Our Class Noticeboard


Useful information

  • Reading books will be changed on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Please ensure that reading books/diaries are brought into school every day, even if your child's book does not need changing. 

  • Homework and handwriting activities will be sent home each week on a Friday, 

  • Spellings will also be sent home on a Friday, to be tested in school the following Friday.

  • Our class book this half-term is 'Dancing Bear' by Michael Morpurgo. If your child has a copy of this book or can borrow one from the library please can they bring it into school, so they can follow the text as we read aloud as a class.


  • To help us learn our times tables we use TT Rockstars! Now we are in Year 3, the children should know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables. By the end of the year we also need to know the 3, 4 and 8 times tables.

  • All children in Year 3 also have a Sumdog account. Sumdog is a personalised maths and spelling practice that includes lots of great games.

This year in Literacy, we are following the Pathways to Write scheme. Pathways to Write is built around units of work which develop vocabulary, reading and writing skills through a mastery approach. Key skills are taught and repeated, allowing children multiple opportunities throughout each unit to apply their skills until they can be mastered fully. 
Here are the class texts we will be focusing on in Year 3:
