Welcome to Year 3!


Week Beginning: Monday 18th of October 2021 

I can't believe how quickly the first half term has gone! I have been so impressed with all your positive attitudes and hard work over the past few weeks; you have all had an amazing start to Year 3!

I hope you all have a lovely half term next week and enjoy your well deserved break!

Important information for parents:

  • We will have a spellings test every Friday. The spellings lists for both groups are below. 
  • As explained at Parents Information Evening, some classes are choosing to upload homework weekly onto the class page as a sustainable alternative to printing it out. Homework sheets do not need to be printed at home, your child can write down the answers to the worksheet into their book. Homework is due in to be marked on Monday 1st November. 


  • If your child is still on Read Write Inc, books will be given out every Monday. It is encouraged that your child reads their home reader 3 times. 
  • If your child is a free reader, books will not be given out and your child is encouraged to practise reading with books they have at home. 


  • P.E will be on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Your child will need to bring in their P.E kit to change into at lunchtime. 
  • Please make sure your child has a water bottle to keep hydrated throughout the day as well as a piece of veg or fruit for morning snack. (Free fruit is no longer given out in KS2)
