Year 3 

Rights Respecting Articles in Child Friendly Language


Year 3 is an important year in your child’s learning. In Maths, children will build upon their place value understanding to become confident with using numbers up to one thousand. They will also build on their times tables knowledge to learn the 3, 4, 6 and 8 times tables, by the end of the year. In writing, children will be learning to write more detailed sentences by using a range of conjunctions and adverbials. They will begin to develop their understanding of how to organise sentences into paragraphs

The Year 3 Team

In 3T there is Miss Thomas, the Year Lead, in 3B there is Mr Bawden and in 3S there is Miss Strzalkowska-Guerra. All three classes are supported by Mrs Hayden.  


What we are learning this term 

 This term our Discovery topic is Rainforest which is part of the school’s Spring ‘We are Geographers’ focus. We will be learning all about life in a Rainforest whilst practising geographical skills such as interpreting maps and analysing data. To link with this, our Science topic will be Plants.


In English, we will be developing our writing skills, whilst focusing on some great texts, linked to our topics and Core Values. In Maths, we will be particularly focusing on Multiplication and Division, followed by an opportunity to apply all our number skills in the context of Money and Measures.
