You are finally in KS2! It is the start of great things, and you will grow so much. Our first English class text will be 'Into the Forest' by the author, Anthony Browne. You may have already read some of his other books such as 'The Tunnel' or 'Gorilla'. In Maths, we will be recapping place value and looking at counting, comparing, and ordering numbers. Being a Year 3 child is exciting as you get to have so much fun and learn so many things. We will even be visiting Chester Zoo to support our learning about the rainforest. We will also become Romans and travel back to the Stone Age.


We can't wait to meet you!


Year 3 Team


Attendance & Punctuality

It is vital that your child attends school and that they are on time every day. The doors will be open for 10 minutes for children to arrive. Please try and book any appointments outside of the school day where possible.

Water Bottles

Children may bring in a clean water bottle to drink from during the school day. Children are able to re-fill bottles at school. Please ensure they are clearly labelled with your child’s name.



Year 3 children are able to purchase toast and a drink to eat at break time. This needs to be booked and paid for in advance via the School Gateway app.

Toast – 50p per day (2 slices)

Drinks (water, orange juice, chocolate milkshake, strawberry milkshake) – 50p per day

Alternatively, children are able to bring a healthy snack from home, such as fruit.




Children are able to have a hot dinner from school for their lunch, this must be paid for and ordered on the School Gateway app in advance. The cut off for ordering is 8am on a daily basis. Dinners are £2.20 per day. Alternatively, children may bring in a healthy packed lunch from home if they prefer.


Please note: We are a nut free school as we have many children with serious allergies. Please do not send anything into school that contains nuts, this includes chocolate spread.


If your child is entitled to free school meals, you must still make a meal selection on the app. If you do not make a selection on the app, your child will receive a jacket potato. The cut off for ordering is 8am on a daily basis.
