Thank you to the parents who managed to make the 'Meet the teacher' session. I hope you found the information useful. For those who were unable to attend I have sent home this week the end of year expectations for you to keep along with the ICT agreement and the photographic permission forms. Please can you ensure that these are completed and returned to school by Wednesday 27th at the latest.
This week the children in 3D all enjoyed a taster session of squash and took home a letter informing parents of the squash after school club. We are hoping that the children will have the opportunity to attend some other taster sessions during the Autumn term.
I know that many of the children will have informed you that they have been doing some assessments this week. These will continue during the upcoming week ahead and will form the benchmark assessment for Year 3. These will enable us to identify areas of strength and weakness in their learning and allow us to plan lessons accordingly.
The children have all had a positive start to Year 3 and are settling into their new routine well. Thank you for your support during the last few weeks!
This week we have started our topic work. In History we are studying the Romans and this week we began learning about the foundation of Rome and the Roman empire.
In Science we are beginning our topic work on Rocks and over the next few weeks we will be learning about the formation of rocks.
We have started our French lessons and the children are becoming more confident in saying hello, giving their names and asking the names of other people. The are now learning to ask how other people are and to respond in kind to other people asking how they are. We hope that you will be able to support their learning by encouraging them to try their new language skills at home.
Welcome to a new term at Rushmere Hall. I hope that you all had a lovely restful break and have returned to school ready for new challenges. We have a busy timetable but I will by trying to update my blog every week to keep you informed of the work we have covered during the week and the new topics we have coming up.
Just to remind parents that you have the opportunity to come and meet me on Friday 15th at 3:45pm in the classroom, when I can let you know a little more about the year ahead and Year 3 procedures.
We are 3D!
