Year 3


There are two classes in Year 3 and the class teacher are Mrs Claire Corner and Miss Lara Fisher


The School Day

The school day runs from Monday to Friday. Registration is at 8.25am but you are able to drop your child off from 8.20am.

The end of the day is normally 5pm on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday unless your child is staying for tea. Children should be collected by the back gate and signed out when you leave. Your child has a numbered peg along West corridor for their coat and a "tub" in the class room for their school bag. On Wednesdays, school finishes at 3.30pm if your child is not involved in matches.

Please Note: We require permission before allowing anyone other than parents to collect children from the school at any time. Therefore, parents must inform staff if their child is being collected by someone other than themselves. This can be a letter or a call to the school office.

Before School - In order to help working parents, children can be booked in for breakfast. Please take them to the Dining Room and hand over to a member of staff for 7.45am. There is a charge for this facility and bookings must be made in advance.

In Year 3, pupils are encouraged to be as independent as they can. They must be organised; turning up to their lessons promptly and with the correct equipment. Pupils are in charge of collecting their sports kit prior to PE and Games sessions, as well as ensuring kit is handed in to the wash on the correct days.


The School Timetable

In addition to the emphasis upon Numeracy and Literacy, children in our department are offered a full and varied curriculum. Although expectations are high, an atmosphere of fun and enhanced staff ratios ensure personal input and success. Our curriculum is structured to meet individual learning styles. Class taught subjects include Literacy, Numeracy, Humanities ( Geography, History and RE), Art, DT, Forest Schools and PSHE ( Physical, Social and Health Education ).

Your child will also be taught by subject specialists for the following subjects:

  • Art 
  • Forest School
  • Music 
  • French 
  • ICT
  • PE
  • Science



Pupils' homework should not take more than 20-30 minutes to complete and it should be an opportunity for the children to consolidate the skills learnt in the classroom. No homework will be set to be completed over the holidays.



In Year 3, your child will have games coaching from a variety of staff on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. Their games kit is kept and washed in school, only returning home at the end of each term. Your child will also be involved in school matches every term.



Your child will go on a number of trips in Year 3 as part of the curriculum. The cost of all trips is included in the fees.



Communication between staff and parents is vital to an excellent working relationship and ensuring that your child gets the maximum out of his or her time at St Hugh's. If you have anything you wish to discuss please email your child’s Class Teacher in the first instance and, if necessary, a face to face appiontment will be made. However, if you have an urgent query please contact the School Office and a message will be sent to the teacher.

At four and eight week intervals in the Autumn term, you will receive an effort grade for each subject. These are also sent home at half term in the Spring and Summer terms.You will also receive written reports throughout the course of the year. 

There are two parents evenings during the year, one in the Autumn and one in the Summer term.

Parents are invited to attend various events throughout the year, including plays, the elocution competition, Sports Day, intra-school swimming gala and music concerts.
