Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

I and Mrs Nayyar look forward to working with you and your child during this academic year.  Together, we will ensure that your child is supported throughout the year.  This year, your child will be building on their knowledge from KS1 to become independent, mature learners. 

If you have any questions or concerns, I am around after school or alternatively you can arrange a more convenient time with me at the office.

Once again, I look forward to working with you over the year and supporting your child throughout this year at St. Anne’s.

Miss Sullivan

 

OUR FAITH

Wednesday Word

The Primary School Wednesday Word is an outreach which shares Sunday's Gospel with all school families, in a unique way.

The weekly handouts consist of high-quality Sunday Gospel leaflets and booklets which are given to children each week - as a gift.

This is a weekly Gospel 'gift' from the school to the child to take home, which then becomes a 'gift' from the child to the whole family. 

Due to current disruption, you can download an 'online' editions of The Wednesday Word, until things settle down. 

Wednesday Word- Wednesday 23rd September
