Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


The teachers in Year 3 are Miss Warren (3CW) and Mrs Lamb (3JL). We are very lucky to have two, fantastic teaching assistants in our year group as well; Miss Brown (based in 3CW) and Miss Hill (based in 3JL). On a Monday, Mrs Lamb and Mrs Pritchards teach in 3CW and on a Friday 3JL are taught by Mrs Pritchards, too. 

Year 3 is the first year in Key Stage 2 so it is a very exciting year! First and foremost, we will be learning lots of new and exciting things in our Dimensions topics as 'Adventurers' including; That's all folks!, Lindow Man, Athens vs Sparta, Come Fly With Me: Africa!, Three Giant Steps and Under the Canopy. In maths we focus on the topics of numbers to 1000, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, length, mass,  volume, money, time, graphs, angles, lines and shapes, perimeter. In Year 3 we focus on learning the 3,4 and 8 times tables. In English we will study a range of texts for writing throughout the year, focusing on producing writing of various genres, purposes and audiences. 

 

For 3CW, swimming is on a Monday morning children must attend school wearing their swimming kit underneath their uniform and also bring a snack and drink.  

For 3JL, PE is on a Friday morning and children must come into school wearing their full PE kit.

 

Homework and spellings will go home on a Friday and be returned on a Tuesday. Spelling tests are on a Friday. As part of your homework, don't forget to log onto Bug Club and Times Table Rock Stars each week!

 

We will post regular updates and reminders on Class Dojo so please make sure you are signed up and check regularly. 

 

Year 3 parents are also able to contact their child's teacher via email.
