3H Miss Holmes

Welcome to Class 3H!


 I hope you have all had a fantastic summer holiday and are ready for your first school term at the juniors!

On this page you will be able to find information about all the work we are doing in school, photographs of the fun we've been having, links to help with your learning and any important letters or information.

This term we are exploring the world with Phileas Fogg. We are using the internet and atlases to find out where different countries are and what it is like there. We are also looking at music, food and dancing from a variety of countries.


If you have any interesting artifacts or stories from different countries and wouldn't mind sharing them with us, then we would be more than happy to talk to you about these. 

   High Five

Year 3 have been set a challenge to read as many times in the Autumn term. The children will earn a special certificate depending on how many times they read.
Platinum – 150 times
Gold – 100 times
Silver – 50 times
Bronze – 25 times
Commended – 10 times
Let’s work together to encourage reading!


As well as this we are encouraging the children to take part in our book bingo, to win lots of exciting prizes. Children need to read a range of text types to create a line or a full house in order to win prizes. A copy of the bingo sheet is attached below.

The children will have been given a homework grid (which is attached below). They are expected to complete at least 2 pieces of homework per half term, which is 4 over the whole term. It is optional as to whether these are spread across the 2 half terms or all 4 are completed in the first term. Of course if the children are enjoying their homework we would encourage them to complete as many as they like.


Each Friday we have a spelling and times table test. We practice the spellings daily in school and you will also recieve a copy of their spellings to help them at home. The children also get a times table sheet that they must complete and bring back to school on Friday.

My Maths

Each Monday My maths homework will be set. The log in's are in the front of the childrens planners and they have until the following Monday to complete this. If they don't have access to a computer there is a homework club on a Monday night and My Maths club at lunch times on a Tuesday and Thursday.

PE and Games

Our timetabled PE day is Thursday (indoor) and our games slot is Friday (outdoor). Children should have black shorts, a white t shirt and plimpsoles for indoor PE and tracksuit bottoms, a white t shirt, jumper and trainers for outdoor PE. All earrings must be taken out and long hair needs to be tied up.

If you have any worries or questions then please come and see me anytime.
