Welcome To Our Class Page
In the links above you will find out all about the exciting learning that is yet to come this half term! Please have a browse.
Below you will find important information regarding your child's PE time slot and information on reading.
At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- A weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within Year 3! Enjoy!
Every child in Year 3 will have a reading book and we encourage them to read with an adult at home. We will visit the library weekly and children will bring home their choice of a library book. Please ensure that their reading books and reading records are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week. Every time a child reads with an adult, they will receive a stamp on their reading chart, which will earn them certificates and book prizes.
Year 3 will have PE once a week, however, the day may change. Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school every day. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.
We were thrilled to take part in Potato Print Publishing's flagship project, working with schools to help all children become published authors! We had great fun creating our books; we discussed characters, themes, settings, plot twists and more! We have enjoyed sharing our books in-class and now, they are available to buy! You can purchase either a digital or printed copy of the book. Our book is available on the following link:
Here is a preview of the book our class made:
