WELCOME TO YEAR 3! We are delighted to  have you in our class and we are so excited for the year ahead. Please check the class website for regular updates about homework, home reading, uniform and events. You can also check our class Twitter page to see what we are up to in class. 


Reading at homeThe Iron Man: A Children's Story in Five Nights: 1: Ted  Hughes, Tom Gauld: 8601300335667: Books

Reading is essential to support your child's learning and progress in school. The best way to do this is by working in partnership with parents and families. We therefore expect that children read at home every day, this is their homework and is the most important thing a child can do to ensure good progress. Chldren can also access Bug Club at home, we will write their logins in their reading records for you to access at home. 

Children's books will be changed every Friday and comments will be left in your child's reading record. 

Our whole class book this term is 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughs. 


Spellings will be given out every Friday and are in the form of a handwriting worksheet. Children are expected to complete these and bring them back to school the following week before a test on Friday afternoon. If your child is given seperate spellings, these link with the levelled books that they are reading in school with an adult. Your children will be tested on these ones. 


This term we have created some beautiful art work around the theme 'Jesus is the light of the world.' 



Our driver text this term is Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamora. We are doing lots of wonderful creative writing around this text and will be finishing with writing a Historical narrative.

P.E will take place every Tuesday afternoon. Children can come to school in comfy sport gear or their P.E kits. Throughout the year, children will still have access to our Forest School, and learning outdoors will be integrated into our class sessions. 


In year 3, children learn their 3, 4 and 8 timestables. Fluency in their tables helps to support children's learning in other areas of Maths. Children have been given a Timestables Rockstars login in which is in the front of their reading record. You can log on at home and practice! We will also send home some timestable worksheets on a Friday for some extra practice!

If you have any questions, please contact Miss Brown on


This week, Year 3 began their exciting new topic all about the pre-historic period of the Stone Age. We began our learning by exploring the chronology of the of Stone Age and how it fits into our understanding of world History. We also began our working on a  timeline examining the key events of the period.
