Year 3 2021 - 2022

Welcome to Year 3

Teachers: Mrs Hampson and Mrs Clarke

Teaching Assistants: Mrs Platt, Mrs Dunning and Mrs Pritchard.

Here is an outline of the interesting and fun activities we have planned for the year.


This term we will be developing our historical enquiry skills and investigating the changes in Britain from the Stone Age to the Iron Age.


In Spring we have a geography and science based theme, 'Rockstars'. The children will be exploring the questions:

  • Is the UK the same in every region?
  • Do the rocks influence the landscape?


We will be developing our enquiry skills and investigating the earliest civilisations. During this study, we will look at where and when the first civilisation appeared whilst looking in depth at one of the following: Ancient Sumer, The Indus Valley, Ancient Egypt or The Shang Dynasty of Ancient China. We will use what we have learnt to compare and contrast the four ancient civilisations.


Please ensure that children have both outdoor PE kits in school each day. Swimming will be starting this term on Tuesdays and Outdoor PE takes place on a Wednesday.

Spellings and homework

In Year 3, the children are continuing to work towards becoming confident, fluent readers, who show a good understanding of the texts they read. Please read for 15 minutes every day and make a comment in the reading journal.

We are working our way up to the children knowing all 12 x 12 facts, please help them learn their tables regularly at home. The children need to know their 3, 4 and 8 times tables in addition to their 2s, 5s and 10s learnt in Year 2 by the end of Year 3.


Our timetable for Year Three is as follows:

  • Mrs Clarke teaches on a Monday.
  • Mrs Hampson teaches Tuesday to Friday.
  • Swimming is on Tuesdays.
  • PE is delivered by our specialist coach on a Wednesday afternoon.  Outdoor kits with trainers will be needed. Please name all items.
  • English, Maths and Spelling/Grammar are taught every morning.
  • Foundation subjects are taught in the afternoons.

Additional information

Please ensure that children have a water bottle in school each day. We encourage them to take their bottles home each afternoon so they can be washed.

In Key Stage 2, children are encouraged to bring a snack to school to eat at break time. Please ensure that this is a healthy snack such as fruit or vegetables.
