Our Class

Our Class 1

Welcome to Foxes!


Welcome to Foxes Class. We are a fantastic group of Year 3 children.

Our Teacher is Mrs Bellis and our HLTA (Higher Level Teaching Assistant) is Mrs Elliott.

Mrs Bellis and Mrs Elliott's planning, preparation and assessment time (PPA) is on Tuesday afternoons. During this time Foxes will be taught by Mrs Helm and Miss Tanner.


Wow our time travelling back with the Ancient Egyptians has flown by! We have now travelled back to the present time and this term our fascinating topic will be; Can you see in the dark?

But first, it's once again, time for the Fantastic year 3 and 4 play, which this year will be 'Joseph and his Technicoloured Dream Coat'. We can't wait to begin rehearsals, our auditions have shown we have many talented and enthusiastic actors, singers and dancers.

Look out for more information and pencil Thursday 8th March into your diary for SHOWTIME!


 Remember FOXES are FUN, FIT and FOCUSED to learn.


Can You See in the Dark? We are lucky enough to have a workshop from a very real scientist Kinetic Kate on Wednesday 7th March to hook us into all things 'light'. We will be learning how we see and hear, as well as spending time investigating light and what it is like when there is no light. 



Our games lesson will take place on Wednesday afternoons. The weather is now pretty cold so we need to ensure we have a warm tracksuit as well as a pair of black shorts and a school P.E. T shirt in school.

PE will be on Friday afternoons and we will need  shorts and a school P.E. T shirt.

It is important that we have the correct, named kit in school at all times.


Home Learning

Please encourage an adult to hear you read every day! We will continue to regularly check reading books and help you to change them when necessary. Please ask your adult to use the reading records to comment on your  reading and for any feedback about your books, reading habits etc.!

We are looking forward to seeing the amazing variety of POWer projects you are working on. Each child needs to complete 5 POWer points with the tasks they choose. This should enable the you to become more involved in your learning due to the homework being child led.


There is still an expectation that you will practise your times tables weekly using RMeasimaths, J2E Blast and Top Marks web sites. We have league tables in class for a 3 websites. How many house points can you earn?


Learning the words on the 3 and 4 spellings list is also important and we will be regularly testing you to see how many you can spell. Travelling to and from school is always a good time for oral practise!


We will also be continuing to practise telling the time so any time spent looking at analogue and digital clocks will be time well spent!

Foxes Out And About
Mr Foxy, our class mascot, will be having an adventure every weekend when he is taken home by one of our class members. Mr Foxy has his own diary where you can write about the adventures you have had with Mr Foxy during the week. The children have been asked to look after Mr Foxy really well! Please remember to write a few sentences about where Mr Foxy has been, and to try and put a photo of you and Mr Foxy, in the special book.

Parent Feedback
If you want to share any positive thoughts about your child's learning and progress then please do! Write it in their reading records and we will endeavour to reply as soon as possible. The same goes for any difficulties that your child may be experiencing. Don't leave it, let us know. It will have a huge impact on your child's learning!

Look on our Year 3 and 4 page to find some cool websites that we will be using in school and you can use for practise at home.
