Year 3 Spellings and Homework for this half term

Dear Parents and Carers,

Homework for Spring 2nd half 2024

KS2-Spelling-Menu Games

Apologies for the lateness of this post – please try to complete as much as you can, over the next couple of weeks, leading up to Easter. Please can children complete any work in the Homework book they have been provided with.

If children would like to take some time over Easter to complete the short foundation project on Greta Thunberg, this is okay, however, any work completed before Easter and by the deadline of the end of Spring term will be awarded bonus house points!

Thank you for your continued support,

The Year 3 Team.

Thankyou 3T

A huge thankyou to all parents/children of 3T for all your kind words this week. They have truly been appreciated! They are a great class and one I have loved teaching.

I’m sure you will all agree, they look incredible as mini Mr Tipton’s! 🙂

3T W/B 5th Feb

Dear Parents/Guardians of 3T,

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support since the children started at NJS in September. They have all made a brilliant start to their time here and I have truly enjoyed teaching them. I am confident that they will enjoy having Mrs Pearson and Mrs Wheat too.

As you will be aware, next week is very busy so please see events below:

Monday: Swimming

Tuesday: Safer internet day. PE. The class in the afternoon will have chance to spend time with Mrs Pearson.

Wednesday: Beech’s Base in the afternoon so as always please send your child in outdoor clothing suitable for the forest. Please ensure the children have suitable footwear (ideally wellies).

Thursday: Wax work museum day. The class will also have chance to spend time with Mrs Wheat after lunch before the wax work museum.

Friday: Please have PE kits in school as I intend to do some extra PE with the class. Break for half-term.


Mr Tipton 🙂


Class 3B Important Messages and Dates

Dear Parents and Carers,

Last week, 3B won our in-school competition for registering on time, called ‘Beat-the-Bell’. As a reward, (children in 3B only) can wear MUFTI this Friday (2nd February) – well done everyone!

On Tuesday 6th February, children in 3B will have Beech’s Base in the afternoon, and can come dressed in their Beech’s Base clothing, appropriate for the weather. Please send them in with boots in a bag, and waterproof, warm clothing. They MUST have a change of footwear for the morning session.

Finally, if you have already provided your child with a card backdrop for their Waxwork Museum display work, thank you very much – some of these look amazing already. Children are really excited to show you what they have done in class to add to these. We would be really grateful to those who haven’t if they could find something for their children to present their work on – any large cardboard / large cardboard box to deconstruct will do!

Thank you all for helping with this,

Kind regards,

Mr Butler

Class 3B PE kit needed tomorrow (Thursday 1st February)

Dear Parents and Carers,

Just a quick reminder that PE kits are required on Monday, to be left in school and taken home on Friday. Thank you to all those children who did have their kits today!

Today, five children did not have PE kits in school, which creates a supervision issue,  and also deprives those children of learning new skills / knowledge.

For tomorrow, children will need their PE kit for an extra lesson, with Mr Humphries. Please ensure they have their kit, and are prepared for indoor OR outdoor PE, bearing in mind it is cold outside! (bring joggers and sweatshirt as well, just in case).

Thank you for your continued support,

Mr Butler
