Croeso i blwyddyn 3

Welcome to Year 3 


Dear Parents,


A warm welcome to Year 3! Firstly I would like to introduce myself. I am Mrs Reilly, the year 3 class teacher this year.  I am very much looking forward to getting to know your children this year and meeting as many of you as possible. You will find that some of the routines are the same as when your child was in year 2, but there are some changes.


Year 3 are also supported by Mrs Harding and Mrs Smith the Teaching Assistants. Please continue to use the home-school books provided for any messages or questions you may have. It is really helpful if dinner money is placed in an envelope with the child’s name and class written on the front and either left in their folder for collection by staff or placed in the Year 3 basket in the foyer.


Please ensure all clothing is clearly labelled.


For breaktime the children can either bring their own fruit or it can be bought for 30p. We encourage the children to drink water during the day and we have school water bottles for sale if you would like to purchase one.





English homework – This needs to be completed by Wednesday


P.E. - kit needed


Maths homework-This needs to be completed by Friday




PE  Outdoor kit can be worn to school


 P.E./Games kit- Indoors- shorts/plain t-shirt. Outdoors-tracksuit/warm top and suitable footwear e.g. trainers

This year we are introducing the 'walk a mile' initiative. Children will be walkiing a mile every morning to improve their general health and wellbeing. As a result children will need suitable footwear daily.    

The homework will always reinforce what is being learnt in the classroom.

Reading and the enjoyment that books give is such an important part of Year 3 and during the year your child will have daily opportunities to read, individually, with a partner and as part of a small group. Please ensure that any school reading books are kept with the home-school book in the folder and returned to school every day. All the children will benefit from continued reading support and sharing of books at home.

Our class author is Roald Dahl and the children will enjoy a selection of his books throughout the year.


Further information about the topics and themes we will be studying this year will follow shortly.


If you have any concerns regarding anything please do not hesitate to come and see me either before school or after.


Many thanks for your continued support,


Mrs Reilly (Class Teacher)
