Where a great start matters

Class 3

Welcome to Class Three's Webpage!

We are a Key Stage Two class made up of wonderful Year Three, Four and Five children. 

Our Class Teacher is Mr. Brown and our Teaching Assistant is Mrs.Priestley. 

Some Important Information:

  • We have new spellings each term and are taught a spelling rule to practise at home every Monday. We are tested on these words every Friday and our results are recorded in our spelling journals. Please ensure your child has their spelling journal in school on a Friday, 
  • Reading records are checked every Tuesday, we ask that a parent or guardian listens to us read and signs our record at least once a week. Mr  Brown would ideally like you to read at least 3 times a week at home for about 20 mins each time. However, we endeavouring to become independent readers by the time we reach Year 4.  
  • Times tables are tested every Wednesday and the children's results sheets are taken home each week with a target for improvement. 
  • Forest school is with Mrs.Davies every Wednesday-please make sure you have forest school kit and wellies in school at all times. 
  • PE is every Thursday- please ensure you have suitable kit in school at all times. 
  • We are trying a different approach to homework. Please see our Homework books for details. Please let me know your thoughts.
  • Each term we have a learning log focus for the whole term, 

At the bottom of this page you will find some useful documents explaining how you can support your child's learning in class, recommended books for your child's age group and and links to the latest spelling lists:

Autumn Term Topic: Mexico and the Mayan.

As part of our topic, Class 3 visited Cadbury World. A day enjoyed by all! Your children were a delight to be with. During the lunch interval teachers from other schools held our children up as a model of behaviour. I hope some of you enjoyed the chocolate.

Some examples of our Mayan masks. The children are looking forward to sharing our topic work on our open afternoon-Friday 7th December at 2:30

Some examples of our homework so far!
