Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


Here you will be able to find out about the projects and activities Year 3 have been working on recently.

The children are settling well into year 3.  

As the children enter KS2 we will support them in becoming more independent. In order to help with this we would be grateful for your assistance with the following.
·         Book bags
Due to limited space in the cloakroom we ask that children continue to use their book bags for their reading books, reading records and letters. Book bags will be kept in the children’s trays. Please try to remember to listen to your child read daily and write in their reading record book as they can earn certificates. There is no space in the cloakroom for large bags or holdals particularly when the weather gets cooler.
·         Water bottles
Please ensure that your child brings a water bottle into school every day. This should be plain, still water please not squash or fizzy water.
·         Snacks
Please provide your child with a healthy snack to enjoy at playtime.
·         PE kits and jewellery
PE kits are kept in the classroom. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school every day as sometimes PE lessons can be changed due to extreme weather etc. Regulations require all children to remove all jewellery for PE. If your child is unable to remove jewellery themselves please ensure that they do not wear it on PE days. Mr Neal’s class have PE on Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Smith’s class on Wednesday and Friday. Please teach your child to tie their ties and shoelaces.
·         Homework
Homework is given out every Thursday and handed in on Tuesday. Please encourage your child to complete the English and Maths activities (spellings need to be practised daily). If for any reason your child cannot complete their homework we are available on Monday lunchtimes to support your child.

Year 3 and 4 Production.


The production this year is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The children who have speaking parts will bring their scripts home on Friday 9th February so that they can start learning their words over the half term break. Costume letters will be sent after half term. 


There will be no formal homework set for half term but try to keep reading and practising times tables


Enjoy the half term break.
