In 3 Hazel this year, Mrs Harris will be teaching every day alongside Mrs Kitching. All lessons will be taught by the class teacher, except during the teacher’s PPA time, which will be covered by the class TA, Mrs Kitching. Any interventions or small group support will be delivered by the Year 3 TAs.
This term's Learning Letter can be found on the website, and shows the areas of the curriculum we will be covering in term 1. Please keep an eye out for these each term as the learning will change term by term. We endeavour to make learning as engaging and interactive as possible and although we are currently unable to organise any trips, we will be looking at welcoming visitors or attending workshops via Zoom.
PE will be on Tuesdays and the children should come to school in their PE kits (and preferably with a named, light, waterproof jacket because we will be outside in all weathers) until further notice. PE kit is black shorts and a T-shirt in the colour of your child’s house team. This can be one with the school crest or a plain coloured T-shirt. Trainers should be worn, not plimsolls, as PE will be outdoors. In winter terms, PE kit also includes plain, grey tracksuit bottoms. These may be worn sooner if the weather turns cold.
Children should not wear earrings on PE days.  
Home-learning on a weekly basis. This will be put onto this webpage and will be accompanied by an answer sheet. We are asking that you don't send in hard copies of home learning sheets for the time-being but will be reviewing this later in the year. Activities with accompanying lessons will be set on MyMaths weekly, and the children have log-ins for Times Table Rock Stars. This is an optional extra which we encourage in order to build mathematical fluency.   Occasionally, activities will be set on ‘Purple Mash’, details for which will be on the home learning sheet.
Please spend about 30 minutes on home learning each week and ensure that an appropriate environment is provided.
We would also like children to read to an adult at least three times a week. At present journals and reading books are not coming home but you might like to encourage your child to keep a log of what they are reading so that they can see their own progress.  We hope to be able to send individual reading books home again as soon as we have decided on a safe way of doing so.
At Ashdown ‚ÄčPrimary, we look to reinforce good behaviour through the use of praise and reward. Children are awarded ‘house points’ for the following;
  • Organisation
  • Resilience
  • Perseverance
  • Confidence
  • Getting Along
Children can also earn marbles for their class. Once the jar is full the class gets a whole-class treat! These could be;
  • Extra play time
  • Games session or fun activity
If you wish to contact your child’s teacher, the easiest method is via e-mail… aharris@ashdown.e-sussex.sch.uk
