Dear Parents and Guardians, 


As you are aware, we will be going on a trip on Friday 27th February. I am looking for volunteers willing to come with us on our fabulous trip. 


If you are available and willing to come would you please let me know as soon as possible.


Thank you for your continued support!


Mr Pearson.



    Quick note: small error with the newsletter. Spellings will be tested on Friday, as usual, not a Monday as the Newsletter says. 


Have a good weekend, 


Mr Pearson



Dear Parents and Guardians,

                                                Just a quick message to point you towards the Spring Newsletter. An extension I would like to add to the newsletter; all children should now have come home with the homework tasks and spellings. Firstly, as you look at the spellings I am sure you will notice how difficult they are and this is due to the change in curriculum, which has seen a shift in the content of work down from year 4 to year 3. I would advise an extra focus on spellings and this hopefully will help overcome this challenge. Testing of spellings will continue to be a Friday, after assembly. 

                Secondly, the homework tasks provide amble opportunity for the children to look at the topic in more detail than which we are capable in class. This term is a short half term and it allows the children to cherry pick the tasks they would like to undertake. It would be beneficial to me when a task is completed it is shown to me. This allows me the freedom to monitor who in the class is participating in the homework, rather than receiving it on the last week where my comments when marking have less relevance, as we will be moving on to the next topic.


I hope you have an enjoyable half term and any queries come and speak to me, before or after school.


Mr Pearson 


Spring 1 Newsletter

The Arctic Explorer

Still image for this video
An Arctic explorer came into to class to talk to the Lower Juniors about what he had found out on his adventures in the Arctic and the different animals he had seen. The children learnt a lot and got the opportunity to ask questions. We, as a school phase, would like to thank Mr Holly for coming into school and being a fountain of knowledge. We wish him luck on his future adventures.


Quick Notice


I hope everyone feels rested after the weekend, as we have a very busy week ahead. Starting with Mass on Wednesday 26th November, at 11AM, which you and other family members are all invited. Then following this, on Friday, we have our class assembly where we will be teaching the school about Advent. If it is possible, can you practise their words with the children for Friday. For the shorter lines it would be great if they knew them off by heart.  Again, I would like to apologise for the constant date changes this term, which makes coming to these events difficult but it was unavoidable for different reasons including the rearrangement of photographs and teaching courses. 



Have a good week,


Mr Pearson 

Year 3 - Autumn 2


Welcome back and I hope everyone has had a lovely half term. The new topic for this half term is 'Exploring the Arctic'. Your child should have come home with their Home Learning Journal full of new and interesting tasks for them to undertake. Also within their book is the spellings for the half term. These spellings will be tested on a Friday, starting with 14th November. I would recommend that the Home Learning Journal is regularly brought in so I can see the progress the child is making with the tasks and also tally the points each child has. For the tasks to be beneficial I would suggest not doing more than one task per week, so as not not put them off the topic. 


Also new this half term is going to be the availability of maths games and tasks which will be completed at home. These will be fun for the class while also embedding mathematical knowledge, which we have be learning through the week. Further information will be passed when these are available for the class to do. 


This half term is going to be a very busy one but I would like to draw your attention to two dates. Wednesday 26th November - Class Mass and Friday 28th November - our class assembly. I am aware that these dates have changed numerous times and differing messages have been given out. I apologise for this but the changes have been unavoidable. However, I can securely say I do not see these dates changing in the future. I would also ask that these dates are passed to other parents who may not visit the website on a regular basis. 


Thank you very much again for all your continued support. I hope you have a brilliant half term.


Mr Pearson


P.S. REMEMBER task points = prizes.
