Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

During our first few weeks we will focus on settling the children back into school and ensuring that they have the skills and knowledge required to be successful in Year 3.


Year 3 Team

Orangutan Class will be taught by Mrs Manston (Monday) and Mrs Tillin (Tuesday - Friday)

Panda Class will be taught by Mrs Goddard (Monday and Tuesday) and Miss Jones (Wednesday - Friday)

Mrs McMullan, Mrs Carter and Mrs Todd will support the children in class as well as run afternoon booster groups.


Please don't hesitate to approach your class teacher if you have any concerns, problems or questions. Each child has a Home School Book which you can use to communicate messages in or you can ring the office to arrange a phone appointment. 


General Reminders

Water bottles:

Please ensure that your child have a named water bottle in school each day that it is filled with fresh water. A reminder that juice and squash are not allowed in class.


Please ensure all of your child’s clothing is labelled. All named clothing is returned instantly, whereas everything unnamed goes to lost property.

Pencil cases:

Please do not send your child to school with a pencil case. We provide all the necessary equipment as we do not have large enough trays for pencil cases. If your child is writing in pen, we will provide them with a handwriting pen which will be replaced when the old one runs out. 


Physical Education

Our P.E. day this year is Tuesday. Children will need to wear their P.E. kit to school on this day. They can wear tracksuit bottoms/leggings and their school jumper over their kit on colder days.

PE kit:

-Plain light blue polo shirt (with no visible logos).

-Black or navy shorts for PE.

-White socks.

PE and Jewellery:

Long hair must be tied up. If ear-rings are worn they should be taken out for PE. If they are newly pierced please provide tape to cover the ear-rings until such a time as they can be removed. Only studs should be worn.

The only other item of jewellery permitted in school is a wrist watch. This also needs to be removed for PE.



The children have all now been given a green homework book. In this homework book is their TTRockstars login, a homework treat stamp sheet, and their weekly spellings.


Each week the children are expected to do:

  • 5 or more reads, recorded in their reading journal
  • 80%+ in their spelling test (or evidence of sufficient practise in their homework books – we suggest at least 5 practises each week)
  • 15 games completed on TTRockstars


The children need to complete all of these things each week to earn their homework stamp.

Homework books and reading journals both need to be handed in each Monday for homework to be checked and given out, so please help to remind your children to bring them in each week.
