Holy Family Catholic Primary School

Year 3 – St Bernadette


Dear Parents/Guardians,


Your child's class teacher is Mrs Ives, supported by Mrs Miskella throughout the week. 


PE will be taught every Tuesday and Wednesday.  Please wear a full P.E kit in on that day.  If your child wears earrings they must be able to remove them for P.E.  If they cannot remove their earrings, please provide them with medical tape so that they can cover them up. 

Parental involvement

There is currently no parents times-tables due to COVID-19.

Creative curriculum

Our current topic is Groovy Greeks looking at Ancient Greece.


Spelling homework is set every week.  It is given on a Monday and must be returned on a Monday, this can be done either by returning the paper copy to school or you can upload a copy to Class Dojo.  Each child has a Times Table Rockstars login to use to practice their times tables. 

Reading Books

All pupils will be given two school books to read.  We would like children to read at least five times each week.  Children have been given a reading journal so their reading can be recorded.  It is vital that a record is made after each time they read.  Once your child reaches 100 nights, they will be rewarded with a book of their choice by Mr Harding.  Your child's reading record will be checked and reading books will be changed on a weekly basis.  You can support children by listening to them read and questioning them on what they have read and especially any new vocabulary they encounter.  I have provided each child with a bookmark, which includes examples of suitable questions to ask your child whilst reading.  Books must be in school every day. 

Please don’t hesitate to message me on Class Dojo with any questions you may have. 

Warm regards,

Mrs Ives and the Year 3 Team
