In the links above you will find out about the exciting learning that is yet to come this year- please have a browse.


Below you will find important information regarding your child's PE time slot and information on reading.


At the bottom of the page you will our class blog- a weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within Year 3.


Reading Books

Every child in Year 3 will have a reading book and we encourage them to read with an adult at home. Children will bring home a book of their choice.  Please ensure that a note is made, in your child's reading record, each time they read at home. These notes will count towards your child earning a certificate, or even a prize! 


P.E Days

Year 3 will have PE once a week, however the day may change. Please ensure that your child has their PE kit in school every day. Long hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with PE if they have earrings in.

Class blog 3B – 21.09.23


English- We have been learning about time conjunctions, first, then and after. We added them along with imperative verbs to make our own instructional text – How to wash the Saber-toothed cat. PS


Maths – This week we have been looking at counting numbers in 100 and to a 1000’s. We used the hundred squares and dienes to support our learning- RS


History- We produced a fact file on Stonehenge, I could not believe that it was not built all at the same time. It is still standing today and lots of people visit the site. DR


Art- We made collages from different objects that we used to produce a rubbing from. AS


PSHE - We looked at rights, responsibilities and choices and what they would look like in a nightmare school and a dream school. We had a discussion on how our school fits in. We also looked at our ‘Learning Charter’ the rewards and consequences for our behaviour.


Science – We planned an experiment for next week to test weathering on igneous, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks.
