Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


Dear Parents/Carers,


I hope you had a lovely and much needed rest over the Christmas Holidays. It’s going to be a very exciting year and it is off to a fantastic start.



The year 3 team consists of myself, Mrs McDermott, Mrs Cridland and Mrs Scampton. Mrs Bell also teaches the class on a Monday afternoon.


Curriculum Overview

This half term our learning will focus around the theme of ‘The Romans’ Please find attached a curriculum overview which shows you what we will be covering in our learning. This can also be viewed on our Year 3 page on the school website.


Physical Education

PE will continue to take place on Wednesdays and Fridays. We will be looking at Hockey and Tennis skills across the next 5 weeks. It may be sensible to opt for warmer sports wear if possible.


Home Learning

I have altered the home learning grid to make it a little simpler and easier to manage. Children have a set of weekly tasks that much be completed every week and then a set of additional challenges to complete if they wish. Please find behind.



The spellings will be stuck into home learning books at the start of the half term and also attached behind as a backup. Children need to practice these in the spelling journal books.



Please continue to listen to your child read regularly and record this in their reading diary. The children should be reading to someone every day for 5 – 10 minutes. It is important that they have the opportunity to talk about the book that they are reading.

We are keen to hear from anybody who has some spare time to hear children read during the school day. This can be for as little as 10 minutes at the start of the school day. Any time you have to offer is always greatly appreciated. Thank you to the parents and grandparents that came in to listen to the children read last half term.


If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see me. Additionally, I can be emailed at or you can send me a message on the Class Dojo.


Yours sincerely,


Miss Garland
