Foxes (19/20)

Welcome to Foxes!

We are really looking forward to a year of fun, friendship and great learning.


 We are a fantastic group of Year 3 children.

Our Teacher is Mrs Bellis and our Learning Support Assistant (LSA) is the lovely Mrs Pennock.

Mrs Bellis' planning, preparation and assessment time (PPA) is on Thursday afternoons. During this time Foxes will be taught by Mrs Slater.


Welcome to a new school year. We are very excited to be beginning year 3 with a fascinating topic all about The Ancient Egyptians. Our topic is called 'Tomb Raiders'. Ask your child what they have learnt so far.




 Remember FOXES are FUN, FIT and FOCUSED to learn.




Our games lesson will take place on Thursday afternoons. Please make sure you have suitable school shorts, T shirt and trainers. As the weather becomes colder please ensure you have a warm tracksuit.

PE will be on Tuesday 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 do collect the reading diaries in weekly to keep a check on your reading. Remember when you have your reading record signed at least 4 times in a week, to show you have read, a 'Super Reader' badge will be sent home via Marvellous Me.

We will also be sending home spelling patterns to practise as well as times tables. This term we will be learning our 10x, 2x and 5x tables forwards, backwards and inside out! In the Spring Term we will concentrate on our 3x and 4x tables and then in the Summer Term it will be time to learn our 6x and 8x tables.

Remember you can practise them using J2E Blast and Top Marks web sites.


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, or draw a picture 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.
