Turves Green Primary School, Birmingham

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3. What an exciting year this is going to be! We have a wide range of topics, concepts and learning to cover in order to give your children a fun filled, balanced and engaging education. 

First we would like to introduce ourselves and our roles in Year 3. 

Miss Beech (Class Teacher)

Mrs Evans (Class Teacher)

Miss Taylor (Teaching Assistant)

Mrs. Cordiner (Teaching Assistant) 


In Maths, we use a mastery approach that will continue to develop the skills in solving calculations efficiently. To make sure children fully understand, we are going to continue to use practical resources such as Base Ten, counters and unifix cubes, before moving onto written methods. Along with your support, we will be teaching your child to be fluent in the key areas of maths through frequent and varied practise. This will develop their confidence with numbers and help to recall facts accurately and rapidly. We are also continuing to use Mathletics to support your child (see link below).  Tasks will be set up to three times a week, but children can also access games and take part in challenges.


In English, we explore a wide variation of text types by looking at language and features used before planning, writing and editing. So far this term, we have invented and explained our own classroom and home help machines.  The ideas were varied and fantastic!  To round off the year, we are investigating Mr Men and Little Miss books.  We will be unpicking how the stories are put together so that we can create our very own!

A few things to remember:  

3B P.E. is on now on Tuesdays

3KE will now be swimming every Thursday.

(Please ensure your child has the correct, named, P.E. kit for these days)

Please encourage your child to bring their library book into school every day.


Spellings are tested every Friday. 

Reading should be completed daily and signed by an adult.

Mathletics to be completed at least 3 days per week and don't forget to sign up to your parent account to track children's progress.

If you have any queries or concerns please do not hesitate to book in with your class teacher, who will be happy to help.
