Year 3 Turtles

Dear Sea Turtles Class,


You are a very special class,

And you should truly know,

I loved to have you in my care,

Even though…

It was a lot less than a year!!!


Please come back to visit me,

As through the years you go,

Stand beside the door and wave,

But remember - to socially behave!


Try very hard to learn,

Year 4 will be full of fun,

Reading, writing, maths and housework,

That your parents helped you to overturn!


Know one thing for sure –

Soon, these days will be,


But you will still be here!

Overriding memories,

Of Year 3 Turtles won!

Monday 20th July: IT'S PARTY TIME!


At Singlewell, we usually celebrate the end of the school year with a class party. Unfortunately, we are unable to do this together as a class this year, however it doesn’t mean you can’t have a celebratory party of your own with family.


You have all continued to work incredibly hard, trying your best in this tricky time and we want you to know how proud we are of you all


Below you will find a selection of ideas to help get your party started. We would love to see any photos you take so do email them over to your teacher!


Please use the link below to complete the parent survey to assist us with the children's return to school in September.

A welcome message from your new teacher in September...

Working hard in Geography, PSHE, writing and much more!

Baking, garden designing, beautiful pebble art, science experiments, emoji creating, creative writing and a wonderful rainbow salad!

Dear Turtles,

I hope you are all continuing to keep well.  I’m well although I am a little sleep deprived because…my family and I have a puppy now!  His name is Vinnie and he is a 10 week old cockapoo who needs a lot of attention (including through the night)!!  I haven’t had a pet before, yet alone a puppy, so I am learning an abundance of new things that I didn’t know before.  Did you know that chocolate and chives are poisonous to dogs? 

My perfectly organised and sparkling clean home is changing by the day into a messy puppy-proof play pad and he is taking control of our home and our hearts…


As you can see in the photo, he has met our class mascot but I haven’t given him permission to touch Timmy the Turtle as I fear he may get a little boisterous with him!  I have been wondering what they might get up to when they are good friends…

‘The Adventures of Vinnie and Timmy’…  One late spring morning, I noticed a faint sound in the corner of my crate.  A sort of shuffling.  Startled, I sat up and squeezed my button nose through the divider in my cosy bedroom.  I used some of my 300 million nose receptors to awaken my sense of smell as my brain buzzed with all the things that Mrs Jandu had socialised me to recognise so far.  This was a familiar scent and most exciting but what exactly was it?  The blanket bopped up and down when all of a sudden…

What might happen next?


I really enjoyed contacting you via your parents.  If your parents haven’t already been in touch please ask them to write to with some of the home learning you have been doing.

Have an active and creative half-term.  Take advantage of your time at home by making a start on 50 things to do before you’re 11¾… (See the picture below).


Best wishes,

Mrs Jandu 


P.S Well done to all our Turtle Superstars for being so brave.  I really miss you and cannot wait to see you all again.  Love from Mrs DuPlessis xxxx

Hello Turtles! 


I hope you are all keeping happy and healthy.  It's good for your brains and bodies to keep busy and to rest too - I am trying my best to work, rest and play equally! Hopefully, you are enjoying doing a little bit of the work that myself and Miss Furzer have planned on our website...  When I Clap for Carers on Thursday evenings, I think of you all clapping too (hope you go straight to bed afterwards!) and when I go out for my daily walk, I look at all the rainbow art and wonder what your windows look like.  

I have lots of rainbow art up on my windows but these are my favourite! They are Rainbow Care Bears and I stuck them up in my Study because they cheer me up when I’m working!  I love seeing people’s reactions when they walk past too... 


Take Care,

Mrs Jandu and Mrs DuPlessis
