Year 3 - La Paz and Rio de Janeiro classes


Hello year 3 children and families.


We are so excited to start a new school year together and will use this page to keep you up to date with everything happening at school. You will also find our newsletter with important dates for each term. Please check back regularly. In preparation for Year 3, here are a few pieces of important information for you.



Reading and Spellings

Children are expected to read at home 4 times per week. Please read with your child and sign their reading records. Reading records will be checked every Friday and library books can be changed every Tuesday.

Differentiated spelling will be sent home on a Wednesday and testing it on a Wednesday.


Year 3 have their PE on a Monday and Friday. Children should come into school wearing their PE kit to ensure they can get maximum time within their PE lessons.

For PE, children should wear shorts, leggings or jogging bottoms that are plain and dark in colour - dark blue, black or grey. They should not have large logos on. Every child is given one coloured PE t-shirt when they start the school; subsequent PE t-shirts need to be purchased. The colour of the t-shirt represents the colour of the House every child is placed in: Cheng Ho (green), Estervanico (yellow), Sir Francis Drake (blue) and Louise Boyd (red). 

Trainers are needed as footwear for PE and must also be a dark colour.
