We have two Year 3 classes - Miss Cowley and Miss Grant
Support Staff - Mrs Ward, Mrs Lawson, Mrs Swanson, Mrs Howe and Mrs Player
We hope that you had a great break. As the months continue to be cold, please can you ensure that your child has a coat.
Please can you make sure that your child has a water bottle in school everyday as it is difficult organising drinks for the children throughout the day. Could you also make sure that your child has their name on everything so that they are easy to find.
Year 3 Spellings
Spellings will be handed out on the first Monday of term. We will not be testing weekly but instead every 4 weeks. Spellings can also be found on the school website.
Please continue to read at home and question children on what they have read for comprehension skills.
Children will have PE on Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure children come to school in their Bitham Brook PE kit on these days.
When the children have PE they should continue to wear their Bitham Brook PE kit into school with the school jumper over the top (if weather conditions require a jumper). Please note the Bitham Brook PE kit is a plain white t-shirt and black shorts/leggings/tracksuit with trainers. Other sports clothing is not acceptable as it is important, that as a school, we have pride in our appearance. It is important that children do not attend school in casual clothing as we want to maintain the children's sense of education being important; pride in their appearance; and belonging to Bitham Brook.
