Welcome to the year 3DK class page.  


PE will take place on Thursday and Friday.  Please make sure your child has the correct PE kit.



Children are required to read everyday at home, preferably with an adult and have their reading book changed at least once a week.



A visit to the school library will be on Monday.  Children will be able to choose books to take home to read and change them on the following Monday morning.



Spelling will be given on Monday.  This will involve children researching words with similar spelling patterns.  A test will be conducted on Friday. Ten basic words with the spelling pattern will be chosen.


Thank you for your support
