We are 3C!
Welcome to 3C. Our class teacher is Ms Catchpole and our learning support assistant is Mr Molyneux.
In 3C, we love learning and adopt a growth mindset; always trying the best that we can. We respect each other, we love to laugh and we are quick to say sorry if we make a mistake.
We have PE on Wednesdays and Thursdays with Mr McGoverin and Ms Catchpole. Full PE Kit must be brought in a bag on these days- white top, black/blue shorts or tracksuit bottoms and trainers.
Handwriting & Spelling
At the beginning of each half-term, children are sent home with a spelling and handwriting booklet. There is a list of spellings to practise each week, which will be tested on a Fridays.
Children should also complete their handwriting sheet each week. If you would like further handwriting sheets, do ask Ms Catchpole.
*If children have high-frequency words in the back of their pack, these should also be practised regularly.

We love reading in 3C! Not only does reading help develop our language and communication skills, but it also inspires creativity, improves focus and reduce stress.
Children read regularly through daily reading sessions, English lessons, 1:1 reading and when researching topics such as the Romans or the Human Body! We are currently really enjoying our class novel- 'The Infinite'.
Reading for a short time each night with your child will really help them make the best progress possible. Children should bring in their bookbag and reading record daily for the teacher to see.
