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 Bird (Class Teacher: M+T) & Mrs Evans (Class Teacher: W,Th+F)

Miss Taylor (Teaching Assistant)

Mrs. Cave (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. Spring term has seen a lot of "tea"!  We've been reading a story about a young girl and some monkeys who gather some very special tea leaves; we've written persuasive letters (in the hopes of becoming a Royal Tea Taster Apprentice) and information texts all about the world's most popular drink.  Our next text type will be recounts - diary writing.  You can help us by encouraging your child to keep a diary. There are lots of books available which are written as diaries which they will find funny and informative.

Look out for our very own pop-up books which will make their way home soon!

A few things to remember: 

3KE P.E. is on Mondays 

3B P.E. is on Tuesdays

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

We change our library books every other Friday - if in doubt, send the book in with your child each week.


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.
