Welcome back Squirrels!


I cannot wait to see all of your smiley faces, bright and early on Tuesday morning! I am really excited that I get to teach you again this year and I know we are going to have lots of fun together!


Mrs Ashworth will be working with us all week this year and we also have Mrs Baskill helping out on a Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday! I know they are both very much looking forward to working with you again.


Start and Finish Times


Year 3's start time is 8:50am and we will finish at 3:05pm. You will be collected and dismissed from the Bakewell Drive gate at these times. It is really important that you are on time to school and being collected as other classes will also be using this entrance at different times.




Your PE session with Miss Gell is on a Tuesday afternoon. You must come to school wearing your PE kit on this day. You cannot get changed at school. PE kit can be black, blue or grey PE shorts or jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt, school jumper and trainers. Most of our PE sessions will take place outdoors so please dress appropriately for the weather.


Water Bottles


Please make sure that you bring a water bottle to school everyday. It will go home each evening to be washed. It is really important that we try to be as clean and hygienic as possible!




In Autumn 1 you will receive homework on a Friday. This will need to be returned by the following Wednesday. Autumn 2 will be a creative project. You will also receive spellings to learn at home each week.




Please continue to read at least 4 times a week at home and record this in your reading diary. It is one of the most important things you can do! We love reading at Westglade and will continue with our reading challenges this year.




How to Wash a Woolly Mammoth

Our Class Book

Our class back for this half term is called 'The Wild Way Home' by Sophie Kirtley.


'I'm in the Stone Age, aren't I?'


When Charlie's baby brother Dara is born with a problem in his heart, Charlie RUNS. Runs to the forest, with its sheltering leaves that shut out trouble and hurt and fear. But in the forest is a boy, lying in the river, breathing, though only just. And when Charlie goes for help, the forest has changed. Now, it's something vast and strange. Something ancient. Something WILD.


And Charlie is a long, long way from home.


An unforgettable adventure about courage, hope, family and finding your way.

At Westglade our curriculum is driven by our 'Learning Challenge' question. Each half term we have a new question that we explore.
