Class 3

Summer 2024

Welcome back, we hope you have had a wonderful Easter break, we look forward to hearing all about your adventures. We are excited for the term ahead with a packed curriculum, of course, SATS (!), lots of transition and preparation for secondary school, as well as exciting trips to Patterdale Hall and sailing on Ullswater to look forward to.

Our class page on the website will keep you up to date with information, what’s happening in Class 3 and give you a feel for our fabulous children and class.

Homework – will continue to be set on Showbie with Spellings on Spelling Shed. Maths and guided reading are expected to be completed each week – set on a Monday and completed for the following Monday. Please ensure any chapters of the book are read – if reading is not complete it means your child will be behind the rest of the class in the next lesson. The text is set at a level that everyone in the class is able to read it but feel free to read and enjoy it together with your child.

SATS – These take place in the week beginning 13th May. Please ensure your child has a good night’s sleep prior to their tests and a decent breakfast. We know that our children are not shaped by their SATS scores however, we teach them to apply themselves and do their best in all that they do and I’m sure they will make us very proud.

Sports – This term there are lots of sporting events – including our own girls football tournament – it is fabulous to see our children representing school at cricket, football, netball etc and we hope that you will support us in helping us to field teams for these forthcoming competitions. This is also a great time to mix with other pupils children will meet as they move on to secondary school.

Slam poetry/ Author days – We are very lucky that we will all be travelling to Warcop school to work with Slam poetry artist Harry Baker. Following this we will be visiting Morland School to work with and meet author Tom Palmer – I am hoping we will be able to ask parents to help transport to these events so if you are interested, do contact the office. What great opportunities!

Leavers – We have so much going on for our fantastic Year 6 leavers – we will be working extremely hard to prepare for SATS, then our transition includes mental health sessions, talks with UCC and QEGS, moving-up day in July, a visit to Patterdale Hall with a chance to meet other children from the area who are going to the same school and much more. We will be finishing with an exciting Leavers play performance on 16th and 17th July and finally a leavers assembly and BBQ on Friday 19th July.

If you have any concerns or questions about school or your child, please contact us directly on one of the following email addresses and we will do our best to support you.


Children will also continue to have access to our new learning platform Click View – links will be posted within Showbie and children will have a login – this is where some of their homework and classroom content can be found. It is a safe place with video content so it is a good alternative to a platform such as ‘You Tube’ as it is vetted content without adverts. With your supervision/consent children are welcome to access any of the resources on there as well as content ear-marked for lessons or homework. We feel that this is a very positive and exciting addition to our computing provision. 


If you have any concerns or questions about school or your child, please contact us directly on one of the following email addresses and we will do our best to support you.


We are all looking forward to another term filled with learning and laughter.
