Welcome to Year 3


What a great week! We have made BFG-inspired caves (see our twitter) and looked at different ways to add and subtract numbers in maths.

Thank you to everyone who has brought in a glass jar, we will soon be transforming them in our English lessons!

In the above links, you can find this week's spelling homework sheet.


Have a lovely weekend,

Miss Perkins and Mrs Wooldridge



We have sent out a Roman homework 'menu'. Each task is worth a certain amount of points.  Your child's challenge is to achieve at least 20 points...we look forward to seeing what they have done! A copy of the menu can be found in the links on this page.

 General Information

Please note we are now a NUT FREE SCHOOL, so children cannot bring any nut products to school in their packed lunches. We appreciate you co-operation with this.

Dates for your diary:

  • Week commencing Monday 16th October: Parents' Consultation Evenings.
  • Friday 27th October: Break up for half term at 3:15pm.


Miss Perkins teaches in 3P and Mrs. Wooldridge teaches 3W, with teaching assistants Mrs. Dixon and Mrs. Reeve.  On Wednesday afternoons Mrs. Harvey and Mrs. Dixon teach the Year 3 classes.  Mrs. Nicholson teaches in 3W every Monday. 


Children will take part in guided reading activities every day in school, with at least two adult-led sessions a week.  Home readers are free choice and for the children's pleasure and enjoyment. Children can bring in books from home, and are encouraged to independently change their book when needed. Please use the reading diary to let us know how your child is getting on at home.

Home-Learning Tasks

In addition to reading we will send home tasks which support our work in English and Maths or Topic.  We will send home spelling homework each week.

 PE and Forest Schools

Our PE days are Mondays and Thursday.  We plan to get outside as much as possible for PE or activities, such as Golden Mile,  so please could you send in a pair of outside PE shoes/trainers if you haven’t already.  As the weather gets colder you may also wish to send in jogging bottoms and an extra jumper.

Everyday Items

Please bring in bookbags, a water bottle and coat every day.  We will send home book bags each evening.  Children do not need to bring a pencil case, however they may be brought in and can be used for some afternoon activities (and need to be small enough to fit in drawers!).

Medicines and Illness

Please ask at the office if you have any queries regarding medicines or need to update your child’s healthcare plan.  Please remember to leave 48 hours clear of sickness/diarrhoea before returning to school.


As we don't check bookbags, please let your child know if there is a letter or slip that they need to hand to their teacher in the morning.  Thank you.

As always, if you have any queries or concerns please come and talk to us, or send in a note or email to the office.  

                                   Many thanks,

                                             The Year Three Team
