Hello and welcome to Mr Welbourne's Zeus class web page! I'm really looking forward to, once again, teaching in year 3 in my fourth year at Longmoor and guiding you through your first experience of being in key stage two! We have an exciting year ahead of us and I look forward to you sharing lots of learning and lots of smiles throughout your time in Year 3!
Our PE days are Monday and Wednesday. Please ensure that children have their indoor and outdoor PE kits in school for these days, and that any earrings have been removed ready for their lessons. If earrings can't be removed, please ensure your child brings some plasters with them to place over their earrings for safety.
Homework will be given out on a Thursday and must be returned by Tuesday.
I hope you all had a wonderful half-term holiday and all rested and ready to start a brand new half term. We have got some exciting new topics, some amazing WOW days and trips and going to have lots of smiles, learning and memories made in the run up to the Christmas break!
This half term will, once again, be full of exciting learning opportunities. I hope you are all ready for our amazing topics this half term...I'm really looking forward to teaching them! Our new Geography topic will see the children learning all about the volcanoes with our learning question 'What Makes The Earth Angry?'. In our science lessons, we will be continuing our topic which is still learning about light and shadows with our focus question 'How Far Can You Throw Your Shadow?'.
We will also be participating in lots of events and occasions like Commando Joe Week, Assessment Week, Anti-Bullying Week and Children In Need. We will also have exciting days like our volcanic eruption WOW afternoon, going to the Pantomime to watch Aladdin and participating in lots and lots of Christmas activities throughout December!

WHISPER - Anonymous Reporting Tool
Sometimes it is really hard to tell an adult if you feel like you are being bullied. That is why we have subscribed to WHISPER. It is an anonymous reporting tool which allows you or your child to report any incidents of bullying and cyber bullying in confidence.
Click on the web link below to fill in a report. It will then be emailed to Miss Hughes (Online Safety Coordinator). Messages are checked as often as possible. In order to resolve issues effectively and promptly, please include your name. This will be kept in the strictest of confidence.
If you have any concerns or worries about your child regarding online safety and would like further advice, please contact Miss Hughes or Mr Lyons, the school's online safety co-ordinators or speak to Mrs Dainty, Headteacher.
