Welcome back to the new school year; we hope the children are well and are looking forward to Year 3 at Elston Hall. 


The Autumn term is always a busy time for children in Year 3 with lots of learning taking place. This year we are continuing with our exciting, thematic approach to teaching. This allows children to make connections between areas of learning and consolidate skills. All the themes chosen deliver the programmes of study for the National Curriculum and this term our topics will be ‘That’s All Folks, ‘Lindow Man’ and ‘Rocky the Findosaur’. PSHEe, R.E, French and Science will be taught discreetly.


For more details about our learning this term, please see the Curriculum Overview.


Children in Year 3 receive regular homework. Please practise reading with your child regularly and complete two journal activities weekly. Weekly spellings will be given out on a Friday and tested on the following Friday. Children will continue to bring home a purple creative homework book with outlined activities.


Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days. Children will be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions. In colder weather, your child may choose to wear a tracksuit and trainers for outside games, which is acceptable. Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times. PE kits can be purchased from the school office and can be kept in school all week on your child’s peg.


Year 3 PE sessions are:

Class 10: Monday and Tuesday

Class 11:  Monday and Tuesday

Class 12: Monday and Thursday


Water bottles are also available at a cost of 20p each.  We will continue with morning toast up until close of register and should you wish, children can bring a piece of fruit to school for their morning snack. Please note that no free fruit is provided now your child is in Key Stage 2.

Just a reminder that children in Key Stage 2 do not receive universal free school meals. If you are eligible for means-tested free school meals, this will continue but any other children wishing to have a school meal will need to pay £2.40 a day via sims pay. If you think you are eligible for free school meals, please ensure the school office have your national insurance number and date of birth and we can check for you.


Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher, who will usually be available at the end of each day.  We anticipate a busy and exciting term and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
