Welcome to Year 3
Your child’s teacher is:
Mrs Grennan (Class Teacher)
Mrs Pope (PPA)
Miss Evans (TA)
As your child moves up to KS2, there are a few changes that you should be
aware of such as school times, homework as well as a few others!
School starts at 9.00 am. A member of staff will be on the Junior yard
from 8.50 am. If you would like your child to come to school earlier than
this, breakfast club is available from 8.15 am. Children are not permitted
on the Junior Yard earlier than 8.50 without a parent/guardian.
School ends at 3.15 pm and parents wait on the Junior Yard until class
teachers dismiss their classes.
School dinner money should be paid on Monday. All money should be placed
in an envelope with your child’s name, class and amount clearly labelled.
Apples and bananas are available to purchase from the KS2 Fruit Shop at a
cost of 20p each. Year 6 pupils collect the money on a Monday.
KS2 pupils have Pupil Planners instead of Reading Records. Pupils will be
issued with these during their first week. It is very important that your
child brings their planner to school every day and we expect parents to
check the planners daily/weekly and sign them every week. The planners
are also used as a home/school link as well as to issue parents evening
If a planner is lost, a replacement planner will cost £5.00.
Pupils have homework on a fortnightly basis. Homework is
in the form of a grid – some compulsory tasks and some
voluntary. Dojo’s will be given for the number of tasks
Year 3 PE day will be Thursday. Your child will need to bring their PE kit to
school on this day. PE consists of t-shirt, shorts/ joggers and trainers.
There will be an emphasis on learning times tables, spelling patterns and
reading in Year 3. A letter will be sent via schoop/website giving details of
literacy, maths and science topics covered this term.
It is really important that you make us aware of any issues or worries that
your child may have so that we can deal with them early on. Also, it is very
important that you inform staff of any medical issues as soon as possible.
This year we will be sending letters and information home via SCHOOP. If
you have already downloaded SCHOOP, please download from Google play or
apple app store. The school code is 7749.
We aim to make your child’s transition from Foundation Phase to KS2 as
stress free and as smooth as possible. If you do have any concerns at all,
please do not hesitate to contact a member of staff – we are more than
happy to put your mind at ease.
This is a very exciting time in your child’s learning journey.
