Welcome to Year 3

Mrs Stray, Mrs Blom and Mrs Cooke would like to welcome you to the Year 3 webpage.  Within Year 3 the children are also supported by Mrs Evans, Mrs Gilbert and Mrs Haselgrove. In addition Mrs Van Der Werf provides 1:1 and small group support.  

Through this webpage we hope to share the curriculum covered and some of the exciting learning experienced by the children.

Homework and Useful Links

Normally, Spellings, Multiplication Tables, Handwriting, Numeracy and a Literacy based homework is handed out on a Friday with their homework diary and both should be handed in the following Wednesday (in accordance with the School Homework Policy).  Occasionally, additional topic based, Science or talktime homework (as a quick discussion / note taking task which supports learning the following day) may be sent home.  The children are expected to spend approximately twenty minutes on each piece of homework set.  We encourage parents to use the homework diary to communicate their child's understanding and indicate whether the work was entirely independent.   Although children have reading sessions in school, it is expected that they read for at least ten minutes, each day at home.
