Year 3



Welcome to Year 3!


Hello everyone! 

I hope you are excited for this half term. We are going to have so much fun!


Class Routines


Your child will learn at least 10 new spellings on a weekly basis. The spellings chosen for the week come from the Year 3 and 4 Statutory Spellings list (see below) and from their topics.Year 3 Spelling List 



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.



Spelling and Timetables Homework will be handed out on a Monday and will be due in on the following Monday in preparation for their tests. 


Topic Homework will be set on Friday and due in on Monday 


Your child will be sent home with a homework book, so please ensure they bring it into school on Thursday so that they can be marked and ready for the next homework. 


Our PE days this term are Monday (indoor) and Fridays (outdoor.) Your children will need to be 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. 



Miss Jefford



Please ensure that the correct uniform is worn to school each day and have your child's name in (ties, jumpers, cardigans) so they do not get lost.


Your child should either wear school shoes or all black 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.
