Year 3: Dahl Class

Welcome to Year 3's Class Page!


Staff: Mr McDade and Mrs Walker


Hello Year 3 and welcome back to school! I hope you all have had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year! Mrs Walker and I are extremely pleased to announce, that Year Three have completed their first school term with an excellent work ethic, much enthusiasm and great resilience. As we begin our second term in 2019, we hope to see the high expectations we have already set ourselves maintained.


Crosby Hall

Year 3's residential trip to Crosby Hall will take place on Wednesday 24th of April until Friday 26th of April 2019. Crosby Hall is an amazing centre with lots of activities, such as orienteering, rafting and zip-lining. Please bring the reply slip and deposit back by Monday 5th of November 2018. We really hope all the children can make it! Crosby Hall website link below.



Reading is a a major focus for Year 3 this year, both inside school and outside of it. Home reading is expected to be done by all children every night, and we ask that their reading diaries are signed and returned to school the following day so that we can confirm that the children are reading outside of the classroom.



Homework is due in every Wednesday unless otherwise stated. It is critically important that you help your children to complete their homework as independently as possible. Also it would really benefit Year 3 pupils if you would Test their specific times tables and spellings daily.



Fruit is on sale every morning on the KS2 yard at 20p per fruit.

School dinners are priced at £2.00 per day, or £10.00 for a full week.



Our P.E days are Wednesday with Miss Lee. All children are expected to have a correct P.E kit in school on these days. Their P.E kits must consist of a plain white t-shirt, navy shorts and black pumps.



Additionally, in Year 3, we have swimming sessions each Thursday morning and children will require a swimming kit, a towel and swimming caps (if your child has long hair). Goggles can be worn, although the children are encouraged to try to swim without these. Stud earrings must be removed.



As Year 3 are now in KS2 it is important to remember that they wear a school tie everyday.


I am always available to speak to parents/carers briefly in the morning. However, if a longer discussion is needed, a meeting can be arranged at a mutually convenient time. 


Remember to keep checking this page for updates and photographs of all the exciting activities and learning that will be occurring in Year 3 this year!
