Year 3- Summer 1

Year 3 are continuing swimming lessons on Thursday’s in Summer 1 so please continue to bring your kits to school.

Year 3 enjoyed designing and making their healthy sandwiches. They were asked to design a healthy sandwich- not just a sandwich they would like to eat! Below are some photos of their creations.


In Spring 2 3 children took part in a Spelling Bee competition. They were superb competitors and narrowly missed winning the competition. The children were such good spellers it went to a tie break using Year 5/6 words. Huge congratulations to the girls for their achievement.


Below are the spelling lists for the next half term. Please help your child to learn the correct spellings each week. These words have been chosen from the Year 3 / 4 spelling curriculum. This half terms focus is suffixes. They will be tested in school on a Thursday.


Week beginning

Spellings to learn


measure, treasure, pleasure, creature, picture, nature, adventure



division, invasion, confusion, decision, collision, television,



poisonous, dangerous, famous, various, jealous, enormous, tremendous

Year 3 Homework Project

Please support your child to create a Maths game.

This can be linked to any maths concepts for example;

*Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication or Division

*Shape, space and measures (e.g. time, length, mass, capacity)

The game can be a board game, a card game or computer based.

Please send your games into school by Friday 7th June and we look forward to playing them!


Homework will be given out on a Monday every week apart from the week before a holiday. Maths you will find online on Times tables practise will be given weekly. Spellings will also be given on a sheet for the half term and these will be tested on Thursday. Across the year the children will be given the opportunity to complete some Home


Learning Projects. More information about these will be given at a later date.


If your child is taking part in the Sacramental Programme this year, you will be contacted by your parish in the near future. This is an important and wonderful part of Year 3 and something that we hope many of the children will take part in.

Punctuality and attendance is of great importance and therefore please ensure your child is on time for school every day as lateness does disrupt learning opportunities. Please ensure your child is in school ready to start lessons by 8.55am.

 If you have any concerns or questions regarding your child please feel free to approach us at the end of the day. If neither of us are available, or this is not convenient for you, then please make an appointment via the school office.

 We look forward to working with both you, and your child, and hope between us we can make it a happy and enjoyable year.
