Hello and welcome to Elm Class - Year 3.

Year 3 is an exciting year at St Anne's and St Joseph's, with the children moving up from Infants and Key Stage 1 and beginning to enjoy the juniors.

I am the class teacher, Mr Blundell, and we are very lucky to have Mrs Moseley as our Teaching Assistant this year. The children all know Mrs Moseley from the infants - and she has been invaluable in supporting their transition into Year 3.

In Maths, we are really keen to consolidate some of those basic skills which underpin so much learning. We will continue to focus on our times tables, place value and gaining a better understanding of number. I am keen to share my love of maths with the children!

As always, reading is very important in Year 3.  We will continue to make time in class for all sorts of reading: guided reading, reading for pleasure, shared reading and teacher reading.  

Throughout the week in all that we do, we will be focusing on kindness. The children are encouraged to always be kind and always be brave.  They should try their best in all that they do, and look after one another. Our classroom is a place of kindness, where the children can have the confidence to try hard and achieve great things!  In Elm Class, anything is possible!

In Year 3, the children also have the opportunity to go swimming.  Again, they are encouraged to take on the challenge and try their best. Swimming is each Friday afternoon throughout Autumn term.

My main means of communication with parents will be through the Class Dojo.  Please do contact me if you have any questions at all.

Year 3 were very excited about their visit from four police officers on Wednesday.  The children had been thinking about people who put others before themselves and wanted to ask the police officers some questions about their jobs.  The children loved talking to the officers and trying on some of their hats and coats.

Thank you, Lancashire Police!
