Welcome to Year 3!

Our topics this Summer term are: Rainforests, Light (science) and Forces and Magnets (science).

Homework for Maths and English is given out on Wednesday and collected the following Monday. Please support your child with the homework when they need it and ask if you have any queries regarding the tasks. Additionally the children are expected to read regularly at home (please record this in their reading journals) and practise their spellings and times tables.

We have PE on Tuesdays (either 3C or 3R), Thursdays (either 3C or 3R) and games on Fridays. Please make sure your child has a named PE kit including pumps or trainers that fit in school at all times.

If you have any worries or concerns about your child in Year 3 please come and see the class teachers.

We have lots planned for this term. Read our blog below to see what we've been up to!

  • Summer diaries

    At the end of the Summer term we gave your child an A4 book in which to make some record of their summer holidays. We are looking forward to sharing these in the first few weeks. We are happy to help print out some pictures to go into the books if they are brought in on a memory stick or emailed to accompany their writing, diagrams and other information.
