Welcome to Forest Fields Primary and Nursery School

Year 3

Year 3 2020-2021

Dear Parents and Carers,


Happy New Year. We hope that you have had a happy and healthy holidays.


As you will have seen on the news, schools are now closed and children will be working at home until after February half term. Obviously, we are very disappointed not to be in class with your children and we will miss them tremendously. We know the difference being in school makes to the children, but we will do our best to make sure that we cover what we had originally planned.


Please check your child's class email every morning for the daily timetable and the website for extra resources, especially if your child is in a Read Write Inc group. Your child should know if they have RWI, but please email us if you have any questions.


We hope that we will be back in school with the children as soon as possible. 


Keep safe,


The Year 3 Team





Read Write Inc groups

If you are normally in a Read Write Inc group with Miss Araghchinchi, Miss Porter, Mrs Khan or Mr Saunders, we will be posting a daily video for you to practice your letters and sounds as well as the work in the workbook. There will be one daily video for Miss Araghchinchi's group and another for the remaining Read Write Inc groups.
