Year 3 Class 2023/24

Welcome to Year 3!


Who's who

Mrs Farooq - Class Teacher

Mrs Newton - Learning Support Assistant (Morning)

Miss Burrell - Learning Support Assistant (Afternoon)


Children should be reading regularly to an adult at home - at minimum of 3 times a week.  Year 3 home reading books can be changed every Tuesday and Friday. Reading Records are checked every Friday and the number of times your child had read is noted down. Reading certificates are awarded every 20th log in their record. 


Homework and Spellings

Year 3 children will take home two pieces of homework every Friday.  The first piece will have a Maths or English focus based on what we have covered in school that week. The second piece of homework will be a spelling sheet.  These words will be tested in a written spelling test in school the following Friday.  We recommend that spellings are practiced every day.


Children will also take home a new reading book every Friday.  This book will correspond with their reading level in school.  Children are encouraged to read for 10 minutes every day.  Reading can be recorded in their red reading logs.  


P.E and Forest School

P.E will take place every Tuesday. Children can come into school wearing their full P.E kit (navy/black joggers or shorts, house colour/white t-shirt and dark jogging top or blue school jumper).

Forest School will also take place every Tuesday. Please make sure that your child has their correct kit.


Autumn Term 2023

Our topic for this term will be Early Britain! Children will be learning all about the Stone Age in Britain! Children will learn when the Stone Age was and explore artefacts which will tell us more about their daily life. We will also be looking at how this changed in the Bronze and Iron Age!



This term, we will be looking at the story 'Stone Age Boy' and will be rewriting our own version of the story.  We will also be reading a non-fiction text 'Explore! Stone, Bronze & Iron Ages' by Sonya Newland to write a non-chronological report about daily life in the Stone Age!



During this term, we will be looking at place value. Children will be ordering, comparing, representing and partitioning numbers to 1000. 

We will then be looking at addition and subtraction. Children will be learning how to add and subtract 2-digit and 3-digit numbers. Towards the end of the term, we will also look at multiplication and division.



This term, we will be learning about animals including humans.  In this unit, children group foods into key categories and recognise what makes up a healthy diet. They also learn about the purpose of the human skeleton and how our muscles expand and contract during movement.
