Welcome to Y3W's class page 2021-22


Dear Parents/Guardians,


We would like to offer you and your child an incredibly warm welcome to Year 3. We hope you have settled in well. In Year 3, we have high expectations of all of the children, through behaviour and being ready to learn and grow as a team and individuals. We are looking forward to teaching and guiding them throughout the rest of this year. We will work hard and make sure we have lots of fun along the way. Having a strong relationship between home and school will lead to a rewarding year for us all, but especially your wonderful children. I look forward to working with you.


Our classroom is a happy and positive working environment where praise and encouragements are used to motivate and support all of the children. We ask that each child tries their best and develops a resilient attitude towards learning. We value the support you give your child at home with reading, spelling, learning times tables and delving into any topic based research or interests your children may express. 


As a team, we are pleased to have Mrs Edwards and Mrs Fisher working besides us in Year 3.  They have a wealth of experience and skills, which will be used to support children in both Year 3 classes throughout the year.


The Curriculum Overview for learning for the year is shared on this page. It gives a brief outline of the subjects and learning objectives we will teach throughout Year 3. We will continue to update this page periodically, sharing details of our exciting learning experiences and include any useful links to support your child’s learning from home. 


As you can appreciate the start and end of the school day can be very busy.  Therefore, if you have any concerns or enquiries, please email your child’s class teacher or make a telephone appointment with the school office. This will allow us to give you more time for any discussions.

New to our school September 2021


From the beginning of the year, our school implemented a new Behaviour Policy which is built upon the ‘5 pillars of Pivotal Practice’ (‘When Adults Change, Everything Changes’, Paul Dix):


  • Consistent, calm adult behaviour,
  • Relentless Routines,
  • First attention to best conduct,
  • Scripting difficult conversations,
  • Restorative Follow-up.


We have three simple goals: Be safe, Be a Learner, Be Kind and Respectful.

Useful Reminders


Children will have PE on Monday and Thursday. Children should have a full school PE kit. Children can wear blue or black sports pants and trainers for outdoor PE on a Monday.

Children will have weekly homework set through Sumdog; Grammar, Spellings, Maths and Times tables.

We expect our children to be reading daily, either from their home reader or a book of their choice. Reading books will be issued on a Friday.
