Melling Primary School

Year 3

Please can you check that your child hasn't accidentally picked up anyone else's cardigan or jumper and return them to school if they have. 

Please label all uniform so that we can ensure they are returned to the children at the end of the day.

Many thanks for your support with this.   

Y3 class email:

Hello from me, Miss Hopewell! I am so excited to be here in Year 3 and I have had a lovely first two days. The children have made me feel so welcome, thank you!


An important note about spelling homework... I am now sending home paper copies of spelling homework on Fridays. Please note, it is not compulsory for these sheets to be completed and they do not need to be returned to school. I am only sending them home in case you would like to practise the spellings in this way. Spellings will also continue to be put on Readiwriter, so please continue to practise on there as well.


IMPORTANT - Please send the empty folders back in on Fridays so that I can put the new week's spellings in them. Children will continue to be tested on their spellings every Friday so please try and do lots of practise.


Thank you so much for your support. Have a great weekend!



Our first full week completed, I bet they will all sleep tonight.


It has been lovely teaching the children, all be it it was brief this time round but I know I will see them around school from time to time.


Homework: This has now gone live electronically, so please ensure your child is completing this daily. Mathletics and Readiwriter use the same log in, if you do have any issues accessing it please email the class email I'm sure Mrs Maddock or Miss Hopewell will be more than happy to help.

TT Rockstars should be something the children access daily as this will boost their times tables knowledge as the quick recall facts are crucial to their learning.

From time to time Purple Mash may get used too so please let your child still access this as there are lots of activities they can complete on this at home and it will benefit them for when they do their computing lessons in class.


Newsletter: This will be going live today so keep an eye out for that. It will tell you what to expect in the up and coming term.


Have a lovely weekend everyone smiley

Just like that the first week back to school is over. Those 2 days have gone by so quickly! The children have settled in really well and no doubt they will be right back into their normal routine by next week.

They all looked so smart when they came in, we hope you enjoy the photos of them all.


Just a little update about PE as I know some of the children and parents have been asking. Mrs Maddock has said for now that PE will only take place on a Monday with Mr Millington and she will schedule it in next term. (Please make sure that the children's PE kits are as required in the school uniform policy (no named clothing items i.e. Nike); navy shorts or joggers, pale blue PE t-shirt, school jumper and pumps or trainers.)

With the schools returning to some form of normality we are able to teach and use the equipment we have not really been able to use since before last year. So the children's afternoons will be very busy with a huge range of topic work and activities. All of this will be explained in more detail in the Year 3 Newsletter next week - so keep your eyes peeled for it.



All the children's reading books have been sent home now, the way we are doing it has changed. You will notice a label on your child's reading record, this is for the day they bring it in to be updated and changed if needed. 

One read per day will be counted so if your child reads more than once it will not be counted. We ask for a minimum of 3 reads each week and this will be checked by Miss Riley on their day to return them.

If your child does finish their book they can read a book from home and document it in their records.


Please bare with us while we are still settling in to our new routines as well as the children. There have been lots of lovely updates and we are making sure we have everything in place and ready to go, so we apologise if you email and we do not get back to you immediately. 

Mrs Maddock will be in the driving seat Monday-Wednesday, I will be in Thursday and Friday and we have the wonderful Miss Riley with us every morning.


We hope you all have a lovely weekend and we will see you next week cheeky



Team Y3

Hi everyone, we cannot wait to welcome you all back on Thursday. We are going to have a lovely time settling back in and all getting to know how being in the juniors operates. It is a little different from the infants but we know you will take it in your strides and settle in so quickly!


This page will be updated on Friday with everything you will need to know and what to expect in the Autumn term.


Rest up! Lots in store for tomorrow and Friday.

Cannot wait to hear what you have all been up too!
