Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


Dear Parents/Carers,


I hope you had a lovely and much needed rest over the half term. It’s going to be a very exciting rest of the year.



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


Curriculum Overview 

This half term our learning will focus around the theme of ‘The Anglo Saxons’ 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 take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays. We will be doing Athletics and Cricket, perfect for the hopefully sunny weather. Please make sure your child has a PE kit for this.


Home Learning

I have once again changed the layout of the home learning grid. Like the previous layout, the children will have a set of weekly tasks that must be completed every week (red) and then a set of additional challenges to complete if they wish. Please find the next grid 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.

Please note that every Friday I will be holding a Reading Raffle where any children who have read at least 3 times a week will receive a raffle ticket. I will then draw 2 tickets and those lucky children with the matching numbers will get to pick a book of their choice as their prize.


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
