Welcome to Class 3!

         Staff in Class 3:

Miss Hargreaves will be your child’s class teacher, supported by Mrs Cutler. Mrs Walton will teach our class on Friday mornings to cover Miss Hargreaves.


Things to bring to school:

  • PE days will be every Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure that children come to school wearing their PE kit on these days.
  • Each day, your child will read in school for 15 minutes. We will also aim for your child to read to an adult at least once a week. Please ensure that books and reading records come into school daily. Your child's reading records contain their passwords for Showbie, Spelling Frame, NUMBOTS and TT Rockstars. 
  • On Showbie you will find that the Year 3 knowledge organisers have been uploaded. These will inform you of what your child will be learning each half term so please do access the Knowledge Organiser folder for your information throughout the year. 


Home Learning

  • Spelling tests will be held every Monday morning and the children will receive their new spellings for the next week on the same day. Children are expected to practise their spellings at home, whether that be via Spelling Frame or using other methods that work best for you and your child. Your child will receive ten spellings each week, eight of which will follow a particular spelling pattern/rule, the other 2 word will be from either the Year 3/4 statutory list or high frequency words.
  • Reading
  • As per our school’s homework policy, your child is expected to read daily at home. Although it is common for children in Year 3 to be able to read with more independence, we do ask that you still make time to listen to your child read each week and record this within their reading record. Children who are reading books from the Accelerated Reader selection will be able to quiz in school or at home via the link on Showbie.
  • Your child also needs to complete their TT Rockstars homework each week for every Tuesday morning. Children who do not manage to complete their weekly 25 minutes will receive help at Homework Club at lunchtime. The new TT Rockstars homework is set on a Tuesday afternoon to be completed for the following Tuesday morning.
  • Take a look at some of the book on the Year 3 recommended reading list below:


I hope that you find the above information useful, however if you do have any questions please do ask. If you need discuss something in further detail please feel free to contact me via the school office to arrange to meet at a suitable time. I would politely ask that this not be arranged on a morning as they can be a little hectic and the children will be starting their morning maths straight away.

I thank you for your support and cooperation,

Miss Hargreaves
