Year Three


Welcome to the Year 3 Class Page


We have three Year 3 classes taught by Mrs Knight, Mrs Darby, Miss Elkin and Mr Woodward.  



How can you help your Year 3 child?


There are lots of ways that you can be supporting your child with their education.  


Homework/ Spellings

Every week (Friday) Mrs Knight, Mrs Darby, Miss Elkin and Mr Woodward send out spellings.  These need to be completed and learned ready for a spelling test on a Friday morning.  Homework will be send out every other Monday and collected in the following Wednesday.  If, for any reason, they have been unable to complete homework please let their teacher know via Dojo.  



We also ask that children read for around 10 minutes every night.  We know that this has a positive impact on children's reading as well as helping them to develop a love of reading.  Although we send home a school reading book, this 10 minutes can be reading anything the children want to.  As long as it is read to an adult and their reading record signed - we're happy! 


PE Kit

Mrs Knight's/Mrs Darby's class do PE on a Thursday and Friday morning.

Miss Elkin's class do PE on Monday afternoon and Wednesday morning.

Mr Woodward's class do PE on Tuesday and Wednesday morning.  


Please can you help your children to get their PE kit ready and make sure they have it with them on these days. 


Rest & Relaxation

As much as we want the children to work hard, as a school we recognise that children also need time to wind down and relax.  We teach the children the importance of switching off devices at least an hour before bed so they can get a proper, restful nights sleep.  This helps them to focus much better during their learning the following day.


If you have any problems or concerns, the Year 3 team are always happy to speak with you, in person or via Class Dojo.

Autumn One - Creative Topic

We explored in the forest and maze to find Stone Age artefacts! We found; arrow heads, an axe head, flint and even a bone!

What does Year 3 Maths look like? 

We begin each Maths lesson with 5 mixed arithmetic questions and a challenge! In our Maths, we choose the level which we enter into to personalise our learning. We are always looking forward to reaching the next 'Gear'!
