Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Our class teacher is Miss Kershaw

Our teaching assistant is Mrs Bolton.

Our class is friendly, caring and a place where everyone is encouraged and eager to learn.

Our PE days are Monday and Friday. Children will need to have an indoor and outdoor PE kit in school for these days.

Our Spring 1 topic is Ancient Egypt. We will be using a chronological timeline to travel through the ancient time, exploring why the River Nile was important and the process of mummification. We will also be studying Howard Carter and his findings. In Science, we will be exploring the topic of animals (including humans).

The topics for the rest of the year are:

  • Spring 1: Ancient Egypt
  • Spring 2: Time and Place, Earth and Space
  • Summer 1: Explorers and Adventurers
  • Summer 2: Blue Planet


In English we will be exploring non-chronological reports and poetry.


In Maths we will be learning how to multiply and divide by 3, 4 and 8 using concrete manipulatives, pictorials and abstract methods.

We read with Miss Kershaw/ Mrs Bolton 1:1. We also take part in shared reading sessions, where we have chance to look at different text types in more detail, following the VIPERS structure. To develop our love of reading we enjoy choosing books to read for pleasure from our class library. Our favourites include titles by David Walliams, Roald Dahl and Dick King Smith.
