Year Three

Welcome to Year 3


Welcome back to your last half term of Y3! We hope that you all had a lovely half term and made the most of the glorious weather. 


Each week there will be daily English and Maths lessons. English lessons include; reading, spellings, comprehension, handwriting and PaG (punctuation and grammar) which will be taught separately. Maths will involve the children working on a range of mathematical skills. The learning of times tables is an important part of this development – using the school-purchased app TT Rockstars along with any other support you can offer at home would be greatly appreciated. This half term we will be focusing our learning on History, DT, Computing, Science, RE and PSHE - please see the topic overview for more specific details about the areas that we will be covering.

Maths and English Targets

The Year 3 children have Maths and English targets which they are working on. These were on their latest reports that were sent home. Please ask your child their current targets as they should know them.



This will be set on a Friday to be returned by the following Wednesday at the latest, please. Spellings to be learned will be given on a Thursday and included in their homework folders. The children must learn their spellings for the following Wednesday. 

TTRockstars, Prodigy, and Spelling Shed are all available for the children to use at home - they have their usernames and passwords on their bookmarks.


Reading Books 

Reading books will be changed as and when required if your child is a free reader. Those children who are reading books from the reading scheme will have their books changed twice a week on a Monday and Friday. We encourage the children to become independent with their reading and for them to keep a record of what they have read at home if this is not a school book.


Reading Area

We have a dedicated reading area in class.  The reading area has a wide selection of magazines, fiction, and non-fiction books. 


Before/After School

At the beginning of the school day, before registration (8.45 – 8.55), the children will have different maths, reading and writing activities to complete throughout the year. 

At the end of each school day (3.15 pm) the children will be dismissed from the playground (to the right of the MUGA).


General Reminders

Our timetabled PE slot will be Tuesday for this half term - PE kit should include a white T-shirt, black/blue shorts/sports trousers and suitable trainers. Please remove jewellery, including earrings before coming to school. 

The children must also bring in their own water bottle from home. 



Please feel free to message me using Dojo messages if there are any problems or alternatively to make an appointment to discuss things with us further.
