 Welcome to the Year 3 Page

For Year 3 Children, Parents and Carers.

Dear Parents/Carers,

We thought we would take this opportunity to introduce the Year 3 team and let you know some of the great things we will be learning about in Year 3 this Autumn term. The year 3 teachers are; Miss Donald, Miss Lewis and Mrs Hudson and the teaching assistants are; Miss Rogers, Miss Pinnell, Mrs Newman, Mrs Burton and Miss Longhurst. We look forward to meeting you and getting to know your children.

English: At the start of the term, we will be studying a book called ‘The Stone Age Boy’ to link to our history topic. From this, we will be writing our own imaginative stories. Moving on from this we will be reading and producing work based around ‘The Christmasaurus’. We will look at using paragraphs and using expanded noun phrases to write detailed setting and character descriptions.

Maths: This term we will be consolidating our knowledge of place value and using this to help us solve problems. We will then move on to look at strategies for additions and subtraction. Throughout the year, there will continue to be a particular focus on learning times-tables.

Science: We will be learning all about Rocks and Soils and Light. We will be finding out all about the different types of material that is under our feet and researching a famous scientist; Mary Anning.

PE: This will take place on the following days;

3D—Monday and Tuesdays, 3L—Monday and Wednesdays, 3H—Tuesday and Wednesdays. Please make sure PE kits are in school on these days and are clearly named.

Topic.: Our history topic is The Stone Age. We will be looking at chronology and timelines and producing some Stone Age art using printing techniques and making our own cave paintings.

RE: We will be thinking about “What do Christians learn from the Creation story?” in Christianity and after half term, “How do festivals and family life show what matters to Jewish people?”

PSHE: Our focus is Resilience and Kindness.

Computing: Computing is taught throughout the curriculum but this term especially, the children will be learning about writing computer code.

Spanish; The children will be introduced this term to learning Spanish. This term looks at greetings and being able to do simple counting.


Homework for English and Maths will be set on Mondays. This includes spellings to learn each week.  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.

Should your child be away on the day that homework is set, or happens to misplace their homework, please ensure that they ask the class teacher for it on their return.

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

Thank you,

Year 3 Team
