We’re asking Year 3 children to take part in the Times Table Rock Stars to help their class win a mini tournament against Year 4 taking place between 1st December and 7th December.
It’s a great way for children to improve their times table fluency and gain points for their class.
Make sure your child takes part to help their House win the challenge. All children have their own logins for Times Table Rock Stars, if you need a reminder of their login, please email the school office at email@example.com
Welcome to an exciting year of learning and growth in Year 3! Year 3 marks the beginning of KS2, which means the children will be starting to work more independently on a variety of exciting and fun themes. We are thrilled to have you as part of our class, and we can't wait to embark on a journey of discovery and achievement together.

You can support your child at home by helping them to learn their all-important weekly spellings — these are tested once a week.
Reading is key this year and there are plenty of ways you can help. It is still important to listen to your child read regularly. Ask questions about what they’re reading. This will encourage your child to think deeply about their reading, whether they’re reading aloud or independently. A fun way to encourage expression is to use silly voices – and even to make the occasional deliberate mistake – as allowing your child to correct you helps them to see why certain punctuation changes the way we read aloud.
Give your child access to as many different styles of writing as you can. This will assist with their reading fluency and expand their vocabulary and knowledge.
In maths, you can support your child at home by practising the relevant times tables (3, 4, and 8 times tables – as well as the 2, 5, and 10 times tables from Year 1 and 2) regularly. This can be done in many ways and different children respond to different styles.
Please ensure that your child comes to school in their school PE uniform on their designated day. This year PE will be on a Wednesday and Thursday.
