Year Three - Miss McWalters/Miss Frankland

Welcome to 3FM!

Autumn Term 1

A very warm welcome back! We hope you have all had a wonderful summer and had lots of fun. We are all very excited to be back and ready for a fantastic term ahead.


We are amazed by how well the children have settled in already to year 3 and how grown up they all are. They are really impressing us every day. What a fantastic start to the year! 


Thank you to all who have managed to bring in their summer holiday memory boxes. The children have loved sharing them and we have loved seeing and hearing all about your child's summer. It helps us and them to get to know each other better! Thank you for bearing with us while we get through them all! :-)



This year, Miss McWalters will teach on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday morning with Mrs Harrington. Then, Miss Frankland will teach on a Wednesday afternoon onwards with Mrs Preston.


The 3FM team are available to chat with if you have any questions, concerns or messages to pass on. We will do our best to help and work together to make sure your child is happy, healthy and having fun learning. 

Many thanks, 

Miss McWalters and Miss Frankland :-)
