Welcome to Candytuft Class!

Year 3

Picture 1



Welcome to our class page. I am Miss Berrington and I am really enjoying teaching year 3 again this year. As well as teaching, my other passions include Derby County, Great British bake off and Strictly! I am thoroughly enjoying our buildings topic and children have really embraced it....


During this half term, we will turn our attention the the origins of Long Eaton and what we can find out about Long Eaton's past by studying local buildings. We will investigate our oldest buildings and begin to look at how the town began to evolve from a small farming community into a Victorian boom town with the introduction of the cotton and lace mills. 



I will continue to check planners on Friday, so please leave us a note if you wish.  Spag homework and My maths will be given out on alternate Fridays. Children will be given a slip for their diary each week so they know which homework they have.   



Spelling tests will continue to take place every Friday after the first week. 10 random spellings will be tested each week from the year 3 list. Our objective is that children will begin to internalise the spellings they need to know, rather than just learn a new list each week for a test. I am really pleased to say that the spelling scores have massively improved since the beginning of the year. If children continue to gain full marks, they will be given different challenges to complete until the new list begins after Christmas. 


For more up to date information and to keep up with the action, please look at our class dojo...


Candytuft Updates...

We have been crafting away this week, getting ready for our Christmas Bazaar next Friday. The children are really looking forward to it. They have started to make their pom poms today, so fingers crossed they will work! Thank you so much to those of you who have sent in ticket money, we will get those out to you early next week.
