After what has been a very strange time for us all, we are really pleased to welcome our children back to school for a new and exciting year full of lots of learning and fun!

 

Important days to remember:

  • Indoor PE for 3/4E is on a Thursday.

  • Outdoor PE for both classes (3/4E and 3F) is on a Friday.

 

Please note that children now come to school in their PE kits on their PE days - thank you.

Weekly Homework

Please encourage your child to read at home at least 3 times a week. If your child reads 3 times a week, they will receive a merit. Remember, your child does not have to read their reading book, they can read a book from home or from the library.

Please encourage your child to go on Times Table Rock Stars regularly to practise their times tables. In year 3, we learn our 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Children should know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables from KS1.

 

Regular Dates

On Thursday mornings, we attend swimming lessons at Heanor Leisure Centre and on Wednesday afternoons throughout the year, we will be learning to play the ukulele with music teachers from the Schools Music Partnership.
