Year 3

Hello Year 3,

We hope you had a brilliant summer and are as excited to return to school as we are! We look forward to welcoming you all into key stage two. It has been a little while since we have all been in school but don’t worry it won’t take long for you to settle back in.

We cannot wait to get to know you all and start learning lots of new, interesting things.

See you soon,

WHAT ARE WE DOING THIS WEEK? – Week Commencing 5th January 2021


Hello Year 3,

We hope you had a lovely Christmas break and are looking forward to returning to school. This term our topic is called ‘Eager Explorers’.

On Friday we have our Explorer day for our ‘Stunning Start’. We are looking forward to hearing about the research you have completed and seeing you all dressed up as your chosen explorer.




This week in maths we will be recapping units from last term including: place value, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. You may wish to use your Maths Workout book to recap these units at home. In year 3 you are expected to learn the 3, 4, 8 times tables so any additional practise at home would be brilliant. You may wish to use the following links below to support you in learning these:

In English this term we will focusing on rags to riches narratives. Rag to riches stories focus on a character moving from a negative situation to a positive one. This may include character changes from sad to happy or rich to poor. This week we will start to create a text map for our model text. In grammar, we will be focusing on adverbs.



This week the spellings focus on words with short /i/ sound spelt with ‘y’.
