In Year 3 children are encouraged to read every night and record this in their reading diaries.

All children have access to a wide variety of books. Children have the opportunity to choose a book of their choice and also a book levelled at their ability. Parents can support their children's learning through reading with them every day, taking children to the local library to read about our topics, and by practicing maths with them. 

It helps when parents ask questions about the books children are reading. Example questions were provided by Mrs Moore at parents' meetings.

We hope that you can join us fortnightly for our class celebration, when you are invited to share and celebrate learning and see our certificates and rewards being presented.

You are welcome to join us for Welcome Worship. These special worship sessions are led by the children once per term. Join us in the Chapel after drop off for some refreshments and the children will come along to lead worship - its' a great way to catch up with other parents in the class too. Our Welcome Worship dates can be found in our diary dates.

We welcome parental involvement in the life of our school. If you are able to visit the school or help in any way, please contact one of us. 

If you have any questions about year 3 please do not hesitate to come and see us, our door is always open.
