Elm Year 3
Our P.E. days are Monday and Thursday. Children will need to attend school on these days in full P.E. kit, which is black shorts/leggings/jogging bottoms, white t- short, black sweatshirt and trainers.
Reading books can now be brought into school and changed daily. The expectation is that you will hear your child read 3 times per week.
Reading comprehension books and maths workbooks have now been sent home. These will be kept at home. Each week, I will set which pages are to be completed on seesaw. Please take a picture of your child's completed homework and upload to seesaw. Homework will usually be set on a Friday, to be completed by the following Tuesday.
