Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

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

Our Class Country

We will be learning all about our adopted country- India. 

Talk For Writing

As a Talk 4 Writing school, we place emphasis on children learning to orally retell different types of texts using story maps and actions. Throughout the year, children will learn approximately 9-12 model texts. We ask all parents to support children with learning these texts at home orally, so that children can use them to create their own versions.


The table below highlights the text types and texts that we are learning in Year 3. The table will be updated and added to throughout the year. Please download the texts and story maps and practise retelling them.  Aim to retell the texts with actions and expression!

Stone Age Day


In glorious weather, Class 3 were able to perform their Stone Age drama and singing to their adults. In addition, the roundhouse was decorated with their artwork. They were then all able to relax by eating their bread and drinking their fruit juice which they had made.
