Anstey Junior SchoolAim High No Limits


Year 3

Welcome to the Summer term!


Your teachers are Miss MacDonald, Mrs Jennings and Mrs Weller.

Your LSAs are Mrs Franklin, Mr Hayden and Ms Head.


PE is on Tuesdays (CM Sports) and Fridays (Teacher). 

Children should wear kit on these days, including a t-shirt in their house colour, and uniform for the rest of the week.

Full details of both can be found on the website.




Weekly spelling homework is set on the website on a Wednesday and is due in on the following Monday.

Some weeks we set two different sets, in which case children in the phonics groups should work on the phonics homework;

those in the fluency/comprehension groups should work on the spellings page.


We have now also added the list of statutory words from Year 2.

Because these do not follow conventional spelling patterns and cannot be sounded out, children need to

learn how to spell them. We have been revising them at school, and will continue to do so for the next few weeks. 

Please support your child by practising at home too, ideally spending roughly 10 minutes on 5 or 6 words at a time.


We expect children to read 5 times each week. 

Reading needs to be signed off by a parent or carer, using the diary which all children have now been given.

Children should bring their diaries in every Monday to be checked.

Each recorded read earns a raffle ticket to be entered into the weekly Reading Raffle,

the winner of which gets to choose a brand new book to keep.


To support children in learning times tables at home, we have given out personalised login details for Times Tables Rock Stars.

Tables should be practised at home at least 5 times every week.


There will also be a homework project running each half term.

This term, to tie in with the coronation of King Charles and all the activities we are doing at school, the theme is British values.

As before, you should spend 1-2 hours on your project. How you do it is up to you - be as creative as you like!

We have loved your creativity and ideas so far and always look forward to you sharing your projects in the last week of this half term,

so remember to bring them in on Monday 22nd May.


If you need to get in touch with us, please catch us at the end of the day or contact us via the school office.
