Values and Virtues-

Pupil of the week-

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. We will learn about light and shadows linking to our English book- The owl who was afraid of the dark, then magnets linking to our English book- The iron man and finally the exciting history of Worcester in our local study.


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!
  • Spellings will be given every two weeks and some time will be spent in class learning them. These will be tested at some point during the week. Children must practice at home when possible as repetition helps them to retain the spellings. Please help your child to learn their spellings as well as understand the meaning of the words.
  • Homework – From Friday the children will bring home a homework sheet with a choice of activities.  An activity needs to be completed every week and handed in on Thursday. 

General reminders


  • Please ensure all children have appropriate footwear for woodland warriors in school. We will have Woodland Warriors on Thursday afternoons – 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. 


On Tuesday 4th June Year 3 First Holy Communion children hosted an afternoon tea for the parishioners of St Joseph's Church. They looked magnificent in their beautiful First Holy Communion dresses and suits as they chatted happily to the parishioners. They displayed impeccable manners and were gracious hosts. We have received many delightful thank you letters from our visitors thanking the children for a wonderful afternoon. We hope this will be a new tradition that continues to grow each year.

Well done children! We are very proud of you!

Afternoon Tea


Art Super Learning Day

Boogy Bounce workshop

We had a fabulous time on Thursday 23rd May trying out Boogie Bounce workshops. They had 15 minutes each on a mini trampoline doing an intensive workout to music. As I’m sure you can see from the photos the children were really showing off how high they could jump. I felt exhausted just watching them!

Our Visit to Bishops wood

Year 3 visited Bishops Wood today for hands on learning about the Stone Age to Iron Age. After watching the children today, I have no doubt they would do a good job of surviving! They learnt how to hunt, forage, light fires, knot fishing nets, weave the walls of roundhouses, grind flour, build shelters and leave messages using vivid cave paintings. They were all extremely well behaved and had a fabulous time!
