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).

We are very excited to have the children back at school with their friends ready to learn a whole new range of topics. 

What we are learning this half term:

In Autumn 1, we will be learning lots of new and exciting things! In Maths we will be looking at place value and in English we will be looking at the story of Stone Age Boy where we will be focusing on writing effective setting descriptions of a Stone Age setting. In Science, we will be learning all about plants and in History we will be learning all about Pre-Historic Britain and how Britain changed from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. In Art, we will be painting using natural resources just like Stone Age people used to on cave walls. Please have a look at our knowledge organisers for Science and History. The children can use these to learn lots of new facts about their current topics. 


Children will be given a reading book on Mondays to be read at home. We expect children to be reading at least 3 times a week at home to an adult. Children will be given a reading record to record when they have read to an adult at home. Reading records will be checked on Friday and books will also be returned on Friday. 


Children will take part in weekly P.E. lessons. For 3W, P.E will take place on Mondays and for 3F, P.E will take place on Tuesdays. Children must come to school in their P.E. kit (white top, black trousers/shorts/leggings and appropriate trainers).

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. We will practise regularly in school but it is crucial that children are practising their times tables at home daily for rapid recall. To support them with this, please make sure your child is regularly practising on Times Table Rockstars.

Homework and spellings

In Year 3, we will set Maths and English homework every Friday on Mathletics and School Spider. This must be completed by Tuesday for teachers to check. Spellings are uploaded onto school spider 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. Please check school spider each Friday to see what homework your child has been given.
