Year 3 (Hughes) 2022 - 2023

Miss Kinniburgh

Mr Meredith

Welcome to the Year 3 Hughes class page! Here you will find important information about our class.

Miss Kinniburgh and Mr Meredith are the teachers in Hughes class and our TA is Mrs Charlish.  Miss Kinniburgh teaches Monday - Wednesday and Mr Meredith teaches the class on Thursday mornings and all day Friday. Mrs Sheen and Mrs Charlish take the class on Tuesday afternoons for Miss Kinniburgh's PPA time.


The children will have daily reading lessons, along with their daily phonics sessions, to develop their decoding and fluency skills as they become reader. This will mean that your child will not bring home a reading book to practice reading to you, until they have finished the relevant learning in school (this usually takes around 3-5 days).  They will, however, be bringing home a ‘Reading for Pleasure’ book to share with you.  We now have a wide range of non-fiction, poetry, picture, and chapter books for the children to select from.  These quality texts are to foster a love of reading and the children are encouraged to select from a range of titles to help develop their vocabulary and comprehension.  These books are not for the children to read independently, as they could be beyond their reading capabilities at present.  These are for you to read together and to enjoy. Once the children are ready to bring home their Read Write Inc book, they should be able to read the book confidently to you: accurately, fluently and with expression.  They will also bring home a ‘Bookbag Book’, which is an unfamiliar book, but very similar to the Read Write Inc book they have been reading in class.  This gives the children an opportunity to practice what they have learnt in a different context. Going forward, the children will change the Read Write Inc books and Bookbag books with their teacher during a reading lesson.  They will be given a set day to change their ‘Reading for Pleasure’ book, and this will be written on the inside of their reading diary. All reading, whether shared or phonics (Read, Write Inc) should be recorded in your child’s reading diary. Please remember home reading does not only include school reading books - encouraging children to read a selection of different text types, including comics, magazines, leaflets, non-fiction books will help to develop breadth and variety in their reading.

PE Kits

Hughes class have their PE on Thursday afternoons. This is with Miss White and Mrs Charlish. Please ensure your children come into school in appropriate, PE kit depending on the weather. Please ensure any jumpers/hoodies are clearly named.

Water bottles

Please send your child in to school with a named water bottle. These will be accessible in the classroom throughout the day to allow your child to stay hydrated, especially on warm days.

Please do not hesitate to contact your child's teachers if there is anything you would like support or assistance with.
