The staff in Year 3 work together as a team to provide the children with a range of exciting and engaging experiences to support their learning. We nurture social and emotional development by supporting each individual to become more independent.
We have lots of exciting topics and educational visits planned for this year to broaden the children’s learning.
Our Weekly Routine
Each morning, Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday afternoon is taught by Miss Doran, supported by Mrs Jewell.
Thursday afternoon is PE with Coach Corey. Followed by languages with Mrs Stubbs.
Friday afternoon is RE or RHSE with Mrs Taplin.
Swimming will be on a Friday morning in the Spring Term.

Reading in Year 3
Children will continue to move through the colour schemed books in school. The children will get a book to read at home from one of these colours, but they are also welcome to read books from home. I ask that the children read at least 4 times a week at home and that their reading record is signed by an adult. Children who have 4 signed reads in their record, by Friday, are rewarded with dojos points.
Children will be listened to at least once a week in school and take part in a guided reading session each week.
Homework and Spelling in Year 3
In Year 3, homework will be given on Showbie, which is an online tool we use throughout school. Children will also use this in school for some lessons.
Homework will be uploaded to Showbie on a Friday afternoon, to be returned the following Thursday. Homework will usually be Maths or English, but it could be linked to our topic in Science, History or Geography.
Spellings will be given on a Friday to learn for the following Friday, when we will have our test. All of the spellings will be uploaded to Spelling Shed, which provides games to help the children learn their spellings.
TimesTable Rockstars can also be accessed from home. This is a fantastic tool to help the children learn their Times Tables.
All logins will be given to the children at the start of the year.
