Year Three

Welcome to Year 3
 
Our class names are Jays, taught by Mrs Cooper, and Magpies, taught by Miss Ballmann.
 
Mrs Mullis is our Learning Support Assistant, who works between both classes. 
PE is now on a Tuesday and Thursday afternoon. We are trying to get out for a walk on Monday, Wednesday and Friday afternoons. Please make sure your child comes in PE kit on Tuesdays and Wednesdays, and that they have shoes that they can get in and out of themselves.
 
School lunches are no longer free, as we are now in KS2. To order meals, please access ParentPay. Any problems, please contact Mrs Dickenson in the office who is the expert!

Reading books: We will be sending reading books home from Monday. The expectation remains that they should read at least three times a week, and a signature and / or comment in their reading record. They will be changed once a week on a Friday. The children will also be assigned an online book via the Oxford Owl website (their logins are in the front of their reading records). 

School times: 8.45 - 3.10. Please drop your child off at the door by the climbing wall. In the afternoons, we will be waiting down by the double hall doors, by the blue canopy.
