Bienvenue a Year 3!

The Choices We Make!

Michaelmas & Advent Terms



Welcome to Year 3! We have lots of exciting ideas... and cannot wait to hear about yours!


A few things to highlight;

  • Break time snack is not provided by the government in KS2. Children can bring in a healthy snack to enjoy at break time, such as some fruit/cut up vegetables/raisins.
  • There are no universal school lunches in KS2. Unless your child is entitled to a Free School Meal, children wishing to have school lunches must pay for each lunch. (for more info please speak to the office.)
  • Please can children have their full, clearly named, PE kit in school at all times, including a pair of school tracksuit bottoms for the colder weather. (PE is on a Tuesday afternoon)
  • Homework will usually be set on Thursday for the following Wednesday. 
  • Children are always encouraged to read daily at home, preferably reading aloud to an adult who can discuss the text with them. Children who read at home regularly have been shown to make much more rapid progress. Reading is to be recorded in their homework diary please.
  • If you have any additional questions/ concerns please come and speak to me or send me a message.


God Bless,

Times Table Rockstars


As a school, we are signed up to the wonderful online resource that is Times Table Rockstars.


It is a times tables game where the children can play a variety of challenges in order to improve their understanding of times tables. I can even set challenges!


This is a great resource to help with learning of times tables that are set for home learning each week.


The children have all been given their individual login details (recorded in their homework books) and were shown how to use the resource. They are already becoming quite competitive! A little bit as often as possible will make a huge difference! 


Just a reminder, details as follows:




Go to Login - School Pupils.


When School name box appears, type: CT1 1NE (St Thomas' Catholic Primary School Canterbury should appear).


Then enter unique individual username and password.


Enjoy and practice those times tables.
