Each year, we teachers start out so hopeful and excited to begin the new journey with your child. We come in with hopes and dreams of what the year will be like - and all of those visions include good things for your child. Whilst we are willing to put in the effort, the hours, the creativity, the enthusiasm - having your support results in your child's overall success! 



A very big welcome to Year 3's class page!

Our class page is a fantastic way to share our weekly learning experiences with you and celebrate our achievements along the way. Please ensure you take a look at this half term's newsletter, where you can find out about: specific subject content, important diary dates for this half term and general classroom reminders.
