WELCOME TO CLASS 3 (Year 2 and Year 3)


2023 - 2024

We are really looking forward to welcoming you into our class. We have lots of exciting learning planned for you while you are in our class. We can’t wait to get started!

 Meet your teachers


Mrs Crossland

Hello Class 3, I’m Mrs Crossland and I can’t wait to meet you all in September ready to start a new adventure together. My favourite thing to do is spending time with my family; we enjoy being outdoors and exploring the local countryside. In my spare time I enjoy baking, going to the theatre and reading. I’m going to challenge myself to read more than 30 books once we start back at school in September. Maybe we can do the challenge together as a class, what do you think?


What will we be learning?

We will send home a topic plan of our learning for each half term. We will share this with you on Dojo. We have some exciting topics to learn about this year, we are looking forward to taking you an exciting learning journey! We will also be sharing lots of different stories, non-fiction texts and poems. Can you recommend any that you think we would enjoy reading?

Our Science topics will be slightly different and we will learn about those in separate year groups. Year 2 children you will be learning about living things and their habitats, plants, animals including humans and everyday materials.

Year 3 children you will be learning about plants, animals including humans, rocks, light, forces and magnets. We will also be able to do scientific investigations to use lots of our scientific skills.
