St Matthews C of E Primary School

Half-termly Class Newsletter


Class: 3LB

Date: 8.1.18


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 3LB will be every Friday. I 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 me.

Reading Books

Children are allowed to change their reading book independently when they need to.


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

If you would like any guidance on useful questions to ask, please see me.

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.
  • Consolidating the 2, 5 and 10 times tables.
  • Practising counting in 3s, 4s and 8s.
  • Try to make the learning of spellings as fun as possible by playing games.



Thank you for your support.  

If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. I’ll be happy to help.
