Athelstan Community Primary School

To Be The Best That We Can Be

Year 3

Welcome to Year Three


Teachers in Year Three:

 Miss Frampton in the Kijani room

Mr Bryan in the Green room.


Other adults in our bubble are: 

Mrs Lax and Mrs Hart.



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 Bryan: Fridays

Miss Frampton: Fridays




We test spellings and hand in the spelling homework sheet 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.


Grammar, Spelling and Punctuation Workbooks

Activities for grammar, spelling and punctuation will be set weekly on Friday and to be handed in on the following Friday. The activity will be in a workbook and the children will know what page(s) they will need to complete throughout the week. The date of when the activity was set will also be on the page(s) of what needs to be completed. Please ensure that your child only completes the set activity for the week. 



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.


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.



Additional homework has been set via Athelnandos which you can find in the homework section of our class page. Additional Maths activities can also be found in the 'Maths' section of our year page.
