Year 3 - Parks Class

Welcome to Parks Class


Our Class teacher is Miss McCue and our LSA is Mrs Bykowska


This term our learning journey in History is The Roman Empire, Africa and volcanoes in Geography, rocks in Science, and eating healthily and knowing where our food comes from in Design and Technology.


During our class novel time we will be reading a range of exciting books and the children will have the opportunity to vote for their class novels, which will be shared as a whole class.


Please ensure zippy wallets come into school with the children every day. 


Monday – Spelling test 

Wednesday – Spellings set and homework set. 

Thursday – PE day. Please remember to come to school in your PE kit including jogging bottoms.   


In Year 3 we don’t have a specific day for show and tell, however if the children receive something they are very proud of or have something that is linked to our learning they are very welcome to bring this into school and we will share as a class.

Things that help us learn

We use Mathletics to support children’s home learning and we will be continuing to use Google Classroom as our online learning platform in Key Stage 2. Reading books are sent home on a weekly basis which are pitched at your child’s current reading ability. Weekly spellings are sent home to consolidate the SPaG rules the children have been learning that week.
