Welcome to Year 3
Mrs Walker and Mrs Scott
We would like to say a HUGE welcome back to school and to Year 3.
It has been a long time since you were in school and Mrs Scott and I would like to reassure you that we are here to help you settle back into school life, following all the new rules and routines with a smile!
Please look through our webpage as it has lots of information about our learning, what we are up to and photographs of our work.
If you need to get in touch with me, please email me on:

We do not have a test.
Get Epic - Reading at home.
I will be assigning books for you to read at home.
Login into www.getepic.com/student
Use our class code: qda5124
I have assigned some books based on our English topic theme - Robots!
Please go to assigned books to read through them.
There are also lots more titles and interests for your child to look through.
Please enjoy reading and sharing some of these books at home.
Unfortunately, since June, Epic have changed the way that we can access the website, which makes it a little more restrictive than we are used to. The two ways that can Epic can be used are listed below:
- During school with Epic School: From 7am to 4pm local time M-F, students can log in from anywhere using their class code and read for as long as they want between 7am to 4pm. Educators can access Epic School at any time or day. Epic School is always free for our educators
- After school with Epic Free: In addition to all the reading time that they get with Epic School, students can also read after-school or after 4pm local time, M-F, for free on Epic Free. Epic Free is also available for students to access at any time on the weekends. But unlike Epic School, there is a time duration limit! Students can read on Epic Free for up to 2 hours per week.
- Also, students will need their parents’ help to unlock Epic Free with a parent email. Parents only need to provide their email address once during sign-up. After that, students can freely access Epic Free using your class code. They will transition between Epic School and Epic Free, depending on the time of day.
This means that unfortunately, some of the books assigned to your Epic School account, may not be available on Epic Free. However, all of the books assigned for the most recent homework tasks are available. Click on the mailbox icon in the top right hand corner to find all of the assigned texts.
