Class 3

A very warm welcome awaits you in Class 3 at St. John’s from our mixed aged class of Year 3 and Year 4 pupils, and their teacher Mrs Watson.

Class 3 is made up of Year 3 and Year 4 and are led by Mrs Watson. Class 3 is supported by Mrs Sparham.

Through vibrant and interesting topics, they improve their basic skills as pupils become more independent and confident learners building their learning power through resilience, reflectiveness, resourcefulness and relationships.

Having mixed age classes is a real bonus for us as it means we can offer challenge to some and a little more support for others where needed.

In Class 3 the Oxford Reading Tree and Project X reading schemes are used to structure their development as critical readers. We aim to change books every Friday.

Guided reading takes place frequently throughout the week with a member of Class 3 staff. Your child will be heard reading every week, but it may during this focus time rather than their home-school reading book.

Spellings are set on a Friday and tested the following Friday.

For your information here is the Class 3 Spring Timetable 2017. Sometimes we may set a half term ‘Passion Project’ as an extra special piece of homework, this can be as creative as you like!

Below you can find Curriculum Overviews for Class 3 called Topic Overviews. These will be added on a half-termly basis. Just click on the title and the pdf should open.
