Welcome to Y3

I hope that you find this page useful. I will use it to provide information relevant to the Y3 curriculum or to inform you about upcoming events/trips and to celebrate the wonderful learning that your children will be doing over the year.

In addition to this page, I will continue to use  our Class Dojo to communicate with you This is particularly useful for urgent class messages or requests.  

 If you require any further information that is not available on this page, please do get in touch and I will do my very best to help.

You will find lots of information in the files section below which will be added to as the year progresses. 


General Information:


Mrs Houghton - class teacher

Mrs Hayton - teaching assistant

Mrs Connelly - will be working with the children on a Wednesday morning and Thursday afternoon.  


Our P.E days are Monday and Thursday. Monday is our indoor session and Friday outdoor although this often changes!!   Children should come to school wearing their P.E. kit on these days.


Children are encouraged to drink plenty during the day.  Please ensure that they bring a suitable plastic water bottle to school daily.  These should be taken home each evening and refilled for the next day.  


We follow the same homework policy and routine throughout the school.  Homework  will be given on a Monday and should be completed by the following Monday.  Most of the homework set is done online through Purple Mash.   

Spellings - given out on a Monday  and are tested the following Wednesday.

Reading should be done every evening.  Diaries are checked once weekly and two/three entries are expected each week.

Additional homework such as research may be given where appropriate.
