Year 3 2020 - 2021

Miss Fox


Mrs Waldron

Welcome to Year 3! The teachers in Year 3 are Miss Fox (3F) and Miss Waldron (3W). The teaching assistants are Miss Wilson (3F) and Miss Nourine (3W).

Happy new year and welcome back to school! Despite heading back into a lockdown, we are eager and excited to kick the year off with some exciting new topics for the children of year 3 to participate in remotely from home.

What we are learning this half term:

In Spring 1, we will be learning lots of new and exciting things! In Maths we will be looking at further multiplication and division, learning to multiply and divide with larger numbers and solving word problems.  In English we will be looking at ‘The Story of the Giant’s Causeway’ where we will be focusing on writing effective folktales. In Science, we will be learning all about animals including humans and in Geography we will be learning all about the continent of Europe and some of its major countries and capital cities. In Art, we would have been looking at painting portraits in the style of the artist Klee. However for the purpose of remote learning – we will be adapting this so that children can still participate in creating portraits but with the resources already available at home and with the aid of online resources too.  Please have a look at our knowledge organisers for Science and Geography. The children can use these to learn lots of new facts about their current topics. 


At home, we encourage children to be read with at least 3 times a week for around 10 minutes at a time. When reading with your child, we encourage question asking to help children understand different meanings in the story and understanding the narrative. Daily lessons in ‘Shared Reading’ will be posted online for the children to do. We will be focussing on two fictional stories this half term that both capture the readers imagination and creativity.


Children have the chance to participate in daily online PE lessons with Joe Wicks and other online PE teachers. Children will also have the chance to be part of a competition called the ‘Ashbury Meadow Sports Superstars’ where if they complete daily workouts and fitness activities consistently, they will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a prize!

Times tables

By the end of Year 3, children need to know times table facts for the 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Just as we practised regularly in school, it is just as important for children to practise as regularly at home. We encourage children to practise on the Times Table Rockstar’s (TTRS) app at least 3 times weekly.

Homework and spellings

With the new current lockdown and the expectation of children to learn from home, homework will not be posted onto google classroom over the weekend. If children and parents alike do wish to extend learning to the weekend, assigned tasks on Mathletics will be available from the week along with Lexia and TTRS. Spellings are uploaded onto google classroom on Monday/Tuesday and our spelling test is on Friday. Please make sure your child is practising their spellings throughout the week for Friday’s test.
