Message from Y3 Team


Welcome back to 'different' Term 3! You've all made a brilliant start to year, staying in touch through Teams and producing some fantastic work - keep it up.

Attending School During Lockdown

The school day starts at 8.45am for Y3.  A member of staff will open the main gate on Church Road for your child to come into the playground.

Please do NOT send your child to school if they are unwell or have any Coronavirus systems. Let the school office know if your child is not attending and the reason for absence. Please ensure they are wearing clean clothes every day. 

The school day ends at 3.15pm.  Again a member of staff will open the main gate, on Church Road, for you to enter the playground collect children and leave via the top playground gate.

School Dinners are available.  The menu can be found on the website under parent and lunch menus. 


Please ensure your child is wearing warm clothes and sensible footwear - as we will be doing PE.  It is colder in the classrooms than usual due to windows and doors being kept open for ventilation.

Parent Pack for September 2020


Reading is a key skill as it affects all areas of day to day life.  As a school we promote a love of reading and encourage children to read a wide range of different genres.

When children can read fluently with good understanding they self-select books from our well stocked library.  

Parents/Carers can help at home by listening to your child read or sharing their book.  The expectation is that your child reads at home a minimum of three times per week in KS1 (Reception, Year 1 and 2) and five times per week in KS2 (Year 3, 4, 5 and 6).  This should be recorded in their reading record, which will be checked weekly.

In addition, children can access Reading Eggs, an online reading program, at home or in school.  Please see your class teacher for login details.

We always encourage children to learn to spell words correctly.  They will be taught the spelling 'rules' and how to apply this knowledge in their work.

To support them and let them have some fun while learning we use an online program called Spelling Shed.  This can be accessed at home, using the link below.  Please see your class teacher for the login details.

Also below is a printable sheet containing the year groups target words.


   Spelling Shed




Homework will be sent home on a regular basis, normally a Friday and due in on Wednesday.  There will also be bigger projects from time to time that children will have longer to complete.  


We have at least two PE lessons per week, Tuesday and Friday.  Please ensure your child's kit is in school at all times to enable us to be flexible.

We do PE in all types of weather so please ensure your child has suitable PE kit.  In the Summer months we recommend shorts and t-shirt and in the winter long trousers with t-shirt and hoodie.  Trainers or daps should be worn.  

All kit should be clearly labelled with your child's name.

An example of our kit, which can be purchased from NK Sports, is below or your child needs a plain white t-shirt and black shorts.

Snacks & Drinks

As a healthy eating school, we encourage children to drink throughout the day.  Water is the best drink for children to have as it is the healthiest and if spilt does not attract ants or wasps!  They can also bring in a piece of fruit to eat at break time. (No Sweets, fruit rolls etc).
