Welcome to our Year 3 class page.


Please refer to this page for important information regarding your child's education as well as key dates for your diary.

English - bring in your chosen book on Monday to talk about to the class. It could be your favourite book or the book you are reading at the moment.



The termly summary letter for the academic year will be sent home next week which will explain in detail the curriculum and expectations for the coming year. Please find below academic targets for the year.


In the meantime we will focus on getting the children into their new lower junior routine. Please encourage your child to use their new plastic folder to keep letters, homework and personal reading books safe. (Children are encouraged to bring their own books to school to read in class - they will no longer have school reading records as in the infants.)


Homework will commence fully once the termly summary has been released to parents. Music lessons have begun for those children who are continuing on from the infants and teachers for new applicants are in the process of being sorted.

Mathletics will be used both at school and for homework so please allow your children access to the internet either on a computer or tablet.
