Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


In Year 3, the class teachers are Miss Jordan and Miss Dawson. The teaching assistants in Year 3 are Miss Moore and Mrs Hall. 


Welcome back to Autumn 2! This half term we will be learning all about mountains in Geography and thinking about the Key Question: How did Mount Everest get so high?

Our text in English is called Everest: the remarkable story of Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay by Ranulph Fiennes. We will be focusing on handwriting, spelling, punctuation and key features of a diary. 

In Maths, we are consolidating our learning on column method addition and moving onto column method subtraction. We will be continually practising our times tables each day and ask that you practise these at home using Times table rockstars. 

We will be investigating magnets and forces in science and our Key Question is: Can metals become magnetic?   

Our topic in RE this half term is incarnation and finding out about the holy trinity and it's significance to the Christian faith. 


PE is on Thursday in 3 Blue and Wednesday in 3 Green. As for the moment, children will just be changing into their pumps. 


Reading books will be handed out on a Thursday every week and must be returned to school the following Monday. This is to ensure the books can be quarantined for the correct period of time before they are sent out again. Please ensure your child brings their reading books to school every Monday.


Homework is completed online via Mathletics and Spelling Shed. It is set on a Friday and is to be completed by the following Wednesday.
