Year 3 Notices

Year 3 staff would like to say a big thank you to all parents and carers that support their children at home with their homework and reading. If you are struggling to understand any of the methods, we are using at school please do not hesitate in speaking with the class teachers.

Homework will be given to your child on a Friday and is expected to be returned the following Wednesday. Your child will also receive weekly spellings on a Monday which they will learn at home for their weekly test. Please could you also read with your child every night and sign their planner to track this. Children can access bug club reading books online from home. This can found on the website in the learning zone. The children’s passwords are in their reading journals and this can be logged in their journals as a reading entry.

Thankyou again for your support.


Children will take part in  P.E sessions twice a week on a Monday afternoon and Thursday afternoon. Children need to bring their P.E kits with them to get changed in school.  If your child wears a dress/ skirt with tights, it may be more suitable to wear trousers and socks on this day.

Library Times

Children will visit the school library every Friday and take a book home. Please talk about the book with your child at home and return the following week so that they can choose a new book.

“The room was amazing.”
