Browne Class Year 3

Welcome to Browne Class!

 

Welcome to Year 3! Please explore our class webpage to see all the exciting things you will be learning in Year 3 this year. 

 

Mrs Pier will be teaching Science throughout this year and has lots of fun practical learning activities planned. In Term 3, we are looking forward to finding out more about animals and humans. This ties in with our Geography topic about climates too!

 

PE will be taught on a Friday Morning by Miss Bracken so ensure trainers are sent in on this day. Long hair should be tied up and earrings removed or covered. 

 

We encourage daily reading at home - please sign the homework diaries and make a note of the page number too. Homework will be sent home on a Friday and collected the following Thursday.

 

We are really excited about our term ahead! Please come and have a chat about any concerns at the end of the day - we are happy to help.

 

Miss King and Miss Leadbeater

We are looking for volunteers to help with reading this term.

 

We would love some parent volunteers to hear readers for an afternoon or morning each week until Easter. No experience necessary and everyone welcome!

 

Please have a chat with Mrs Kennedy or your class teacher, if interested.

 

Mrs Ashford

Well done Yr3 for being the first class in the whole school to get 100% attendance this week! Miss King and Miss Leadbeater are so proud of you, keep it up!

 Hi Year 3,
