Welcome to Year 3!

Here you will find out all about the learning this year. On this page you will be able to see an overview of all the amazing learning we have completed and everything we've got planned for the rest of the year. Our aim is to complete our learning in a fun and exciting way and prepare our children for the move into year 4.

Below is the overview of learning across the curriculum for 2020-2021.

The Year  3 Team are:

Great Escape - Mr M Jones

Midnight - Miss K Floyd

Billionaire - Mrs S Philpot

Our Teaching Assistants that support across Year 3 are: 

Mrs Edwards and Mrs Izkik


For the next 6 weeks Year 3 will be following a unit of work called ‘Temples, tombs and treasures’ that focuses on learning all about ancient civilisations. All of the work we are going to do has been specially written to help your child reach the learning goals; children will be reading, researching, writing, illustrating, working on their own and working in groups. We will be checking to see how well your child has learned through particular activities and asking children to explain their work, perhaps to you.


Year 3 Curriculum Targets

Targets in Year 3: It is important that your child works towards the Year 3 targets but also consolidates their learning from earlier in school.

Learning at Home

Each half term we send a Home Learning Take Away Challenge Menu home to support our learning in class.

We also give the children access to online resources to support their learning. All children have a username and password for logging into Times Tables Rock Stars and Bug Club.

Times Tables Rockstars

TT Rockstars support the learning of times tables and associated division facts through game play. The challenge is to develop your speed of recall. This is especially important as children in year 4 have to complete a national screening test for their times tables knowledge. TT Rockstars is not only fun, but a great way to prepare for this challenge.

Bug Club

Bug Club is an online library of books of an appropriate difficulty or your child. It gives you and your children access to a variety of genres and styles of text. It will also challenge the children to answer comprehension questions on what they've read and is even capable of reading to you. This resource allows children access to a huge range of texts in the comfort of their own home and is a super tool for developing reading skills at home.
