Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

We look forward to working alongside you in what we hope will be an exciting and successful year for your child.

There are two classes in year 3. Your child will be in class ET/AD with Miss Davies (Mon-Tues) and Mrs Thomas (Wed-Fri) or in class KO with Mrs Owen.

Our teaching assistants are Mrs Thornton and Mrs Jewell

Weekly Timetable

Children will have homework set on a Friday afternoon and we expect it to be completed and submitted in class on a Wednesday. We will be uploading homework on the website and send home a copy in your child’s homework book. Spellings for the week will also be uploaded to the school website for parents and children to access and practice at home. They will begin practicing the week’s spellings within class on a Monday and tested on a Friday.

P.E for both classes is with Mr Perez and Miss Smith. The children need to have their  P.E kit in school for this.

Mrs Owen’s class P.E. = Tuesday

Miss Davies/Mrs Thomas’ class P.E. = Thursday

We use Class Dojo to let parents know how when their children receive praise for something they have done in school. This could include:

  • Sensible behaviour
  • Excellent effort
  • Kindness
  • Great work

Once you have downloaded the Class Dojo app and inputted the unique code for your child you will receive alerts when your child has earned a ‘dojo’. This can really help reinforce the praise that we are giving at school as well as being a useful reminder when children say they can’t remember what happened at school.

Please note that we are not using all of the features of Class Dojo at Muxton. We will continue to use the year group email addresses for communication with teachers so please do not use the messaging section of Class Dojo as this will not be monitored.

Do let us know if you need any help with setting up Class Dojo on your device. We will be happy to help! Download it for Apple or Android here.
