Next Graphite Class Assembly - Thursday 26th April 2018
Next Ruby Class Assembly - Thursday 14th June 2018
Reminder: Swimming is on Monday afternoons. Please see letter below... Swimming hats are no longer provided so children will need to bring their own if required.
We're looking forward to all the exciting learning that will be taking place in Ruby and Graphite Class during our last term in Year 3!
As the weather is hopefully going to continue to be warm this term, please remember to bring a water bottle to school. Our brains rely on proper hydration to keep them functioning properly.
We had a fantastic time learning about acids and alkalines at the Royal Institute of Science. Each child got the opportunity to make a bath bomb and a lip balm.

PE - Both classes will have PE on Tuesdays. Graphite Class also have PE on Mondays and Ruby Class on Wednesdays. Please ensure that your child brings appropriate clothing for these sessions (white, plain t-shirt, dark jogging bottoms or shorts, and sweatshirt) or they will not take part, which will mean missing a vital part of the curriculum. A letter needs to be written if a child is unable to participate in PE.
Homework - Children will be given a homework task each Friday based on the week’s learning. This will be due in every Wednesday. They will be marked and returned for Friday.
Spelling - They will also be given weekly spelling lists about a spelling rule and spelling tests will be on a Friday morning.
Reading - Children are also encouraged to read for at least 15 minutes every evening. Reading books are changed on Friday. Reading Records must be handed in with the Reading book so that we are able to keep a track of books which have been handed out and returned.
Water - Please remember it is important that your child brings water (not juice please) that they can drink during lessons, also this is one way to ensure that their brains are working to their full potential. Please make sure these are clearly labelled with their name.
