Year 3 - San Francisco Class - Mrs Abbott and Mrs Butson

Welcome to San Francisco Class


Mrs Butson and Mrs Abbott - Class Teacher


We have 16 children in our class. 


Autumn Term


Topic: Dinosaurs and Fossils


This term’s topic is based around dinosaurs. Children will link all areas of their curriculum studies to this science based topic. We will be exploring and expanding our knowledge of dinosaurs.  As part of this topic, we will also delve into a narrative text called ‘Mungo and Dinosaur Island’ and will use computing to present a Mary Anning biography.

Times Tables

Children should be learning their times tables as all children are expected to know each multiplication table (up to 12 x 12) by heart by the time they reach secondary school. We kindly ask that all children practise their times tables regularly at home.


We also ask that all children read regularly. We suggest a minimum of 15 minutes per night. Reading and discussing books each night will help your children to develop the higher order reading skills of comprehension and will help to move their reading forward. Children will then take quizzes using our RENN reading scheme in school.  When children pass quizzes, the word count for the book is accrued and children will receive certificates in celebration assemblies.



Children will engage in PE sessions twice weekly. Some of these sessions will take place in our outdoor environment. Please ensure PE kits are in school every day; children will sometimes engage in additional sport related activities outside of their usual PE slots.
