Welcome to Year Three!


Day to day information

Our teacher is Mrs Stead and our brilliant teaching assistant is Miss Jones 

  • PE – Will be on Wednesdays and Fridays. Year 3 start swimming in the Spring term when more information will be given out. Year 3 will be doing gymnastics with our Beth Tweddle group coach in the Spring term also.
  • Reading books and reading diaries in everyday please.
  • Snack – snack money will be taken daily. Fruit and milk is no longer given out in KS2 but children are welcome to bring a healthy snack for breaktimes from home.
  • Spellings – We will start with securing our knowledge of high frequency words from KS1 before moving onto year 3 spelling patterns. Personalised high frequency word spellings will be given out on and these will be tested every Friday and as the children master them new spelling will be given. Children will also be given logins for Spelling Shed to play games and quizzes to help them master their spellings.
  • Times Tables – As we move into KS2 children will be expected to master more of the different times tables. We will focus this year on taking the times tables one at a time and looking at the patterns and links. The times table we are focusing on will be set for the children on Times Table Rockstars for them to practice. We will use the times tables challenge for assessment, but it will no longer be weekly tests.
  • Homework – Daily reading, spellings and timetables remain key priorities in weekly homework. Alongside this the children will now receive either a piece literacy, maths or topic work on See Saw once a week. This will be set on a Friday.
