Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


We hope that you have all had an amazing summer break and are ready for an exciting new academic year in class 3. Some changes will be more obvious and some not so. 


Children will come into school through the year 3 cloakroom and hang up their coats and bags on their named peg. To begin with a member of staff will guide them round to class.

At the end of the school day the children will line up outside on the playground just like on transition days.


Our first theme of the new the school year will be 'Would you like to be a Viking?'

The children will look at what it was like to be a Viking and decide if they prefer modern day or Viking times. 


PE day is Friday with Mr Dennis. We may have an extra session on a Monday if time allows and we have finished all of our work.

Please ensure your child has the correct PE kit. I would advise sending it in on the Monday and taking it home on a Friday if it needs washing. 

It is a health and safety requirement that earrings need removing or covering with plasters please.


Along with Mrs Hancock in class 3, support is provided by Mrs Dwyer and Mrs Thompson. Any issues please feel free to speak to any one of us. I am always available at the end of the school day, alternatively, you could make an appointment to see me before school if you prefer.


Homework will go home every Friday. This will consist of spellings, literacy and numeracy which will be based on what the children have been learning in class.


If your child is absent for any reason their homework will be put into their tray and can be collected upon their return.



Children need to put all completed homework in the blue tray by Friday morning, thank you.


Year 3 staff.

Big apologies

PE has changed from Thursday to Friday as this is the day Mr Dennis can come to Samuel Barlow Primary Academy.
