Welcome to Class Three

Class teacher: Mrs Phillips

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Adams

Reading to your child is extremely beneficial to their learning. Please read daily with your child and sign their reading record book.  Daily reading is essential and discussing the texts with them helps to develop their reading comprehension skills.

Our PE days are Wednesdays and Thursdays.

Homework will be given out on a Friday and will need to be returned the following Wednesday. Please work together to make homework fun but it should be children’s own work.  Children should ensure it is completed to the best of their ability and neatly presented too.

Spellings will be given each week and will need to be returned on Wednesday.  They will be sent out each week and these will be tested on the following Friday.

School uniform including PE kits, coats, outdoor shoes should all be labelled clearly.

Your child will need to bring in a water bottle for school each day.
