Welcome to Year 3

Hello, my name is Mr Smit, and I am delighted to be in Swifts! I am a very keen reader of children’s literature and I love to read. I also tell and write stories, especially ones that involve character voices. My favourite activities include watching films, attending my local church, playing and watching football, keeping fit and dancing! As with every class, I expect my students to join me in setting an excellent example to the school by showing our values of love, honesty, and respect.

Hello, my name is Mrs Lockey, and I am teaching Falcons, which is such fun! I love to teach, especially Mathematics.  I am a family person and spend a lot of my free time with my granddaughter. I love baking! I expect my students to always try their best with their work as well as show respect to adults and their peers in school.

Trip Dates

This term the children will be having a workshop about heroes and villains from history on Tuesday 15th November 2022. For this date the children may wear a hero or villain fancy-dress outfit.

PE Day

Falcons and Swifts have their PE day on a Thursday, children are expected to wear a white round neck t-shirt, black shorts or joggers, black trainers or plimsolls. During the winter months of P.E. school cardigans and jumpers can be worn over the top of the t-shirt.

Year 3 Expectations

In Year 3, the children are expected to read every night on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. They then are required to read once between Friday and Sunday. The school is currently in the process of implementing the Accelerated Reader scheme. More information will be communicated later about this.

Children are expected, alongside their weekly spellings every Friday, to learn the times tables shared with them by the class teacher. A times tables test will commence every Friday. Additional mathematical tasks will be available soon on Freckle (a password-protected website).
