week. Girls cannot wear tights for indoor PE so please ensure they have a spare pair of socks, and all children will need sturdy trainers for outdoor sports.

We are still focussing on fast recall of times tables facts. Please can you help your child to practise their times tables regularly - these are printed inside their school diaries. Also printed in the Homework Diaries is a list of words which we will be covering in our spelling sessions.

Homework will be issued weekly using the GCP books, the page number will be written on the board for your child to copy into their diaries.

If you have any any queries or problems please do not hesitate to contact us either via e-mail or telephone to the office.

The Year 3 Team

Mrs J Surtell (Teacher) & Mrs M Leishman (Teaching Assistant)
