All about Mr Ducker:
I love sport and still play football, cricket and golf on a weekly basis as well as supporting my favourite teams; Rotherham United and Glasgow Rangers! Visiting new places, countries and watching football on a Saturday is something I look forward to and I look forward to finding all about the children's hobbies throughout the year!
Year Three welcome prayer:
I ask for your help as I begin this new school year. Allow me to experience your presence in the many blessings you put before me. Open my eyes to the new challenges and exciting opportunities that this new school year brings. Open my heart and mind to new friends and new teachers. Give me a generous spirit to be enthusiastic with my studies and courage to accept new opportunities. Help me to be attentive to my teachers and let me experience Your presence in my new friends. Jesus, inspire me to do my best this year!
General school information
Year 3 key information
►Reading - Reading is at the heart of all our learning at Holy Family. To support this at home, please could all children ensure that they read their school reading book every night and that the planner is signed by an adult. Children will need to bring their reading book and planner back to school each day.
►Spellings - Every Monday, all children will receive a new spelling list based on spelling rules/patterns which will have been our focus in class. Please can all children learn the given spellings ready for our Friday spelling tests.
►Homework - All children will be given weekly English or maths homework. This is to be completed and returned to school as required.
►PE - PE will take place every Thursday and Friday. All children must have the correct school PE kit of white t-shirt and black/ Navy shorts and trainers. (Track suits may be worn as the weather turns colder). Please ensure that all children have trainers to enable them to fully participate in this key subject.
As always, thank you for your continued support.
Please don't hesitate to contact me at school if you have any questions or concerns.
