Year 3/4 Kites 2021 - 2022
Year 3/4 Kites
A particular warm welcome to all our year 3 children and parents, who have just joined us from the infants. We are really looking forward to getting to know you and working alongside your children.
Years 3 and 4 are important transition years in your child’s school journey. They are years where we see children grow before our eyes. They are years where children develop fundimental skills to move through their school journey. It will be an exciting and memorable year where the children will grow, become more independent and learn to self regulate learning. Throughout the year you will be invited into school to look closely at how your child is developing and settling in.
During the first term we will be concentrating on getting to know each other, encouraging independence, making new friends and learning the school routines.
Please follow our school twitter page @AbingdonPrimary to see updates of exciting things going on in our class. This is where you will find photos and videos of the lovely things your children are doing at school!
