Welcome to Year 3!


In Year 3, you can look forward to learning lots of exciting things, such as how to make bread, why the Romans invaded Britain, how light reaches our eyes, what is in our local area, how a volcano erupts and much more!


Important Information


Reading Books
Children will bring home a reading book to keep for one week. They are only allowed to choose a new book if their old book has been finished and an adult has confirmed this in writing in their planner.  Please remind them to place their book and planner independently into the book box in the classroom. The children need to aim to read one book per week if they are to progress in their reading.


Children will begin to receive homework following the parents evening.  The children will receive short Maths and/or English tasks to complete every day from Monday to Friday (usually one question based on work in class).

P.E. Kit
The children will take part in two sessions of P.E. a week. Your children will be taught by their teacher and by sports coaches. The days will be confirmed in the children's planners. Our P.E coaches aim to be outside most sessions weather permitting so children will need an outdoor P.E kit including a sweat top and trousers / leggings. Please ensure your child has their full kit in school every week.  During the summer term, children need to have an outdoor PE kit in school and a cap and sun cream, particularly on hot days.

Your child can bring in fresh fruit or a low-fat, low-sugar, low-salt snack for break times. These will be stored in their trays or school bags on arrival every morning.

Water Bottles
We encourage children to have a clear, plastic named water bottle in school at all times. It must be plain, still water that can be refilled at school. For hygiene reasons we ask that children take them home each Friday night to be washed and refilled.


Please ensure your entire child's uniform and PE kit is named. Headbands and bobbles should be small and functional and match the school colour scheme.



Urgent messages can be passed to the teachers via Mrs Pritchard in the school office, by phone (0161 338 4290) or email (


If you wish to contact the teachers please use your child's planner and have them pass this to their class teacher on the day.


If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us.

Kind regards


Miss Jones, Miss Marshall and Miss Duffy
