Year 3 2016 - 2017

Mr Dean

Year 3 teacher

Miss Brocklesby

Firstly, would like to welcome back the children of Year 3. We have an exciting term ahead of us with our new topic, Prehistoric Briton.  We would like to share with you what the children will be learning this term.

Supporting your child

Using the internet at home or visiting the local library would allow your child to research and increase their learning of the topics in the Year 3 curriculum.

Children in 3B will need their P.E. kits on Mondays.
Children in 3D will need their P.E. kits on Tuesdays.

All of the children are given home reading books to read at home. I would appreciate it if you could continue to listen to your child reading at home for ten minutes per night and ask your child questions about the text your child has read. Having an adult or older sibling listen to them reading will benefit your child immensely and help them to make excellent progress in reading. If you would like to volunteer reading in school with the children then please let us know.

May we remind you that homework is given out on a Friday and should be handed in on a Monday or Tuesday by the latest. All homework should be completed without help where possible.

Spellings are handed out on Mondays and should be practised every day to prepare for the test on Friday.
The children also do a times tables test every Friday. Please practise the relevant times tables as much as you can. To practise both should only take 10 minutes a night.

As a parent or guardian of a child in Year 3, you are always welcome to speak to us at any time; we will try to be available outside every afternoon after school.


In this unit, the children will be reading the story Stig of the Dump.

They shall write adventure stories as well as writing and performing classical poetry.


In year 3 we shall be looking at the following topics

Data Handling

Multiplication. Year 3 pupils are expected to recall facts from the 2x, 5x, 10x table as well as 3x 4x and 8x table.

The children learn about emailing and sharing information safely on the internet.
