Year 3 - Peacock and Falcon

WELCOME TO PEACOCK AND FALCON CLASS PAGE!

 

Hello all,

 

Welcome back to a new academic school year! We hope you all had a wonder summer break and are feeling refreshed and ready to become part of KS2! 

 

School Day for Year 3:

Our school day begins at 8:45am, this is when the KS2 gates will be open. Children should come onto the playground where they can then go straight into class. The day ends at 3.15pm where children will be collected from their classroom. Parents may come onto the school playground but we ask that you drop off and leave rather than hang about. This is to continue to support our COVID measures and we will review this as the year goes on.

 

On PE days, children should continue to come to school dressed in kit. For Year 3, PE days are Wednesdays.

 

Our main platform for communication with parents continues to be Class Dojo so do use this to post messages to your child's teacher. You can also continue to upload photos of your child's work through their Dojo portfolio. We all love seeing what the children are up to at home & photos are a great tool for evidencing homework so please do keep using! Any issues connecting or accessing these platforms, do let your child's teacher know. We also welcome any feedback as we look to improve our systems so please do get in touch. 

 

No school equipment is needed from home other than their bookbag and water bottle. Please can children not bring in pencil cases, toys, cards etc to school, this avoids any upset of things being lost or broken. Could children also have an outdoor coat and wellies in school at all times. 

 

Our place and time focus this half term is 'Ancient Egypt'. This will be supported in our CLL (communication, language and literacy) work too. You might have already heard of children discussing mummifying tomatoes and making pyramid cakes! This was the children's introduction to the topic and hopefully getting them excited to learn all things Egyptians! 

 

PSHE
This half term's Jigsaw puzzle piece is 'Being Me in My World'. 
This is all about the children within their school community. We will be looking at our right to learn, how we feel, how we make others feel and how we make others feel welcome.
 

As always, if there are any questions, please do not hesitate in coming to ask us :)

Kind regards,

Miss Shaw and Miss Bentley :)
