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.


PE is on Tuesdays and Swimming will be on Fridays in the Autumn term.


Homework is given out on Friday  and is due on Wednesday and will include a maths task,  literacy task and times tables. 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! 


This year, Year 3 will be given a times tables book. Each week we will have a focus times table that we will be practicing. Our target multiplication tables are  x3, x4 and x 8 times tables in addition to the ones learnt in KS1.  Practise at home every night and have an adult sign your times tables book. Times tables will be tested on Fridays. 


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

 Please ensure that you have your spelling record, reading record and times tables book with you every day to school.

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.
