The Year 3 staff would like to welcome you  to our year group page. We hope that you find this page useful.

Mrs Hardwick 3R

Our TAs - Mrs Abberley and Mrs Beckwith

PPA Staff-  Mrs Brabbin, Mrs Hawthorn and Burton Albion coaches.

A typical week in year three is action packed and full of fun.

To stop your teachers feeling glum.

Take a peek at the list below.

Then we will all be ready to go.

Monday - Outdoor games kit and reading book please.

Tuesday - Indoor PE kit and reading book please.

Wednesday - Stationery shop is open (prices up to £1) and reading book please.

Thursday - Outdoor games kit or swimming kit (and waterproof coat), reading book and completed homework please.

Friday- Reading book  and reading record please.


Spellings- A list of words for the half term is given out at the start of each half term. 

Reading - Children are expected to read at home at least three times per week.  They can choose a book from home or can take a book from the classroom.  They also have logins to the Bug Club Website where specific books will be allocated to them.  When they have read these books, there are questions for them to answer regarding what they've read.  Please be aware that the teachers can access the children's responses to questions to check for understanding.  Children are given a day for them to change their books each week and we hope they will change them on a weekly basis.

Happy Birthday to us!

WSPS is 50 years old and to celebrate this we are learning all about the village and what it used to be like.  Thank you to everyone who has sent in terrific family learning projects.  We hope to share them over the next few weeks.  There will also be chance to have a look at them on our open day on Saturday 14th October.

We are hoping to take the children out on a learning walk around Stretton on the 19th and 21st September.  If you are able to help please get in touch with us.

Next Half Term Homework

As a family, we want you to collect various natural autumnal objects and create a collage to bring into school by Friday 10th November.  The theme of the collage can be anything, it doesn't have to be autumn.


We are currently reading 'The Twits' by Roald Dahl.  A foul pair of bird bothering humans who are taught a lesson!  This story will be the basis of our English work over the next few weeks followed by work on Anthony Browne an amazing story writer and illustrator.


We will be starting our work on Pre-historic Britain after half term and are hoping to have a visitor from the Stone Age..... Watch this space.
