Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Welcome to the Year 3 page! We hope that your child continues to enjoy their time in Year 3 now that we are into the second half of our second term. The class teacher for this half term is Miss Churchill and she is assisted by Mrs Layfield and Miss Emma. Mrs Roscoe teaches French on a Thursday morning and Mr Smart will be coaching us in P.E. on Tuesday afternoons and Thursday mornings

What are we learning this half term?

This half term our theme is Monsters (Iron Man). We will be focusing on our Music, DT and Science! We have lots of fun learning experiences planned and we hope your child has a fantastic half term. 

English Work:

This week we have been looking at the poem "Cloud Dragon" and we have written some versions of our own - they are fantastic! They can all be found below: 

Our curriculum overview

This is what we will cover this half term. 

Our timetable:


What about P.E.?

P.E. is on a Tuesday and Thursday. Please make sure your child does not wear earrings on these days. 

 Please ensure you have a full kit in school. 

  • Indoor Kit: Black or navy shorts; white T-shirt; pumps. 
  • Outdoor Kit: Tracksuit or jogging pants, long-sleeved top (any design is fine with myself) and trainers. ​

  • All clothing and footwear should be clearly named.

  • All jewellery must be removed for P.E., long hair must be tied back.


Homework Books

Your child has been given a homework book. Homework will be  set as and when required. It will be stuck into your child's book with a date when it is due back into school. 


In Year 3 we use the Oxford Treetop reading scheme. It is so important that you listen to your child read each night. Please encourage and support them to read. Asking your child questions about what they have just read really helps them improve their comprehension skills.

Please make sure you record the pages read with your child and sign it. Books are changed regularly and as soon as your child has read a book it can be changed the next day, if they place it on the book changing pile.

Miss Churchill loves to know that the children have been reading! 

Times tables

In Year 3 we need to be able to recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables (this is in addition to the 2, 5 and 10 tables from Year 2). Please can you make sure your child practices these as they are need in several aspects of Maths.
