Mr Evens' Class

Welcome to Year 3!

We are looking forward to having a fantastic year together, in which we create a happy, safe and caring learning environment. If you have any questions, concerns or positive feedback, please speak to me after school or email me on

Please be aware that during the first few weeks of the school year, the class webpage is being created and updated.  If something is incomplete, we are working on adding it as soon as possible.

Please take a look at the Meet the Teacher document below to find a timetable, overview of learning and further important information.

Class Book     

Our class book is The Bear in the Stars by Alexis Snell. Each child will have the opportunity to take it home and make a reflection by drawing or writing in the book journal. I hope you enjoy it!


Our topic for this term is called Day of the Dinosaurs.


Please see the 'jigsaw' planning overviews (attached at the end of this page) to see what we will be learning this term.


A Guided Reading text and prep activity will be sent home every Friday. This will need to be completed over the weekend and brought back into school on Monday, ready for use in class. 

Reading records and any reading books that need changing will need to be brought into school on Tuesday. New books will be issued and sent home on Wednesday. 

To help your child to continue to read every day, we have subscribed as a school to Rising Stars, Reading Planet.
Please log in to to access reading books for your child to read.


By the end of Year 4, children are expected to know all of their times tables up to 12 x 12. As a school, we have subscribed to Times Tables Rockstars and every child will have their own login to access the site. This is an excellent way for children to practise their times tables at home.


Maths Attack will take place every Thursday. Maths Attack levels can be found on our website using the following link:


Our PE days for Term 1 is Tuesdays.  Please ensure children come to school in their PE kits on this day.
