Welcome to Year 3!
Miss Francis is the class teacher and Mrs Watson is the teaching assistant. On this page, you will find information about Class Three, news, pictures of things we've done and more.
Arrival and Collection Times
We are continuing to use our one-way system to enter and exit school in September, entering and leaving via their external classroom door.
All children should arrive between 8.45am – 8.55am.
Children in Year R, 1,3, 5 and 6 should be collected at 3.25pm
Children in Year 2 and 4 should be collected at 3.20pm.
Breakfast Club & After School Club
Children in Year R, 1 to 6 should arrive as normal and be taken to Breakfast Club room. They will be taken to their classroom ready for lessons. Breakfast Club will be open from 7.45am. After School Club will be open until 5.45pm.
It would be great if you could provide your child with a small, practical pencil case containing the following equipment:
- Glue stick
- HB pencil
- Pencil sharpener
- Set of colouring pencils
We will provide this equipment where required.
Children in Class 3 will need to ensure that their P.E. Kit is in school on Monday and Wednesday. P.E. kits should consist of:
- Navy shorts.
- School house colour T-shirt (not brightly coloured and / or patterned T-shirts).
- White, navy or grey socks.
- Plimsolls (preferably pull-on style for young children).
- Trainers (for outdoor use only).
- Tracksuit (optional for cold weather).

Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling Homework Books are kept in school bags. You also now have a Spelling Shed login for use to further practise spellings at home.
Spelling Shed - https://www.edshed.com/en-us/Login
Your child's weekly spelling list will be uploaded to Spelling Shed for further practise. Log ins can be found in the front of your child's reading record.
Please use your child’s reading record to keep a record of the books your child reads and to enter a comment about their reading. These may be books they have brought home from school, ones they have borrowed from the library or an e-library book. This record will help us to know what your child can do and inform us about the range of books they have read. We will also write in the record when your child has read in school and provide an appropriate next step for them to practise e.g. a particular tricky word or grapheme.
In Year 3, children continue to learn to write different types of texts and we use model texts to highlight the key features of these texts before children create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 3.

During the year, we will use a range of texts to develop our reading skills and read stories written by a range of authors. The texts we will use are detailed in the document below.
Currently, we are reading 'There's a Pharaoh in our Bath!' by Jeremy Strong.
Our Class Country is Italy.
We will be learning all about Italy. We will investigate where it is in the world and find out facts about what it is like to live in Italy.
