Welcome to Year 3!
We are all very excited about the forthcoming year ahead which will certainly prepare your child well for their journey through Key Stage 2. In Year 3 we have lots of interesting and creative learning planned. The majority of our lessons are theme based which provide cross curricular opportunities and involve lots of fun.
Our home school relationship is paramount and we aim to keep you regularly updated with news and events. We will be setting regular home learning tasks and ask that you kindly support your child with this and communicate how they get on.
We gladly welcome parents into our year group to hear children read or offer support during lesson time. If you are able to offer some time, please contact the school office or the class teacher to arrange a suitable time.
We really look forward to working with you and your child this year and hope it is a year that they will treasure with fond memories.

Help at home
In Year 3, we encourage the children to practise their spellings, times tables and handwriting as often as possible at home. This will develop the children's confidence in these areas. After focusing on telling the time on analogue and digital clocks in maths recently, we would appreciate any extra support at home!
Practice lots of different maths topics by visiting the following websites:
The Savage Stone Age
This half term, we are looking at the 'Savage Stone Age'. The children have already experienced a day outside, taking part in activities that gave them a flavour of what it would be like to live as a Stone Age person.
Every other week, each class will be heading out to Forest school to carry on their learning about survival and skills Stone Age people would have needed to live.
We were very excited to welcome Kate, an archaeologist, into school on Monday the 15th. She spoke with the children about her job and the things she has discovered. We were amazed to find out that she had helped on a dig in Mexico, uncovering 7 woolly mammoth skeletons!
Adventure is out there
This half term we are going on an adventure!
Year 3 have been introduced to Oliver, an adventurous 10 year old boy, who delivered an exciting package to class. The children received a backpack of Useful Things and an 'Explorers Journal' to record their adventures in school.
