Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to the Year 3 section of the St Ignatius’ website. In this section of the website we aim to include details that may be useful to parents of Year 3 children, such as homework, help videos, spellings and details of Year 3 routines. We will also showcase a selection of the fantastic work that our talented children have produced.

We believe that the best outcomes for your child are achieved by taking a collaborative approach to their learning; therefore if you need to contact us then please do so before or after school.  We look forward to working with you to ensure that your child’s learning journey is a positive one.

Other Information

We have P.E. on Monday afternoons. Please ensure that your child has a white t-shirt, black shorts and suitable footwear (pumps or trainers) in school ready for these lessons.

Your child will have 3 pieces of homework per week: reading, maths and spellings/phonics. These are given out on Fridays and are due on the following Friday.

In order for your child to make the best possible progress, please ensure that your child reads daily.

Please visit the school blog to keep up to date on what we have been doing.

Thank you for all your support,

Miss Park

Online Safety

If our Year 3 ‘bubble’ is closed at any point, children may go online more frequently.  Parents, please familiarise yourself and your children with some basic online safety rules which will help everyone enjoy their time online:


Isolation and Home Learning

Should we be required to isolate due to COVID-19 this year, we will put work onto the Showbie website.  Parents and carers will be sent more information about this at the time of any isolation.
