Year 3 - Learning at Home

                                     smiley Thank-you! smiley

Parents & Carers:

A huge thank-you for all of your support through this challenging year and also for your kind words, cards and gifts. We hope you have an enjoyable and relaxing summer.

Many thanks,

Mrs Affleck, Miss Brown, Mr Hammond & Ms Tomlinson 

The transitions days were a great success. It was lovely to see the children and for them to see their friends. Here are a few photos taken on the two days.

Transition Day


If your child is coming to one of the Year 3 Transition Days, please could they bring a carrier bag in their coat pocket.  They will have books and art work to bring home at the end of the day so this would be really helpful.

Thank you.

Get ready to get SILLY! This year, Trafford Libraries' Summer Reading Challenge is online and it’s all about funny books, happiness and having a laugh! You’ll also meet The Silly Squad, a team of animal friends who love to go on adventures and get stuck in to all different kinds of funny books.

For your next Zoom call we would like you think of an act of kindness from Lockdown to tell us about.

Whatever you get up to, please remember to send us some photos so we can share in your enjoyment!

Happy Half Term,

I am sure you are all aware if we were in school we would be finishing today for a two week break, because of this we will not be posting any work next week for you to complete. If you do wish to carry on with some learning there are numerous links we have posted for you to explore and find something to learn about. Otherwise, please just do some reading, stay active and most importantly, relax and have some fun!


In week 2 of half term we will be posting an activity grid which is full of fun ideas for you to try - if you wish!


Thanks so much for sending in your photos, we are really enjoying seeing your faces, which we very much miss. Please keep sending them in and remember if you haven't had a phone call yet, you will receive one in the next two weeks. 

Stay Safe,

Wednesday 20/5/20   


Just a quick message to let you all know that your class teacher will be making phone calls to  catch up with you and your child over the next couple of weeks, so if you receive a call from an ‘unknown number’ it is probably one of us.  Please do not attempt to return the call - we will try to call again at a different time.


Please feel free to drop us a message on the year group email, if you have a preferred number you would like us to call you on. 

We look forward to speaking to you all.


Miss Brown, Mr Hammond and Ms Tomlinson.

Year 3 - Learning at Home

Dear Parents,


Welcome to our ‘Home Learning’ page.


This page has been set up to help our children to access learning from home after the announcement of school closures by the Prime Minister, on Wednesday 18th March 2020. 

We feel it is important that our children continue to learn and thrive during these difficult and uncertain times.


Please check these pages on a weekly basis for information regarding home learning. As mental and physical well-being is also of the upmost importance, regular breaks and down time are also recommended.


We would just like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all our parents for their continued support and wish everyone a safe and quick return to normality (whenever that maybe).



Kindest regards,


Miss Brown, Mr Hammond, Ms Tomlinson, Mrs Affleck and the Year 3 Team.
