Welcome to the Class Page of Year 3!
Autumn Term 2023
Welcome to Year 3 – we look forward to working with you and your child/children this year. Please use our overview below to view our main focuses. PE days this term are: Monday and Friday – please remember to wear the correct PE kit on these days. Mr Brooks will be teaching and Miss Jewitt will cover Mr Brooks’ PPA time on Wednesday afternoon – she will be teaching Art and DT. Mr Fletcher and Mrs Rutherford will be our teaching assistants in the morning, with Mrs Coar and Miss Walwin-Holm working on interventions and with individual children some afternoons.

Please ensure reading diaries are in school each day so we can write in them and update our records. It would also be fantastic if you could recap the x2, x3, x5 and x10 times tables.
We ensure we listen to each child read at least once a week on a 1:1 and an additional time during group guided reading. Please make sure to send in reading books and diaries every day – we also need these to log on to the laptops for our computing lesson. It would also be fantastic if you could sign and note in reading diaries as it really does help us in school.
A big well done to all those children who have finished all the Mathletics tasks set so far. The response has been amazing this week- more tasks have been loaded on for next week (done on Thu 16 Nov) . The next weeks spellings to be tested in class on the 22nd November are listed below.
Thanks, Mr Brooks, Mr Fletcher, Mrs Rutherford and the Y3 team.
