Class 4 (Year 3) - Miss Richardson


Welcome to Class 4,

My name is Miss Richardson and I am the teacher of Class 4, working alongside our Teaching Assistant Mrs Woodward. 

It is our priority to ensure your child's safety, promote wellbeing and make learning enjoyable and engaging! We have a range of fun topics ahead of us this year including: The Egyptians in history, States of Matter in science and painting flowers in art. 

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





Your child will bring home a reading book every day. Please listen to them read and make a comment in their reading record. The reading record also has suggested questions that you could ask your child about the book they are reading. Both your child’s reading book and their reading record should be returned to school every morning. 


Your child will bring home spellings on a Friday which will focus on a new spelling rule for the following week. There will be up to 20 words and 10 of them will be selected for the spelling test. Children should practise these spellings each night alongside our spelling lessons in school . Spelling sheets do not need to be returned to school.

Maths and English

Your child will bring home Maths or English work which will consolidate learning from the previous week. This work should be completed and returned to school by the date provided on the top of the worksheet.



Class 4 start the academic year with swimming lessons on a Monday morning as part of their statutory requirement. Your child will need: a swimming costume/swimming shorts (not loose), swimming cap and a towel. Following the completion of this, children will return to normal PE lessons in school. For PE lessons, 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.


I am always available on the playground before and after school, if you have any questions or worries please let me know - Miss Richardson.
