Please can we have my hats back?

Please can we have my hats back? 1

Ashdown Forest Day 1

28th September


Last week in Year 3, we were starting to look at properties of 2D shapes and how they can be described. We then ended the week by having a re-cap of what happens to numbers when you multiply and divide numbers by 10 and 100. During English lessons we have been looking at the book 'I want my hat back' by John Klasson. It is a wonderfully illustrated book with lots of opportunities for the children to use their inference skills and develop their use of speech. We will be continuing this next week. 


This week all children should have brought home their Mathletics passwords, which are stuck inside their reading record. If you have any problems logging in, please let me know. We all logged in on Friday, so all children know the layout of the site, however i will be reminding them of some of the other features next week.


For those children taking part in the Cross-Country next week, we will be training lots on Monday and Tuesday so please remember your trainers. 


Our first trip to Ashdown Forest next week!


Have a lovely weekend.  

Please find attached below the Year 3 Spelling Bee list. I have colour coded the words that we will be focusing on each week at school, however you may wish  to focus on them in a different order/amount at home depending how quickly they are learnt.

Spelling and Times-table Ideas

Dear Parents,


Welcome back to a new term. I hope you all had a well rested break and are ready for the year ahead and your children are ready to embrace the challenges that will no doubt come their way. 


I have really enjoyed getting to know the children over the last few days and many have already really impressed me with the desire to learn. We have been doing a range of getting to know each other actives and setting the groundwork for the year.  


Please look out for the class letter, topic web and homelearning grid which will appear on this page in the coming days  and will outline many of the routines and expectation of the year. 




Children will need an old t- shirt or apron for messy art and craft lessons. They will also need to have their PE kit at school throughout the week. Please please ensure your child’s uniform and PE kits are named clearly! I have seen a fantastic range of pencil cases this year, however please be advised that as space is limited, they need to be of a sensible size. This year pencil cases should contain;  a HB pencil, ruler , sharpener, pritt stick type glue and whiteboard (dry wipe) pen. Children do not need to bring in writing pens!


I will put an overview of the first term’s topics on this webpage, and our Year 3 and 4 coffee morning is September 20th at 9am. As always I can be contacted via email on the link at the bottom of this page.  Please do arrange an appointment to see me via the school office with any concerns you may have. 


Best wishes,


Mr Cook
