Welcome to Year 3!


This year we have two classes: 3AR taught by Mrs Arthur and Mrs Rundle and 3W taught by Miss Way. We have two wonderful TAs helping us with our learning and they are Mrs Cooper and Mrs Marsh.

Seesaw Permission Letter

Summer Term 2 Week 1

Watch this space!

Every Monday, we will be uploading weekly letters which suggest some home learning activities you could complete. If you are having any problems accessing the online activities (MyMaths/TTRS/AR etc) or any of the links we post in the letters, then please email during the school opening hours with the subject heading ‘A message for Year 3 teachers’ and we will get back to you as soon as we can.

Thank you for your support and patience as we try our best to provide you with some home learning ideas. Miss Way, Mrs Arthur & Mrs Rundle.

Year 3 Homework Expectations



As you know, we set weekly spelling homework for children in Year 3. This homework is given out on a Friday and is expected back in by the following Thursday. Children in Year 3 and 4 also have statutory words that they are expected to know how to spell. If you would like a copy of these words, let us know and we will send one home.  


Times Tables

Children are expected to spend 10 minutes on Times Table Rock Stars three times a week to ensure they are making progress with their rapid recall of the tables. Children should know their log ins, but if your child doesn’t please contact us and we can give you their log in.



Children should also be reading their Accelerated Reader books each night. If your child would also like to read a book that they have at home, as well as their AR book, then that would be great; some books can be quizzed on in school. 


Any further questions or queries on homework expectations, then please do not hesitate to contact Miss Way, Mrs Arthur or Mrs Rundle. 

Thank you, 

Year 3 team. 




For World Book Day 2020, Year 3 and Year 1 joined forces and read a variety of books to each other. We had lots of fun and enjoyed listening to each other read. What was your favourite book of the day?

Our computing topic this term has been 'Presenters' - we have looked at filming, becoming presenters and what makes a good TV programme. On Monday 10th February, Year 3 were very lucky to have a freelance cameraman, Scott Tibbles, come in to do a talk about his work and what he does. We had lots of fun being presenters, using a camera and listening to sound. Mrs King even dressed in camo to really get into character!

In Art, Year 3 are learning about Sculptures. 3AK have been practising making tiles using plasticine. We then explored making impressions using natural and man-made objects.
