Year 3 2021 - 2022

Mrs Westwood


Miss Farmer


Welcome to Summer Term in Year 3!

The teachers in Year 3 are Mrs Farmer and Mrs Westwood with Mrs Marsh.

We are all here to help you to be your best self!

We are so excited about all we have to look foward to this summer term! It we will be another busy and exciting learning journey for Year 3. 

In Literacy we will continue to follow the Language and Literacy Scheme of Work: this term we will be learning about mystery stories and folktales as our fiction units, with non-chronological reports and biographies as our non-fiction units. 

In Maths we will continue to follow the Maths No Problem! Scheme of Work. Our foci this term will be Fractions, Angles and Perimeter. Please keep practising times tables on Times Tables Rock Stars as this will aid our learning of fractions as well as support the upils as they move up to Year 4.

In History we are going to be looking at Crime and Punishment from 1066 onwards - this will be a fantastic topic full of wider learning opportunities! We are hoping to welcome a local police officer to school to promote our learning of this. 

In Geography we are learning all about South America, in particular, Brazil and Rio. Follow the web page for lots of information about this so you can see what we will be covering in class:

In Science we will be exploring magnets as well as learning about what makes us human which will provide lots of exciting, engaging practical work for us! 

You can find the Year 3 Spelling List here! Please help your children to learn their spellings in as many practical ways as you can.

For PE, we will be covering orienteering, athletics and rounders. Oue PE days are still Wednesday and Friday; children can come to school wearing their PE kits (joggers and leggings are fine for colder days).
