Ash and Willow

It brings us great pleasure to welcome you to Year 3’s class page!

We have two Year 3 classes; Ash and Willow class. In Ash class we have Mrs Tahir as the class teacher and in Willow class we have Miss Yousef as the class teacher. Mrs Bibi is the SNA in Willow class.

We are really looking forward to this year and hope that the children will enjoy the teaching, learning and the range of exciting topics we have prepared for them.

We aim to make learning fun and focused for all children. We encourage children to become independent learners through the different activities prepared for them in the school day.  

To find out what we are learning this year click on the links above to find our Long term and Medium terms plans for each half term.


PE – This half term PE will be on Mondays for both classes.

Bookbags – Any work, letters and books that are taken from school should be kept in book bags.

Homework – Every Friday children will be set one piece of homework that is expected to come back the following Thursday. If there are any parts of the homework children find difficult please do not hesitate to contact the Year 3 teachers.

Watch this space for all the exciting learning that will take place.

Kind regards,

The children and the Year 3 team!

Autumn Term


Once upon a time, there lived an old, kind woman called Lady Tramine and she lived with her evil, young daughter called Cinderella who was very bossy and lazy. She made the kind mother do all the chores and made her very very upset! “Why do they make my life miserable?” whispered the Stepmother. She lived in a gigantic mansion and had to do all the chores at least twice.
