Class 3 - Having fun with maths!

A beautiful Christingle Service

What a beautiful occasion this evening!  

Our SING group sang beautifully at Smalley's annual Christingle Service - what a special moment when all the candles were lit and we sang together.

Thank you to all of our families and friends for their support.

Practise using the games to help you learn the spelling and the definition of the word.

Year 3 homework

Each week your child will receive Maths and English homework. The homework will be set to your child's ability and linked to the work the children have been focussing on in class. Please support your child, homework will be given out on a Friday and to be returned on Tuesday.

English silent letters




This afternoon class 3 have made predictions and been experimenting which surface creates the most friction. 



Special Visitors


Last week we welcomed special visitors into school. Members of our “Smalley Old Boys” and representatives from the Richardson Foundation came to school to enjoy lunch in Class 6.  They then met children from Year 5 and 6 and enjoyed a presentation, by the children, of our Remembrance service, which was then aired on the BBC news the very next day. 

It is always a privilege to watch the children and adults sing ‘Abide with me’ together in our school hall.  Welcoming our wider community into school always gives our children a valuable experience and it is greatly appreciated by all of our visitors too. 


Children In Need

Class 3 celebrated Children In Need by getting creative. They made storyboards, drew around their hands and wrote a message in the palms to say what makes them good friend.

What an enjoyable day!
