Year 3

Welcome back to a brand new school year and welcome to year 3!

Mrs Shepherd, Miss Hewitt and I are extremely impressed with how well the children have settled in to year three. They are showing us they are real learners and are tackling learning challenges with enthusiasm and resilience. Well done year 3!


On this webpage you will find information about what we are learning this half term, key events, pictures of the children's learning and useful websites to visit. 


If you have any other questions, please do not hesitate to send me a dojo message and I will respond within the working week. 


I am looking forward to seeing all the progress the children make this year!

Y3 Weekly Timetable

The Stone Age

This half term in English we will be focusing on non-chronological reports, recounts and diary entries. We will be reading ‘Stig of the Dump’ as well as lots of other books based during the Stone Age. We will discover key features of these genres and we will be trying to replicate these in our own writing!

We will be using lots of exciting vocabulary, punctuation and grammar, such as using amazing adjectives in expanded noun phrases correctly to make our writing FANTASTIC.  

In maths this half term we will be learning the place value of numbers to 1000. We will also be learning how to add and subtract with numbers to 1000 using formal written methods such as the column method.


Please keep practising your Times Table Rock Stars at home – it is amazing to have a fast recall of facts!

This half term we are learning about rocks, soils and fossils in science. The children have been very excited about this learning and have taken it upon themselves to go rock collecting in our school environment! Above is a picture of the rocks they have collected so far in our school.
