Dear Parents / Annwyl Rhieni,
Welcome to Year 3!!
We hope you have all had an enjoyable summer holiday and that you are ready for the busy year that lies ahead. Please find below some useful information that you will need:
P.E days for our class are on a Tuesday (Outdoor) and a Friday (Indoor). Please ensure that appropriate P.E. kit is worn/brought to school on these days (navy jogging bottoms, white t-shirt and trainers).
Maths homework will be allocated to the children’s Active Learn account on a Friday. Mental maths books will be sent home weekly. Children will need to complete one test per week. Please ensure mental maths books are brought back into school on a Friday. Spelling lists will be distributed on a Tuesday and the children will be tested the following Tuesday.
From September, there will be a new online payment system. All payments to school, e.g. for dinner money, trips, breakfast and after school clubs etc will need to be made via the sQuid system. If you haven’t already created your child’s online account, please do so using your child’s unique registration number and security code that was sent home. Please note, from September, the cost of school dinners will be £2.25 per day.
Please ensure that your child has a healthy snack and drink for morning snack time. Alternatively, we also provide a variety of fruit for the children to purchase at play time. This can be paid for on a daily basis at 20p or a weekly basis at £1.00. Children will be responsible for purchasing their own fruit from the Fruit Tuck Shop.
We encourage children to bring water into class. Please ensure that water bottles are labelled with their name and is taken home on a daily basis to be cleaned.
The School Day
Children will be expected to line up in the junior yard before 8.50 a.m. and be collected from the infant yard at 3.20 p.m.
Your child will need to bring their book bag/reading books to school each day. We encourage independent reading every day, however we do aim to listen to each child read twice a week.
Remember, we will be using class Dojo to keep you in the loop this year! We’ll share photos from class, important updates and wonderful moments. If you haven’t already done so, please sign up to class Dojo using the parent code you were given during the transition meeting.
During the autumn term, the topic we will be studying will be Ancient Egypt. Our aim is that pupil voice, which is at the core of our curriculum, will completely motivate and excite pupils to become independent learners.
We are very excited about our topic and I’m sure your children will share in our enthusiasm.
Spring Term: Light & Sound
Summer Term: The Rainforest
Finally, we look forward to a happy, fun and productive year with you and your children. Should you have any queries or concerns, please do not hesitate to come and see either of us after school.
Thank you for your continued support,
Mrs. Bennett & Miss. Frost
- Sports Relief a Real Hit
Sports relief this morning was a hit. Ozzie Osprey also got stuck in with the sports this morning. The teachers highlight of the day however was winning 4-1 to the pupils… not that we were extremely competative at all!
- Year 3 Techniquest Trip
What an amazing time we all had at Techniquest today. As soon as we arrived, the children were eager to explore all of the interactive exhibits – and they weren’t disappointed. They began by watching a lively presentation about light in the science theatre, which they thoroughly enjoyed – they learnt so much! They were […]
- Year 3 Northern Lights Artists!
We looked at some amazing photographs this afternoon of the Northern Lights – looking at the colours and patterns that they produce in the sky.

- Year 3 Candle Creations
On Monday, the year 3’s were lucky enough to take part in a candle making workshop as part of our topic, light and sound. One of our lovely mums, Mrs. Isaac, offered to come in and help the children create their very own scented candles. Mrs. Isaac talked the children through the making process and provided […]
- Year 3 Shadow Investigation
The children have been busy the past two days investigating shadows. The question we were investigating was what happens to the size of a shadow as you move the light source away from an object? We had a mixture of predictions with some children thinking the shadow would get bigger and some predicting that the […]

- Year 3 Poetry Workshop
This morning, Year 3 had a special visit from Mr. Bowen. They took part in a poetry workshop where they shared lots of lovely ideas and generated some excellent vocabulary to create a poem linked to our topic, light and sound. What do you think of our poem? … Light and Sound, light and sound, […]

- Welsh Dancing in Year 3
It was tricky to take photographs of the children in Year 3 dancing this afternoon but what a giggle we had! Every child joined in and every child had a huge smile on their face as they tried welsh folk dancing. Excellent team work today and great listening skills! Ardderchog!
- Year 3 Art Afternoon
We have had a very creative afternoon today. As part of our welsh week we have been studying the myth The Giant of Snowdon. The children activated their prior knowledge by sharing lots of interesting Snowdon facts as well as learning many more. They then looked at images of Snowdon and tried to re-create a […]
- Year 3 Spectacular Spectroscopes!
We have had an interesting afternoon today learning more about Sir Isaac Newton’s Theory of Colour. The children are now experts with the light spectrum and understand that when light passes through a prism the light refracts to show a rainbow of colour. We then made our very own spectroscopes where the light refracted off […]

- Year 3 Stories
The children in Year 3 put their handmade musical instruments to work today and created a sound story. The first job they had to do was figure out how they could fit the sound of their instrument into a story – did it sound like rain? or thunder? or a heartbeat? They worked extremely hard […]
- Year 3 Music Makers!
Year 3 have been very busy this afternoon continuing with their Design and Technology project. What a musical treat for a Friday afternoon! The children have been so creative and not only thought about the sound that their instrument was going to make but they also thought about how it was going to be decorated. […]
- Year 3 Get Epic!
Year 3 have signed up to ‘Get Epic’ (www.getepic.com) which is a fantastic tool with thousands of books for the children to access. They have had fun exploring the site this morning and we will be using this for research in our future lessons.

Year 3 had an exciting (messy!) afternoon today exploring colour. We discussed what colour ‘light’ was and had lots of interesting responses including yellow, peach and see through!
