Year 3 Information


As you may already be aware, during the academic year we hold a number of “Prayer Weeks” in school. The aim of our prayer weeks is to introduce the children to different forms of prayer as well as continuing to provide the children with the opportunity to develop their own personal prayer life. Each class sets aside some time every day to pray together using a variety of different prayer activities (a different one each day). At the start of the summer term, we usually hold our “Easter Prayer Week.” This year, it was planned for the week beginning 27th April. As things are a little different this year, we are asking for your support with this. On the Catholic Life page of the website is a selection of different prayer activities. Perhaps as a family, you could choose a different prayer activity to share in together each day during this week. Some of the activities will be familiar to the children and they may already have their favourites. Some will be new activities. All of the ideas require very little preparation. Maybe, after the prayer week is over, you may like to continue to share some of these prayer ideas together. If you do try out some of the ideas, please share with us how you have got on.

Summer Reading Challenge




Welcome to the class page for Year 3, here you will find out some information about timetable and class expectations. Year 3 marks the beginning of KS2, which means the children will be starting to work more independently on a variety of exciting and fun themes, such as the Ancient Egyptians. 



Year 3 also marks an important year for the Catholic children in their journey through the Sacraments. This year they will take part in Reconciliation and then make their First Holy Communion. These are very special times which will help bring the children closer to God. More information will be given to you about these events closer to the time.


In Year 3 you will receive the following homework, we expect homework to be completed on time.

  • Reading - This should continue nightly with a comment from yourself three times a week when you have heard your child read. Year 3 staff will check reading records regularly to make sure it is happening.
  • Times table practice - This should again be happening regularly at home to make sure you are confident with your times tables. Times table rock stars passwords are in the back of the children’s reading records!
  • Your child will receive a grid with all of the spellings for the half term. We then work through these weekly. Spelling tests are every Friday. 
  • Homework – your child will bring home a homework sheet with a choice of activities.  An activity needs to be completed every week and handed in by Thursday at the latest. 

General reminders


  • Please ensure all children have appropriate footwear for woodland warriors in school. We will have Woodland Warriors on Wednesday mornings – children will need wellies if possible as it can get muddy.  They will be provided with water proofs to go over their uniform so they will not need any special clothing. 
  • Water bottles: Please ensure that your child brings a water bottle for the classroom, containing water only.
