Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


We have two Year 3 classes:


Class 9: Miss Kathryn Jones is the teacher

Class 10: Mrs Ruth Williams is the teacher, also Deputy Head 


Both classes are supported by a dedicated team of teaching assistants.

We have been looking at the Nativity Story and empathising with how Mary and Joseph might have felt. The incredibly kind-hearted Year 3 children decided that they didn't want people to feel scared and worried like Mary and Joseph did when they had nowhere to stay. So we have been on a mission this week to fight homelessness. We have been in contact with the Share Shop, a local charity who care for the homeless, and they are over the moon that we have such kind and considerate children who want to help.


The Share Shop is desperate for some items, which could really go a long way to helping the local homeless people this Christmas. These include:

- Jogging Bottoms

- Trainers

- Hoodies

- T-Shirts

- Sleeping Bags

- Coats

- Gloves

- Chocolate

- Non perishable food


The children have made posters to show you how we can help. We would appreciate any donations to be brought into school by next Friday 17th December so that these can be quarantined before being taken to the Share Shop in the last week of term.


NB: The clothing does not need to be new. The Share Shop is more than happy to accept clothing that has been used but is in a good condition.


The children didn't want to just stop there!!!! They have also written a Christmas song to raise money for the Share Shop. This will be sent out early next week with a JustGiving page attached. Any donation would be so kindly appreciated and, as the children have been saying, 'every penny counts'.


Thank you for taking the time to read about our mission. We hope that you can join us in our fight to spread extra kindness this Christmas.


Wishing you a very Merry Christmas from Year 3 x


Nativity Play


We are going to perform a simple Nativity play, record it and send it to you to watch at home. The children have been allocated a part - totally randomly and fairly. 


They will be either a Donkey, a Villager, Mary, Joseph or the Innkeeper.


If possible, could you gather together a very simple costume?


For example, if they are:

1. Donkey - Brown, grey, or black t shirt or donkey costume.

2. Villager/Innkeeper - Old large shirt, necktie, belt.

3. Mary - Blue dress

4. Joseph - Same as the villager with tea-towel and tie for head.


Boys can wear trousers and girls can wear trousers or leggings.


Could these please be brought into school on Wednesday 8th or Thursday 9th December at the latest in a labelled bag. Any problems let us know as we have got a few bits and bobs in school that we can use.


We will be going to Church to record the play on Monday 13th so can you ensure that your child has a warm coat as it is sometimes chilly in Church.


The children have been given their part this week. It is very simple. Could you please help them to learn it. 


Many Thanks,


The Year 3 Team
