Welcome to Year Three - Chestnut Class

Welcome to Chestnut Class with Mrs Smith. This year we are lucky enough to have Mrs Wilson supporting us.

Our topic this term is Ancient Egyptians, where we will be exploring the life of Pharaohs and looking into what Egypt was like at the time. Please see topic map underneath for further information.


I would greatly appreciate any help from home. It is really important that your child continues to read to an adult at home for at least 10 minutes every day and that this is recorded in their reading records. Having the opportunity to discuss what they have read will really support your child’s comprehension and inference skills and deepen their understanding of language. Children will be developing their times tables knowledge especially, 3’s, 4’s and 8’s, therefore chanting at home will be beneficial.


Homework will be set on a Friday and needs to be returned before the following Wednesday. The children will receive one piece of maths and one piece of literacy every week to reinforce our class learning. Those who do not complete it will need to complete their homework at lunchtime. Alongside this the children will receive weekly spellings which they will be tested on each week.


Please can you ensure your child has a full named P.E kit in school every day. The children will be doing P.E on Monday and Tuesday afternoons with Mr Hosier however this may change from time to time so it is important that your child has their P.E kit in school all the time.


I look forward to sharing your child’s successes with you this year, of which I’m sure there’ll be many!

Thank you,

 Mrs Smith
