To mark our last week in Year Three we would like to have a'Pyjama Party'each day. The children can come to school in their pyjamas, if they so wish. Please remember they will still need trainers to play outside.
For lunch they can bring in their own plate of party food/ packed lunch.
We will be having a special film on for which they can bring in a small bag of sweets or popcorn.
This weeks theme- Being resilient. Here are our resilient superheroes!
Our theme this week has been resilience/being brave.
We have looked at the story of Robert the Bruce and the determined spider.
Theme for the Week - Happiness
We have written our own little books of happiness. We have thought about what makes us happy and how we can help ourselves, as well as others , be happy.
Please can all the children bring their kits to school on a Monday and then take them home on a Friday for washing. Each child has been given a locker to store their bags in. Please can long hair be tied back and no jewellery worn on a PE day, thank you.

Our chosen charity
This year we have chosen Colwyn Bay Food Bank as our charity. At Christmas we will be undertaking a 'Reverse Advent' in class. This means rather than the children opening a door each day we will put in a donation to our food box daily. We will then be taking the collection down to the food bank in the week before Christmas.
Thank you to everyone who has donated to our Reverse Advent this month.
