 Welcome to the Year 3 Page

For Year 3 Children, Parents and Carers.

 Dear Parent/Carer,

We thought we would take this opportunity to let you know some of the great things we will be learning about in Year 3 this Summer term. 


English:  At the start of the term, we will begin reading the story of ‘The World’s Worst Children’ by David Walliams.  We will be using this text to focus our English work around. We have many exciting topics that we will be covering in English, including report writing and even a persuasive text!


Maths:  We will be learning about shapes and angles, as well as revisiting strategies for the 4 number operations and putting them into context through word and reasoning problems. Times tables will still be a key focus area too, so please encourage your children to learn these.


Science: We will be learning all about animals, including humans. After half term, we will be looking at the working scientifically elements of the curriculum, including famous scientists. This is an exciting opportunity for the children to learn about the importance of nutrition and the diets of different species. Pupils will be working scientifically by exploring and comparing the different skeletal and muscular systems of a variety of animals.  We are looking forward to our school trip to West Midlands Safari Park to observe some animals!


PE: The PE days for each class are as follows;

3L and 3D—Thursday and Friday

3H —Monday and Thursdays.

Please ensure children have their named kit in school on these days. A few of our P.E topics this summer term will include rounders and athletics.


Topic: Our topic work will be looking at the changing of monarchs throughout history.  We will be making a coat of arms using textile skills and drawing our own portraits in the style of famous monarchs. We are enjoying learning about the different Kings and Queens in our monarchy today and doing some brilliant English work on them.

RE: We will be thinking about ‘What kind of world would Jesus want?’ in Christianity and looking at how we can make the world a better place.


PSHE: Our values for this term are Appreciation and Imagination.  We will be learning about the value of money and different ways to spend and save.


Computing: These areas will be linked through our topic work. We will be focusing on creating media and using internet skills.

If you have any questions you would like to ask us, please feel free to see us after school.




Homework for English and Maths will be set on a Monday.

Spellings will also be given out to learn on a Monday for the next Monday.

We also ask that you help your children when learning their times tables each week. TT Rockstars is great for this. Please could you also continue to support their reading too.

We will encourage the children to read at home daily. Please question the children about what they are reading.
