Children in Year 3 are split into two classes - 3A and 3alpha. This is the first year of Key Stage 2. During the morning, learning is mainly focused on developing children as readers, writers and mathematicians. Our afternoon sessions support children to use their morning learning as well as developing their skills and knowledge in other curriculum areas: Geography, History, R.E., P.S.H.E and Computing. Over the week, children also are taught by specialist teachers for Art, P.E. (including swimming) and Science.
We believe that children learn best when their parents/carers and teachers work closely in partnership. Because of this, we are always happy to discuss your child’s wellbeing and progress - please come and chat to us at the end of the school day once all children have been dismissed.
Letters that have been circulated to parents are available for you to view and download here.
These are the times that apply to a year 3 pupil’s school day.
|08:55||children line up in the playground|
|15:25||end of school|
Children line up on the playground at 08:55 and the teacher will lead into the class when the whistle blows. Anyone who is late will have to go through to the main school office and register there first.

On Friday, children take part in PE and Swimming lessons. They will need to wear a tracksuit to school and bring their swimming kit with them.
To support their learning at home, we ask parents and carers to read with their child at least three times a week and record this in their reading records. Homework is set on a Thursday and is due in the following Wednesday. Children will have spellings and times tables to practise as well as a short grammar activity. If you would like to know how best to support your child with their homework, please just let us know.
The following strands will be covered across the three terms:
Times tables will also be practised on a daily basis alongside the above units.
For more information about the strands please click the National Curriculum link at the bottom of this page.
There are many exciting topics covered which include: Teeth and healthy eating, light and shadows, magnets and springs and materials. Our children enjoy these areas and have the opportunity to demonstrate the skills they learn in a fun and challenging way.
