Hello, the holidays are simply rushing by... as is the snow outside my window! I hope you are all having a nice rest. All too soon we will be back to school for another exciting half term. Until then...

Tata for now. smiley

 

Just a reminder...

Homework is going out on a weekly basis. It is sent out on Monday and is due back by Friday. Please encourage your child to complete their homework as it reinforces the learning we are doing in class. Please could we also ask that you read on a regular basis with your child and sign and return their Home-School Reading Record.

Unfortunately, (a bit of a moan here, sorry folks) not as many children as I would like are completing their homework or home reading. Remember another old saying - "practice makes perfect". If there are ever any aspects of the tasks you are not sure of please come in and see us. The work which our children do today is considerably more detailed than I can ever remember it being when I was their age. I have had to learn lots of new terms and jargon myself over the last two or three years!

 

Could parents also help their children to learn the times tables facts. By the end of Year 3 it is expected that children will know and be able to recall facts for the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables - a big ask but not an impossibility! 

 

PLEASE HAVE A LOOK IN THE WEBSITE SECTION - I HAVE ADDED HISTORY AND MATHS GAMES FOR YOU TO HAVE A GO AT!

 

Should you ever need to see Miss Hamilton or Miss Heartfield please do not hesitate to come into school at the end of the day or ring to arrange an appointment. I think that's all for now... Ta ta smiley
