Year 3 – Turner – Mrs Shobe/Miss Joyce

Welcome to Turner’s Class page!


General information

Class Teacher: Mrs Shobe/Miss Joyce

Learning Support Assistant: Mrs Wengenmair

Throughout the school reading is highly valued and in Year 3 this this is no exception. We would like to encourage all the children in the school to read but especially those in classes Turner and Millias. Reading is the key! It is a life long skill and will support your children throughout their school education and beyond.


Homework is set half termly and is based around the topic for that time. It will be sent home stuck in a purple book and if you so wish you may then use this book to record your efforts.

Reading, you child will need to be heard read a minimum of ten minutes each day. Please remember to sign the school reading diary.

Spellings, these will be sent home every week and follow the school programme.

X-tables, in year 3 the expectation is that your child should be fluent in 2’s, 5’s and 10’s when they begin the year and by the time they are ready for year 4 this should include, 3’s, 4’s, 6’s, 8’s and 9’s. Your support at home in learning these is invaluable.
