Year 3 Timetable

Key information for Parents


Reading books are to be taken home every night and brought back into school every day.  Please complete you Accelerated Reader quizzes online at home if you can by following this link:

Your username and password are the same as your Mathletics.  If you can't access this at home, please let me know.

We will try to change books as regularly as possible in school, but please be patient as we are not allowing children access to the library at the moment. If you forget your book or are reading other books alongside your school reading book, you can search for it in accelerated reader to find if there is a comprehension test for it.

Further to this, I have added a new Online Reading tab where you can access reading materials from home. Many of these books can be found on the accelerated reader tests to assess your understanding of the content.


In year 3, our homework is given out each Friday and is due in by Thursday. We give out a list of ten spellings each week which you will be tested on the following Thursday. Along with the spelling homework, you will recieve up to 3 activities to complete on Mathletics by the following Friday morning. Prizes are given using raffle tickets for children who complete their homework and those who achieve well on their spellings.


Just a reminder that the children will need to bring in their PE kits on Mondays and Wednesdays. These kits will be returned home after they have been used to be washed after each use.
