What You Need to Know

Please send your child in their PE kit on the days they do PE. For Year 3C, this is Monday and Wednesday. For Year 3L, this is Tuesday and Wednesday.

PE kit is a plain white t-shirt with dark trainers or pumps, and blue or black shorts. Plain black or blue tracksuit bottoms may be worn in the winter.

Homework will be given on Fridays to reflect the week’s learning. We recommend spending no more than 20 - 30 minutes on homework per night. Children will also practise spellings and take part in the Grand Spell each week. Results will be posted every Friday on our Class Dojo page.

Please check this page regularly as we will be posting updates on there as well as the school website.

Please make sure that aside from completing homework, your child is reading for a minimum of 10 minutes every night. If you have any concerns about your child’s homework, please speak to Mrs Coyle or Mrs Collins.

Year 3 Spellings for Autumn 2

What We Are Learning About - Spring 1

In Maths, we will be looking at Number and Place Value, and developing our understanding of Hundreds, Tens, and Ones. We use lots of practical equipment to support our understanding and continue to revise our Y2 skills throughout our sessions.

Every School

In English, we are revising lots of the punctuation and other skills taught in Year 2. We will be using some great books, like Stay and Lizzie and the Birds, to produce letters and diaries. We are also focussing on developing a fluent and joined style of writing.

In Religion, we are thinking about what it’s like to be part of God’s great family and His vision for each family on earth. As part of our RSE programme, we follow the Ten:Ten programme.

Throughout the year, children will be taking part in masses and services to mark their Sacraments of Reconciliation and Holy Communion. As part of their Sacramental journey, the children will be required to attend some Sunday masses throughout the year. Dates to follow.
