Welcome to our Year 3 page. This page will contain links and resources to help with your learning.
Miss Samuels, Mr Grant, Mrs Rudge and Mrs Hennessy-Priest make up the Year 3 team, supported by Mrs Movahed, Mrs Fleming and Mrs Parton.
We have an exciting year of learning ahead with a revised curriculum and new topics to engage all pupils across the curriculum.
Our curriculum pages set out the topics for each subject area for the year, but our focus topics for this term are:
Science: Light and Forces & magnets
History: Changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age
Geography: Mountains, volcanoes and earthquakes
Our timetable- please note, our timetable can vary slightly each week in response to other events in school and availability of resources.
Maths homework goes out on a Tuesday and is to be returned on a Friday.
English homework goes out on a Thursday and is to be returned on a Monday.
In addition to this homework, we do expect pupils to read a good book regularly and add to their reading journal, as well as, regular practice of multiplication/division facts and spellings to try and make this learning 'stick' in their long term memory.
Year 3 PE timetables are as follows:
- 3RHP - Monday and Wednesday
- 3S - Monday and Wednesday
- 3G - Monday and Wednesday
All children are expected to participate in PE lessons unless a valid reason has been given by parents/carers. Children must have a full PE kit in school at all times. No jewellery, including watches, should be worn during PE lessons. Hair must be tied back.
Year 3 visit the library every Thursday morning. Children can choose up to two books (one fiction, one non-fiction) and will write about their chosen book(s) in their planner.
We ask pupils to ensure they have their planners in school each day. We use the planner as an ongoing reading journal and to support learning in class. Once we have assessed pupils we will also highlight the spellings that your child can spell on the corresponding list in the back of their planner- this will be added to over the course of the year.
Once your child has signed up to play a musical instrument, pupils are asked to check the timetable and bring their labelled instruments in on the appropriate day. All instruments are now to be kept in the music room.
