Beech Class (Year 3)


Welcome to Beech Class

Hello, and welcome to our class web page. We can’t wait to meet you all in September, and are looking forward to working on all our exciting topics with you. Our teachers are Mrs Peatman (Monday-Wednesday) and Mrs Hathaway (Thursday-Friday), supported by  Mr Hartley and Mrs Durant.

Keep an eye on this page over the summer as we will update it with some fun things for you to try at home.

Online Safety Message

If you are searching online for anything over the summer please remember to include ‘child’, ‘children’ or ‘kids’ in your search. This will help to filter out any adult/unsuitable content.

Don’t forget…

Always remember what KS says: If you have ‘yukky feelings’, then Say NO, Walk Away and Tell a Trusted Adult. The same rules apply online as in real life. Ask an adult if you are unsure about ANYTHING online. Make good, sensible choices and ask for help if something goes wrong.

We would always urge parents to carefully monitor what their child is accessing online. All links and videos provided are checked by staff to ensure their suitability, however links and suggestions will not have been. Please ensure your child is safe when accessing online material.



During your time in Year 3 we look at lots of different books together, but it would be fantastic if you keep reading over the summer. There are so many amazing books to choose from.

Why not have a go at this reading bingo. It would be great to see if you can tick them all off over the summer and come back to school with a Full House! We have some certificates ready for the ones who manage to fill in all the boxes or complete a line. Don’t forget parents, you can share some pictures to on our twitter page too.

Summer Activities

Have you ever rolled down a hill or looked up at the clouds? Well the National Trust has a great list of fun things to do that you could try out over the Summer. Click here to find 50 things to do from the National Trust

Fancy taking a trip to the National Gallery? If you click on this link           you can take a tour around from your own home! I wonder which painting is your favourite? I wonder why you like that one the best? Maybe you could find some things out about the artist, recreate the paining or create your own painting in their style. We would love to see them if you do.

Beamish is one of my favourite museums. Click this link to have a look at the museum from your own home.

Science experiments are so much fun. If you click this link it will take you to the Glasgow Science Centre where there are lots of great experiments you can have a go at at home. If you have a go at any, maybe you could take some pictures or write down what you found out so you can share it with us all in September.


The world

Our first topic when we start back in September is the World. We are going to be looking at some different countries from around the world. We would love to know what your favourite holiday has ever been. Maybe you could bring in some pictures, create a poster, write a recount or  create a powerpoint to tell us about your favourite holiday. It can be from any where in the world, even here in the UK. We would love to share some of your work when you start in year 3!
