Year 3 Parent information

Dear Parents,

A warm welcome to all new parents and Year 3 children! Here follows some general information about Year 3:


If you have any important information to tell us about your child, or would like us to know something, please write it in the homelink book, on the relevant page. We will ask children everyday whether they have any messages from you, to share with us. Please ensure you check this book every day, as we will also use it to write messages to you. We will also be sharing information via the website, flagged for Year 3. Alternatively, we are available at the start and end of every day, outside the Year 3 block, should you need to speak directly to us.

Daily equipment:

Children should be bringing their Homelink Books home every day, and returning to school with them the next day. They should also bring to school their Reading Record and reading books, and their pencil cases. They should, by the end of this week, have two reading books, one at a level chosen by their teacher, and one free choice. Each class teacher will endeavour to do this by Friday, so please bear with us!


Our PE days this term are Tuesdays and Thursdays. However, we request that children bring their PE kit in on a Monday and leave it in school until Friday. This is because there are occasionally times when we may need to change the day / timing of the lesson, to fit in with other events in school.


During a normal week, children will receive spelling and tables to practice on a Friday, to be tested the following Friday. They may also receive a piece of English, Maths or Science work to do, usually to support the lesson, for the following Friday. Your child may need support with these tasks. Children are also expected to read with an adult at least 3 times per week (ideally every day at this age!) and you will need to sign their reading diary and fill in a comment when you listen to them reading. We will reward children who can hand in homework on time and completed correctly.

Thanks for your continued support,

The Year 3 team.
