Year 3 2023 - 2024
Welcome to Year 3.
Please follow the links below for further information about our Year 3 curriculum.
In brief, this term we are looking at:
- Stories on a theme and non chronological reports in English whilst also practising our grammar and spelling skills. Spellings are given on a Monday and tested the following Monday/Tuesday - spelling lists are updated weekly on Spelling Frame. Reading books will also be sent home - please record at least three reads with your child each week and record it in their reading record. When the children use a novel as part of guided reading in school, they may also bring home the novel to read ahead.
- multiplication/division, time and shape in Maths. The children should have good recall of their x2, x5, x10 times tables. In Year 3 we are also practising our x3, x4 and x8 tables. The children also need to know the inverse calcuations too (e.g. 8 times 2 = 16 16 divided by 2 = 8). Timestables are set on a Monday on TT Rockstars to be completed by the following Monday.
Our topic is Stone Age to the Iron Age. As well as exploring our distant origins and change, the topic includes aspects of Design Technology and Art when we learn about and make Cave Art and Beaker Bell pottery.
PE is on Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons.
Finally, as Juniors i'm sure the children are ready to increase their independence and take on more responsibility. Their job is to remember: a water bottle, PE Kit, reading books and records (in book bags at all times) along with spelling and timestable books.
Miss McCormack will be teaching Tuesday to Friday and Mrs Wood will be teaching on Mondays. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Judge.
Please contact us if you need to discuss anything - either at the end of the day if i'm available, or via the office.

If children bring spelling or timestable test books home on Monday to practise mistakes, they need to be back in school on Fridays.
Please let me know if your child had any problems accessing or completing the homework.
