General Information

Welcome to our Year 3 web page
Here you should find all of the information you need to know about year three.
Key Information


Handed out each Wednesday, due in the following Monday. 

  • Maths Sheet - a sheet relating to the work they have covered in class.
  • Maths Book - 3 sections linked to skills that all Y3 should know
  • Mental Maths Challenge - each child will have a set of times tables to practice for a test on the following Monday.
  • Spellings - a set of spellings to learn, to be tested the following week.


Please send in P.E. kit every day as the days on which we take part in various activites can change each week.  Each week the children will take part in specific P.E. lessons, as well as regular active sessions such as 'Wake and Shake' or cross country.


Each year group has ten swimming sessions per year, each one lasting for 40 minutes.  For year three this year, they will swim from January until Easter.

They will need to bring along the correct swimwear for their session, with goggles recommended too.

We do ask for a contribution of £2.00 per session, which will appear on your child's ParentPay account in the spring term.


Year 3 Intervention

Intervention group work is sometimes required when a child needs additional support. Pupil premium funding is available for some of the intervention strategies. The interventions can last for one session a day, one week or one term dependent upon the individual needs of the child. If necessary, parents are informed of any intervention through a school report, telephone call or letter.

Handwriting - Children are given support on how to improve the presentation of their work through practising joining up their letters. 

Writing Improvement Group - Children are given teacher led support in how to use language features of a text correctly to improve their own writing. 

Sentence Structure Group - Children work to practice writing punctuated and structured sentences correctly. 

Daily Readers and High Frequency Words - Children who may struggle with their reading or who do not have the opportunity to read at home regularly will read daily in class to an adult. Practise will be given for children to recognise high frequency words to support their reading skills.
