Athelstan Community Primary School

"To be the best that we can be"

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


Teachers in Year 3:

Mr Tull is in the Kijani room.

Mr Bryan is in the Green room. 


Other adults in Year 3 are:

Mrs Lax, Mrs Hart and Mr Dunnill




The children will need an outdoor PE kit of white t-shirt, blue or black jogging bottoms and top and trainers.


We do PE on:

Mr Tull: Wednesday and Friday

Mr Bryan: Wednesday and Friday




We test spellings on: Friday


It is important for your child to be learning their spellings each week as it will help them with their application for both reading and writing. 


If using the look, say, cover, write, check method is not suitable for your child, please feel free to learn and practise the spellings in a different way. In the 'English and SPaG' section of our year page, there are other strategies to practise their spellings, such as 'Split Words', 'Pyramid Words', and many more. The spelling sheet can be found in the 'Homework' section of our year page.



Our daily homework is to read to an adult at home. There is a bookmark in your child's planner that has example question starters to use to question your child on what they are reading. This will enhance your child's understanding of what they are reading. A copy of this bookmark can be found in the 'Reading' section of our year page. Books will also be changed every Friday if finished.


Times Tables 

Completing 20 games on TT Rockstars is also set and needs to be completed daily throughout the week. This will help to ensure we make our best possible progress during our time in Year Three.
