Welcome back!

I hope you have had a fun-filled summer holiday and are feeling refreshed and raring to begin Year 3.  There are lots of exciting learning opportunities to look forward to and Mrs Pointer and I are especially keen to start work on our new topic 'This Is Your Life'  We are also excited about our year's Forest School sessions - details to follow.


This term we will have PE on Mondays so don't forget your kit!  If you wear earrings it would help to leave them at home when we have PE.


Homework will be set on Thursdays and will be collected in on Tuesdays.


If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to ask.


Very best wishes,

Mr Holman
