Year 3P

Welcome to 3P 


Welcome to Year 3! I can’t wait to share this journey with the class. We have a busy term ahead with lots of exciting topics planned which I know the children will enjoy. Our History focus for Autumn 1 is Stone Age to Iron Age and in English we are reading The Stone Age Boy. In Maths we will be focusing on Place Value and Number.

General Information 



We love reading in Year 3. Each Friday we will be having a Book Club in class where children can share their favourite books and encourage their love for reading. Please ensure your child keeps their reading book and reading record in their bags so that they are accessible throughout the week. In the classroom, we will be reading each week to our friends and teachers. 


Homework - Reading

We encourage all children to read for 20 minutes each night. This can be independently or to an adult. Our current focus this term is fluency and expression.


Homework - Spellings

I will be uploading the weekly spellings each week via Purple Mash by 4.00pm every Monday and the children will have one week to practise these words. The spellings will also be displayed in the classroom window each week. The children will be tested on their spellings the following Monday. The spelling test will be in a mixed order.


Homework - Times Tables

Making sure that the children can quickly recall their times table facts will really help with their learning in Years 3 and 4. Each week we will have a focus times table that we will work on in class on a daily basis. The focus times table will also be displayed in the classroom window the Friday before so you can practise at home. Children will then be tested on this times table the following Friday.


The following websites will help the children do this, at their own pace, and in a fun way.


Purple Mash (children have their own login details)




This term, our PE lessons will take place on a Thursday and Friday. Please send your child to school in their full PE kit. In colder temperatures, your child is welcome to wear joggers / leggings to keep them warm. Your child must have their school jumper or cardigan, no hoodies, please. 



Please ensure all uniform, bags and water bottles are labeled clearly.



The children are welcome to bring a snack to school for morning and afternoon breaks. Please ensure that these snacks are healthy!


Medical Conditions

A quick reminder! If your child has a medical condition that we need to know about, please inform us as soon as possible. If your child requires an inhaler or any other medication, please make sure it has been returned to school and is not out of date.



Please ensure all contact details are up to date in the office.
