Year 3@Hewish 2017-18

Giving advice!  Here are the Year 3 crew giving advice to ‘Ted’ from The Stone Mouse.  Should he come clean and be honest with Elly, or should he deny all knowledge?  Some brilliant and inventive ideas to support the amazing writing that I have seen this week.

Week 3


Last week we sent out a letter about our forthcoming school trip into Weston and to make this happen we need your help!  To support the Year 3 crew I need adults to come along with us and enjoy the day.  It is on Thursday 28th September.  Please let me or any of the Year 3 teaching crew know if you can help ASAP – thank you!

If you didn’t receive a letter about the trip, please let me know and I will make sure one comes home with your child.

This week’s spellings have been stuck into partnership books, and this week we will are focusing on: hey, they, obey, grey, whey, survey, convey, disobey, purvey.

Thank you for all your support with reading with your children.  They LOVE being listened to and it is making a real difference to their reading and their confidence – keep doing it, it works!

Until next week.

Week 2

I was lovely to meet some of you on Friday after school, thank you for your time.  If you couldn’t make it, I am more than happy to see you for a chat about your child/school .  Just put a note in your child’s Partnership Book or leave a note with the office and I will get in touch.

There will a spelling list put in Partnership Books every week, we will be working on these spellings (not just these!) all week.  This weeks words are:

eight, eighth, eighty, weight, neighbour, vein, veil, beige, sleigh, freight.

Please keep reading with your child, I cannot stress how beneficial this is to them – little and often, ask them questions about what they are reading too.

I will be updating this page later on in the week, but until then.


Swimming Update

Year 3 swimming starts on Monday 18th September and will until 4th December.  Please make sure your child has appropriate swimming kit with them.  If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask me or any member of the Year 3 teaching Crew.


Well here we are again, September and a new term, new year dawns.  The Year 3 Teaching crew are very excited to get going again, we hope you have all had a relaxing break over the summer.

The Year 3 teaching crew are: Mrs Barker (full time class teacher), and Ms Hookham (LSA am every day).  Are learning theme for this first part of the year is…

‘What made Weston super?’

We really hope that some of you have put your ideas onto paper and we can share these during our first week.

This page will be updated weekly either by myself (Mrs Barker) or the children themselves.  If there is anything you would like to have a chat about at any time, please catch me at the start/end of the day and we can take it from there.

I am looking forward to the privilege that is teaching your wonderful children this year and I am sure we will make some marvelous memories along the way.
