Year 3 2019 - 2020

Miss O'Malley

Welcome to year 3! We have had a great start to the year so far and the children have settled in beautifully.


This half term the children will be taking part in swimming lessons at Irlam pool. Swimming lessons will take place every Wednesday unitl January 31st 2019. Please ensure that your child brings their swimming kit into school every Tuesday. Swimming hats must be worn by all pupils.



One piece of English and Maths homework will be set for your child each week and aims to consolidate learning the children have done throughout the school week. Homework will be set usually on a Tuesday.


Your child is given spellings each week based on our particular spelling pattern focus for the week. We practice the spelling pattern in class and talk about what the words mean. Please encourage your child to practise their spellings every day. Additional homework will be set from time to time which will focus on spellings. Files to Download section below.



In Year 3 children are still expected to read at least 3 times a week at home, please help your child to keep a log of this in their planner so that we can keep track nof their reading. Additional homework will be set based on reading from time to time. 

Times Tables

Each week we will focus on a set of times tables - these will be sent home for the children to practise and learn. They will have a weekly times tables test. They can be tested on a variety of tables from their previous sets sent home.
