Mandela Class


Welcome to Mandela Class' page. I am Ms. Bartley and I have the pleasure to teach Year 3 this year! 


 In Mandela Class, we are also going to read a range of stories which will inspire our writing and cover a range of topics in maths. I can't wait!  I love art and I have plenty of exciting projects in the works for this year linked to our topics, which will also cover geography and history. 


PE is on Tuesdays and Swimming is on Thursdays. Please make sure you have the correct kit every week.


Homework is given out on Friday  and is due on Wednesday and will include a maths and a literacy task. If you have any questions about the homework, please ask me before the due date.


Spellings are given out every Monday and are tested on Friday. Make sure you practise them every day!


Our target multiplication tables are x2, x5, x10, x3 and x4. Practise as often as you can so that you know them by heart. These will be tested regularly.


Read at home every day and have an adult sign your reading record.


I'm available for a chat in the morning and afternoons. Please see me for a chat or if you have any questions or concerns. You can also call the office to speak to me or to set up a meeting.
