Friday 20th March

We have been thinking of ideas to keep ourselves busy while school is closed.

List can be downloaded below. How many can you do?

Welcome to Year 3!

Hello and welcome to Year 3’s class page. Our teacher is Miss Wood and our Teaching Assistant's are Mrs Holland-Powell and Mrs Whitaker.

PPA cover is taught by Mrs Harrison on a Thursday morning.


We are delighted to be teaching your child this year and look forward to seeing them grow and flourish. We set high expectations for our children and have lots to discover this year, but this doesn’t mean we don’t have fun whilst learning too.

We are a friendly team and welcome you to pop in if there is ever anything you wish to discuss with us.


What have we been up to recently?

Important Information


Reading is incredibly important and your support in this learning process is vital.

We encourage you to read with your child every night at home. Just ten minutes each evening can make a huge difference to your child’s progress.  We issue every child with a reading book which they should read at home and bring back to school with them daily. They also have access to the KS2 library where they can pick a book of their choice. Every child has a yellow reading journal which should be filled in and signed to show they have read at home. We check this first thing each morning.

Your child has also been given an Oxford Reading Buddies password where even more reading resources can be found.




Your child will receive homework on a Friday and we ask for it to be returned by the following Friday. The homework set will usually be a maths skill and a list of spellings that we have been working on in class to help reinforce your child’s learning and is therefore extremely valuable.

Your child has also been given passwords to Times Table Rockstars and Purple Mash which they can use at home as much as they want. Children can use Times Table Rockstars to test their speed and accuracy when recalling their times tables and they can work on their ICT skills using Purple Mash. There are lots of other resources to be found on Purple Mash too, including games to help consolidate children's Maths and English knowledge.





Our P.E. lessons take place on Monday and Thursday afternoons. Please ensure your child has a full P.E. kit in school (plain blue shorts, white T-shirt and pumps). Putting their name in each item will help us greatly if kit is ever misplaced.


Thank you!

Miss Wood, Mrs Holland-Powell & Mrs Whitaker
