Year 3

We have been reading Stig of the Dump. We made a whole class den in our classroom to act out the story and use our imaginations. We had so much fun. It inspired our diary writing- we wrote an entry as if we were Barney.

Sawing, nailing, sanding and decorating a wooden cross to help us reflect on the Easter Story.

Year 3 World Book Day!

Year 3 World Book Day!

In Gymnastics we were creating group balances. Here are some of our results!

Year 3 Anti-Bullying Week

We designed and made badges to wear. They help us remember the importance of, 'One Kind Word.' 

We also made some fun posters for our classroom and enjoyed some role-play. 

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.

Dear Parents,


Year 3 children have had a brilliant start to the academic year, striving to become more independent in their learning and in their approach to school life. Thank you for helping your child to achieve this very important KS2 skill.


It was lovely to talk to so many of you at the recent parent consultations. Working together with you helps us to enable your child to reach their full potential. Please do not hesitate to get in contact if you ever have any questions; your support is extremely valuable.


We are very excited as this is CHRISTMAS TERM! We will be keeping you updated with our festive celebrations.


A few things I would like to highlight;

  • Please send children into school with a coat, even if the day looks sunny first thing, as the weather can quickly change.
  • Children must have their full, named PE kit in school at all times with clothing suitable for outside weather as well as indoors. If your child has earrings, then please provide tape to cover your child’s earrings.


Thank you,

Miss A. King

Term 1

Welcome to Year 3!


We are so excited about 2021-2022 in Year 3! We have lots of exciting ideas... and cannot wait to hear about yours!


A few things to highlight;

  • Break time tuck 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.
  • Homework will usually be set on Monday and expected in on Friday. Details of homework will be recorded by children in their homework diary. 
  • 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. 
  • Homework diaries will also be used as contact books between home and school. 
  • If you have any additional questions/ concerns please come and speak to me or send me a message.


Warmest regards,

Miss A. King
