Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

We hope you all had a lovely summer holiday. We are looking forward to going on our exciting learning journey together this year. Please find the information below with important things you may like to know about the term ahead.

The Year 3 team includes our 2 wonderful LSAs, Miss Shelper and Mrs Winter. Mr Kelly will be covering the class on Wednesday afternoons.

Please remember that we are Athletes on Wednesday afternoons and Thursday mornings. Please ensure that your child brings in their PE kits that is weather appropriate as we will be outside.


Reading to an adult at home is vital for their development. Please ensure your child reads at least 3 times a week. All children will be awarded free books and prizes for reading at home.

Spellings are really important! We will hold our test on a Friday.  Please support your child by encouraging them to practice regularly. They can also use Spelling Shed which is an online resource.

Children are also expected to practise their focus times tables weekly.

Hello and welcome to Year 3! Here you will find updates of what is happening in our classroom and around the school.

Language Day – ‘Hello’ bunting

As part of European Language Day, we celebrated by learning about how to say hello in different languages! We then decorated the bunting with their flags and their corresponding languages. We had to be look very closely to use the correct colours!

Artists – Lighthouses

Combing our Enquiry and the book we have been looking at this term (The Lighthouse Keeper’s Lunch), we created some beautiful artwork! We learnt how important lighthouses are and used watercolours and masking tape to create this effect. The silhouettes of the lighthouses were created by cutting out a black card.

Mathematicians – 16.09.21

We have been using dienes and our place value charts to help us calculate 1, 10 and 100 more or less. This practical activity helped us to see visually what happens to our numbers.

Scientists – 14.09.21

As we think about ‘Where does darkness come from?’ this term, we learnt that light sources give out light. Through this sorting activity, we identified what we thought were light sources. Some objects reflect light which doesn’t make it a light source!


We started the year by thinking about ourselves and where we are. Thinking about where we would like to be, we drew a self-portrait being in that place. Our beautiful artwork are displayed in our classroom to remind us how wonderful we all are!
