Our Amazing Teaching Staff:
Look what we've been up to recently:
Last term we learned all about the Stone Age! We made Stonehenge out of biscuits (yum!) and created all kinds of weapons. We acted out then wrote a story set in Stone Age times and did some Stone Age painting too!
Look at some of our pictures...
In Y3 we will be learning...
This year we will be studying 6 different topics. An overview/breakdown of these can be found below...

Reading at Home & Online
A reading record can be found with your child's homework folder. It should be completed at least 3 times per week (by an adult) to record reading at home.
Children can now access reading books online. The class teacher will have set up reading books online at each child's current book band. Login details will have been given to each child at the start of the year. Click the image above to link to the 'Bug Club' website.
Spelling Homework Packs
Your child will have the appropriate revision sheets in their homework folder but a spare copy can be downloaded here if you wish! Your child should only revise one sheet per week.
Maths Homework Packs - 2 Minute Challenges
To be tested each week - Your child will have the appropriate revision sheets in their homework folder but a spare copy can be downloaded here if you wish! Your child should only revise one sheet per week.
Further Homework Support
Purple Mash is a fantastic resource that allows your child to word process, create images, create code and much much more. Every child has a login for Purple Mash and this can be used both at school and at home. Please click on the image above to link to this site.
Please ask your child's teacher if you require a new username and password.
Additional times table challenges can be created from the website below.

Fitness Fridays - with Elite
All classes in Y3 get a chance to work with the Elite Coaches on a Friday. To make changing between classes easier, we would prefer pupils to come to school wearing their official Green/Black PE kit on Friday instead of their regular uniform
This term we will be doing athletics outside. Children will need to wear their school black PE shorts/black tracksuit bottoms & t-shirt for these lessons. Black school hoodies maybe worn over the top to keep pupils warm for the rest of the day. As this is the uniform for the day we ask that children wear the official school PE kit rather than sports clothing from other clubs etc.
PE Day = Friday
ALL Y3 Children should come to school in their PE kit (see above)
(Some sessions maybe outdoors so children may need warm joggers/hoodies and trainers/pumps - class teachers will advise each half term)
3D - Lessons with Mrs Hopps & PE with Elite
3U - Topic & Music
3P - Art
3G - PE with Elite & Lessons with Mrs Hopps
