Welcome to Year 3 Curriculum Meeting

Autumn Term - Time Travellers


Are we nearly there yet?


Get ready to travel back in time and explore the Stone Age! We will be diving into all things Stone Age, finding out about how they lived, what they ate, where they lived and what they used to hunt for food. In science we will be exploring different light sources and finding out more about our main light source, the sun. In PSHE we will be thinking about manners and when we use them... the teachers will be looking out for some excellent role modelling of this in class!


Upcoming event

INSPIRE meeting in the Main Hall at 9am on Friday 12th November! We look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible :-)



The school day

The classroom doors will open at 8.35am and close at 8.45am. If the classroom door is shut when you arrive, please take your child to the office and sign them in there. 

The school day finishes at 3.15pm. Please be prompt in being on the playground ready to collect your child and to hear about all the wonderful learning they have done.



Parent meetings

We are delighted to be able to welcome parents and guardians in for a chat when needed but please be aware that there is an expectation that parents and guardians will wear a mask when meeting with staff inside the school. Where possible, please wait until the end of the day and after all children have been dismissed if you need to talk to the teachers.




School uniform reminder


Please ensure your child comes to school in correct uniform everyday. On PE days they can wear their PE kit to school but again, please ensure that they are wearing the correct school PE kit.




The expectation is that your child reads every night and an adult signs their reading record. Their reading record should then be brought in every day and their book changed regularly.











Year Three will be going swimming weekly on a Tuesday from the 28th September. Children need to ensure they have the full kit. Please let us know if you need a copy of the swimming kit list. 

(Beginning with a 1 week intensive course where the children will go every afternoon - Hummingbirds Mon 13th - Fri 17th & Toucans Mon 20th - Fri 24th September)


PE Days:

Toucans: Thursday

Hummingbirds: Thursday

Each week the children will receive spellings and times tables appropriate to their level. These will be stuck into their homework books and sent home every Friday.

If you ever misplace or lose spellings, please let your class teacher know. 

Test days:

Thursday - Times table test

Thursday - Spelling test



Please don't forget your 20mins (or more!) a week of RM Easimaths!

As well as finding your child's homework sheets in their homework books, please find copies of this weeks homework below;
