Dear parents and children,
Welcome back to a brand new year at Heavers Farm Primary School! This year is going to be very exciting and filled with lots of fun learning opportunities.
This half term, we will be beginning our Stone Age History topic, learning about important figures in Black History, looking at Animals including Humans in Science and exploring digital devices in Computing.
Year 3 is slightly different to Year 2. We will begin learning Spanish and will be going Swimming later this term! If you would like your child to have a fruit snack for break time, they will need to bring one in.
Swimming will be every day for two weeks when we are scheduled to attend lessons. Children will need to bring in a swimming kit (swimsuit, swimming hat and a towel) and come to school in their PE kit during the two weeks that they have Swimming.
Onyx Class: 17th October – 4th November (Split over the Half Term break)
Jet Class: 7th – 18th November
Spellings will be added to this very blog on Fridays. Children can practice their spellings in their Reading Diaries, which should be checked and signed by parents every day. Children will be required to change their reading books every week and should be reading their book for at least 10 minutes everyday.
Next week, we will be introducing the children to Times Tables Rockstars and will send their login details home via their Reading Diaries. Children are expected to practice their times tables using this resource for at least 10 minutes each day.
If you have any further questions about the upcoming half term, please feel free to speak to either Miss Batley or Miss D’Souza in the mornings or afternoons, or email us via: firstname.lastname@example.org.
