NIGHTINGALE CLASS PAGEnightingale images

Update: w/c Monday 5.2.18

The children have started the new year with great enthusiasm and we can’t believe that January has already flown by.   They have enjoyed the exciting topics we’ve covered so far this term, including: writing their own fairy tales in English; learning about volcanoes and earthquakes in Geography, and having fun with magnets in Science.

We were very sorry to say goodbye to Mrs Deeks at the end of last week, but wish her well for the future.

As this half term draws to a close, we thought it might be useful to remind you of a couple of Maths websites that the school uses which the children can practise their Maths on.  Weekly Maths tasks and games are set on Abacus at and times tables practice is available under the ‘Garage’ section on  Logins and passwords are on the inside front cover of the children’s homework folders.

Forest School Session 4.12.17

Nightingales really enjoyed their topic linked session this afternoon. The children worked in small groups building stone age temporary shelters. Well done to all the children for all their research into stone age shelters and the materials that would have been used. Their designs were fantastic and Mrs Ryker and I were very impressed with their team work and enthusiasm. Great job Nightingales! Mrs Summers

Nightingale Update 20.11.17:  We are so excited to be welcoming Year 3 back into our new classroom.  The room looks amazing and we know that the children are going to love having this new space.  Each child now has a locker allocated to them and so everything that they bring into school can be kept in these.  If you have any questions about the new classroom set-up please let Mrs Ryker or Mrs Roberts know.

Welcome to Nightingale Class: the Year 3 class at Cheapside School.  On Mondays and Tuesdays, Mrs Ryker teaches the class and on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, Mrs Roberts teaches the class.

Year 3 is the beginning of the learning adventure in upper school and is an important transition from Key Stage 1 to Key Stage 2.  The children have more personal responsibility and are really encouraged to take care of their things, of the school and of the other children around the school.  They also have lots of new thing to learn and enjoy!

General Notices:

P.E. is currently on Tuesdays and Thursdays, so please make sure that kit is in school on these days; kit may also be needed on other days, so it is best if pupils leave it in school all week.

Outdoor shoes are required in school at all times so that the children can access the school field at play time.  These can be outdoor trainers or wellies.

Reading books and reading records should be in school every day.


Homework is set on a Friday and red homework folders should come back into school on a Wednesday.  Currently, homework comprises weekly spellings and times tables, and daily reading.  Please sign your child’s reading record as often as they read.

If you have any concerns or queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Mrs Roberts & Mrs Ryker
