Hello and WELCOME to Year 3! 

On this page you will find information about PE, Homework, Reading and anything else you might need to know. I will update it each half term so please keep an eye out for any changes.

What do you need in Year 3?

  • Refillable Waterbottle - in school every day
  • Healthy, low/no sugar snack or snack money in a named purse/wallet for breaktime
  • Small backpack for your diary, homework and waterbottle
  • School colour banded reading book & Reading for Joy book (from school/local library or home)
  • Blue Diary: to record reading, spelling and any messages.
  • Homework book on the correct days (see below)
  • If you wish to bring your own pencil case, it must be small enough to fit in your tray and must not contain any scissors or sharpeners.


Your child should bring their diary and both reading books into school each day. 


What are we learning?

Please refer to the Year 3 Curriculum map on the curriculum page so you can see what we are learning and when!


PE/OUTDOOR LEARNING: (Updated for Autumn 2)

Monday: Outdoor PE

Friday: Indoor PE





READING RACE - READ 5 TIMES A WEEK AT LEAST FOR AN END OF THE WEEK TREAT! Sign your child's diary each time the read so they can move up the race track! (Diaries will be checked on a Friday - weekends are included!)

It is important that children can not only read books but understand what they are reading.

Please read with your child daily. Try to discuss the story, characters and vocabulary with your children. Support with this can be found in the files at the bottom of this page.

Your child should be reading their school colour banded book more than once to aid with fluency and comprehension. Alongside this they can read another book of their choice to encourage 'Reading for Joy'. 



Please check your child's homework diary for all homework pages. Their diary should be in class everyday.



Given out Mondays to be completed and in school by the next Monday



Given out Fridays to be completed and in school by the next Friday



To be sent home on Wednesday's - stuck into their diary

Weekly spellings are based upon a spelling rule.

It is vital that children are learning the spelling rules in order to apply them to their writing, rather than just learning the words they bring home. A google search of the spelling rule will bring up lots more words to practice!
