Homework will be given out on a Thursday. Often homework will be something for you to do or to talk through rather than written work that needs handing in, but when something does need to be handed in, please send it back in by Tuesday.

To find out what homework Year 3 has this week please visit our Homework Page.

The Year 3 Curriculum

Please click on the link below for  key documents which will give you as a parent or carer an overview of what our Year 3 pupils will be learning this year and the skills that they will need to develop.

Click here to find out more about each topic and, as ever, if you have any questions about your child’s learning then please don’t hesitate to get in touch.



KS2 children can go to their classrooms from 8:40am where there are members of staff there to register them.

We would ask that you encourage your child to be independent when coming in to school. It is very important for your child’s development for them to be able to take responsibility for themselves and their own property.

At the end of the day, Year 3 children are collected from the main playground. We ask parents collecting children from Year 3 to stand behind the red line. We work with a “hands up” collection system. Your child will not be sent to an adult collecting until a member of staff has seen who is there to collect. If someone different is due to collect your child please indicate so in the communication diary.

At least 2 members of the staff will be available at the beginning and end of each day to answer any questions that you may have.  Any of the staff will be able to answer your questions or direct you to the appropriate person.  If you wish to make an appointment to see the teachers, this can be arranged at a mutually convenient time.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to speak to any member of the Key Stage 2 team.
