Below you will find important information regarding your child's PE time slot and information on reading.


At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- A fortnightly update of all the exciting things that happen within 3H! Enjoy!


Reading Books

Every child in 3H will have a reading book and we encourage them to read with an adult at home. We will visit the library weekly and children will bring home their choice of a library book. Please ensure that their reading books and reading records are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week. Every time a child reads with an adult, they will receive a stamp on their reading chart, which will earn them certificates and book prizes.


P.E Days

3H will have PE once a week, however, the day may change. Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school every day. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.

The closer the object is to the light, the bigger the shadow. JD. 

The closer you are to the light, the more you are blocking the light and the bigger the shadow. MC.
