Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Class Teacher - Miss Goodfellow


Year 3 is the exciting start of the journey through K.S.2.  Although there is an increasing expectation of independence and maturity, we hope that the topics we cover this year will be engaging and fun. At the beginning of each topic there will be an experience or visit that will engage the children and make them want to learn more.


The School Day

The school gate opens at 8.45, and registration starts at 8.55. 

Morning Play 10.30 - 10.45

Lunchtime   12.15 - 1.15

School closes at 3.15



Year 3 have P.E. on a Wednesday afternoon with specialist P.E. teachers. They will require full P.E. kit which consists of black shorts and a white T-shirt. When weather is permitting they will do P.E. outside and will need trainers or pumps.


Homework connected to the half-termly topic is given out at the  beginning of each half term. The work produced at home is celebrated at the end of each half-term.

In addition to this , children are expected to read 3 times a week to an adult at home and record this in their Reading Record.  They are expected to regularly practice their 2, 5, 10, 3, 4, 6, and 8 times tables. Periodically spelling will be given home from the Yr.3,4 word list, or the spelling pattern we have been exploring in class.
