Year 3

Welcome to Year Three!




In our class we are the Persevering Panthers because we always persevere and try our best. We don't shy away from a challenge and we understand that making mistakes is part of learning.

Our class teacher is Miss Major and our wonderful teaching assistant in Year 3 is Mrs Bullin.

We also have Mrs Brabbs in class for PPA cover.

This year the children will need to learn their 3, 4 and 8 times tables. This will be in addition to the 2, 5 ad 10 x tables that your child should already know. Each child should be able to recall all of their times tables at speed in preparation of their multiplication check next year. In order to help your child achieve this, school has subscribed to a platform called Times Table Rockstars, this is available both online and as an App (Free for you to download). Please encourage your child to play this app at least three times a week for approximately ten minutes as this will help them greatly with their school work. Rewards will be given in class for children who play 5x a week - please play a 'soundcheck game' as this allows me to track the days that you logon. 

Rockstars logins are on your child's reading record - they have not changed from last year.

We love reading in Year 3!

Please read with your child at least 5 times a week and record this in their reading records.

Reading really does make such a huge improvement to learning and also in instilling a love of reading with your child.

  Each time your child reads at home they will gain a raffle ticket. At the end of each half term, we draw the raffle for one lucky pupil to win the reading raffle prize! The more times you read the more chance you get to win!

Your child will have a weekly spelling test that takes place on a Friday. Spellings will be sent home with your child every Friday and we will always make time to teach the spelling rule and practise the spellings in class.

Our science topics for our Summer term is Animals including Humans.


We will learn about the structure of the human skeleton and how the muscles also work alongside the skeleton to support and protect the human body. We will investigate how skeletons differ in different animals and why this might be. Finally, we will look at nutrition and the importance of eating a healthy diet.


Have a look at the school's science page to find out some extra science activities that your child can do at home. 



We will be learning all about the changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Bronze Age.
