Hello and welcome to Year 3! 

It is lovely to to meet you all. You seem very grown up already and seem to be handling your 'Big Move Upstairs' really well!

However there are some new routines, so don't worry if you still feel a bit nervous.

I am Mrs Walsh and our teaching assistants are Mrs Bettridge and Mrs Shaw. We've all been at Portland for a really long time, so please ask us if you need any help.

Our topics this term are favourites of ours.... Early Britain, where we learn all about the Stone Age through to the Iron Age, and Volcanoes, where we'll be making our own working model of a volcano!

For the time being, PE is on a Thursday. We have your school PE kits here, but if you would like to bring in sensible running around pumps or trainers, that would help. 

Homework is  given out on a Monday and should be:

  • Spellings, for a test the following Friday
  • Maths, based on class learning or a general topic, eg; times tables
  • A reading book, which you should try to read throughout the week to someone in your house.
You will get a dojo point if you bring your homework in, and I will keep a record of who does or does not do homework each week.
We have no trips or visits planned as yet, but I will get in touch as soon as possible if that changes.
Please do not hesitate to come and find myself or Mrs Shaw or Mrs Bettridge if there are any issues or problems,
Mrs Walsh x




Love from, 

Mrs Walsh
