Welcome to Year 3


Year 3 reading book wish list 1

Year 3 reading book wish list 2


Don't forget we are launching our Magic, Mayhem and Mystery Topic on Tuesday 14th January and we would very much like the children to come as a Harry Potter character or wizard of their choice.

As the children have been bringing home their planners, reading books and homework book, please could we remind you to record the reading done at home with your child. We do look at their planners every week. Each week, the children will have stuck in a sheet outlining the week's timetable.

Inside the homework book, you will find a new spelling sheet. We will also now be adding another piece of work linked to our curriculum in school to complete at home. Please make sure you challenge your child, by getting them to put them into interesting sentences, written in their books on the next lined page with neat joined writing.  We would like to see their work, so please ensure it is brought into school at some point next week.

The link above will bring up the spellings, but some children have been given alternative spellings which they should find in their book. They will be tested on the words they have been given. 


Topics for the Spring term

Science: Light, Rocks and Soils

Topic: Magic, Mystery and Mayhem

Computing: Keyboard skills

PE: Thursdays and Fridays


Please read the information below to find out more about the routines in Year 3.                       

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.


Mr. Bie  and Mrs. Scott teach in 3BS with teaching assistant Mrs Wallace.  Mrs. France and Mrs. Turley teach in 3FT with teaching assistant Mrs. Jackson. Other TAs, Mrs Brown, Mrs Harrison and Mrs Taylor, will also be in a supporting role within the year group


Children will take part in guided reading activities every day in school. Home readers are free choice using the colour book bands we encourage them to read for pleasure and enjoyment. Children can bring in books from home, and are encouraged to independently change their book when needed. Please use the planner to let us know how your child is getting on at home.

Planners & Home-Learning Tasks

Your child will be presented with a Planner, that is full of useful information. Please take time to look through it with your child. For each week, there is ample space to write down any reading done at home, plus a page set aside for any notes for your use. We would like you to sign the Planner at the end of each week. In addition to reading we will send home tasks which support our work in Maths, English, Science or Topic.  We will also send home spelling homework each week.


Our PE days are Thursdays and Fridays.  We plan to get outside as much as possible for PE or activities, such as Afternoon Mile,  so please could ensure your child's PE kit is in school everyday, including trainers.  As the weather gets colder you may also wish to send in jogging bottoms and an extra jumper.

Everyday Items

Please bring in a water bottle and coat every day. 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 the children's bags, 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
