Dear Parents

A very warm welcome to Year 3! We hope that this year will be a fantastic year for both you and your child.

As you know we are 2 weeks into term and have started work with all earnestness. Every week there will be spellings, which your child should have written down in their Spelling book, as well as tables, in their Times Tables books. So please look out for these as it is a very important part of your child’

s learning.

We’

re happy to report that all the children have settled in well with minimal qualms, ensuring a happy and lively environment in both classes.

At the moment we are in the process of employing a Teacher’

s Assistant for Year 3 and are hoping to complete this process as soon as possible.

We are also very fortunate to have had Interactive Smart Boards installed into our classrooms over the summer and this is now an important part of our daily teaching. 

We would also like to encourage you to contact us with any queries or concerns by any means but advise you that email or a note is often the best way as it is quiet often very difficult to have a proper  conversation in the mornings due to the time constraints. You can contact me, Miss Coetzee, at jcoetzee@copthorneprep.co.uk and Mrs. Barrie tbarrie@copthorneprep.co.uk . Alternatively, you can always make an appointment through the office or try to grab us when ever it’s possible.

We look forward to meeting those parents we haven’t seen yet and those we have had the privilege of meeting on the 30th of September at Parents Evening.
