Larch Y3

Year 3

 

Mrs Crocker

 

 

 

Autumn Term

Welcome to our class page. We hope you will find it useful and it will let you know what we are currently learning about in school.

Teacher Bio

Hello, my name is Mrs Crocker and I will be teaching Larch class this year. I enjoy reading in my spare time, especially detective and fantasy stories. I also love cross-stitching and Disney! As well as being a mum of three girls, I also have two young, black cats which keep me very busy (they are also named after detectives!).

Miss Fuller will be supporting in Larch full time from September.

 

 

 

Class Routines

Our main classroom door for the start and end of the school day is the Larch playground door.

 

Our regular PE days are as follows:

Outdoor PE - Wednesday

Indoor PE - Friday

On these days children should come to school in PE kit.

 

 

Our regular library days this term will be on a Monday.

On these days children should bring in their library book if they want to swap them. 

 

The Library is also open for Year 3 students during Monday, Wednesday and Friday lunchtimes. 


 

Current Learning:

Writing: We will be learning to plan and write an adventure narrative, with a particular focus on punctuated speech.
