Class Three

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Welcome back to the latter part of Autumn term. It was lovely to see or speak to you and discuss how your child is settling in to Year 3. Everyone has made wonderful progress and I am excited for our run up to Christmas.

We now have Miss Ali as our student teacher and Mrs Ridley as our teaching assistant.

Here are our class details:

Reading books

On Mondays, children bring their books and diaries to school. We use diaries to record progress in reading and to communicate further with families and staff check the diaries every day. Children take two books home to read throughout the week, one is a levelled reading book and one is a book of choice for the class library. We also ask you to help us support which area of reading we are focussing on that week. Further details of this can be found in your child's diary. We really encourage reading at home and are proud of the enjoyment our class take in reading for pleasure. 

Water bottles

Children bring in water bottles on Mondays which are kept in school throughout the week.


Children may bring in a small fruit snack for after break. 

Wellies / outdoor shoes

We are fortunate to have beautiful grounds at Ovingham CE First School and we use them at every possible opportunity, whatever the weather! We ask that children have a pair of labelled wellies or sturdy outdoor shoes that are kept in school for these occasions.  


Our swimming lessons commence on Monday 12th of September and will be ongoing until Monday 12th of December. Children will need their swimming costumes and a towel.

On Wednesdays, children have PE with NUFC.


Spellings will be posted weekly on Spelling Shed and should be practised regularly. Your support in helping your child with this and exploring VIPERs in their reading is greatly appreciated. Times Table Rocks stars is also available to help your child practise multiplication tables. If you need a reminder for passwords for either of these applications then do let us know.
