Class 3



Welcome to Class 3!

Class teacher - Mrs Williams

Miss Kenyon (Mondays)


A note from Mrs Williams and Miss Kenyon

 Welcome back, We hope you all had an enjoyable summer!  We are all ready for a new academic year and we begin the year with a positive attitude in Class 3!

I am holding a ‘Meet the Teacher’  evening immediately after school on Thursday  7th September , this will be particularly useful for the Year 3 children’s parents. It will only be short but a good opportunity to ask any questions or raise any concerns.

P.E. We will be having our first P.E. session on Tuesday mornings and a second P.E. lesson will take place on Friday afternoons.  Please send P.E. kits and black pumps into school and trainers are optional for outdoor lessons. Thank you.

Spelling - Your child will be taught spelling daily in class and bring home a pattern / rule to focus on each week. Their understanding will be assessed  each Friday. Each child has a green spelling practice book to be taken home each week.  Spare print outs of each groups spellings are always available in class.

Reading Thank you to so many parents that are supporting your child’s reading at home. Please continue to listen to your child read as often as you can and record this in the blue Reading Record book. Your child will read with me in a focused Guided Reading group on a weekly basis, as well as on a daily basis within lessons. Each child is responsible for changing their own book when needed, within the stage they are on. We are focusing on detailed understanding and comprehension of texts this year so please try to talk about the main events of the story / characters in the book / where the story takes place/ what will happen next etc. Everyone has been allocated a reading book this week.

Times Tables

Please encourage your child to learn their times tables as we practise them every week, they should have a red practice book to complete at home /in school. The children will be given the opportunity to earn certificates as they progress. Please note it is important they understand the related division facts:

So : 2 multiplied by 5 = 10    so      10 divided by 5 = 2. 


Named water bottles and healthy snacks may be bought into school—toast is available for £1.00 a week.

If you have any questions or concerns, I am available to discuss your child’s  academic or social progress – just call into the office to make an appointment or email me   d.williams@burscough.lancs.sch.uk

Thank you, for your continued support,

Mrs Williams / Miss Kenyon

What is Power Maths?

Power Maths is a resource that has been designed for UK schools based on research and extensive experience of teaching and learning around the world and here in the UK. It has been designed to support and challenge all pupils, and is built on the belief that EVERYONE can learn maths successfully.
