Welcome to Year 3

In Year 3, we have lots of fun learning in creative ways. Please take the time to look at our wonderful year below, and everything we do and achieve together.

Our teachers are…

Miss Heywood – Class 10

Year Group Leader

Ms Abrahams – Class 11

Mrs Berrisford – Class 11

Mr Booton – Class 12


In Year 3, the children are expected to at least 4 times a week. Reading diaries will be signed by the class teacher every morning, and they will be written in during Guided Reading sessions. The children have opportunities for free reading to promote our love of reading, and they are able to change their book regularly.


Year 3 will be focussing on a different spelling rule each week in their lessons. An example of this would be to add the suffix -tion. (complete – completion) The spelling rule of the week will be displayed within the classrooms. Children will receive a list of spellings every week to learn at home for our spelling test the following week.


P.E for class 10 an 11 is on a Wednesday afternoon and class 12 have this on a Friday afternoon. Class 10 and 11 have P.E with Mr Edwards, and Class 12 have P.E with Mr Booton. Please support the children in having the correct P.E kit in school.


All children in Year 3 are taking part in the Timestable Rockstars. Everyday the whole class has 3 minutes to complete as many multiplication questions as they can, whilst rock music is playing in the background. The children enjoy taking part in this, and set themselves targets to improve their score


Mathematics and English homework is given out every Friday by the class teachers. The children have one week to complete both pieces before returning to the class teacher on the following Friday.

Our teachers are really nice!

If you have any questions or queries please don’t hesitate to ask us. If you think you may require a longer amount of time for a discussion, we would recommend that you schedule a meeting. If you have any special skills or would like to come and listen to the children read please let the teachers know, as they would love the help.
