Welcome to Year 3!


Miss Francis is the class teacher and Miss Somaraki is the teaching assistant. On this page, you will find information about Class Three, news, pictures of things we've done and more.


Arrival and Collection Times

Children should use the one-way system to enter and exit school, entering and leaving via their external classroom door.

Children in Year 1,3, 5 and 6 are expected to arrive between 8.50am-9.00am and be collected between 3.20pm and 3.30pm. 

Where siblings are in classes with different arrival and collection times, they should arrive at 8.50am and be collected at 3.20pm


Breakfast Club & After School Club -  Children in Year R, 1 to 6 should arrive as normal and be taken to Breakfast Club room. They will be taken to their classroom ready for lessons. Breakfast Club will be open from 7.45am. After School Club will be open until 5.45pm. 


Stationery – It would be great if you could provide your child with a small, practical pencil case containing the following equipment: a ruler, glue stick, a rubber, a HB pencil and pencil sharpener and a set of colouring pencils. We will provide this equipment where required.



Please note that from the start of the Summer term, Monday 25th April, all children will be expected to return to school wearing school uniform each day as they did before Covid. This means that all children will be expected to bring their P.E. Kit to school and to change in to this. P.E. will take place on Monday and Wednesday in Year 3.

Every Monday, your child will be taught a new spelling rule to practise during the week, ready for a spelling test on Friday. Please spend time at home practising these spellings using ‘Look, say, cover, write, check’ in the Spelling Homework Booklets, as well as discussing the spelling rule. Please ensure spelling Homework Books are kept in school bags.


In Year 3, children continue to learn to write different types of texts and we use model texts to highlight the key features of these texts before children create their own versions. The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 3.

During the year, we will use a range of texts to develop our reading skills and read stories written by a range of authors. The texts we will use are detailed in the document below.


Currently, we are reading 'The Iron Man' by Ted Hughes.

Design and Technology - Year 3 have been learning about shell structures. They have evaluated existing products and drawn some nets. They have just completed their own Easter boxes which they made using Computer Aided Design.

Art - We have been learning about Henri Rousseau. We worked together to create jungle collages, inspired by Rousseau's painting, 'Tiger in the Jungle'.

We have been learning about the concept of light in RE and how it is important to Hindus. We made clay divas to celebrate Diwali.

Our Class Country is Italy.
We will be learning all about Italy. We will investigate where it is in the world and find out facts about what it is like to live in Italy.
