Class 3D

 

Welcome to our class page, our class teacher is Miss Duckworth. We are looking forward to sharing our journey through year 3  with you and we are currently a class of 29 children. Supporting us throughout the year is Mrs Tighe, Mrs Lee and Mrs Neil. 

 

A little more information about routines in our class: 

Homework is given out on a Monday and is expected to be back in school for Friday. The children will be tested on their spellings every Friday. The books are changed and returned to children on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays so we can check that children are reading regularly. We have PE lessons once a week on Monday, so full kit needs to be in school every Monday.
