Dear Parents/Carers,

It's lovely to have started the first half term on such a positive note.

Most, if not all the children in Jupiter class have settled into their new environment and are happy to be in school everyday, thanks to you parents.

We have already had some exciting lessons and I hope that your children are keeping you up to date with their learning. 


Below are some of the tools that you can use to help you have an informed and successful year.


If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me on the class email address: 


Kind regards,

Autumn1 Curriculum


In year the children are expected to read everyday. They are encouraged to read independently, however it is important that they read with an adult so that they can learn important reading skills like  inferencing and comprehending the information from the text read. As we want our children to develop a love for reading, we are encouraging the children to choose their own book and read at fifteen minutes daily at home/ a chapter everyday. When they have completed these books they can share it with an adult and then get another book.

In year 3 we will be focussing on forming our pre cursive letters so that we will be able to write in a cursive style later on.
