St. Helen's Primary School




My name is Miss Fawcett and I am excited to be the teacher of Class 4. I am really looking forward to starting our learning journey together this year in Year 3. Working alongside me this year is Miss Stewart and we can’t wait to get started!

Year 3 is a very important year as children transition into Key Stage 2. We will be spending a lot of time building on the skills and knowledge developed during the children's time in Year 2. We will begin to prepare for the end of Year 4 Times Table Check by introducing the 3, 4 and 8 times tables, whilst developing the children's knowledge of 2's, 5's and 10's.

To support with Times Tables knowledge, all children have an individual login for Times Tables Rock Stars. This is available to play on computers, tablets and mobile phones. If you are unsure of your child’s login details, or if you have any questions, then one of the teachers will be available on the playground either before or after school.



Your child will bring home a reading book every day. Please listen to them read and write a comment in their reading record. Both your child's reading record and reading book should be returned to school every morning.



Your child will bring home their weekly spellings on a Monday, focussing on a new spelling rule. The spellings will be made up of a group of up to 20 words. 10 of these will be selected for the spelling test the following Friday. These spelling sheets do not need to be returned to school. 



Your child will bring home maths work on a Monday. This should be completed and returned to school the following Friday.



For PE, children are required to wear shorts, a t-shirt and appropriate footwear. PE kit should not be the t-shirt and/or footwear that the pupils wear to school. Our PE day is a Tuesday.
