The children had a great day dressing as their favourite book character for World Book Day. The all took part in a book swap reading activity , which involved the children bringing their favourite book to school and swapping it with their friend to read.

The children were absolutely amazing in their nativity and they should all be very proud of themselves. They rehearsed hard and the costumes looked fantastic. We also raised £97 for our class fund!

Please make sure your child is reading at least three times a week with you at home. Reading books will be changed on a Monday, so the children will have a fresh book for the week ahead.
Dear Parents, Carers and Children,
Welcome to Clumber Class, I hope you are looking forward to the next academic year. My name is Miss Earle and I am the class teacher for Year 3. We will also have Miss Halpin and Mrs Green working with us to support the children during the week.
We will be covering a range of exciting and interesting topics this year. Our first topic will be Myths and Legends where we will learn about the legend of Robin Hood and the myth Pandora’s Box.
As well as Myths and Legends, we will be learning about Our Wonderful World, the Stone Age, Nature, Volcanoes and the Romans over the academic year. Every topic will have a learning overview that will be shared with parents and carers.
Clumber class PE days will be on Thursday and Friday. Please ensure that children have the appropriate clothing and footwear because some of our lessons will be outdoors. It is recommended that children have their PE kit in school all week.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and collected on a Wednesday. The homework will be based on what we have been learning that week or researching the next topic. Spellings will also be given out on a Wednesday and the children will be tested on these the following Wednesday.
Children are expected to read at least three times a week and this should be recorded in their reading diary. Their books will be changed on a Monday and stickers will be given to the children who have read the required amount. Once six stamps have been collected, they will receive a prize and move onto the next bookmark.
In Clumber Class, the children will be running a healthy tuck shop. A drink and a snack will cost 50p or if you want to buy an item separately, they will cost 30p.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you or your child has any issues or concerns in the next year.
Miss K. Earle
