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 working with us this year.
We will be covering a range of exciting and interesting topics this year. Our first topic will be the Legend of Robin Hood where we will learn about legends, Robin Hood and Sherwood Forest.
As well as Legends, we will be learning about Chocolate, Disney Imagineers, the Stone Age, Volcanoes and the Rotten Romans over the academic year. Every topic will have a learning overview that will be shared with parents and carers.
For the first couple of weeks reading books will not be given out to the children, as this will allow staff time to prepare reading books and diaries. Books will be changed weekly and returned books will be quarantined for 72 hours before given to another child. Please do not return any reading books that you have at home to school until you are asked to do so.
Homework and Spellings
Similar to reading books, homework and spelling books will be introduced later on in the first autumn term. Homework will be given out to the children on a Friday and the hand in date will be the following Wednesday. Homework will be based on work that the children have been doing in class. We will always include information about the children’s Big Write task on the homework letter so they are able to prepare at home. Spelling tests will take place on a Friday and children are encouraged to practise their spellings throughout the week at home to prepare.
Clumber classes PE day will be on a Thursday with Tony. You should come to school wearing the appropriate sports clothing for P.E on this day. You do not need to bring your uniform.
Please can I ask for pencil cases to be left at home for this next academic year so that this limits any risk of belongings being lost or damaged. All equipment needed will be provided by school.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you or your child has any issues or concerns in the next year.
Miss K. Earle.
