Welcome to Year 3's class page! 

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


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



We are really excited to start the new term in Year 3 so that we can continue with more fantastic learning. 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.



Autumn Term (November and December)

We are looking forward to finding out what is beneath our feet in our science topic linked to rocks and soils. We will be discovering a whole new world!  In English, our class text is Winter's Child. We will be doing writing across a range of genres about this snowy picture book. In Maths, we are learning different strategies for subtraction and we are starting work on our 3, 4 and 8 times tables. In French, we are learning greetings, days of the week, months of the year and couting to 50. In History we are studying the Stone Age moving to the Bronze Age and are looking forward to our Stone Age workshop on Tuesday 12th November. Our art work will be linked to our Stone Age studies. Mrs Turnbull is exploring mini models, pottery and fabrics. Within PSHE we are looking at ways to develop our resilience. Our main focus in RE this half term will be around Christianity and how Jesus is portrayed within this religion.

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 Thursday and Friday.


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. Our class novel this term is Ice Palace by Robert Swindells. 


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.
