Welcome to the Bluebell Class Webpage.
Dear Bluebells and families.
Welcome to year 3. We’ve had a great start to the year with everyone settling in well and already producing some really impressive work in all subjects. I always have high expectations of the children I teach and the new Bluebells are working amazingly hard already. You should be very proud, they’re wonderful.
As you know, this half term’s theme has been dinosaurs in which we have learnt about rock types, fossils, dinosaurs and finally how we think they became extinct. I am still trying to book a trip to Dinosaur Isle on the Isle of Wight. I will keep you posted on this.
Next half term the theme is Magic during which we will be visited by a real magician. ‘Georges Marvellous Medicine’ will be our class reader and our English model text. Along with making magic potions, spooky spells and other magical events this will be another excellent opportunity for your children to shine yet again. You will see for yourselves their amazing work when you visit our Magic Day towards the end of term.
As you will know we’ve introduced a new reading system. Bluebells have already been awarded as the winners of the most reading quizzes in the whole school! This is very impressive as the older ones usually win these. Another example of your children’s dedication and yours for making sure they read daily at home. Let’s keep going and win next month’s too. Another success is the Monday spelling test scores which have been great too. All above 50%, most around 70% to 90%. This is excellent, so well done again.
Although homework is completed by most I will remind you of its importance. The homework is now a consolidation of the work they have been doing in school. Also please make sure they have a PE kit to wear for daily PE.

If you need to talk something through or need guidance you are welcome anytime as long as I’m free and there are no children around. No problem at all. If I am busy we can arrange another time very soon.
