Welcome to Yellow class - Year 3
Hello everyone and welcome back! I hope you all had a great christmas holidays and a happy new year. We are all excited to head back to school and continue our fabulous learning journey in year 3.
Remember that if you have to isolate and you are well, you will find your work on our joint remote learning page. Then you can email it to me.
Please read the information below to find out what you will be learning over the next term and to take note of some important information.
Start and finish times: Yellow class doors open at 8.45-8.50am ready for registration at 9.00am. The school day ends at 3.30pm. Please enter and exit through the junior entrance.
PE: PE days are Tuesday and Thursday, please wear your PE kit on these days. Remember, we have a PE uniform and children must wear blue polo shirts, black joggers, leggings or shorts, and a black jumper. Children also need black or white trainers, not football trainers with any type of stud as these are dangerous and can mark the floor.
Please make sure reading books and diaries are brought into school daily.
Ensure all clothing is labelled.
Remember to bring a coat to school every day, we will play outside whatever the weather.
The children now have a ttrockstars account and have been shown how to use the programme in school. Using the programme is now part of the weekly homework.
Go to ttrockstars.com/login/54780 and enter the school name and the username and password that the children put in their diaries.
It is important that all children have some undisturbed time to do this and they must do it independently.
Certificates for the top three scores in the class will be given out on a Friday.
