A Message from the Current Year 3
Dear Year 2s,
Welcome to Pound Hill Junior School!
In the school, if you get lost you can ask someone where to go and if you don't know what class to go into they have labels on the glass. Everyone is really friendly and will always help you. My class is called 3SK.
In English you learn about fun books, my favourite book is called Viking Raiders.
I really like the theme days, there are lots of fun things to do! For Circus Day you have to wear colourful clothes. For Recycling Day you do junk modelling and for Viking Day a visitor comes in.
Inside the classrooms, we have bright walls, the one in my classroom is orange. 3DL's wall is purple and 3SB's wall is pink.
We also have two rabbits and a guinea-pigs, also there is a dog called Poppy and you will see her in French.
At the school, we also have the big play equipment which is really fun to play on during break and lunch times.
You will really like it here!
Dear Year 2
Thank you for your questions. I am 8 years old and go to Pound Hill Junior School and I’m in year 3. Let me tell you all about our school and the fun things we do there.
In year 3 we read a new book every term in English and we all have our own journal that we put our work in. We have learnt how to tell the time, to draw and use a bar chart, every morning we do arithmetic and we also practice our times tables. Our science lessons are great fun as we do lots of experiments using different objects like cars, torches and magnets. Art and craft lessons, we get to use water colours for painting and we also made a peg doll that we could take home. There are so many exciting things we do so please don’t be nervous, as there are lots of adults around to help, and of course, lots of children too!
Throughout year 3, we have days that we can dress up. On Circus Day, we could come to school dressed in colourful clothes, the brighter the better, but on recycling day, we had to dress in dark boring clothes, quite a difference. Unfortunately, we couldn’t dress up for Viking Day this year, but hopefully, you will be able to. Also, we have days when the whole school dress up like on Numbers Day and World Book day.
Our classrooms are bright and colourful and display the topic work we have done. At break and lunch time, we are able to play football, four square and use the new play equipment especially practicing on the monkey bars. When the weather is dry we can play on the field too. We are so lucky to have pets in our school. Smoky and Ivy our rabbits and Poppy the school dog who spends a lot of her time in the French Classroom, I do wonder if she barks in French, what do you think?
