Year 3 Topics

Year Three will start this academic year using our 'mystery whole school visit' as an inspiration for activities in all curriculum areas. Running alongside the whole school stimulus we will be focusing on the 'Build It' topic while reading of 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes. This will be followed by our 'Home and away' topic focusing on Japan, its culture, physical geography and obstacles it must overcome. We will finish the year studying the Stone Age and its legacy upon modern day Britain.



Alternating Maths and English homework will be sent home every week on a Friday and then marked the following Wednesday. Please remind your child to bring in their Homework book every Wednesday so new English or Maths sheets can be stuck in!


Spellings will be handed out every week. Children will be given 10 spellings to learn and a spelling test will take place every Friday. The children will also be asked to learn their spelling using the 'Look, Say, Cover, Write, Check' sheet to enable them to learn the spelling patterns independently.


In addition to this set homework, each week your child should read aloud most days and their reading record books signed. Please could you (or encourage your child to) write the number of pages they have read so that we can keep a record for our class reading competition.


It is also vital to encourage your child to learn their times tables. By the end of year 3, all children must be able to recall their multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 times tables in addition to the 2x, 5x and 10x tables that they would have learnt by the end of year 2.


Class Routines

PE will take place on a Thursday PM (usually Indoor PE but currently outdoor for the Spring term) and Friday AM (Outdoor PE). Named kit should be in school all week. No earrings or watches are allowed. PE kits should be bought in on a Monday morning and taken home on a Friday as PE days may change due to the weather or other school events/activities clashing.
