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 Autumn 2 topic is Active Planet. We will be learning about volcanoes in Geography, whilst touching upon other natural disasters. We will learn the parts of volcanoes, the process of their eruption and how tectonic plates impact on them. In Science we will be exploring the topic of forces and magnets.

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 looking at writing newspaper reports.


In Maths we will be learning how to exchange with up to 3 digit numbers in addition and subtraction.

In Year 3 everyone reads in class. We also earn smilies every week just for reading at home at least three times. For our smilies we just need a reading partner who will help us with tricky words and to record the date, the book title and the pages we have read in our Reading Record.

We read with Miss Kershaw/ Mrs Bolton 1:1. We also take part in group Guided Reading sessions, where we have chance to look at different text types in more detail, following the VIPERS structure.
