Welcome back to year 3! We hope you all had a great easter break and we are excited to welcome you back. We have some great lessons and topics to learn about this half term, including both classes meeting their partner schools and having a workshop all about prehistoric Britain

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

All of the children are given home reading books to read at home. Please continue to listen to your child reading at home for ten minutes at least 3 times per week 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. Please sign your child’s reading record each time you read with them and ensure they have this in school with them to change their book.

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

Spellings are handed out on Monday and should be practised every day to prepare for the test on the following Monday.
The children also do a times tables test every Monday. Please practise the relevant times tables (2x, 5x, 10x, 3x, 4x, 8x, 6x) 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 at the beginning and end of the school day.


In this unit, the children will be reading the story Stig Of the Dump and learning the text map.

They shall write their own meeting tales, exploring how to write an interesting character description.

We will also be watching the story in video form as this will help the children to visualise the characters and write more creative character descriptions.


In year 3 we shall be looking at the following topics

Addition and subtraction (mentally and using the formal methods, for year 3 this is the column method)



We will also be continuing to focus on multiplication and division for our weekly x tables tests.


In science the children will be exploring Forces and magnets. They will be finding out how forces are used to make things move. We shall also be investigating if all magnets have the same force.


The children learn about e safety using Purple Mash which can be accessed from home using the log in which is stuck into the front page of children’s homework books.

Theme work: History, Geography, Art & D&T

The children will be focusing on the topic 'Prehistoric Britain'. This involves looking at the three prehistoric time periods (Stone age, Bronze age and Iron age). We shall also be looking at how we can find out about the prehistoric world and what an archaeologist does.
