Year 3

Dear parents

Welcome to Year 3. We look forward to an exciting year full of diverse and creative learning opportunities that will further strengthen and develop your child’s learning muscles. Year 3 will provide academic challenges that will allow them to successfully grow in confidence as a learner and instil a higher degree of independence.

The year 3 team are:

               Catherine Carter  | email 

               Iona Greaves  |  email

                Kristy Parslow  |  email

The year 3 team are supported by Rita and Isabela

We are always more than happy to speak to you about any queries or concerns you have and you can contact us after school or via the email links above.

The children’s day begins at 8:45 with 15 minutes of early work to establish a productive learning environment. The morning break is at 11:15 – 11:30, with lunch at 12:30 – 13:30. The end of the day is 15:30.

To encourage the children to become more independent, they will come into the classroom on their own at the beginning of each day. They will be responsible for hanging up their coats and putting their bags and lunch boxes in the right places.

The children will also continue to have weekly Learning Partners that they will collaborate with during lessons. This will enable them to share ideas and consolidate what they have learnt. Learning Partners are chosen randomly and change on a weekly basis. 

Please encourage your child to read every day and ask them questions to explore their understanding of the text. These can include ‘on the line’ questions, where the answer can be found in the text, ‘outside the lines’, where you check their understanding of certain words and ‘between the lines’, which look at inference and what is going on in the underlying story of a text.

We are always happy for parents to come in and help in any way that they can, so if you would like to do this, or have any special talents that you would like to share, please come and see us!

We look forward to the year ahead.

Year 3 Team

We adopt  a cross curricular approach to our learning  where we interlink the main topic of the term to other areas of the curriculum. Please explore the below curriculum documents for further details.
