Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


Teachers - Mrs Darnton, Miss Welsh and Mrs Gregory

Teaching Assistants - Mrs Flounders Mrs Sutton and Mrs McGinley




Children are expected to read every day to an adult and, although we won't be using Reading Records at the moment, parents may send a Dojo message to say that a child has read.  

Homework will include; weekly spellings to be tested on a Monday and a piece of Maths/English homework to consolidate class work. This will be uploaded onto Seesaw.



(we are still waiting to hear when this will recommence)


Whilst in Year 3, children are given the opportunity to go swimming. Swimming days for each class are:

  • Class 7 - Wednesday morning in the first half of each term.
  • Class 8 - Wednesday morning in the second half of each term.

Please make sure your child has their swimming costume/trunks (no baggy shorts), cap and towel. Children must ensure that their earrings are removed prior to swimming.




Children will have P.E session every Thursday.  In addition to this, when children are not swimming they will have a P.E. lesson on a Wednesday.  Please ensure children come to school in their P.E. kits on these days. They may wear joggers and hoodies over their kits. Please ensure earrings are removed on their P.E. days.


Times Table Rock Stars and Reading Plus


In class, children have access to Times Table Rock Stars, to help support their learning of multiplication facts and in preparation for the Year 4 multiplication assessment.  Children can use their login details to also access Times Table Rock Stars at home.

Reading Plus is an online reading program to help develop fluency and comprehension skills.  It is used weekly in school but children can also use their login details to access it at home and it is a great resource to develop their reading skills.
