Year 3 (Class 8)
Welcome to Class 8
Hello Year 3 children, parents and carers,
Welcome to the Juniors for the year 2020 – 2021. We are very excited to have you all back and we are looking forward to getting back to school life together. Year 3 can be a big transition from the infants but we will be here to help and support you every step of the way.
Please follow us on Twitter @SMAAAClass8 for up to date information and to see lots of exciting learning happening in year 3.
At St Michael and All Angels School we are a Christian Community where everybody is valued and recognised for their unique contribution. We provide a child-centred education in a positive learning environment in which all children may reach their full potential. The Gospel values of love and respect are at the heart of our partnership with parents and carers, Governors, the parish and wider community.

***Competition – W/C 21st September***
Hi everyone, Can we ask you to spare a few minutes? We are doing a school competition this week to see which class can get the most responses to our Mission Statement input. The class with the most responses will receive a special movie afternoon next week 🎥🎬 All you have to do is click the link, answer a few questions and then click submit. At SMAAA we value your input 😇
Our class reward system is Class Dojos. Children can earn them for having a positive attitude towards their work, effort, a high standard of work, teamwork, caring for others, challenging themselves and many more. Children will be rewarded with prizes / certificates. However, class dojos can also be lost for unacceptable behaviour, lack of homework etc.
Once completed, children will bring home the results of their year 1/2 common exception words test to learn the spellings that they got incorrect. Once confident, children will move onto the year 3/4 common exception words. Children should aim to learn 10 per week using a variety of fun methods such as spellings scribbles, rainbow words, word pyramids, bubble writing etc.
We aim for 100% attendance in every class. We want our children in school each day so that they have every opportunity to learn and develop in order to reach their full potential. Dojos are given each week for 100% attendance.
Children can bring in a healthy snack each day to take onto the playground with them. Good examples are any fruit / vegetables, cheese, toast. Please don’t bring in chocolate bars, biscuits, cereal bars or crisps as SMAAA is a healthy school.
For the time being, children will be eating their lunch in their classroom. Can we ask that the children bring packed lunches into school in a plastic bag so that they can be thrown away after lunch time. Monday – Thursday school will offer a range of sandwiches (ham, cheese, egg and tuna) and on a Friday children will also be able to get fish and chips.
Year 3’s P.E. day is Tuesday each week. Children should come to school in their P.E. kits which should include the following:
– Yellow T shirt
– Royal Blue shorts
– Come with trainers on and track suite bottoms over PE kit
