Welcome to Year 3


Teachers - Mrs Darnton, Mrs MCCabe and Mrs Gregory

Teaching Assistants -Miss Grady, Miss Jones, Mrs Sutton and Mrs McGinley




Children are expected to read every day to an adult and a comment/signature is needed in their reading record.  Reading records are to be handed in every day.

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




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/tennis session every Friday.  In addition to this, when children are not swimming they will have a P.E. lesson on a Wednesday.  Please ensure children always have their P.E. kits in school and 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.        








Home Learning
