Year 3: Dahl Class

Welcome to Year 3!


Staff: Mr McDade, Mrs Walker and Miss A. McDougall


Hello Year 3 and welcome back to school! We are absolutely delighted to report that all of year 3 have returned to school with amazing attitudes and a great desire to learn new things in the coming academic year.


Parents' Evening

Year 3 Autumn Parents' Evening will take place on Tuesday 13th and Thursday 15th of November. All parents should attend their chosen appointment. It is vital you are aware of how your child is developing and progressing in her/his learning. It would be great if your child could also attend so they can show you their work and take part in the discussion about their progress. If you are unable to attend on either evening, please contact me through the school office or at the classroom door, in order to arrange an alternative time. Thank you for your continued support, I look forward to seeing you.


Crosby Hall

Year 3's residential trip to Crosby Hall will take place on Wednesday 24th of April until Friday 26th of April 2019. Crosby Hall is an amazing centre with lots of activities, such as orienteering, rafting and zip-lining. Please bring the reply slip and deposit back by Monday 5th of November 2018. We really hope all the children can make it! Crosby Hall website link below.



Reading is a a major focus for Year 3 this year, both inside school and outside of it. Home reading is expected to be done by all children every night, and we ask that their reading diaries are signed and returned to school the following day so that we can confirm that the children are reading outside of the classroom.



Homework is due in every Wednesday unless otherwise stated. It is critically important that you help your children to complete their homework as independently as possible. Also it would really benefit Year 3 pupils if you would Test their specific times tables and spellings daily.



Fruit is on sale every morning on the KS2 yard at 20p per fruit.

School dinners are priced at £2.00 per day, or £10.00 for a full week.



Our P.E days are Wednesday with Miss Lee and Thursday with Gymnastics coach Kevin Shard. All children are expected to have a correct P.E kit in school on these days. Their P.E kits must consist of a plain white t-shirt, navy shorts and black pumps.



As Year 3 are now in KS2 it is important to remember that they wear a school tie everyday.


I am always available to speak to parents/carers briefly in the morning. However, if a longer discussion is needed, a meeting can be arranged at a mutually convenient time. 


Remember to keep checking this page for updates and photographs of all the exciting activities and learning that will be occurring in Year 3 this year!
