Year 3

Happy Autumn Break!


We all hope you have a wonderful Autumn break with your families. Remember to play outside, get plenty of fresh air, read lots and stay safe. If you want to start the winter half term with a bronze, silver or even GOLD card, have a go at completing our Autumn Reading Challenge! Don't forget, you can always join and visit Beeston Library for FREE, they have lots of books to help you complete the challenge.


Reading at home!

Whilst you are all at home we would still love to see how much you are reading. Once you have completed some reading, if you write it in your reading diaries as you normally would then you can take a picture and share it with us on the blog!

If you finish your reading book, don't worry, here are some excellent places where you can find some new stories to read:


Happy Reading!





It is now the priority of all staff, to provide daily work for the children via the school website, while the school remains closed. For the remainder of this week activities will be posted on the Year Group class page, Work can be accessed by clicking on the pencil icon above Home Learning.


As from Monday 12th October, those Year groups who have received training and QR codes for Seesaw, will be able to use this learning platform. Unfortunately, not all classes have had this training, as the plan was to roll out the new learning platform by the end of this half term. For reasons of parity, if both classes have not got access to Seesaw, then learning will remain on the website. Thank you for your understanding.

Welcome to Year Three




Mrs Allcoat - Raccoons Class 

Mrs Argent - Raccoons Class

Mr Oakland - Meerkats Class

Welcome to our Year Three information page. Over the year, we will update this page with important information, examples of work and learning that you can do at home to support your child's progress. 


Back to School


We are really looking forward to welcoming Year Three back to school on Wednesday 2nd September. As a reminder, Meerkat and Raccoon classes will be entering and exiting school via the main car park gate, where Mr Hayward-Mitchell will be looking forward to greeting you. 


School will begin at 8:50am and will finish at 3:25pm. 



Meet The Teacher

Below you will find a video of your class teacher welcoming you back to the John Clifford community and explaining some changes around school this year.

We are currently having some technical difficulties with the Meet the Teacher video for Raccoon Class. Our 11 minute video has magically cut down to just 16 seconds for some unknown reason! We apologise and we will try to get this fixed as soon as possible but key information for the short term:


PE will be on Tuesday and Wednesday for both classes in Year 3, please wear PE kit ALL DAY on these days.

Outdoor Learning is for Meerkat Class ONLY this half term, you will need a waterproof coat and wellies for this.


Apologies again, we will try to get this fixed as soon as possible.
