Karslake Class is our Year 3 Class taught by Mr Tonkin with Mrs Varney on hand as the class teaching assistant. Ms Trula joins us on a Monday afternoon to teach our year 3 class Spanish.

Your child will be given opportunities to read individually during the week and will read to a member of staff during guided reading. Children will be responsible for changing and selecting their individual books when necessary. The children are also encouraged to take home a library book. It is expected that the children will read at home at least 5 times per week. Each reading ‘session’ should be for at least 10 minutes and will require an adult signature in the reading record for verification. Reading in Key Stage 2 is vital for your child’s progress; we will be introducing a new reading reward scheme this year.



Homework has been designed to support your child’s learning and will mainly consist of:

  • Times tables
  • Spellings
  • Occasional extra tasks linked to our unit.

In addition to this the children will have a weekly spelling test on Fridays.
