3 – Nightingales

Hello and welcome to class 3 we are called Nightingales and we are year 1 and year 2. 

My name is Mrs Usher. I am very excited about all of the fun learning we are going to be doing in class 3! 


We will begin the term with a focus on a whole class story and we will be doing lots of work on cooperation, friendship, kindness and how we can work together as a team. Let’s hope this year is full of laughs, smiles and lots of learning so we can have a fantastic year!


Our exciting topics this year include….


Autumn 1 – History of Nottingham

Autumn 2- Local Geography – Nottingham

Spring 1- Toys – Past and Present 

Spring 2- UK Countries, capitals and seas 

Summer 1- The Great Fire of London

Summer 2- Hot and Cold Places 

PE days will be Tuesday and Friday so don’t forget to come in your PE kit on those days.

Planners will be checked on a Monday for the previous week, so please remember to read and write in them 5 times.

I am really looking forward to all of our new topics, WOW days and the fun we will have! The WOW days include, being outlaws, toys, baking and food tasting, visits to Arnold and the library.


In Key Stage One, we have a dedicated team of amazing teaching assistants.  Mrs Baxter, Mrs Garden and Miss Spencer work in all three classes supporting with English, RWI and maths. In the afternoons, they do intervention work and Miss Spencer also leads our brilliant forest school sessions. 


In my spare time I love to be creative, cooking and sewing.  I love to read (especially in the sun) and am always on the look out for new stories to share.  I can also be found shopping and going for a coffee or lunch.
