Welcome to Year 3   


General information....

Start of the school day: Children can enter the school building from 8:40. They must go straight to their class and be in school no later than 8:50.

End of the school day: Parents come into playground at 3:15.

What do children need to bring to school: Please bring a named water bottle every day! There is no need to bring a PE kit, children can just wear PE clothes on their PE day. Please don’t bring toys. Children can bring a healthy snack such as a piece of fruit to eat at playtime! If you would like your child to have milk, please contact the office.

PE Days -  Manatee Class will have PE lessons on Mondays and Tuesdays, and Marlins will have PE lessons on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Children need to wear their PE kit to school on these days. Children can wear shorts or leggings or tracksuit bottoms, a t-shirt, polo shirt or other suitable top, trainers or plimsols. As the weather gets colder children may need warmer clothes such as a tracksuit top and bottoms or a hoodie.


Reading - In year 3 we ask children to try to read every day or as often as possible with someone else (adult or sibling).  This is really important as becoming a confident reader helps children with their learning in all areas of the curriculum.

Please support your child to develop their understanding of new vocabulary and the text they are reading by asking them questions and getting them to explain their thinking.

Spelling - This will have spellings and prompts for you to discuss your child’s learning each week. It will also have notices for parents if needed. 

Maths - Below are links to other online learning resources and games which children can access at home. Children have been given individual passwords for Purple Mash, Sum Dog and Times Table Rockstars. We have sent home a keychain will all of your child's passwords on. Please keep this in a safe place so you can enjoy learning at home together!
