- Children may record their own books in the reading record so we can see what else they are reading.
All children will learn to play the ukulele in Year 3. Lessons with a teacher from Hounslow Music Service will begin on Wednesday 22nd September. Please see the Parentmail sent on 6/9/21 for details if you wish to purchase a ukulele and ensure your child brings it to school on the 22nd.

Our topic this term is Active Planet where we will be learning about volcanoes, earthquakes and sources of energy.
Further information about the learning in geography is available on our new Knowledge Organisers. This can be found in Google Classroom.
The below list is part of an initiative called Word Aware that we are using in school. We thought it would be helpful to share this list with you so that you can use some of these words at home when discussing the topic. If your child speaks a different language at home, it would be helpful to discuss and translate these words using your home language. We may add to this list during the topic as new words are introduced.

Please provide a named glue stick for your child to keep in their school pencil case.
Thank you for your continued support.
