Mr Cunningham

Mrs Flanagan


Welcome to the Year 3 class page!

Dear our fabulous Year 3’s,

We have made it to the summer holidays although it is not how we expected! We hope you enjoy this last week and still find ways to celebrate the end of the school year. We want to take this opportunity to wish you a happy and healthy summer with your family.

If you can, please keep reading daily and practising your times tables so that all your hard work over this year does not go to waste - as we know how easy it is to forget these skills!!

Daily Home Learning tasks

This week, the maths is from the White Rose Maths home learning page (a link is on the suggested tietabke). A reminder that this is a suggested timetable as it is important to find a balance between the learning and being at home as a family.

The Y3 Team



Tenten have released some daily prayers for families, these are a great way to start and end your day, thinking about others and reminding ourselves that even in hard times, we can still think of those less fortunate than ourselves and ask for God's help.

Additional Activities

Lots of companies and businesses are helping with school closure, offering lots of different activities. I will continue to post, what I hope are useful links to help your child's learning at home. 


Whilst at home we encourage you to read with your child daily, any book is great! If you would like some free eBooks please use the link below

here are some amazing free resource from Oxford Reading Tree that we think will supplement the reading books that we have already sent home.

You will need to register as a parent at once you have done this you will have access to a range of e-books with accompanying activities.

Simply click on book bands in the drop down levels menu and select the colour that matches your child's reading level.

STEM challenges

I have uploaded a document with some STEM challenges which can be mostly done with children in the house with things you already have. Obviously, some are not practical at this time like the egg challenge but most you should be able to do. Hope it keeps little hands busy! The document is available at the bottom of the page.

An online coding space coding some of children's favourite characters.

Some other useful websites during school closure:          Geography games and quizzes

JK rowling has launched a website with free access to the harry potter books on audible and lots of activities such as word searches, fact files and video clips.

This page will be updated throughout the year with key information as well as a celebration of the learning and achievements of your child's journey in Year 3.


At the start of the year we hold a 'Meet the Teacher' meeting.

The meeting is a great opportunity for you to find out what the expectations will be for this year and provide you with an overview of what will be covered in Year 3.

In the files section at the bottom of the page, you will find useful documents to help you understand what your child will be learning throughout their time in Year 3.

At the bottom of the webpage is a list on links that you may find useful. These links include copy of the presentation delivered during the 'Meet the Teacher' meeting and  a copy of 'Share in our learning letter for Spring 1'

If there is any further information that you might find useful please let myself of Mrs Flanagan know.

For home learning, children will continue to take home a Mental Arithmetic maths book and a Reading Comprehension book. This will be sent home on Thursday and one page should be completed and returned to school by Tuesday morning.

Spellings will continue to be sent home every Thursday to practice for a test on Tuesday.

Please note that the timestables will be set and monitored through Times Table Rockstars.
