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 Miss O'Sullivan and Miss Tanner.


We can't believe it is already the Summer Term, let's hope the weather starts to show us summer is on it's way! We're sure you will agree that the children were superb in their play of Joseph and his amazing Technicoloured Dreamcoat.

This term we will be learning all about our capital city 'London'.  Our term will culminate with our exciting visit to London (on Tuesday 15th May), where we will actually see the landmarks we have been learning about. We will also visit the Tower of London in preparation for our final topic of the year 'Crime and Punishment'.



 Remember FOXES are FUN, FIT and FOCUSED to learn.


Landmark London, we will be researching the famous landmarks and writing information brochures, as well as developing our story writing skills with our own versions of 'The Queens Hat'



Our games lesson will take place on Wednesday afternoons. The weather is hopefully beginning to warm up so a pair of black shorts and a school P.E. T shirt will be needed as well as a warm jumper for those chilly afternoons.

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.
