Grove Park Primary School


Welcome to 3B!


Term 1

This term we will be focusing on well-being in our classroom. It is a long time since most of us have been at school and it will feel strange to be recalling and following classroom routines. However, it will be fantastic to see our friends and teachers again! We will be thinking carefully about our thoughts and feelings and who we might turn to if we need some support, we will be getting used to the 'new normal' and building a classroom full of positivity and happiness. When we are happy, we will be ready to learn!


Keep checking our web page as it will be updated with homelearning and many other important messages, as well as photos of us as we learn!



All PE will take place outside regardless of the weather, so please ensure your child has the following in their PE bag:




Jogging bottoms


Spare socks

(All named please)

PE days will change throughout the year, so please make sure your child’s PE kit is in school at all times.



We will be providing drinks (blackcurrant or orange) in year 3. This will be the same as in the infants- £10 for the year or £4 per term (September, January, April). We also use this money to provide treats and other extra-curricular activities. Please place the money in a sealed envelope with your child’s name on and indicate if they are not allowed any particular flavour of squash.



Please note, fruit is NOT provided in the juniors as the free fruit scheme is for infants only. If you wish your child to have a snack at playtime, please send them in with their choice of fruit. No other snacks are allowed.


Website, education city and bug club

I will update our website termly and will add any further information you need to know as necessary. I have also attached times tables challenge sheets and high frequency word sheets for you to access at home.

The children should also have their logins and passwords for education city and bug club and, once these sites are updated for the new school year, I will ensure your child has books to read. We will use education city to set some home learning as well. If you have any issues or need login and password reminders, please let me know.


Drop off and pick up times

A polite reminder to please drop off and pick up your child in your allocated time slot only to minimise the number of people on site. Unfortunately, we are not allowed to 'chat' (as much as we would like to!) but please feel free to email me instead if you have any concerns or information to pass on.

Thank you
