Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Welcome to Year 3 and a brand new start to the school Year! We hope you have all rested well and had a great summer holiday, ready to have a challenging but fun - filled year.


Over the Autumn Term, we have some fantastic books for you to explore in English and Guided Reading, including 'Arthur and the Golden Rope' , 'The Great Kapok Tree', 'Fantastic Mr Fox' and 'The First Drawing'.


In Maths, we will be advancing your learning about Number, Place Value and the 4 operations - addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. Our focus times tables will be the 3, 4 and 8.


We are excited to be following a new Curriculum called Cornerstones Maestro. One of our two main topics will be history based - 'Through the Ages', studying the period of history in Britain from Stone Age to Iron Age. We will be going back in time 2.6 million years and seeing how first man lived and survived in a savage world. The other topic is geography based - 'One Planet, Our World,' looking at the formation of the earth and the continents as well as using our map skills to  learn about latitude and longitude and how to use atlases. 


In Science, we will be studying the biology of humans and animals. Specifically we will be looking at the skeletal system and nutrition.


An overview is provided so you can see other areas of the Curriculum that we are studying this year. We hope you enjoy learning these topics as much as we will do teaching them.


If there are any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to speak to us at the end of the school day or drop us an email and we will endeavour to get back to you as soon as possible.


We look forward to an amazing year ahead.
