Year 3

Please Click HERE for more information on what will be taught throughout the year.

SATS & End of Year Assessments

There are SATS tests in English and Maths. The statutory SATS take place in Year 2 and Year 6 and these results are reported to the government. In Year 3 – 5 the children complete the optional SATS and these results, along with teacher assessments throughout the year inform the final judgement.

Homework

As you can see, we have a packed curriculum. In order to meet all the requirements of the National Curriculum, homework plays a vital part in our year. The children will need a quiet place to complete their work, away from distractions. As a rule, they will have between 15 and 30 minutes every night. All homework will be written down in their homework diaries.If the children need support with their homework it is important that we all support them with it. The children should ALWAYS attempt homework by themselves but should they be struggling or becoming confused please do help them with it. Once again, if there are any problems, please let me know.

Reading

At BWJPS, reading for pleasure is extremely important. To encourage this, we have a reading for pleasure slot every day where we encourage children to read a variety of books. If you wish to help us provide these by generously donating a book to our Y3 classroom, you will find our Amazon Wishlist here. 

Equipment

It is really important that children have all the required equipment in school all the time and that all uniform and PE kit is clearly labelled. It is also important that kit is checked each term to ensure that it still fits and is still suitable for PE lessons.

PE Kit

Outdoor – Navy blue tracksuit, white t-shirt and trainers

Indoor – Navy blue shorts, white t-shirt and black pumps

Other Equipment – Once again please label all equipment and replace it when required.
  • Clear plastic water bottle
  • Homework folder
  • H.B. Pencils (a packet of 10 with the child’s name on the box)
  • Rubber 2 (both with the child’s name on)
  • Pencil sharpener
  • Set of coloured pencils
  • Set of felt tip pens
  • 3 small glue sticks (labelled with the child’s name on)
  • 30 cm ruler, which measures in both cm. and mm. (with child’s name on)
  • Dictionary – Collins new compact dictionary or Collins compact English dictionary or Oxford colour dictionary
  • 2 Pencil cases large enough to colour pencils in one and all other stationary equipment, including the 30 cm ruler in the other. (Keep as basic as possible)
  • A memory stick with your child’s name on (2GB)
  • Activity book (colouring, puzzles) for wet breaks
Please remember that if there is anything you need, do come and see me – lets work together to make your child’s year 3 in primary school a very happy, rewarding and successful one!

Stone Age Cave Art

The children got in the role of Stone Age characters. They went in their ‘cave’ and created their very own Stone Age animals. In the distance they could hear the sound of a crackling fire-just like in Stone Age times! I’m really impressed with their finished pieces 😊

Well done year 3!

Writing Competition Winners

Last half term, our head and deputy heads set up a new writing competition for Years 3 to 5.

Channa (Y3), Calum (Y4) and Jessica (Y5) were the first lucky winners and each received 15 Dojo points! Years 3 to 5 look forward to next half term’s writing theme.
