Year 3

Welcome to Year 3.




Hello. I am Miss Taylor and I am the Year Three teacher at Fairmeadows. I love teaching! I cannot wait for a fun-filled year at school. I am thoroughly enthusiastic and motivated in creating a learning environment, which is built on trust, independence, respect, a love for learning and most importantly a lot of fun!


Outside of school, I love spending time with my family and friends, reading, listening to music and eating tasty food.


Mrs Corten will be working with us this year.




Key Information

  • Please bring your child's labelled book bag into school every day.
  • Please bring a named water bottle. This must contain only water.
  • Year 3 are allowed to bring in healthy snacks (fruit/vegetables) as snack.
  • Please only wear stud earrings at school and on PE days it helps if the children do not wear them.
  • Come to school in PE kit on Monday and Thursday each week. 
  • Please communicate with the office using Parent mail and contact Mrs Corten or myself through Seesaw.





Reading - Children should read every day and bring their reading books daily. This is the most important way you can support your child with learning at home. Evidence of reading should be uploaded to Seesaw and added to the reading at home file, the staff can help you with this if you get stuck!  


Spellings - We will be sending home a list of spellings that we are using each week in our lessons. This is for your information. The children will be assessed at the end of every half term in school.


Time Tables - Time Tables Rockstars should also be used daily to help children maintain their time table knowledge for at least 10 minutes.


Mathletics - Each week we will award a Mathletics champion in the class for the child with the most points that week. 


Essentials - Each week, a knowledge organiser will be shared for the following week's essentials sessions. Please read these and talk about what you already know.


Learning Powers 


Our learning powers run throughout school and underpin the core values we work to and hope to develop in the children. 


The Learning Powers are: 


  1. Enjoy Learning 
  2. Have A Go
  3. Concentrate
  4. Keep trying
  5. Be Cooperative
  6. Use Your Imagination
  7. Be Curious
  8. Keep Improving


These Powers underpin our curriculum aims and develop growth-mind-set. They also provide our children with the right start preparing for life outside beyond Fairmeadows.




Forest Schools

Forest School is an inspirational process that offers ALL learners regular opportunities to achieve and develop confidence and self-esteem through hands-on learning experiences in our very own woodland and natural environment. Children we have a session each week for the whole year.


Year 3 will be doing Forest School on Thursdays, beginning 14/09/23. They can do this in their PE kit as PE also falls on a Thursday, please just bring alternative footwear.




Please see a list of clothing for your child's sessions.
