Welcome to Year Three.

We hope that your child has a happy and successful year, one in which they will grow both in independence and confidence.



Attached is a class timetable for this half term. Please encourage your child to look at this regularly to ensure the correct equipment is brought to school on each day. We have also included a topic plan which details the subjects covered across the year. Science, Art, DT, ICT, History and Geography will be taught through our afternoon topic lessons. French will be taught as a discrete subject every Wednesday and Music and P.E. will be taught by our specialist teachers (Mr Groves, Miss Parish and Mr Cooper).



The weekly timetable shows your child’s P.E. days (Tuesdays and Thursdays). A complete P.E. kit, including trainers should be kept in school. Unless it is very wet we will continue to do P.E. lessons outside so a tracksuit may be necessary for the winter months. P.E. clothing should support our uniform policy, white t-shirts and blue or black shorts / tracksuit bottoms. All jewellery should be removed for P.E. lessons, earrings can be taped by you or your child. We will be visiting the Splash for swimming lessons from Easter to the end of the Summer Term. Consent forms for this will be sent out nearer the time.



It is still important to be reading or sharing stories with your children. Role modelling good reading habits yourselves will also show your children that reading can provide lots of pleasure. When reading with your child it is important to ask a range of questions to check their understanding of the story. Although your children are increasingly independent readers we would still love you to read with them at least once a week to check their understanding.


Arriving and Leaving School.

Please ensure that children are not at school before 8:45am as there are no staff on duty to supervise them. We expect all children to be in the classroom for registration at 8:50am. When children arrive at school they should wait in the back playground. At the end of the day, please make sure your child knows where they are being met, and by whom.




Expectations and Rewards.

In moving to Year 3, we have high expectations in terms of work load and behaviour. We will be following the whole school traffic light system for behaviour management and will continue with the ‘Star of the Day’ reward system. However each class teacher may have their own reward system which will be specific to their class.



There will be an expectation that all children complete at least half and hour of Maths Whizz games every week. We will celebrate those children making the best progress in class and during celebration assemblies. The computer room will be available one lunchtime a week for those children who don’t have internet or computer access at home.


Homework will be sent home in books every Tuesday to be handed in the following Monday. The homework subject will alternate between English and topic / creative tasks. We will sometimes ask the children to practise a skill they have learnt that week, or alternatively children may be asked to research an upcoming topic.
