Beckingham Primary School

Class 3

Welcome to Class Three!

We are a mixed Year Five and Six class and our class is taught by Miss. Thorpe. Mrs. Story provides PPA cover on a Monday and Wednesday afternoon, and Mrs. James is our teaching assistant on Thursday afternoons. 

Helpful Information


Each week, the children have two PE sessions, one on Monday and one on Wednesday. Please ensure that children come to school dressed in their PE kits on these days, with extra layers for the cold weather.

The children will need to wear footwear suitable for outside, should they need to be on the playground or the playing field. 



The expectation for homework in class three, is that children will spend up to 30 minutes completing a set task every week, in addition to practicing their spellings and times tables. 

Homework will be set on a Tuesday and will be due in the following Monday. 

Spellings with practice games and linked sessions are on 'Spelling Shed'.

Logins for these & the times tables Rockstars are provided for your child - please see their planner for this.



It is an expectation that all children will read at home at least three times a week and that their reading diary will be signed. The infographic below details some of the ways in which sharing a book benefits both children and their grown ups. 

Our school library is well stocked with an exciting variety of books; additionally, Class Three has a bookshelf of texts recommended by BPS staff, a collection of newspapers and magazines aimed at children aged 9-11 and a selection of non-fiction texts based on our current learning. 

In Class Three, we have nominated 'reading champions' who will be happy to help children choose from the library. We are also very lucky that Mr Phillips and Miss Thorpe are both avid readers of children's literature and will always welcome some book talk and recommend some great texts.
