Welcome to Year 3, the first year group in KS2. We hope that you will love joining us in Year 3 to help inspire, educate and enjoy the many subjects that will be covered during the year. In this year group, we get to learn drumming with our amazing artist in residence Mark, as well as covering many different subjects in both the core and foundation lessons.
The Year 3 school day begins at 8:55am and ends at 3:15pm, Monday – Friday.
Year 3 Staff will be out in the playground each morning at 8:50am if parents/carers wish to discuss any matters before the school day begins. There is a mid-morning break from 10:30 -10:45am, and a lunch break from 12:30 – 1:30pm.

PE takes place every Tuesday and Friday: Could you please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school during these days. It is advised that your child has their kit with them every day so that they can take part in any sporting activities that occur throughout the week. PE outdoors will be subject to weather conditions during the colder months.
Your child will be provided with a reading diary and reading book for them to take home and share with parents/carers. Please can you hear your child read every night and write a comment about what they have read. Reading diaries should be in school every day.
Weekly homework is sent out every Friday and is due back into school on the following Wednesday. Children are expected to have a reading book which they should read at home every night and they will have a reading diary for parents’ comments. Spellings are set every Monday for a test on Friday.
We have elected some of our children in Year 3 to represent us in different ways within our school. They each help to provide a voice for Year 3 and represent our class extremely well. They are:
- School Councillors – Jadae and Luca
- Unicef Ambassadors – Lily and Mason
Each half term in Year 3 we will invite you to join us for a Parent Workshop. Every workshop will focus on the learning that has happened during that half term. There are other workshops that occur throughout the year which you will be notified about at least a week before. There will also be 3 reading breakfasts throughout the year for you to join us to celebrate books with your child.
