Welcome to Class 3’s page. We are a class of Year 2 and Year 3 children.

Our Teacher is Mr Ford and he is helped by our fantastically creative Teaching Assistant Mrs Davies. We are also helped by our class volunteer, Miss Messenger.

Our class really like going on trips and exploring the world around us, we really enjoy going to Forest Schools at Redwood and playing with our friends. We feel safe in our class because everyone is kind. We are particularly good at writing and maths and like a challenge. Our Year 2 and 3 children go swimming and our Year 3s also learn to play chess.
