To Be The Best That We Can Be

Year 3

Welcome to our Year 3 page!


In the green room the teachers are:



 Miss Lerry (Monday- Wednesday) and Mr Osborne (Thursday - Friday).
Miss Barker is our teaching assistant.


In the Kijani room the teachers are:

Mrs Aveyard.

Our teaching assistants are Miss Stewart and Mrs Wealsby.



Our PE days are:  Tuesday and Thursday.  Children should bring in their PE kit on a Monday and be taken home on a Friday. PE kit includes: a white T-shirt, black or navy shorts or joggers, a dark coloured jogging top and trainers.


Homework: We will send out Homework  every Friday consisting of a maths task on MyMaths and either a grammar or reading task. The task will be linked as far as possible to that weeks learning. Homework must be handed in by the following Thursday. 


Spellings: Children are following the Read, Write, Inc. spelling program. Children will update their planners on a Monday with the weeks' spelling rule and words. These words will also be tested as 'Speed Spell' the following Monday. Children will also write in 'Orange' words into their planners, these spellings will not change until 80% of class spell them correctly. As a result, these spellings will not be updated as regularly. 


Reading: All children should read on a daily basis at home. Children will independently select reading books to bring home that are tailored to their personal comprehension abilities. Once books have been read, children should complete the accelerated reader quiz.


Mymaths and accelerated reader logins and passwords are stuck into the back of children's planners.
