Class of 2021-2022

It is my absolute pleasure to welcome both children and parents to class 3W.  I, Miss White, am the class teacher and I am thrilled to be supported by Mrs Leyland. We also have the privilege of being joined by Miss Fort, who will be supporting us on Monday mornings and teaching in class on Thursday mornings.


The 3W staff have a very exciting year planned and are very much looking forward to completing our team on Thursday 2nd September when we finally get to meet you all!

  • Every day - Reading book to be taken home and reading record to be signed by adult when some reading has taken place. Please ensure reading book and reading record are brought back every morning.

Curriculum Clouds

Home Learning (in the event of isolation)


Please see the curriculum cloud above to view our units of work this term. You will find an abundance of ready-made lessons provided by Oak National Academy across all subjects and year groups here: 


For Maths, White Rose provide home learning videos linked to our current teaching here:


Children will also benefit from accessing TTRockstars, DoodleMaths, Purple Mash and Karate Cats at home. Your children should know how to find these and have their log in details (Karate Cats does not require log-in details).
