Welcome to Year 3


Our teachers are Miss Savignano, Mrs Reilly and Mrs Kinally. 



This half term our  Imaginative Learning Project is 'Mighty Metals' We will be looking at what different materials are made from, how forces work on objects and what materials are magnetic. Also, we will be getting our creative juices flowing in Art and Design and Technology. 



Parents if you want to help your child learn their times tables at home in a fun and interactive way you can go on Times Tables Rockstars!


Don't forget to look at the Maths section of our website  (found in the curriculum section) for more games and apps you can use at home to support your child's learning in Maths.

Mathletics is a great competitive way to improve your child's maths knowledge! 





Please encourage your child to use joined handwriting.

Why is reading so important?

Evidence suggests that children who read for enjoyment every day not only perform better in reading tests than those who don’t, but also develop a broader vocabulary, increased general knowledge and a better understanding of other cultures.


In fact, there’s evidence to suggest that reading for pleasure is more likely to determine whether a child does well at school than their social or economic background. 

What difference could I make as a parent?

The short answer is: a lot! Parents are by far the most important educators in a child’s life and it’s never too young for a child to start, even if you’re only reading with your child for a few minutes a day.



Maths/grammar homework will be handed out each week on a Friday and need to be returned by the following Wednesday. 


Spellings usually go out on a Monday or Tuesday and are tested on the following Tuesday. 


Reading and Times tables should be practiced regularly.
