Class 3 - World Book Day 2022

I hope you all had a lovely Easter Break ! Can I thank everyone who came to see me for Parent’s Evening, it was so lovely to see you  all.  Below is some reminders about this half term...

P.E.  Continues on a  Tuesday morning and a Friday afternoon, please ensure your child has the correct kit and that it is named.

Forest School  Class 3 are visiting Scutcher’s  Acres  for our Forest School sessions beginning next Monday 25th April and again on  9th May, 16th May and 23rd May. Please send your child in with wellies and a waterproof .

Spelling - We are continuing the No Nonsense Spelling Programme which embraces the knowledge of patterns and rules as well as the  learning of spellings from the statutory words, common exceptions and personal spellings.  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 and completed each week. Spare spelling lists for each group are always available in class, please ask your child to pick one up! Alongside this we will be teaching the No Nonsense Grammar Programme.

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.  Each child should also have a Library book  and the opportunity is given once a week for this to be changed.

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. 

If your  child is in Year 4 they will be participating in a National  on-line Times Tables check in June. See separate leaflet.


Named water bottles and healthy snacks may be bought into school—toast is available for 20 pence a day or £1.00 at the beginning of the 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

Roman Fort Excavation Site Visit

Class 3's Visit to the Roman Fort Excavation Site -September 2021   - Class 3 had the wonderful opportunity to visit a nearby Roman Fort Excavation Site today, the most significant Roman discovery for over 100 years! We were shown where the fort had once stood and marked out it's walls. We studied precious artefacts that have been found at the site and heard about the Roman Soldiers that once lived in Burscough, wow! Thank you to Mr. Baldwin for such an inspiring afternoon to kick-start our topic on the Romans. Mrs Williams 🙂
