FOR MORE INFORMATION ON ANY SUBJECT AREA POP INTO SCHOOL TO SPEAK TO MR RISDALE

Dear Parents/ Guardians,

I hope you all had a fantastic Easter break.

Team

  Mr Risdale will be back in class this term and supported by Mrs Macallam , Mrs Nyarko and Miss Arthur.

 Miss Young will be with us until the end of term 5 as she completes the final part of her teaching placement.

PE/Swimming/Forest School

Swimming will take place every Thursday afternoon until the end of the academic year. We will also be resuming Forest School again this term and this will take place every Monday. Kits for both of these sessions can be brought in and taken home on the day.

Parental involvement

We will be holding a parent DT morning during the weeks 21/5 and 25/6. I will let you know more details nearer the time. These have previously been a great success.

Creative curriculum

We will also have a new homework project sent out this week. The children can be as creative as they like and all projects are valued. This project has an art focus to begin our learning on ‘Mighty Mountains’.  We will also visit Bristol Museum in the second week back to make up for our snow cancellation last term.

  General

Books will be changed every Monday by Mrs Macallam. I will also aim to assess every child’s reading age and scheme in the first two weeks back.

Please don’t hesitate to make an appointment to see me if you have any issues you would like to discuss.

Mr Risdale and the Year 3 team
