Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


We have 60 brilliant and enthusiastic pupils over two classes. The year 3 team is Mr Benney, Mr Lucas, Mrs Ryall, Mrs Smith, Mrs Bailey, Mrs Bacon, Mrs Bridges and Mrs Tolley.   


During the autumn term we are working as if we are a team moving objects at ports.  We will be finding out about magnetism, cranes and world geography. 

Maths Curriculum

In Key Stage 2 we use the White Rose Hub Maths plans. We follow a concrete, pictorial and abstract approach to learning in maths.


Reading Curriculum

In Key Stage 2 children read a whole class text and develop their reading skills by discussing the text and working on retrieval, inference, deduction, viewpoint, vocabulary and author choice challenges. This year  we have just started ''Bill's New frock''

We read non fiction texts as part of our Mantle work and every week we take delivery of the First News newspaper. 

Some children need extra 1:1 reading practice and do this as part of our Reading Champions programme.

Children have weekly reading homework where they read a text and answer questions on what they have read. 

Spelling Practice

Spellodrome- In order to support the children to practice their spellings we are using the 'Spellodrome' website. The children have all practiced logging on with their individual passwords  in school and they should have brought these  home so can use it together.
