Squirrels (Y3)

Welcome back Squirrels!

It is a huge pleasure to be your teacher again, and to see how far you have all progressed. We have lots of exciting things planned for this half term, including learning about Ancient Egypt!


A few things to remember...


Start and Finish Times

Our class start time is 8:50am. Our class finish time is 3:05pm. Your child will be dismissed from the bottom gate on Bakewell Drive by their class teacher.


Reading diaries will be checked each week to see who is showing off their fantastic reading at home. Class Dojo's will be given to children who are reading 4 times a week. Let's see if we can have the most children reading at home this half term! I will look forward to hearing about the amazing books you have read. 


P.E is still on a Tuesday this half term, and we are hoping to get outside as much as possible in the fresh air. Please come in your PE kit (white t-shirt, black, blue or navy joggers or leggings and trainers) on these days with a school jumper over the top.


Please remember to bring a water bottle with you that can then be washed at home. 


If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

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.
