Welcome to Year 3 

We are very excited to welcome a new group of children to Year 3.


You can help them your child at home by encouraging them to:

  • read every day
  • practise their spellings for their test each Friday
  • helping them practise times tables (by the end of Year 3, children should know the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables and be able to count in 50s)
  • working on the maths objectives from their Home Learning Journals 

There are some useful videos explaining methods we teach at school here.

Please sign your child's Home Learning Journal each week.  They will be checked on Fridays. 

There will also be a homework project for children to complete each half term.

In the first half of the Autumn term, our topic is called Ready Steady Cook!  Our learning is mostly science and DT based.

We will be finding out about our skeletons and muscles.  We will also explore how our bodies use different types of food and how to keep ourselves healthy. Our DT work will focus on seasonal foods and developing our cooking skills.

We will be learning about how chocolate is made so we can write an explanation text.  We will also write a story, describe settings and explore instructions in recipes.  Our class text is Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl.

We will also use food in our art work, printing with food and creating food-based portraits like Giuseppe Arcimboldo.

Our Computing work this term is about online safety and learning to type with increasing speed.  Your child can practise here.

In RE, will be learning about Hinduism and Ganesh Chathurthi.

We have been very happy to see so many of the children wearing their full correct school uniform and setting such a brilliant example for the rest of the school, thank you.

We would like to remind you that all children should come into school wearing their PE kit every Wednesday morning ready for their PE lessons. 

Children to bring a water bottle to class, which they can refill at regular intervals during the day in order to keep themselves well hydrated and to keep their brains working to the best of their ability.
