A typical week in year three is action packed and full of fun.

To stop your teachers feeling glum.

Take a peek at the list below.

Then we will all be ready to go.

Monday - Outdoor games kit and reading book please.

Tuesday - Indoor PE kit and reading book please.

Wednesday - Stationery shop is open (prices up to £1) and reading book please.

Thursday - Outdoor games kit or swimming kit (and waterproof coat), reading book and completed homework please.

Friday- Reading book please.


Spellings- A list of words for the half term is given out at the start of each half term. 

Reading - Children are expected to read at home at least three times per week.  They can choose a book from home or can take a book from the classroom.  They also have logins to the Bug Club Website where specific books will be allocated to them.  When they have read these books, there are questions for them to answer regarding what they've read.  Please be aware that the teachers can access the children's responses to questions to check for understanding.  Children are given a day for them to change their books each week and we hope they will change them on a weekly basis.

Pleae make sure your reading diary is in school on the correct day for teachers to check.


After half term we are going to be reading the story of the Mousehole cat.  A brave cat who helps save her village from starvation.


We will be starting our work on Pre-historic Britain after half term and are hoping to have a visitor from the Stone Age..... Breaking News December 1st a day of prehistoric fun!


We will be sending out homework after Christmas but we would really appreciate your support in learning times tables.  By the end of Year 3, children should know x2, x3, x4, x5, x8 and x10 all the way to 12.  The corresponding division facts should also be known for example 4 x 8 = 32 so 32 shared by 4 equals 8 and 32 shared by 8 equals 4.  Why not have a look at Hit the button, a fun quick fire game to help times table recall.
