A message for the new school year from Miss Shepherd…

You should now have received information about your new class for the next academic year. I am looking forward to welcoming everyone back into school in September. It has been an unusual end to the current year, but as a school we can’t wait to have everyone back together.

Class 3 children have their own peg for coats and bags located outside of the classroom.  In class they will either have a morning activity to complete or will read their own reading book independently. Lunch boxes and water bottles should be put in the labelled boxes at the back of the classroom and snacks can be placed on their own desks.

We will be using a creative thematic approach to our learning, linking together our knowledge and understanding with a variety of writing opportunities and immersion in exciting and interesting reading material. The topic for the Autumn term is Empires and Kingdoms. This year Class 3 and 4 will be undertaking the same topic titles. Through this topic we will learn about the Roman Empire, develop our geographical skills and study the wok of an artist.

To help brighten up our new classroom I would like to create a display which showcases our new Class 3 team. So on this page you will find an A5 image of an ice-cream sundae, which I would like you to complete with your name and add details about things that you enjoy.  This Here's the scoop activity will enable me to find out more about you and create a bright, inviting display in the classroom . So please make it as colourful as you can! ( I have included an example below.) I look forward to receiving your wonderful creations. Once you have completed your sundae, please either drop it into the school via the letterbox, or scan it and upload onto the VLE by Friday 10th July. 

In the meantime, have a wonderful summer holiday. If you would like to complete an end of year/summer reflection to support the transition from this year to the next I have included a few templates below. Feel free to use this and send via the vle (this is optional). Happy holidays!

Advice for Parents

You might be wondering how you can help your child at home with the work that we do in school. There are a number of ways that you can support with their reading, writing and maths. We have attached a grammar glossary, times table support (including the golden 50) and reading questions to ask your child when they're reading to you at home.
