What happens in Year 3?

Year 3 is an exciting time: it’s the first year in the Junior school and for some, it is a big step up from Year 2.

The Year 2 teachers from the infant school and the Year 3 teachers from the Junior school liaise in the Summer term to make the move as smooth as possible.

We spend a lot of time getting children settled and familiar with new routines, activities and new friends. All the children have a buddy in Year 6, who they meet at the end of Year 2. Their buddy helps them to settle in and support of they need any help.

Many fun and exciting things happen in Year 3:

  • The children go on a day trip to Butser Farm in the Autumn term and to Chertsey Museum in the Spring term.
  • Each class takes part in an archaeologist workshop in the Autumn term.
  • The children take part in a Roman themed day during the Spring term.
  • The children perform in a Christmas play at the Holy Trinity church in December.

Day to day guide:

Children need homework diaries, reading folders, a book and pencil cases in school every day.

Please encourage your child to read for 10 minutes a day and where possible read and discuss texts with an adult on a regular basis. Please sign the homework diary be signed each week to confirm that daily reading has been done. Children who have a reading scheme book are responsible for changing their own books and are expected to change scheme books at least once a week. A teacher will help those children who need help selecting books.

Children will need to remember their PE kits for their two PE days and their kits need to be named:

  • 3C – Tuesday and Thursday
  • 3G – Tuesday and Wednesday
  • 3CW – Wednesday and Thursday


In Year 3, we will set the children weekly English, Maths and Topic homework. If children are absent when homework/spellings are given out it is their responsibility to get the relevant work from their teacher.   We hope that you will support us by ensuring that the children do their homework and make sure that it is handed in on time.

This will be handed out on a Monday and should be returned by Wednesday. Spelling lists will also be given. These will be glued into homework diaries where there is space for learning them. We expect children to practise their spellings at home regularly. If your child does not understand the meaning of a word, please encourage them to look it up in a dictionary and to practise using the word in a sentence.


This will be handed out on a Wednesday, and should be returned by Friday. Children will also be given a mental maths skill to practise (i.e. 4 times table) and this will be tested during the week. We would greatly appreciate your help in assisting your children with these skills – there are many ways to make learning these fun, for example: songs, computer games, and flashcards.


In order to promote more responsibility for their own learning, the children will be given an exciting Stone Age project to complete over the course term. All details and instructions will be included when they receive their project folders and it will be explained clearly to them at school. We will also be discussing this at the curriculum evening should you have any questions.

Two homework books are provided. There is a homework club on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday in the Computing suite if children wish to complete their homework at lunchtime.
