Dream Believe Achieve

Year 3

Our teacher in Year 4 is Mr Frankland and he is helped by Mrs Birtwell and Miss Minton.

It has been an exciting start to Year 3 and we are looking forward to teaching you this next year and hope you will enjoy your time in Year 3.

Some work will be challenging, but it’s lots of fun too!

PE

Please ensure your child comes to school in their PE kit on every day during this first term. We encourage the children not to wear any jewellery to school. If your child wears earrings please remove them prior to our PE lessons.

Reading

In Year Three, your child will be given the opportunity to change their home reading book every day.  Any book that needs changing needs to be accompanied by your child’s Reading Record. Please write a comment in the Reading Diary to say that the book is finished. You may also write comments based on your child’s home reading. The children will be given a stamp every time they read with an adult and they can collect these stamps and swap them for prizes!

Home Learning 

The children are expected to read at least three times every week. The children should also access TT Rockstars to practise their times tables as often as they like. We also have access to IDL for reading and maths so the children can access this at home whenever they would like. 

Toast and Snacks

On arrival in school, the children receive toast every day. At playtime, the children can bring in a snack to school. We are a healthy school so this snack should be healthy. Fruit, vegetables and small cheeses are perfect. Children should not be bringing sweets or crisps for snack.

Our Cemetery Trip

Year 3 embarked on a trip to Burnley Cemetery. We did this as part of our Rocks and Soils topic in Science. We found the difference between certain rocks and the impact of weathering on the stones.
