Year Three 2020 - 2021

Mr Whiteway

Welcome to Year 3's Class Page (2020 - 2021)



Class Teacher - Mr. Whiteway

Teaching Assistant - Mrs. Corless



Each year, we teachers start out so hopeful and excited to begin the new journey with your child. We come in with hopes and dreams of what the year will be like - and all of those visions include good things for your child. Whilst we are willing to put in the effort, the hours, the creativity, the enthusiasm - having your support results in your child's overall success! 



A very big welcome to Year 3's class page.

Our class page is a fantastic way to share our weekly learning experiences with you and celebrate our achievements along the way. Please ensure you take a look at this half term's newsletter, where you can find out about: specific subject content, important diary dates for this half term and general classroom reminders. 

Online Learning

As we have moved to remote learning recently, I wanted to give you some guidance as to how your child submits their work. The work which has been assigned will automatically show up on the children's screens throughout the day, but please ensure you refresh your page regularly for these updates. 

You click the large 'ADD RESPONSE' button which is in green. To zoom in on your work you can use the magnifying glass in the top left hand corner of your screen. If you want a text box to type in, the large T will let you type or you can use the pens across the bottom. If you need to see your instructions or slides again you can click 'view instructions' at the top of the page (in the middle) When you are happy with your work, click the green tick in the top right hand corner. This submits it to the teacher.

Thank you for your continued support during this time. 


PE kits must be worn on the day of the PE lesson. PE will take place on a Monday.
