Class Three

Dear Parents and Carers, 

Welcome to Class Three! Here, you will find all the information you need about Year Three at Ovingham  CE First School. 

My name is Mrs Weatherspoon and I am your class teacher. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Fuller and for the Autumn Term we have Mr Fox, our teaching student, helping in Year 3 too.

Reading books

On Mondays, children bring their book bags and diaries to school. We use diaries to record progress in reading and to communicate further with families. 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. Book bags come into school again on Fridays to return books and take home another two for the weekend. 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.  


We are very lucky to have our Wednesday PE session delivered by the NUFC Foundation. We ask children to bring in PE kits on Wednesday and take home on Friday. This should be a white T-shirt and black shorts or jogging bottoms with plimsolls for indoor and trainers (or outdoor shoes) for outdoors. In Year 3 we go swimming on Thursdays so please don't forget to bring your kit in on this day!
