Useful information

  • We encourage children to be more independent in Year 3, so they can organise their book bags, water bottles, PE kits, lunchboxes, reading records and homework for themselves. There will normally be an activity for them to focus on before registration.

  • PE sessions will be on a Tuesday and Wednesday please ensure your child has the correct kit.  

  • Year 3’s Library morning is Thursday and the Library is also open every day after school if children need to return or renew books.

  • Children do not need to bring pencil cases as toolkits with all the equipment children need for their learning are always accessible.

  • Wednesday afternoons we will have half an hour French with Mrs Duke.

  • Friday is  when Treasure is given out. Children receive treasure when they have either been on gold 3 times (within the week) on the zone board or reached the gold star.

  • Adults in Year 3 are always looking for children who are trying their best and each week a “Star of the Week” is chosen.

  • Children are expected to bring in topic related homework every Monday – see suggestions on the key questions page.

  • On the curriculum page you will find weekly picture slideshows of what the children have been learning in afternoon topic sessions. At the end of every half term a topic book will also be uploaded onto the website to share our achievements.


    If you have any questions or queries please do not hesitate to speak to any of the Year 3 Team  We are available briefly before and after school. If you would like to speak to us in more detail we would be happy to make an appointment at a mutually convenient time.
