Year 3O

Class 3O

Welcome to Y3O's class pages 2020-2021


Dear Parents/Guardians,


We would like to offer you and your child an incredibly warm welcome to Year 3 and an even warmer welcome back to school since lockdown. We are certain that the past six months have been a challenge in many ways, but hopefully in between home-schooling and working from home, you have made lots of lovely memories together. We are enjoying settling into our new class. The children have already begun to form friendships and set new goals, creating an encouraging team of learners. We are looking forward to teaching and guiding them throughout this year. We will work hard and make sure we have lots of fun along the way and having a strong relationship between home and school will lead to a rewarding year for us all, but especially your wonderful children.


It is an exciting year for your children as they continue their journey through school and move into Key Stage Two. We are pleased to have Mrs Edwards and Mrs Wagner in our year group bubble, who will be helping us on our learning journey this year. 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.

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. Together, we have devised a set of class rules that are displayed in our classroom.


Throughout the year, lots of new and exciting learning will take place. 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. Now more than ever, a little and often approach to practising spellings, times tables as well as reading and discussing books will have such a powerful impact on making long lasting connections and giving your child the comfort and reassurance that they may need.


The start and end of the school day can be very busy and not usually ideal for discussing any questions or concerns. It would be appreciated if you could send an email to your child's class email address if you have any concerns. This will help us give it the full time and attention that it needs.


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. 

We work hard but have lots of fun in class 3O and 3W. We look forward to sharing our photographs with you.

Please do not hesitate to speak to us if you have any questions throughout the year, 


Miss Ollerton & Miss Williams

Things to remember:

~ Your child will be given a new reading book to take home every Monday. They will need to return this on Friday. 

~ In class 3O, we will be taking part in PE on Monday and Thursday each week. Your child should bring shorts/ jogging bottoms, a white t-shirt and pumps/trainers. 

~Each child has been given a username and password for the website Purple Mash. I will set '2do's' on Purple Mash for your child to complete on a regular basis. Some of the tasks will be repeated. For example, times tables and spelling.
