The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C. S. Lewis
This will be our whole class guided reading book for this term. We have a few copies in school but if you would like to be purchase one for your child to use we would be extremely grateful. This is of course, entirely volutary. There have been some questions about which version to buy - there is no specific version that they need to have but a lot of children have been bringing in this one, if it helps!
Happy New Year!

Welcome back to school. We hope you've all had a good rest and are refreshed and ready for the new year. Our topic this term is the Rainforest and we have an exciting curriculum planned to support this. Here is the important information that you need to know for the January term:
PE: PE will be on a Wednesday and Friday. Children will need to come into school in their PE kit to eliminate any need for changing in school. On a Wednesday the lesson will be outside with Mr. Sykes so please make sure they will have extra layers to keep warm. Friday's PE lesson will be dance with Mrs. Pinto in the hall. Please make sure your child can remove their own earrings before PE or alternatively, we can cover them with tape.
Outdoor shoes: As the weather gets even wetter the children will need a pair of outdoor shoes (wellies or old trainers) to wear on the playground area. Mud is a massive problem in the classroom at this time of year and if children don't have a pair of outdoor shoes the areas that they use in the playground area will have to be restricted. Your help is, as always, very much appreciated (especially by the cleaners!)
Spellings: Spelling tests will continue to be held every Thursday. Please see the new list below for your child's weekly spellings.
Homework: Homework days have changed this term. Homework will be handed out on a Wednesday and is expected back on the following Monday. As we did last year, there will be a piece of creative homework (see grid below) and Maths to support what the children are learning in the classroom.
Whole Class Reading: This term we are excited to read 'The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe' by C. S. Lewis. We have a small number of copies in school but if you would like your child to have their own copy to read daily then we would really appreciate your support in buying one. This is, of course, entirely voluntary. They will be able to bring it home at the end of term to add to their own bookshelf.
Home Learning: If your child is having to self isolate for Covid reasons we have uploaded some home learning booklets (below) for you to use during this period of time. There are year 3 Maths and English booklets which include useful things for your child to revise while they are at home.
If you have any questions then please do ask.
With best wishes,
Sally Pietropinto and Kim Wells
