Gazelle Class - Year Three

Hello everyone and welcome to Gazelle Class,

My name is Mrs Johnson and I am the Gazelle Class teacher this year. It has been lovely to see all of your smiling faces as you walk through the classroom door and we have all made a really positive start to the new academic year. Mrs Perrigo will start to teach the class on Wednesday part of Friday morning.

I love to read and to find out more about the past so I'm really excited about our first history topic and can't wait to start exploring Ancient Egypt with you all. 

If you have any questions or concerns please do contact me via the class email address Year3@st-edmunds-pri.wilts.sch.uk. I will endeavour to reply to you as soon as I am able to do so. 

Mrs Johnson

Please ensure you have read, signed and returned the new Home School Agreement and Positive Behaviour Policy.



Reading Books

Each child will be given 2 books to take home and read on a Monday. Books bags should be brought into school on a Friday to enable us to quarantine any books before resending them out the following week. This will enable the rereading of books to develop fluency and comprehension and will enable us to manage any risks associated with Covid-19. When reading with an adult in school, we will be using school books and keeping a separate reading record. Children therefore only need to bring their book bags to school on a Friday.

Spelling Homework

Every child will be given a Spelling Home Learning Book. Spellings are set each week and will be tested every FRIDAY. Any spelling homework should be completed with the learning book being returned to school in the book bag. I will be awarding house points for any spelling homework that has been completed.


PE will take place on a Monday and Friday and will take place outside whenever possible. Please send your child to school in their PE kits on these days. They will wear their PE clothes all day. In line with school policy, earrings must be removed for PE lessons.


How much did the Ancient Egyptians achieve?

We will be travelling back over 4,000 years to visit the world of Ancient Egypt. Take a look at the knowledge organiser to find out more...

In Science we will be investigating 'Light'

Here is a knowledge organiser to help you think about this unit of work.
