Welcome to Year 3J!
Hello and a very BIG welcome to Year 3J's homepage
This term, the children will be participating in swimming lessons as part of the P.E Curriculum. The children will be asked to bring a swimming kit which includes; a swimming costume or swimming trunks (no shorts), swimming hat, towel and goggles if required.
As part of the Creative Curriculum in our school, during the Summer Term the children will be learning about the LONDON 2012 Olympic Games.
We will be looking into the history of the Olympic Games and learning about the different countries and athletes that will participate in the games. Included in our topic, we will also be studying Our Locality and comparing it to London.
We will also be given the chance to learn about the different sporting events that are taking place during the Olympic Games and we will create our very own mascot, as well as participating in our own
MINI OLYMPIC GAMES!

Children will be given an opportunity to change their reading books once they have completed their book and it has been signed. The children will place their books in the basket provided and their book will be changed on the same day (when possible).
During and after completion of the book, please spend time discussing the plot, characters, layout, new knowledge gained etc., as analysis of the text becomes increasingly important in the Juniors. I do ask that the children bring their books into school on a daily basis as this will enable me to write a comment in their Reading Diary when they have read in a small group or individually to me or another adult.
All homework will be given on Monday night and will be collected in on the Friday of the same week. This will allow your child to have a well earned rest over the weekend
All homework should be done neatly and in pencil. Help may be given, but your child must record the work themselves. If you have supported your child with their homework, I would appreciate it if you could star * each question you have helped them with.
P.E lessons will take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Your child is required to have their full P.E kit in class during term time and they will be sent home during half term for washing
Many thanks for your co-operation. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me.
