Be Ready, Be Respectful, Be Safe

Lionel Primary School

Working together to provide an educational environment that inspires, challenges and nurtures each child.

Year 3



We hope you have all had a restful Spring break and are ready for your final term in Year 3!


This term, the children will continue to have a soft start. The doors will be open from 8:40  every morning until 8:55 am.  Each day children should bring with them a ruck-sack or bag, a water bottle (which can be re-filled from the water dispenser in school) and if possible, some fruit as a mid-morning snack, and their packed lunch if they are not opting to have a school dinner. Please ensure that your child wears correct school uniform, which can be found under policies on this website.


Physical Education

Children need to have their P.E. kit in school on a Monday morning and they can take it home on Friday for washing. The P.E. kit consists of: a pair of navy shorts, a white polo T-shirt, plimsolls and navy track-suit for cold weather. Trainers may be worn for outdoor games. Please ensure that all items belonging to your child fit them and are labelled with their name.

  • Fir Class P.E. – Thursday and Friday
  • Pine P.E - Monday and Thursday
  • Chestnut P.E. – Tuesday and Thursday       



Children should be reading their books every day at home. Reading records must be signed every night and brought to school the next day to be checked. The children can change their book in school when they are finished and are not expected to read whole chapter books in one day. Children who have not read for a minimum of three times a week at home will need to join a Friday reading club during lunchtime play. Whilst your child is reading, ask them questions about the text, such as asking them to tell you what they are reading about.


Homework is set on Friday and is to be returned on the following Tuesday. Each child has access to Google Classroom where weekly homework for English and Maths will be set. Homework is linked to work being studied in lessons and is explained to the class before going home. Children are expected to complete their homework to a high standard and submitting by the deadline on Tuesday. Homework that has not been submitted or is incomplete will be done during lunchtime. Additionally, weekly spelling words (set on Mondays) and times tables should be practised every day for a test on Friday.



Year 3 is an exciting year for your child. They will continue to grow their learning independence and build upon existing knowledge.


Please check the current half termly curriculum overview below.


We are looking forward to finishing the year as brilliantly as we started it! 


Thank you for your support with your child’s learning.
