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.

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!
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!
