Love to Learn, Together with the Lord

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

In Year 3, our classroom is a fun, caring and inclusive space where every child works hard and supports each other in a kind and respectful manner.

Keep your eyes peeled on our class page throughout the year, as we will be adding information and links, which will enable you to support your child’s learning even further and be a part of their journey.

Please get in touch if there is anything else that you would like us to add to our page and don’t forget you can message us directly on Seesaw too.

In Year 3 we encourage the children to read every day. Studies show that children make more progress when they complete regular reading at home and in school. 

Reading books and diaries should be sent into school every day with your child, so that children can read to an adult in school. Reading books will be changed twice weekly, and we will aim to do this on a Tuesday and on a Friday. Please make sure to write any comments and sign your child's reading diary each time they have read at home. Each time your child brings in their reading book and diary they will receive 2 raffle tickets, and an extra one if they have read at home!


Authors of the half-term:

Every half-term, to further promote the children's love of reading, we will be finding out about a new author and exploring several of their books.

Autumn 1- Michael Bond

Times Tables

By the end of Year 3, it is expected that your child can recall facts for the 2,3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. They will be tested every Friday. Please encourage your child to practise these regularly using TT Rockstars. 


Spellings are sent home every Monday. Please encourage your child to practise these as often as possible, as the children will be tested on a Friday. The test is completed using the words in sentences.


Every Monday, a couple of tasks, linking to the learning we have been doing/will be covering in class, will be sent home with the children. Please take the time to work through the homework challenges with your child as this really does help their knowledge and understanding. Homework includes spellings, as discussed above and also regular reading. 


Our PE lessons this half-term will take place on Wednesdays and ThursdaysPlease ensure your child COMES into school in their full school PE kit ONLY, on these days. It is essential they have a full kit to take part in the lessons each week. Please make sure your child has removed earrings on these days and any long hair is tied up.  


Throughout the year, don't forget to keep an eye on Seesaw to see what we get up to! Please ask if you need your log on for Seesaw again.
