Year 3

Welcome to your first term in Year 3!!!


The Year 3 team:

Mrs Loynds - 3 Crystal

Mrs Davis and Mrs McVeigh - 3 Lion

Miss Brown supports Year 3


Our topic for the first half of the Autumn Term is:

Bright, Bright Light.




PE days will be Wednesday and Friday. We will be doing PE outside as much as possible, so please please remember to come in school PE Kit - red T-shirt, navy or black jogging bottoms/leggings and navy or black jumper/hoodie, suitable for indoor and outdoor PE. Please remember to label kit and all uniform with your child's name.


Number Heroes are completed every week. These 'Clubs' focus on Times Tables, starting with 2's, 5's and 10's and moving on to include 3's, 4's and 6's. Children will bring their 'Club Sheet' home each week so that can work on correcting any errors for the following week.


Water bottles. Please send your child with a named water bottle. Children must only touch their own water bottle.


Lunch boxes and water bottles are the only items that should be brought into school from home please.


TT Rock Stars. Please continue to support your children in accessing TT Rock Stars. Their log on details from Year 2 will still work. This will help with learning of Times Tables.


Hand washing will be regular and hand gel will be applied.
