Class 3S 2016 - 2017

Mrs Sayer

Mrs Sayer

Welcome to Year 3. The Year 3 team are: Mrs Sayer, Miss Newton and Mrs Allen.


Please note the school's homework policy has recently been updated.   

Each week, Year 3 children will be expected to learn their spellings, earn a Mathletics certificate, practise their focus times tables and have four entries in their reading journals.


We are really trying to promote reading for enjoyment and pleasure, and it would be greatly appreciated if you had some time to discuss and share books with your child at home. The reading journals will be checked every Monday for the previous week and a record will be kept of the reading completed by your child. Each time they complete their reading for the week, they will receive a stamp and rewards can be earned.


Mathletics certificates will be checked on a Friday morning ready for achievement assembly. Log in information can be found in your child's reading journal and points are reset weekly. Mathletics can be accessed at:

Times Tables

Individual times tables will also continue to be tested in school. Children will know the times table that they are working on that week. 

Some suggested websites that children could use to support learning their times tables:



Spellings will continue to be given out on a Monday and tested on a Friday. 


This half term PE will be on a Tuesday and will be athletics. As always, please make sure that your child's PE kit is in school all week. 

What are we learning?

This term our topic is Rainforests! We will be doing lots of exciting work including:

  • Literacy - Running Wild by Michael Morpurgo. 
  • Science - Animals and their Habitats. 
  • Geography - Amazon Rainforest.
