Year 3 will receive weekly spellings to learn and these will be tested in class on a Friday.
Children will take part in weekly tables tests and these will be sent home so any extra support can be targeted at areas that are more challenging.
Maths homework will be set each week via the Active Learn website and will reflect the learning that has taken place in class during the week.
Maths times table for every day

Year three had fun dressing up as their favourite book characters, and finding extreme places to read!
Year 3 Christmas
Year Three Egyptian Art
Wold Book Day
During Book Week Y3 was visiting many different countries together with characters from books. Sweden with “Pippi Longstocking” by Astrid Lindgren, Brasil with “Rainforest Grew All Around” by Susan K. Mitchell, New York with “Flat Stanley” by Jeff Brown, Egypt with “The story of Tutankhamun” by Patricia Cleveland-Peck, and Australia with “Wombat goes walkabout” by Michael Morpurgo.
Black History Month
As part of our work in Black History Month we studied some artwork by Faith Ringgold, and then created our own versions!
Year 3 Home Learning
You have been sending us some pictures of the wonderful work you have done at home. See what your friends have been up to in these pictures.
Year 3 Garden
Whilst school is quieter the tulips in our Year 3 flower garden have bloomed and are looking magnificent!
World Book Day
To celebrate World Book Day we came in dressed as our favourite book characters!
Year 3 Assembly
On Friday it was our Year 3 assembly. Through a combination of dance, poetry, song and rap we shared our learning about The Celts and our Class Christian Values – Peace, Trust and Creation
Celtic Knots and The Holy Trinity
As part of our topic learning on The Celts and The Iron Age we made Celtic Knots from clay. We found out that the shape had really close links to The Holy Trinty – God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit.
We have been using lots of different resources to help us learn maths in a fun and engaging way!
Year 3 Nativities
The Year 3 classes all performed their Nativities this week. The children performed brilliantly; voices were loud and clear, acting was enthusiastic, dancing was beautiful and the singing was fabulous. Teachers and all the adults who attended were very proud of them all!
We all enjoyed working as a team to make our Christmas Backdrop, taking turns and working together was really rewarding!
Year 3 held their Harvest Sale in the playground by their classes. We sold fresh produce, cakes and displayed the food we had donated for the food bank. Children shared their Harvest Prayers and took home the hummus recipe that they had tested and written during the week.
