Welcome to Year Three 2020-2021

Class Teacher – Mrs. J McKinstry

Learning Support Assistant – Mrs. C Haigh

Welcome back to our new school year 2020-2021!

On this page, you will find out about the exciting learning that takes place in our class, what we have been up to, and useful information for learning at home.


Your child will be given homework which will enhance the curriculum that they are following in school and will help to improve their learning. We greatly appreciate parental support and encourage parents to become involved in their children’s learning. Research has shown that support from home significantly improves a child’s achievement in school.

Spellings will be given on a Monday to be completed by Friday for a test.



To help your child develop a love of reading, all children are given daily opportunities to read either during Shared Reading, Independent Reading or Reading for Pleasure sessions. Your child is encouraged to bring books of their own choice or choose a book from our class library.

All children will read with the class teacher at least once a week. The expectation is that your child should read for 20 minutes per day to develop their pace, fluency and understanding of a range of texts. Using Accelerated Reader quizzes, your child will complete a short comprehension quiz after they have completed reading their home reading book.

Multiplication Tables

By the end of Year 3, the children are required to know the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, and 10 times tables. Therefore, learning their times tables will be a part of the mathematics homework each week, with a test on a Friday.


Year 3 will be having P.E on Wednesdays this term. Please make sure the children come to school dressed in their kit.
