Year 3 Kingfishers Class
 Following the Albourne Way
living life to the full

Welcome to Kingfishers and Year 3.  


The class teacher in Kingfishers is Miss Johanson. Kingfishers have a locker to keep their belongings in – we ask that children only bring small bags/book bags into school each day so that the lockers are not too full!  Children are welcome to bring a snack of fruit, vegetables or cheese for morning playtime and will need to have water bottles in school, as usual.

Our main topic for the Autumn Term is Stone Age to Iron Age.  In history, we consider the key question: What are the similarities and differences between the stone, bronze and iron ages.  In the Spring term, we move on to focus on to the ancient Egyptians and in the Summer term our topic is UK and the South Downs. More detail is available on the curriculum pages of the school website.


One of the exciting things about Year 3 is that we start swimming at Hurst College in the spring and summer terms! Remember to bring in your swimming bags on Wednesdays.


We have high expectations of reading, therefore we encourage every child to read at least 5 times weekly, and ask parents or children to record this in their reading diaries.  We will check the diaries every Monday and each week a child achieves the 5x a week target, a raffle ticket is put in the box ready for the reading challenge assembly.  Tickets are drawn half-termly to see who can choose a ‘Golden Book’.


Homework in Year 3 consists of reading (as above), spellings (weekly) and a topic based task that will cover options from across the curriculum, which is due every half term.


PE is twice a week on a Wednesday (swimming) and Friday. We are trialling the children coming into school in their PE kit on these days.


Copies of our half-termly ‘Ask Me About’ newsletter and our latest homework grid can be found below.
