Holy Family Catholic Primary School

Year 3 – St Bernadette


Dear Parents/Guardians,


Your child's class teacher is Miss Lloyd, supported by Mrs MacCallam throughout the week. 


PE will be taught every Wednesday.  However, full P.E. kits (white shorts, red t-shirts and plimsolls) need to be in school everyday.  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 they can cover them up.  Swimming takes place every Tuesday.

Parental involvement

Parents times-tables sessions run every Wednesday 8.55 to 9.10. 

Creative curriculum

Our topic is Yabba Dabba Do.


Spelling homework is set every week.  It is given on a Monday and must be returned on a Monday.  Each child has a Times Table Rockstars login to use to practice their times tables.  They also get guided reading homework every Monday, which needs to be returned on Wednesday.

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 Mrs Summers-Breeze.  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 make an appointment to see me if you have any issues you would like to discuss.
