Welcome to Year 3!
Welcome to Year 3! You are now in Key Stage 2! this year you will learn lots of new things and have lots of fun too! Here are a few things to help you start off the year...
- Children are not provided with fruit in the afternoon break time anymore. Instead, they may bring in a snack from home to eat during morning playtime. We ask that this snack is a healthy one, such as a breakfast bar or a piece of fruit. Crisp, sweets or chocolate bars are not allowed.
- Children are allowed to drink water throughout the day. Therefore, we ask that you provide a water bottle that they can keep in class. These will be washed out and refilled regularly.
- Reading books will be changed once per week. We spend lots of time reading with every child through the week and we ask that you also read with your child, make a brief comment and return the book every day. If they complete their reading book, encourage them to read anything else! We would love to hear about the other books they read.
- Children in Y3W (Mr Wright) will be doing PE as normal in school on Thursday afternoons, so we ask that you bring a PE kit in as soon as possible so that children are ready to start. Y3S (Miss Smith) will be going swimming on a Thursday afternoon this term.
See below for more information!

As part of our Stone Age topic we held an outdoor day to help us learn about that period of time! We did lots of activities like making our own mud paint, cave paintings, den building, fire making and orienteering!
Take a look at the pictures!

This week was humanities week. Each class studied a significant person from the past. In Year 3 we studied Anne Frank. We loved learning all about her and why she is important for us today. On Monday, we had a special visitor called Mrs Hensey, who taught us all about the Holocaust. She came back to visit on Friday too, where we showed her our work and invited her to a special collective worship in memory of Anne Frank and those who suffered during the Holocaust. Through the week we wrote our very own version of her diary, 'Kitty'.
