Dear all,

Firstly, a massive thank you for all your help and support in cycle 1. The children have made a fantastic start to Year 3 and I am excited to see what this cycle will bring. As you may know we have some exciting events coming up including; a trip to The Lowry, Christmas fair, a trip to the pantomime and not forgetting our pantomime performance.

Our PE lessons are on Monday and Wednesday afternoons. Children must have their full PE kits in school to participate in the lesson therefore, I encourage children to bring in their PE at the start of the new half term and leave it in school until the holidays when the teachers will remind children to take it home to be washed. Please can I remind parents that PE should consist of black shorts and a white t-shirt with black pumps.

Homework and spellings will continue to be sent out on a Friday and should be completed and returned by the following Wednesday. If children do not complete their homework or if they need support to complete their homework they can come to homework club on a Thursday lunchtime. Can all parents / careers please ensure they read with the child every night and sign the reading record which should be brought to school with their reading book daily.

If you have any questions please come and ask.

Mrs Thompson
