Welcome to Year 3!
Classes this year are named after inspirational people.
In Year 3, we have decided to adopt a sporting theme.
Colin Jackson class is taught by Mrs Sharif, Mrs Abid and Mrs Oram.
Colin Jackson is a Welsh athlete who specialised in the 110m hurdles. During a career in which he represented Great Britain and Wales, he won an Olympic silver medal, became world champion twice, World indoor champion once, went undefeated at the European Championships for 12 years and was a two-time Commonwealth champion. His world record of 12.91 seconds for the 110m hurdles stood for over a decade and he remains the 60 metres hurdles world record holder
Marcus Rashford class is taught by Miss O'Reilly and Miss Gill.
Marcus Rashford is an English professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Manchester United and the England national team. Rashford scored on his England debut in May 2016, becoming the youngest English player to score in his first senior international match. He played at the UEFA Euro 2016 as the tournament's youngest player, and at the 2018 FIFA World Cup. Recently, he gained recognition for his charitable work, providing food for children in lockdown during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Welcome back to school! We look forward to working hard this term and making outstanding progress.

Homework and Reading
Please read with your child every day for at least 15 minutes and sign the reading record to show that this has been completed. In order to limit the number of times a book travels to different homes, we will be sending 2 books out at a time, once a week. Children will also have the opportunity to borrow a book from the class library to read over the weekend,
Please encourage your child to complete their homework.
This will be sent home every Friday with a set piece of homework to be completed and handed in the following Monday.
Weekly homework will include: spellings, times tables, Maths and English.
Spellings will be sent out every Friday and are to be learnt for our spelling test the following Wednesday.
In year 3, your child will be able to access Times Table Rockstars for additional support with their mental recall.
Your child has been provided with a username and password so they can access this at home. We encourage your child to complete the challenges alongside weekly homework. Times tables will also be tested weekly.
PE for Jackson class is on a Tuesday and Friday.
PE for Rashford class is on a Tuesday and Thursday.
Please make sure your child has their PE kit with them. This includes plain jogging bottoms or shorts, a plain t-shirt or long sleeved top and trainers or pumps.
Indoor shoes are more important than ever in this wet weather. Please could your child have a pair of pumps or other suitable shoes to change into when inside. This protects carpets and gives their feet a chance to dry if their shoes are wet.
