Welcome to Class 3's Information Page

Welcome to Class 3's page.  I'm Mr Gordon Leathers and I teach Class 3 with Mrs Thrower and Mrs Dye as my TAs. Please do not hesitate to come and see us after school, or send me a message on Class Dojo if you have any questions or queries.

Please make sure your child has :

  • suitable clothing for the weather; a raincoat, sunhat, hat, scarf and gloves
  • The correct PE kit in school.  Long hair will need to be tied back and earrings removed.  P.E is on a Wednesday and a Thursday.  Please make sure that all items of clothing are clearly labelled.
  • Your child needs their own named plastic water bottle to keep in class, which they can access and top up during the day. They may also wish to bring a healthy snack for morning break which they then eat at the beginning of play time.  

The children will be given homework each week that covers :

  • Times Tables
  • Spellings
  • A piece of Maths work
  • A piece of English work
  • A topic piece - which is set over a longer period of time

I expect the children to read at least 3 times a week.  Please listen to your child read as often as you can. Just ten minutes every night can really help your child to progress in their reading. (Even fluent readers may need help with difficult words.  When you have listened to your child, please sign and date the pages read.  Independent readers may complete the reading diary themselves.

One of the important roles in Class 3 is to develop your child's independence. Being ready for lessons with the appropriate equipment is all part of this.
