St Matthews C of E Primary School

Half-termly Class Newsletter


Class: 3LT and 3LB

Date: 26.2.18


The children will continue their swimming lessons at Chadderton baths every Thursday morning. They will need a swimming bag with a towel and trunks (boys) or a swimming costume (girls). Please note that long hair must be tied back with a bobble and jewellery must not be worn. Thank you for your support with this.


PE day for 3LT will now be every Tuesday. PE day for 3LB will be every Friday. We would be very grateful if jewellery is not worn on this day of the week, due to health and safety reasons.


Please could you ensure your child has their full PE kit in school. We recommend that they keep it in school for the full half term.


If you have any questions or concerns about swimming or PE, please come and speak to us, we will be happy to help!

Reading Books

Home reading books will be changed on a weekly basis either by member of staff, or sometimes the children will be given the opportunity to choose for themselves.


It would benefit your child immeasurably if you could read with, or to them on a daily basis.

How can parents help?

  • Daily reading.
  • Accessing the websites listed below.
  • Providing a quiet area for homework.
  • Regular visits to the library. Giving children the opportunity to select their own books encourages a love of reading and allows them to explore their own interests.
  • Practising counting in 3’s, 4’s and 8’s and learning these times tables and related division facts.
  • Counting money, paying for items in shops, working out change, making the same amount with different coins.
  • Practising telling the time to the nearest 5 minutes.



Thank you for your support.

If you have any questions or concerns, please let us know.
