Beech’s Base Head Teacher Award Children

Good Morning NJS!

Hope you are all well. I am excited to share that as it stands children with a HTA will still be able to attend Beech’s Base Monday Lunchtime. As we are still in bubbles we will still have to separate the children for HTA at Beech’s Base. Below is how it will be organised.

All children who have received a HTA will attend on Monday. Those who need to catch up from previous missed weeks can also attend this Monday 🙂

  • Children will need to come into school in suitable outdoor clothing not uniform. They can bring a change of clothes for afterwards if they wish, this does not need to be uniform. Outdoor shoes/wellies will need to be brought in, in a carrier bag.
  • A packed lunch will need to be brought in please.

Children will attend for half an hour with their time split between eating their packed lunch and toasting a marshmallow. This will allow us to be able to keep year groups separate. They will have half an hour playtime with their peers either before or after their time at Beech’s Base depending on the year group they are in.

If you have any questions please feel free to email me:

Many thanks

Mrs Kuczynska


Christmas Decoration

On Monday 29th November we will be taking delivery of our Christmas tree for the school hall, we are very excited!

It is an NJS tradition that Year 3 children are asked to donate a Christmas tree decoration to place on the tree that the school will then keep and place on the tree each year.

If you would like to donate a decoration please bring it into school on or before the 29th November and hand it to your Year 3 teacher.

Thank you for your support.

Year 3 Homework and Spellings Autumn 2nd half 2021

Dear Parents and Carers,

Homework for Autumn 2nd half 2021

Homework for Autumn 2nd half 2021 PDF

KS2-Spelling-Menu Games

Please find attached the homework and spellings sheet for this half term. We will be testing the children on their spellings sometime on or after Wednesday 8th December. 

On the sheet, you will find details of their English, Maths and Foundation  project to complete this half term. Please try to encourage your child to complete a small amount for the project each week, and not to leave things until the last minute!

We also ask you to encourage your child to form good learning habits, by practicing Times Tables little and often, using TTRS regularly or by some other means, reading every day, and at least weekly for the spellings. This can be rewarded at home, and will definitely be rewarded in school!

Thank you for your continuing support,

Kind regards,

The Year 3 Team

Yr 3 Residential Meeting – Cancelled

Due to the uncertainty around our bubble situation, I feel it easier to cancel the Yr 3 Residential meeting tomorrow (2nd.) I hoped we would know more about our bubbles before this meeting took place.

I would like to rearrange the meeting for Tuesday 16th November – 3.30pm in the school hall.

I appreciate your understanding with this and look forward to seeing you on the 16th.

Year 3 Parents Workshops

Good Morning

I hope you have all had a wonderful half term. If your child is booked on one of the parent workshops either tomorrow or Wednesday please find details below.

On the day which your child is booked on please could they come to school in their warm outdoor clothes with wellies/outdoor shoes in a separate bag. In addition to this please could they bring in a change of clothes (just incase they get super muddy/wet!).  This doesn’t need to be uniform just spare clothes to change into for the rest of the day.

Many thanks

Mrs Kuczynska

Year 3 Parent Workshops at Beech’s Base

Good Afternoon Year 3

I hope you have had a wonderful half term. Thank you for those who have signed up for the Parent Workshops. We still have some availability if you email me: I will endeavour to book you in and respond with a time.

On the day:

Please come to Main Reception and sign in. I will collect the children from their classrooms and they will get ready prior to the session beginning. Once all the parents have arrived the children and I will meet you outside Main Reception and we will head over to Beech’s Base together.

Please come dressed for the great outdoors as we will have nowhere to store changes of shoes/clothes etc.

Looking forward to meeting you all 🙂

Many thanks

COVID Update

Just a quick note to let you know that there has been a positive COVID-19 case within Year 3.

You do not have to do anything, and your child will not have to self-isolate and can come in to school as normal, but you may be contacted by Test & Trace if your child is identified as a close contact. If they are, the advice you will be given on behalf of your child is as follows:

“Even if you do not have symptoms, you will be advised to have a PCR test as soon as possible. Children aged 4 and under will not be advised to take a test unless the positive case was someone in their own household.

You should not arrange to have a PCR test if you have previously received a positive PCR test result in the last 90 days, unless you develop any new symptoms of COVID-19, as it is possible for PCR tests to remain positive for some time after COVID-19 infection.

Even if you are vaccinated, you can still be infected with COVID-19 and pass it on to others. If you are identified as a contact of someone with COVID-19 but you are not required to self-isolate, you can help protect others by following the guidance on how to stay safe and help prevent the spread. As well as getting a PCR test, you may also consider:

  • limiting close contact with people outside your household, especially in enclosed spaces
  • wearing a face covering in enclosed spaces and where you are unable to maintain social distancing
  • limiting contact with anyone who is clinically extremely vulnerable
  • taking part in twice weekly LFD testing

This advice applies until 10 full days after your most recent contact with the person who has tested positive for COVID-19.

If you develop symptoms at any time, even if these are mild, self-isolate immediately, arrange to have a COVID-19 PCR test and follow the guidance for people with COVID-19 symptoms.”

You may wish to follow this advice in any case, but we would certainly ask that you are vigilant for symptoms and if your child does develop symptoms, keep them off school and get them PCR tested using the following link:

Take care
