Year 3



Welcome to year 3!


Welcome back! 

I hope you had a lovely break and did lots of fun things, I can't wait to hear about them on Wednesday!

We have all done a fantastic job so far this year, lets keep it up as we enter into the Summer term!

Our PE days are now on a Wednesday (indoor) and Thursday (outdoor), your child will need to wear PE kit on these days.


Class Routines


Spellings will go home on a Wednesday. Your child's spelling books contain the words the children need to learn but it is also where they will do their spelling test, so please ensure the books come back into school every Wednesday. These will be marked and sent home the same day.



Children are expected to read every night. Please record this in the children's reading records so this can be checked by a Year 3 adult. Reading books are changed once a week; currently on a Monday. Please note, they will only be changed if their reading record shows they have read the book.



Homework will be handed out on a Wednesday to be given in by Wednesday. This will include Topic homework and practice on Times Tables Rock Stars.


Our PE days this term are Wednesday and Thursday. Your children will need to come to school in their school PE kit on these days and they must come prepared for all weather. Please label all clothes and shoes.



If you have any questions or concerns at any point please give the school office a call and I will return your call as soon as possible. Alternatively, you can catch me at the door at the start or the end of the day.



Our PE lessons will be every Tuesday (inside) and Thursday (outside).





Please ensure that the correct uniform is worn to school each day and that school shoes are worn, not trainers. The uniform code can be found on the school website, or a copy can be obtained from the school office.


PE kit should consist of a blue t-shirt, navy shorts and trainers. In wet weather, your child may want to have a spare pair of socks, that are different from the ones they wear during the rest of the day. In cold weather, your child may want to wear a tracksuit and also their jumper/cardigan.


Thank you.
