Hurst Knoll St James'

CE Primary School

Inspiring Faith and Learning for Life


Year 3

Class Teacher: Mrs. Khanum

Teaching Assistants: Mr. Davenport (mornings) and Mrs. Parker (afternoons)


This half term our PE days are Wednesdays and Fridays.

Healthy Snacks

Please bring a healthy snack for break time (10.15 am).  Our mornings are long (9.00 – 12.15) and so a snack at break-time will help with concentration.

Water Bottle

Please bring a reusable water bottle to school.  Children are able to refill these throughout the day.


Tameside Music Service will be visiting on Tuesdays and children will be learning percussion instruments. 

Key Skills

To help children in key skills, it would be helpful if children could practice their key skills at home. Activities include: reading daily (could be a book, magazine, something on a tablet, ipad or kindle), practicing times tables, practicing spellings.  Each child has a login for Spelling Shed and Times Tables Rockstars.  This means that they can practice key skills on a device at home.  Please speak to one of the adults in class if you need any help with accessing any of these resources at home.

Teaching staff

Please see the information below for the teaching staff in Year 3 this year.

It is a pleasure to be working with your child. See this half term's curriculum map and end of year expectations documents below. 

As part of World Animal Day, the Y3 children wrote sentences about why it is important to look after animals and how they can do this. Examples of their work are shown below.
