Welcome to Year 3


Happy Half Term!! 

We have enjoyed a very busy week of Welsh and Art activities at school. 
We were very lucky this week to have had a visit from a special local talent. Glenys Cour, the Welsh artist, came to Lakeside this week and we were inspired by her landscape pictures. Check out the gallery to see some of our brilliant artwork. 
We hope that you all have a very relaxing half term break. 

We are looking forward to a busy second half of the Spring term. With the first week back bringing both the Eisteddfod AND World Book Day. 


Year 3 Eisteddfod entries include make, bake and photograph activities. 
1) Make a Daffoldil 
2) Bake biscuits 
3) Take a photograph of something that you think represents this years theme - THE FUTURE

The children also have to learn the words to the Welsh poem, which has been sent home.
They will be reciting this in their groups, and four groups will be selected to compete at the Eisteddfod on St Davids Day.


For World Book Day the children have been asked to write a riddle
based on their favourite book/story. 

Please remember to complete your Maths homework set on Actve Learn, as well as learning spelling words and reading every day. 
Have fun with your Eisteddfod activities and enjoy the quality time with your families. 


Best of luck to both Wales and Scotland in the 6 Nations championship! 


The class teachers are
Mr Vanstone (3V) Mrs Evans and Mrs Nessbert (3E) 
Our teaching assistant is Mrs Hoskins

Language Homework
Please help your child by encouraging them to read for pleasure as often as possible. (Ideally every day) This could be books, comics or kindle books  - or anything at all that will get them excited about reading. They will bring home a reading book every week and will have classroom reading activities every day. 

Spelling homework will be sent home once a week. Spelling homework should be looked at at least 4 times over the week to help your child to memorise the words and their correct spelling.  

Maths Homework
Maths homework activities will be set on Active Learn and will consolidate what we have been learning in class. 

Please use the link below to access Active Learn. 

The username is the first four letters of your child's first name and the first four letters of their surname. (If there are only three letters, then just enter three letters) The password is lakeside and the school code is qlq7.



Year 3 pupils must wear a change of clothing for PE and games activities. A navy T-shirt and navy blue shorts are required and trainers or similar footwear.
