Welcome to Woodpecker Class!
The children have settled into Key Stage 2 extremely well and seem to be enjoying their learning in Year 3, along with some of the perks that come with being in Key Stage 2!
The children will bring home their Home Learning books each Friday. Please encourage your child to complete one piece of homework each week. They need to hand their homework in on a Thursday and I will hand it back to them the next day. The home learning tasks are in the front of their books, and are available to look at on our class page. It is really important for children to also have the opportunity to read at home, even if it is just for 10 minutes. Reading little and often can really help with all of their school work!
We are encouraging the children to bring a water bottle into school as they do get thirsty throughout the day and drinking little and often can aid their concentration. We also don’t want to disturb KS1 and that is where the water fountain is.
The children will need their PE kits for PE with Onside on a Wednesday afternoon and they will need their swimming kit on a Friday.
Children need to bring a coat into school, especially on a Friday when we have been swimming.
If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to speak to me at the end of the school day.
My Online Community
In our online safety lessons this half term, Year Three focused on the functions of passwords and identified strategies for creating and protecting secure passwords. They also demonstrated an understanding of how people can connect on the Internet by drawing a map of their online community.
Please take a look at the Family Tip sheets and Activity sheets that support the lessons covered in school.
