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. Mrs Weatherspoon is the teacher Monday through to Thursday and Mrs Gyle is here on Fridays. Our teaching assistants are Miss Robinson and Mrs Langley.

Reading books, book bags and diaries

Children are given two reading books on Monday and if they are finished, they are returned on Friday. Please use diaries to communicate to us on how they are getting on. We appreciate you spending time hearing your child read, encouraging them to use expression and talking over the stories and new words. It really helps the children progress with their reading, vocabulary and understanding of texts.

Book bags and diaries should be brought into school on Mondays and Fridays only. Any messages can be sent via the school office by phoning 01661 832581 or emailing Alternatively, you can catch us most mornings. If you require a longer discussion, please let me know and we can organise a slot to chat.

Water bottles

Children bring in water bottles on Mondays, which should be kept in school throughout the week. Please ensure the bottle is clearly named.

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 wellies or sturdy outdoor shoes that are kept in school for these occasions.  


It would be really helpful if children could children bring in PE kits on Monday and take home on Friday. We are very lucky to have our Wednesday PE session delivered by the NUFC Foundation. Everyone loves Mr. Lambert! Mrs Forster currently delivers our second PE lesson on a Tuesday. PE kits should be a white T-shirt and black shorts or jogging bottoms with plimsolls for indoor and trainers (or outdoor shoes) for outdoors. Please ensure that all clothing is named.

Forest School

In Year 3 we have Forest School on Thursday afternoons. Please send children in clothes you don't mind them getting dirty in and any waterproofs they may have. When cold, please bring hats, gloves and scarves and when sunny, don't forget to apply sun cream or bring it in for your child to apply independently.
