Croeso i Flwyddyn Tri!

Welcome to Year 3!

Class Teacher: Miss Z Morgan

LSA: Miss K Stephens

Hello and welcome to a brand new school term at St David’s! I hope you have all had a memorable and rested Christmas holidays and are ready to come back to school this January with a bang! I am so very excited to continue working with the children in Year 3; learning new topics, challenging and supporting them and making fantastic new memories. Everything you need to know to about this term is on the class page with some support that can be provided from home. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions. Please email year3@stdavidsprm.cardiff.sch.uk or ring the school office. 

There are so many exciting things planned for this year and I can’t wait to start a new adventure with the children in Year 3.

Planning for Year 3


Every week, I will attach the new planning for Year 3. If your child misses any school or cannot come in for any reason, you can keep up to date with what we are doing in class.

Google Classroom


Every week children will receive a piece of homework through Google Classroom.

Below is a YouTube video to assist you on how to use this, a PDF step by step guide and the Google Classroom code for Year 3 to access their work.

There will be regular updates on the children’s work on this page and our school Twitter page.




Weekly homework will be sent out each Friday in your child’s Homework Book and will be due back in the following Wednesday. Each week, children must complete either a piece of numeracy or literacy based homework which will be set for them. This will alternate week to week from literacy to numeracy. Weekly spellings will also be taught in class and given to the children to practice at home. All of this is laid out in the HOMEWORK PLANNER available on this page.


There will also be a termly HOMEWORK GRID sent out based on our topic of The Water Cycle. Children may do as many of these homework tasks as they like over the term. All of this is laid out in the HOMEWORK GRID available on this page.


Children are allowed to complete their homework in any format they would like as long as Miss Morgan can access it and see all the lovely work produced from home. For example, children may use Hwb, their Homework Book, PowerPoint, Word, Excel, posters, etc.



Reading is such a vital component of your child’s learning and will be used every day in class. We will take every opportunity to listen to your child’s reading, whether that be in Guided Group Reading, in different Areas of Learning or simply throughout the school day. Please try and support and encourage reading to take place at home as it is the perfect opportunity for your child’s skills to continue being developed. Children can read on their own, but please encourage them to read out loud and complete their reading record each time they read. Therefore, we kindly ask that your child’s reading book and diary are returned to school every day, so they are available to us if we need them and we can keep up to date with the fantastic reading and progress taking place at home. 

Weekly Routines

PE: P.E is on a Friday. Your child needs black shorts, house colour or white t-shirt and trainers. They may also wear black jogging bottoms and a school hoodie for outdoor activities. Please label all clothes clearly with their name. 

Snack: A healthy fruit snack is available for each child for £1.50 per week or £10.50 per term. Please pay via ParentPay before 8am on Monday mornings. All snacks must be paid for in advance. Alternatively, your child is very welcome to bring their own snack providing it is either fresh fruit or vegetables as we are a healthy eating school!

Children can bring in a water bottle to keep in class and drink throughout the day. We are more than happy to refill their bottles. Please ensure only plain water is in the bottle and they are labelled with your child's name.

Dinner Money: As a cashless school, dinner money is to be paid in advance via ParentPay.

Christian Values

Our school Christian Value this term is Peace

Having Peace means that we trust God during difficult times. We are all going to have problems and bad days from time to time, but what matters is what we do when those problems come. We can panic and freak out or we can trust in God. God is the only one that we can trust in because He is powerful and He loves us.

Here are some ways to be peaceful. Do you do any of these things already?

  1. Make room for peace at home. 
  2. Find peace in nature. 
  3. Make time for creative play.  
  4. Engage your friends hands and hearts. 
  5. Establish a “family foundation.”Create a homemade bank for donations—a miniature family foundation."
  6. Face local needs. 
  7. Make a difference in the world.
