Silkstone Primary School

A School with Soul

Welcome to Class Three 


Welcome to Class 3, where the children will be working with me (Mrs Simon) and Mrs Simmonds.

The most important things that we want for your children are for them to feel happy at school and to help them make the most of their learning, so that they have an enjoyable and successful year.

Each day the children will need their book bag, water bottle (and packed lunch, if required). Also, pupils will need a waterproof coat and suitable footwear for our playtimes on the field.

Our PE day is Thursday, so please make sure kits are in school on that day (suitable for outdoor lessons).

We will make sure that your child has a reading book to enjoy at home and recommend that they read with an adult at least 3 times a week. Please could you record any home reading sessions in their reading record books, to enable us to monitor this in school. Every Friday we will provide a list of spellings to learn at home, ready for a short test the following Friday. We will also be encouraging the children to continue to learn their times tables at home too.

Do make use of the Purple Mash website to support your child’s learning across the curriculum – there are some great activities on there to explore, and we regularly update the ‘To Do’ page with useful resources.

Please feel free to contact us via email or telephone should you have concerns or queries regarding your child.

Warm Regards

Mrs Simon & Mrs Simmonds

We had a fantastic day playing in the snow and meeting Santa and his reindeers.  We were surprised to receive a letter and present from Santa.  Our Christmas lunch was very tasty too.

Birthday Afternoon

We enjoyed celebrating our November birthdays.

Harvest Assembly 

In our Harvest Assembly Year Three are performing a rainbow poem that we created ourselves.  We hope you like it.

Artist Mike Barratt.

We had a super day working with Mike Barratt.  We generated vocabulary linked to togetherness and then created some fabulous arm paintings using inks and acrylics.


Lowry inspired art

In Geography we have been learning about Mega-Cities.  In Art we have been looking at the work of Lowry and his industrial paintings.  We worked together to create some wonderful collages of cities.
