Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Hello and welcome to Year 3! I hope you have all had a great summer. I am looking forward to meeting you all over the next few weeks and I am especially excited to get to know all the children moving up. Our enquiry this term is “How do we find out about people in the past?”

I will using Class Dojo this year to support children in making the right choices and rewarding behaviour. I have sent details on how to connect to the class with an app at home. I will be posting pictures of the children’s learning and sending updates of class events and information. Please come and see me if you have any trouble singing in or connecting.

We will be supported in class this term by our LSA Ms Baldwin and our School Dirent trainee Mrs Muhammed. If you have any questions or queries, please see me in class after school.


Weekly homework will include a set of 10 spellings which will be tested on Fridays. Children will also be expected to read at home 3x per week and to practice their focus times table of the week.

Term 1 Enquiry

Over this term we will be exploring the questions “How do we find out about people in the past?”. As Historians we will be observing, questioning and comparing historical sources in order to explore the past of Sea Mills and the local area. As Geographers we will be using maps (inc. digital) to investigate how the area has changed over time and the impact of these changes. If you have any knowledge of the local are you would like to share please let us know!


This term we have had a fantastic visit from local historian Chris who explained how the Romans influenced life here today. She even brought some artefacts that were over 2000 years old for us to hold! We also went on a local history walk to see how Sea Mills has changed over the last 100 years.
