Welcome to our Year 3 class page.
We can't wait to share our joint learning journey with you. Here you will find anything and everything you need to know about Year 3, including pictures and explanations of our learning.
Important Things to Remember:
Home/school diaries and reading books: Please bring these in daily.
Diaries will now only be checked once a week on a Monday, if there is an important message you wish for us to read urgently, please make sure your child brings their diary directly to their teacher or write a separate note.
P.E: Tuesday and Thursday afternoons (apart from the term where swimming takes place, see day below)
Please ensure that your child wear their P.E. kit to school on their P.E. days.
Swimming: Swimming will take place in the Autumn Term on Fridays. Children are required to wear their P.E kits to school and ensure that their swimming kit (swimming caps are to be included in kit) is brought to school.
Mid-morning snack: Pupils in KS2 are allowed to bring in a piece of fruit as a mid-morning snack to eat during playtime or order tuck from our school. Items are toast, bagel or pancake. Please ensure your ParentPay is up to date if your child wishes to order tuck.
Water Bottles: Please encourage your child to bring a named, reusable water bottle to school to drink throughout the day.
Please ensure that your child's uniform is labelled. Items are easily left around the school and are difficult to return if not labelled.
We ask that children read at least 4 times per week.
Please sign your child’s diary to indicate when they have read. On Monday mornings, we will check your child’s diary and stamp the bottom of the page if they have read at least 4 times.
This will then gain them a star on the ‘Reading Road to success’ (which can be found in their reading diary). For every week your child reads at least four times, they will take another step along the road. When they eventually get to the bronze finish line, they will receive a certificate. Their next goal is then silver, where they will receive a special book mark, and then Gold. This is the ultimate goal, where they receive a book token.
Spellings this year are slightly different that have been in previous years. Please refer to the letter sent regarding spellings in Year 3.
Please practise times tables with your child/ren. There are fantastic ways to support your child, particularly using Times Tables Rock Stars (TTRS), a subscription paid for by the school to an app that supports times table recall. Please make the most of this, it's great fun and free for you to use.
Homework books containing optional homework tasks will be sent home at the beginning of each half term; these will all be linked to our topic for this term. We look forward to celebrating the wonderful creations that your children have done at home!
Our first topic is Small Acts, Big Impacts. This topic focuses on recycling and the impacts this has on our planet. We will be exploring some inspirational stories and focusing on the positives that particular individuals have had on our world. Remember to stop by and see our journey through this topic.
