Class 3


Welcome to Class 3's Page!

We are a fantastic, fun and friendly bunch of Year 3 and Year 4 children, who love learning and work extremely hard to be the very best that we can be! Our class teacher is Miss Mayo and our two terrific teaching assistants are Miss Smith and Mrs Groves.

On this page, you will be able to find out about all of the exciting things that we have been getting up to as well as being able to access useful information and dates.

Useful Information

We have adapted our daily school timetable to incorporate distancing guidelines and government advice. C3's timetables can be accessed here: Timetable

PE in Class 3 takes place on a Wednesday and Friday afternoon. We hope swimming lessons will re-commence in the near future, although, in the meantime, it is worth ensuring your child has a full swimming kit ready. More information can be found here: Uniform and Kits

Class 3 have a spelling test every Thursday afternoon. Children will then be given new spellings to learn over the course of the following week. We understand that some spellings can be tricky to learn so it is important to practice regularly and look out for the patterns that can help you! When children reach 150 correct spellings, they will receive an exciting treat! The Year 3/4 Statutory Spelling list can be accessed here: Spellings

Reading is a regular and enjoyable part of our day in Class 3 and it is fantastic to see so many children reading at home too! There is an expectation in KS2 that children are reading at least three times per week, signed by an adult at home. All children have a Reading Bookmark in the back of their homework diaries - for every read at home (signed by a grown-up), children will receive a star. When children have collected 15 and 30 stars, they will be rewarded!

In June 2021, Year 4 children will be sitting a new Times Tables test. We have daily practice in Class 3 but it is encouraged that children also practice at home. There are many fantastic websites and apps to use but we love using 'Hit the Button' in Class 3, which can be accessed here: Hit the Button

Autumn 1 Homework

A paper copy of this half term's Creative Homework has been sent home but if it has been misplaced, please find it here: Nottingham Homework

 Below are some of our Homework Superstars - take a look at their brilliant work!


Super Science 

This half term in our Science lessons, we are learning all about 'Sound'. We have had lots of fun already by investigating how sounds travel and how we can change the pitch of sounds. Last week, we investigated tuning forks and described what we could see when we put them into water! This week, we played some different instruments, including the Piano and a Xylophone, to experiment with pitch - we had a great time making lots of different sounds!


Terrific Topic

Our Topic for this half term is all about 'Our Local Area'. We have been discussing the different places we have visited in Nottingham and learning all about the tales of Robin Hood and his Merry Men! We worked so hard this week to plot some popular places in Nottingham onto a 'map' using co-ordinates - it was very tricky but we produced some impressive work!

Class 3 have settled in beautifully over the first few weeks of term. If you would like to access any transition information or activities, please click here: Class 3 Transition Information

Changing year groups and classes can be a stressful time so wellbeing is very important to us. I will regularly update this section with mindfulness activities to help your child feel calm about the transition.
