Year 3

We really hope you have a lovely half term break and the weather stays nice. 

For the last term we will continue with our Invaders and Settlers project.  

Welcome to Year 3


We send home up to ten spelling every Thursday for the children to learn. We teach these words to the children to help the understand the spelling pattern. Please practice these spellings during the week. We will test them every Wednesday week.

We strongly encourage the children to learn 2,3,4,8 and 10 times table. We running a times table test every Thursday. Please see the times table sheet in your child's book bag and help them to recall the facts as quickly and as accuracy as possible.

We also ask you to read with your child on a daily basis.


P.E days
P.E. days will be different for the whole of the 6th and final term before the Summer break for both year 3 classes. Children in both Kauri and Hawthorn need to wear normal school uniform on Monday, Wednesday and Friday.  Children need to come dressed in P.E. kit on the following days:

Tuesdays (Fundamental sports)

Thursdays ( Badminton)



In Year 3 we are learning the multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Alongside this, continue to practice the 2, 5 and 10s.


Also continue to practice the number bonds to 10, 20, 50 and 100.


Please refer to the maths policy for the methods we use and teach in Year 3.



Please encourage your child to read at home and with an adult as often as possible. Have a go at reading different materials eg fiction, non-fiction, magazines and so on! 


Make sure your child comes to school every day with their reading book.


We have sent home a reading bookmark to help you think of ways to help you and your child have a conversation about the book he/she is reading. Please keep this book in your child's reading record. 




We will be sending spellings home every two weeks. Please work with your child to help them to learn them. They are really enjoying the spelling activities we do in class and everyone is making great progress. If you want any advice or tips on making spelling activities fun, please come and see us in year 3.  



Thank you for your continued support,

Mr Nolan and Mrs Thomas
