Dear Parents/Carers, 


A big thank you for all your support during this time. The children have settled into new routines fantastically and some are showing just how, keeping up with the routine of school work at home during lock down, really is reaping the rewards! Please continue to send in the requested work using the e-mail account.


If you have not returned yet (don't worry - we will see you soon), please continue to send in your work via the homework e-mail. 


PLEASE ADD THE NAME OF THE PUPIL AND CLASS IN THE TITLE OF THE EMAIL, THANK YOU! This will make it easier for the new teachers to sort through emails. 


This week we would like you to mark your own maths using the answer pages on the website and let the class teacher know if you found something really easy or were struggling with something. 


We would also like you to send a photograph/ copy of your poem about your new class animal.


Keep looking in the gallery to see if any of your work is there.


You are all amazing. Take care.

The new Year 4 teachers.


Goodbye from us to you...we will miss you all so much!

Our Year 3 Caterpillar To Butterfly Diary

Welcome to our year 3 caterpillar/butterfly update. We got the tiny caterpillars 3 weeks ago and you can see their progress in the photographs below. It looks like they have started to go into a cocoon ready to emerge as butterflies very soon!

Since we are no longer at school, we, your teachers, have all brought some caterpillars home with us. Keep checking the pictures for regular updates on how our Year 3 butterflies are transforming!

Setting The Butterflies Free at Miss Sian's House

On Monday 6th April, I released four Painted Lady butterflies in the garden. It was a beautiful sunny day and not too windy - perfect weather to set the butterflies free and a great way to start a new week. A couple of them were ready to leave the butterfly habitat net and fly away on their own, while the other two needed a little help from my nephew and I. They quietly crawled on to my hand (and then my nephew's hand) ready to fly up and away! It was a magical experience that we all enjoyed together as a family. I hope that you enjoy watching the butterflies fly away, ready to start their new lives in their natural habitats. #befree #freedom #flyaway #lifecycleofabutterfly

David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation


After reading the biography of a local conservationist, David Shepherd we contacted the foundation and they visited Years 3 & 4 to deliver talks on animal conservation.


We are now delighted to announce Ryvers School have adopted Nkala an African elephant 🐘, and Inka a black rhino 🦏.

Pupils have been really excited about learning about wildlife in Africa and are keen to learn more about conservation efforts across Africa and the world! It is wonderful to see young people becoming so passionate about caring for our world. smiley


Year 3 Routines

Homework ðŸ“

Homework will be handed out on a Thursday and due in on the following Tuesday. If your child has any questions about the homework the class teachers and teaching assistants will have the opportunity to assist on the Monday.


Reading Records ðŸ“š

Reading Records should be filled in each week with a comment of how your child is progressing with the text. There will be two opportunities each week to change reading books, as well as visit the School Library fortnightly. 


My Maths ðŸ§®

All pupils have been given their log in details for My Maths . We encourage using My Maths at least twice a week at home to consolidate the learning in school. Teachers in Year 3 will be setting homework on My Maths regularly and monitoring the progress children are making by setting assessments each term. 


Spelling âœ”️

Pupils will have a set of spelling words to learn each week and will be exploring spelling patterns in class. 


If you have any questions about homework, please see your child's class teacher or Mrs Sondh (Phase Leader).
