Dates for your diary!
We have enjoyed a visit from keystrings where we have learned all about music! This was a fun morning!
Today was our very first special assembly! Congratulations to the children who received an award! Keep up the good work! :)
On Friday, Year 3 went on a times table treasure hunt out on the playground in the sunshine! This was lots of fun!
Today we were joined by our fabulous parents to take part in some super maths activities! We played times table games, parents were challenged to complete the times table rockstars sheet and we also played maths card games! What a great morning! We would like to say a huge thank you to the parents who came to take part. We have also sent home some packs for parents who couldn’t attend, so they can see what we have been up to!
A Special Visitor!
Today we were vistited by some familiar faces! Miss Pitman and Doris the dog came to see how the children are getting on at their new school! It was great to see them! They are very proud of the children and commented how mature and grown up they all are!
Miss Holland took the children who were a little bit worried about the dog into another classroom to enjoy some story writing! :)
More Maths Fun!
Today we worked in pairs to answer maths sums. We worked very well together! After that, children were chosen at random to show their answers to the rest of the class. If their answer was correct, they were given team points!
Thank you parents for attending our parents evening this week. It was great to meet you all and to update you on your child’s progress. Thank you also for filling out the parents evening conversation sheets. There are some wonderful comments from you!

Remembrance Day - Sunday 11th November
Please take a moment to remember the brave people who fought and lost their lives in the wars. Poppies are available on the playground to raise money for The Royal British Legion.
P.E days for 3G are Tuesdays. Please ensure that your children have the correct P.E kit in school all week so they are able to fully take part.
New spellings will be given out every Friday and will be written into the children's organisers. Children will be tested on their spellings the following Friday morning.
Please ensure that the bottom page of your child's organiser is signed each week by Friday.
It is very important to hear your child read on a regular basis, therefore the school asks that an adult hears each child read at least 3 times a week. Please make sure if you hear your child read, you record it in their organiser as children will not be able to change their reading book unless an adult has heard them read.
Whilst reading with your child you could check their understanding further by asking key questions, such as:
Top tips for staying safe online!
1) Don’t post any personal information online – like your address, email address or mobile number.
2) Think carefully before posting pictures or videos of yourself. Once you’ve put a picture of yourself online most people can see it and may be able to download it, it’s not just yours anymore.
3) Keep your privacy settings as high as possible
4) Never give out your passwords
5) Don’t befriend people you don’t know
6) Don’t meet up with people you’ve met online. Speak to your parent or carer about people suggesting you do
7) Remember that not everyone online is who they say they are
8) Think carefully about what you say before you post something online
9) Respect other people’s views, even if you don’t agree with someone else’s views doesn’t mean you need to be rude
10) If you see something online that makes you feel uncomfortable, unsafe or worried: leave the website, turn off your computer if you want to and tell a trusted adult immediately.
