Hello! Please regularly check our class page to keep updated with any new information you may need to be aware of.
Hello my name is Miss Walsh and I'm the Year 3 class teacher. In Year 3 we have Mrs Melia supporting learning. We are both so thrilled for this year and can't wait for all the fun learning we have planned.
Our motto in Year 3 is:
YEAR 3 IT'S UP TO ME!
This is a motto we use in class regularly to encourage children's independence skills now that they are in Key Stage 2.

Spelling - Fridays
Spellings to be given out on Friday and tested on the following Friday morning. Children will write their weekly spellings in their reading record to practise at home and I will also display them on the class page and in our classroom. Please encourage your child to practise their spellings at home in a random order, as they will not be read in order in our weekly spelling test.
Your child will bring home multiple reading books every Tuesday and they should be handed back into school and changed for new books on the following Tuesday. We will still be listening to children read daily. Please sign your child's reading record regularly, it is greatly appreciated.
PE - Tuesdays
Our PE lessons will be held outdoors for the foreseeable, therefore please make sure your child arrives at school in appropriate PE wear.
If you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to speak to me as soon as you can. If you need to inform me of some information please leave a note in your child's reading record for me to view. However, I will be unable to write back in your child's diary so if a reply is needed please contact the school office to pass a message onto me and I will contact you.
