Year 3 2021 - 2022

Miss Fox


Mrs Waldron

Welcome to Year 3! The teachers in Year 3 are Miss Fox (3F) and Miss Waldron (3W). The teaching assistants are Miss Almeida (3F) and Mr Wall (3W).

What we are learning this half term:

In Spring 1, we will be learning lots of new and exciting things! In Maths we will be looking at measurement including length and mass as well as exploring fractions. In English we will be looking at the story of ‘Stig of the Dump’ where we will be focusing on writing effective character descriptions. In Science, we will be learning all about animals including humans and the nutrition needed for a healthy life and in History we will be revisiting Pre-Historic Britain and whether developments in the Bronze or Iron Age were the most significant. In Art, we will be focusing on sculpture – making clay pots similar to those of uncovered artefacts from the Bronze Age. Please have a look at our knowledge organisers for Science and History attached to this page. These can be used to help the children with their learning of the topics. 


Children will have a reading book to be read at home and changed weekly. We expect children to be reading at least 3 times a week at home to an adult. Children will be given a reading record to record when they have read to an adult at home. Reading records will be checked on Friday and books will also be returned on Friday. Please be reminded of the online reading website ‘MyOn’ where children have their own logins to read a wide selection of books at their own leisure.


Children will take part in weekly P.E. lessons. For 3W, P.E will take place on Mondays and for 3F, P.E will take place on Tuesdays. Children are to come to school in their school uniform with their PE kits in a bag. There are facilities at school in which they can get changed. This PE kit is to consist of a white top, black trousers/shorts/leggings and appropriate trainers.

Times tables

By the end of Year 3, children need to know times table facts for the 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times tables. We will practise regularly in school but it is crucial that children are practising their times tables at home daily for rapid recall. To support them with this, please make sure your child is regularly practising on Times Table Rockstars.

Homework and spellings

In Year 3, homework is usually set on a Friday. This must be completed by Tuesday for teachers to check. Homework is either on google classroom or tasks are assigned on our apps - Mathletics, Lexia or Timestables Rockstars. Spellings are handed out on Monday/Tuesday and our spelling test is on Friday. Please make sure your child is practising their spellings throughout the week for Friday’s test.
