Year 3
Year 3 enjoying the library
Here in year 3 we thoroughly enjoy going to the library and exploring all the books. We enjoy listening to a story and then we get to pick 2 books to borrow! Ask us about our favourite books.

Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to Year 3 Topaz Class!

We are all very excited about the year ahead and are looking forward to working alongside your child and in partnership with yourself.

Summer Reading Scheme

Throughout the Summer, your child was expected to participate in the Summer Reading Challenge, where they needed to read six different books. Therefore, in order to show that your child has completed such homework, they will be expected to bring in their ‘Reading Challenge’ medal by Monday 7th September 2015. Alternatively, if they did not do this they need to bring 6 written book reviews.

Below is some information about Year 3 which I hope you will find useful:

Subjects to be covered this term:

Literacy text: Stig of the Dump

Numeracy: We will follow the Wandsworth Scheme

Science: Rocks, Volcanoes and Fossils

History: The Stone Age

Art: Related to topic

ICT: Switched on ICT


Both Literacy and Numeracy will be handed out on a Friday with the expectation that it will be returned the following Wednesday.  Therefore allowing your child two days to come and speak to myself or Lorren if the homework is not understood or they are having difficulties. In addition to this homework, your child will be given weekly spellings to learn, both at home and within school. We will continue with next steps which need to be completed every day, and brought back into school for the next day.


It is vital that your child reads on a regular basis in order to further the development of both their reading and writing skills. In addition to this, it would be beneficial if yourself or an older sibling could discuss the text with your child and ask them questions about its content, in order to help develop their comprehension skills. Your child should bring their pack folder with their reading book and home-school planner into school everyday. When your child reads at home, please encourage your child to write comments and opinions about what they have read in their diaries independently.


Children will need to have their PE kit in school every Tuesday. For health and safety reasons, it is vitally important that all children are dressed appropriately for PE. All children should wear the school PE kit, which consists of a white t-shirt and either blue shorts or dark tracksuit bottoms. Year 3 will also be the first group to go swimming every Monday for 6 weeks. Please make sure your child has a swimming costume and a swimming hat.

We hope this information has been useful. If you do wish to discuss any of the above, please feel free to speak to me at the end of the school day.

Thank you for all your support and we look forward to working alongside you.

Jodie, Lorren and Ayesha.
