Summer 2 Message from Mrs Shewan
The Year 3 ‘team’, can’t quite believe that we are now in the final weeks of your child being in Year 3! We have had a fantastic year so far and still have lots of great learning ahead.
As outlined on the Summer 2 Teaching and Learning Newsletter below, over the remaining six weeks, we will be learning through four great topics: ‘The Rotten Romans’, ‘What Matters Most?’, ‘Wimbledon’ and ‘Au Revoir’.
Linked to our ‘Wimbledon’ topic, the children are lucky enough to be receiving tennis coaching from Sean Stafford, a qualified coach, on Friday 30th June, 7th July and 14th July; the children must come in their full PE kits as usual apart from Friday 14th July when as it’s a non-uniform day, they will need to bring their PE kit in a bag.
Weather permitting, the children will also be participating in the School Sports Day on the afternoon of Wednesday 28th June and you are most welcome to come and support this.
We have a class trip planned for Thursday 29th June to the Dewa Roman Experience in Chester; this will be a great way to consolidate our learning about ‘The Rotten Romans’! You will receive a separate letter with regards to this.
Sadly, Miss Crossley will be finishing her teaching placement on Friday 30th June, but we are hoping to still see her after this, as she has volunteered to support us on various days until the end of term.
During the morning of 5th July, the children will be visiting the Year 4 classroom and meeting their new teacher, Miss Bamber.
Thank you for all your support this academic year – your children have been an absolute delight to teach!
