Welcome to Year 3

Class 5 Teachers: Mrs Taylor and Mrs Peach Class 6 Teacher: Mrs Grimshaw  Teaching Assistant: Mrs Crowhurst


Please find a list of fun and educational websites that you might enjoy exploring.  We have categorised the list by subject. Subject Specific Websites

Important: In these uncertain times, we expect that the children will be using computers and the internet more than ever, so safer internet messages are particularly important. Please refer to our INTERNET SAFETY page for regular updates and advice. 




We want you to feel as supported as possible in this time of uncertainty so if there are any problems at all (no matter how small you think they are), please do not hesitate to contact us using the email listed below -

Miss Littlewood - class6@stannsrcprimary.co.uk


As the children have completed all of their weekly spellings for this year they may now notice that they are being set a mixture of these on Spelling Shed to practise. If you would like to continue learning these over summer, you could perhaps have a look at the Year 3 and 4 spelling list and choose 5 words a week to go over, so that they are fresh in your mind ready for when you start Year 4. You could even look these up in a dictionary and write them in a sentence! Have a look at the list here: Year 3 and 4 spelling list. 


We realise that sometimes it can be difficult to complete all of the tasks however, it is very important that you are reading every day. Kiara in Class 6 has kept us updated on all of the exciting books she has been reading and she told us about a free book by J.K. Rowling which is online called, 'The Ickabog'. She has also very kindly wrote a review of the story so far for you to read if you want to know a little bit more about the story.


If you want to read the story follow the link here:  https://www.theickabog.com/read-the-story/

Happy reading!

P.S. There is also a competition on the website for you to create the illustrations for the story!!


These are the pictures we have received so far of Mulberry Cottage and we are loving them! What a talented bunch of Year 3’s you are!!

These are drawn by the super talented Robyn, Rosie, Linus, Bailey-Rae, Kiara, Amelie, Alessia, Maisie, Mila and Abigail!


Below is a suggested timetable for this week. We understand it may be difficult to complete all the work set - do not worry!

Weekly Timetable

Our P.E. day is on Tuesday so please ensure that your child has full kit for this day.

Reading books can be changed every day but we recommend that books are kept long enough to be read a few times in order to build fluency and comprehension of the text.  Books must be changed at least once a week to ensure progression through the reading scheme.

Homework will be given out on a Friday to be completed by Wednesday of the following week.  Each week there will usually be one piece of English and one piece of Maths homework.  All homework is to be completed in pencil and to the standard we expect in school.

New spellings will be given on a Friday.  These will be written in their beige spelling books.  Please ensure your child brings this to school each Friday.  Spellings from the previous week will be tested on a Friday morning. 

You should aim to listen to your child read every day for at least 10 minutes.  See the Literacy page for some top tips!


Handy equipment to have at home: 

* Pencil,

* pencil sharpener

* 30cm ruler

* glue stick

* pencil crayons

* dictionary

* thesaurus 


Upcoming Dates:

Letters about the upcoming Sacramental Programme have now been sent home.  For further information, please contact Fr Ged at the church.
