Year 3 - Kinney Class

Year 3 – Kinney Class Information


Welcome to Year Three. Year Three is an exciting year as the children develop their independence further and learn a range of new skills to help them along the way to becoming a successful independent learner. We relish the opportunity to witness the children develop and progress so much. We have already seen the children’s attitude to learning improve and look forward to the year working with them and you to build on their understanding of the world around them and develop it further!

Autumn 1 Curriculum Overview

Routines & Notices


P.E. is on Tuesday and Thursday. Pupils will need their P.E. kit.  

Reading & Times Tables

In Year 3, your child will be using an online system called Accelerated Reader. This scheme will be used to ensure that your child is selecting an appropriate book within their 'Zone of Proximal Development (ZPD). A comprehension test is attached to each book. You will be able to log in and view the books that your child has read and what their scores are. Later this term, we plan to run a parent workshop explaining how the scheme works. Please note that we will not be using records this year.

Times tables knowledge is invaluable and feeds in to many areas of the maths curriculum. At the end of Year 4, your child will complete a national multiplication test. We will continue preparing your child for this. 


Homework will be set on a Wednesday and should be returned to school by the following Monday. There is the expectation that your child reads at home daily and practices their times tables regularly. There will also be a weekly spelling test with key words for you child sent home on the Wednesday.

Registration & Dismissal

It is expected that all children arrive between 8:40am – 8:50am and that they line up in register order with their class when the bell goes at 8:50am. Please send your child up to the top playground where they will line up with their teacher. If you need to pass on a message, please communicate with the teacher at the bottom of the stairs.

Your child’s class will be dismissed at 3:20 from the double doors in the hall. Please allow plenty of space around the door and teacher when collecting your child. If your child is being collected by another family member or friend please inform the office.


If you have a question or concern about your child please do not hesitate to speak to your child’s teacher.
