Staff: Mr McDade and Mrs Tremarco
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break! I am delighted with the progress you all have made over the first term of our school year. We have lots of amazing activities and learning to do and I am extremely excited to get started in 2020!
*Reminder: Residential to Hothersall Lodge on 30th of March
Year 3 will continue to have swimming sessions every Tuesday. All children will require a swimming kit (boys shorts must be above knee height), towel and swimming caps. Goggles can be worn, although the children are encouraged to try to swim without these. Stud earrings must be removed.
Year Three is a vitally important year in school, as this is the year when children begin to lay the foundations for their future learning in KS2. Being in school every day ensures your child has a strong foundation on which to excel as they progress through Belle Vale.
Reading is a a major focus for Year 3 this year, both inside school and outside of it. Home reading is expected to be done by all children every night, and we ask that their reading diaries are signed and returned to school the following day so that we can confirm that the children are reading outside of the classroom.
Homework is due in every Wednesday unless otherwise stated. It is critically important that you help your children to complete their homework as independently as possible. Also it would really benefit Year 3 pupils if you would test their specific times tables and spellings daily.
Fruit is on sale every morning on the KS2 yard at 20p per fruit.
School dinners are priced at £2.00 per day, or £10.00 for a full week.
Our P.E days are Monday and Tuesday with Miss Lee. All children are expected to have a correct P.E kit in school on these days. Their P.E kits must consist of a plain white t-shirt, navy shorts and black pumps. PE kits are available to purchase at the Main Office.
Finally, we are very lucky to have Mrs Tremarco working alongside us throughout this year and together we are fully committed to driving our high expectations and maintaining our children's enjoyment and enthusiasm in learning!
I am always available to speak to parents/carers briefly in the morning. However, if a longer discussion is needed, a meeting can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.
