Welcome to Year 3's class page! 

Miss Yates, Mrs Bailey and Mrs Finch welcome you all to Year 3.

Here you will find out everything you need to know about what Year 3 are getting up to. 



Year 3 is a really exciting year where we help the children to become more independent and take control of their own learning. We want the children to grow in confidence, enjoy learning and take pride in all of their achievements.



Spring term (January and February)

Spring term is full of exciting learning! In English, we are finishing off our work on our class text 'Winter's Child' by writing our own fantasy stories. We will then begin learning about our new text 'Seal Surfer'. In Maths, we are using our understanding from last term about the 3, 4 and 8 times tables to help us to divide. We will then start to problem solve using our new calculation skills. We will be doing lots of Geography around our new topic 'the United Kingdom'. We will learn about the different parts of the British Isles and we will learn about some important places in our country.We will learn how to use different maps and go outside to do some geographical field work. In Art, we will use different materials to explore the flags of the United Kingdom. In Computing, we will start to use the iPads and Chrome Books for coding. 

What an exciting half term we have ahead of us!

Important Information 

PE Kits

Please ensure that PE kits, fully labelled, remain in school all week to allow for flexibility in our timetable. Our PE days for this half term are Wednesday (dance) and Friday (gymnastics).


Reading books

In Year 3, reading is a priority and we encourage you to read with your child daily and record this in the yellow reading record. To help with fluency, I recommend children read their book three times. Children can change their home reading book on a Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday. We read our home readers every day after lunch. We also read texts together as a class and in smaller groups. 


Homework will be given out on Thursdays. It is due in by the following Wednesday. Spellings are also handed out on a Thursday and are tested the following Thursday. We practise the spelling words in our handwriting books every morning. 

Hot Dinners 

Please ensure hot dinner choices are completed using the new online system by Sunday Evening.
