3DH - Birch Class - Mr Harney


Welcome to 3DH - Birch Class.  Here are they key details you need to know about your new Year 3 class:

Hello 3dh! Welcome to chesswood!

Hello everyone!

I am so excited to meet all of you and I know we will have a great time working together as a class! Here is a little video telling you a bit about me and what I like in the classroom. I can't wait to hear all about you, so please send in your 'All About Me' sheets! 



Our classroom

Right, so I'm guessing you would like to know what your classroom will look like? Well, you're in luck because I've made a video for you! It looks a little bit different than usual, with less tables and books inside it. Hopefully, when you arrive in September it will be back to its glorious best! Oh, and if anyone knows how to edit videos, you can teach me when we meet in person! Did I mention there's a story on the video too? Well, there is and I hope you enjoy it! 





9.00 - Watch the welcome message from your teacher 

9.30 - Check out the rest of the information on this page - and the FAQ documents if you're still unsure about anything.  Watch the welcome messages from Year 3 children.  Start to complete your All About Me poster.

13.45 - Live chat with your teacher and the year leader. Click this link to view:

Later - Watch Mr Jolley's welcome message and presentation about Chesswood (they will be posted on this page).

Please note - these presentations will now be next week (w/b 6th July).  This is to enable us time to make sure we can safely follow the government guidance that is due to be updated at the end of this week, so we give all parents and children a clear picture of what school will be like in September.  Apologies for any inconvenience this causes.

How do I get to my classroom?




Where do I go on the first day in September?

We'll film a video and place it here when we have our one way entry system set up - see Mr Jolley's videos for more information!

Who is in this class?

This is a list of all the children in 3DH. We will all get to know each other very well. We work as a class in 3DH. This means being kind and caring to our classmates and helping each other when we need it. Everyone is welcome and everyone will play their part in making 3DH a kind and caring place to learn. I can't wait!

Parents - Top tips from Mr Quick:

  • Don't buy socks that are too big - they need to be correct sizes now
  • It would be a good idea to get initials printed on the PE top and shorts (if they get lost they will be easier to return to your child) 
  • Trainers any sensible trainer is fine - colour doesn't matter, but please not plimsolls. 

Children - It's a good idea to get used to getting changed for PE and back into your uniform before you start in September - click this picture for some helpful tips:
