Welcome to Year 3R!


Welcome to our Year 3 page. We hope you have had a wonderful summer break and are ready to work hard this year. Things are a bit different at the moment but we still have lots of exciting things planned for this year.


Please visit this page regularly as it will be updated with photos of our work and links to aid learning. Take a look at our planning documents to find out more about what we will be learning this year.



In Maths the children will be working on Place Value. We will be consolidating the areas covered last year to ensure concepts are fully embedded as well as using our Maths No Problem scheme of work. This will involve counting up and down in different increments, comparing and ordering numbers and making number patterns. The children will be working in their workbook completing work within numbers to 1000.



The children will be given logins for Times Tables Rock Stars. They can access the app at home on a laptop or ipad. Please encourage your child to access the website at home as this will give them much needed practice of the Times Tables they are unsure of.

In Literacy we will be reading 'One Plastic Bag' by Miranda Paul. We will be looking at the advantages and disadvantages of using plastic, leading to the children writing an advertising campaign piece.


Spellings will be sent home every Wednesday. Spelling tests will be on the following Wednesday.



Reading books will be changed every MONDAY. Due to COVID, we will not be sending reading diaries home. Library books will be changed every Wednesday. It is important that your child reads every evening with the help of an adult or older sibling.



In our History topic, we will be learning all about the Ancient Egyptians and what life was like there as a child. We will learn all about the Great Pyramids of Giza, everyday life, mummification, hieroglyphs, and religion amongst other things.




In R.E the children will be learning all about Jesus and who he was. They will also be learning about how he helped people and the stories he told.




As you know, children are currently coming into school ready for PE as we cannot change clothes in school. If this changes, we will let you know.

This half term we are are doing 'multi skills'.



Learning logs

Due to COVID, we will not be sending Learning Log books home. We will post the learning grids on Class Dojo. As and when this changes we will let you know.



If you have any questions please do not hesitate to speak to us in the morning or at the end of the school day.
