Welcome to Year 3

Miss Allerton - Class Teacher         Mrs Stubbs - Teaching Assistant

Welcome back! We hope that you have had a refreshing break and that you are ready for learning about our new topics.


In Spring 1, we will be reading an abridged version of  “Alice in Wonderland” based on the classic novel by Lewis Carroll.  We will be writing stories with dilemmas, focusing on character profiles, settings, problems and resolutions.

In Spring 2, we will be reading “The Tin Forest.”  We will write explanation texts and list poems.

We will be continuing with our handwriting focus and will combine this with our spelling list.  Please do use Spellodrome to learn the spellings with fun games.


In maths, we will be continuing with Multiplication and Division.  In Year 3, the children must be fluent with the 3,4 and 8 times tables.  We will then move onto money, statistics, length and perimeter and fractions.  Homework will be set on Mathletics each Friday for the following Friday.


Our Science will be focused on Forces and Magnets in Spring 1, moving onto Plants in Spring 2.


Spring 1 – History linked to the local area, with some geographical links.
