Who is in Year 3?

 Miss Highton and Miss Jones will be teachers in Year 3 this year and they will be supported by Mrs Collins.

In Year 3, we will be continuing the active learning that the children have had in Key Stage 1, whilst training the children for more formal assessment and written work. We will be striving to keep a sense of fun in everything we do, but also learning how to become independent and mature.

During the first half term, we will be learning about states of matter in science, as part of our topic on water. We will be observing demonstrations in to four important processes: melting, freezing, evaporating and condensation.  We will then turn to geography to explore the water cycle and the children will be deepening their understanding by making their own water worlds. Also, we will study rivers and map out the river Mersey. 

After the may half term holidays, our focus will be on the human body and the digestion system.  In design technology, children will be designing and making their own healthy lunch, using their topic learning to help them along the way. 

In RE, we will be thinking about the question, ‘Are all churches the same?’ We will look at places of worship from other faiths, comparing them to the Christian churches we have studied and visited.

Remember to write any questions you have in our Big Question book, and we will talk about these in our Reflection times at the end of the day.

What can you do at home?


In Year 3, we will still be developing our word reading but we begin to focus on our understanding of the things we read. It is vital that the children read a minimum of three times a week at home, and we encourage you to ask your children some questions about what they have read in order to develop their understanding of a text. Sample questions that you can ask your child  to help develop their comprehension will be in your child's reading record.


Each week we will set some TT Rockstars homework for the children, which can be done at home or in morning Maths club. The activities are fun and help to develop quick recall of the times tables that the children have been learning in class. All children are expected to complete at least 5 sessions each week but children are regularly rewarded for any additional sessions completed.


The children will regularly be given a set of spelling words that they are expected to be able to spell correctly. These spellings will be stuck into your child's reading record, and we will be practicing them in school every day. Please help your child in learning these spellings at home.

If you would like to contact us regarding your child's progress, please make an appointment with the class teacher by calling the school office or by email using the form on our contact page.
