Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!
Welcome to Year Three! Our teacher is Miss Matthews and we are helped in class by Miss Smallwood every morning. Miss Bushnell teaches us on a Thursday afternoon. 
We are very busy in Year Three so below is some key information to help you know what is happening during a typical week.
Key Information
  • PE is on a Friday and one other day so children will need to ensure their PE kit is in school on these days. (We recommend that PE kits are kept in school).  Earrings will need to be removed or covered over for PE – please remember staff are unable to help with this.  We will continue to go outdoors for as long as we can so please remember to pop tracksuit bottoms and a sweatshirt into PE bags now that the days are getting much colder.
  • Spellings will be posted on Class Dojo on Fridays. Spellings will also be tested on Friday mornings. Please encourage your child to learn their spellings. Our aim with spellings is for the children to confidently remember to spell these words correctly in their daily writing and not just remember them for the test.


  • Weekly homework is to read 3 times, play 3 garage games on TTRockstars and learn spellings. Please encourage your child to complete homework as it is targeted to their individual needs and does support and extend what we have been learning in the classroom.  If your child is doing extra learning at home, we would love to see it posted onto our class Dojo page. We can then share it with the rest of the class. This will give your child the confidence to speak aloud to an audience. We also love to see what they've been doing at home!


  • Times Tables Rock Stars is the program we use to set, monitor and assess times tables. Each child has their own user name and password (stuck in their diary) and is set a task to play at least 3 times per week. We test Y3 tables daily as part of our maths lessons. Dojo points will be given for each child completing their 3 sessions.


  • The children are responsible for changing their own reading books before or after school and are expected to have their reading book and homework diary in school each day. Reading at home makes a huge difference to your child’s progress, so please ensure to read regularly together at home throughout the week and sign the diary on that particular days page. Again, when children have read 3 or more times each week, dojo points are rewarded to them.
