Welcome to Bakewell Class


Our teacher is Miss McKirdy. Miss Stockdale is our teaching assistant. 

We are an enthusiastic, determined class of year 3 children who try our hardest in every subject.

Our topic is ‘Tomb Raiders'.

The questions we will be answering are:

Where is Egypt? What is mummification? How important was the River Nile to Ancient Egyptians? How was death celebrated? 

In English, our topic is based around the book 'adventure stories' based on the video of Tadeo Jones.  We will improve our vocabulary by using figurative language. Look at the Lower School newsletter for information about the other subjects and our homework project. 

In maths, we will cover place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, mass, volume and capacity.

Remember to practise your times tables by beating Siri or Alexa.  Get your parents to ask Siri/ Alexa a multiplication fact and see if you can answer quicker. We now have a times tables rocket in class. What letter are you on?

We LOVE reading and have already read these books.



We are currently reading:

We had a fantastic day when the storyteller, Gav, came in. We listened to the story of Merlin (or Mervin) and the dragon. 


  • Our P.E. days are on Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Please label all P.E. kit so it doesn’t get lost.  (White t-shirt, navy or black shorts or long bottoms and a navy or grey long-sleeved top.)


 If you have any questions, please feel free to come in and speak to Miss McKirdy.
