Year 3 - Zebra & Giraffe

Welcome to Year 3

The teachers are Mrs. Hogben, supported by Mrs. Watson and Heather Ashman in Giraffe Class and Mrs. Griffiths, supported by Mrs. Clarke and Mrs. Smurthwaite in Zebra Class. 


We have lots of exciting activities planned for this year starting with a trip to the Kent Museum of Life for an Anglo-Saxon day which we will be sending a letter home about soon. Forest School will also be happening in Term 1 and again, a letter will be sent home informing you of dates and suitable clothing needed.


The children will need their indoor PE kits (blue shorts, white T-shirt, plimsolls) on Wednesdays and outdoor Games kits (preferably trainers and warm top/bottoms for colder months) on Mondays. These can be left in school on their pegs. Please can we ask that all long hair is tied up and earrings are removed or covered with earing tape on PE days.


The children are welcome to bring in fruit for morning play as fruit is not provided for children in Key Stage 2. 


We look forward to working with you to enable your child to achieve their full potential and have a successful year in Year 3.
