Meet the Teacher Meeting

You are invited to meet the Year 3 team on Thursday 20th September at 9.05am in the Studio to find out about what your child will learn this year.



Year 3 Autumn Term Curriculum


At the beginning of the year children will be given a reading book at their appropriate level. They can then take this book home and return it to school when they have finished it. We recommend that children read for at least 10-15 minutes each night. Discussing your child’s reading with them is important and comprehension continues to be a focus in Year 3.  We also welcome children to bring in books from home if they wish.

Children will also access the library once a week, taking a book home and returning it the following week.



Please ensure that your child has a named kit in school at all times. For safety, hair should be tied and only stud earrings are allowed in school.


There will be no swimming in Year 3 as swimming will now take place in Year 4.


Home Learning

In Year 3, children will receive a home learning grid at the start of every half term. This will include a range of activities to complete over the half term. The activities are optional however we do encourage the children to complete as many as they can. Once they have competed an activity we would be delighted for them to bring the article into school so that your child can share their work with the class.  In addition to these home learning activities, your child will be expected to read every evening and will continue to bring home the ‘Good Times Challenge’ and spellings to practise each week.

The morning bell goes at 8.45am when the children can come into the classroom. If children arrive after 9am they will need to enter school via the school office as the gates will be locked.

Children will be dismissed from the classroom at 3.10pm.


Learn On Demand

Our Year 3 ‘Learn On Demand’ videos will also be added to throughout the year. Please keep checking in with the website to see what is new. We will promote any new videos in class and through the weekly school newsletter.


School Diaries

We will continue with school diaries this year and encourage the children to of write down their favourite part of the day. We ask that children return this diary to school each day so that they have it in class to complete.


Class Representatives

If you would like to be a class rep, your class teacher will be very pleased to hear from you. There will be a sign up sheet at our ‘Meet the Teacher’ meeting.  Usually class reps will be asked to attend two meetings a year, volunteer to help run events such as the Summer Fair and be a point of contact for the teacher.



In KS2, children are invited to bring in a fruit or vegetable snack for their morning break at 11am. Just a reminder that Nelson is a healthy and nut free school.



Please ensure that the medical team have any relevant medication and that this medication is up-to-date.


We hope your child will find their time in Year 3 both exciting and rewarding. If you have any issues or concerns about your child do not hesitate to contact us.
