Welcome to Year 3

Miss Allerton - Class Teacher         Mrs Stubbs - Teaching Assistant

We have got a really interesting, engaging and action packed year ahead of us! 

About Miss Allerton – “I really love music and in my spare time, I am found playing the piano, violin or singing! I also love to read.  I’m very excited about being in Year 3 and think we’re going to have a brilliant year.”

About Mrs Stubbs – “I love gardening, cooking and spending time with my family.  I’m really happy to be in Year 3 with the children again.”

Our topic this half term is “The Stone Age.”  Our English, History and Art will all be covered under this topic.  Our text will be Stone Age Boy.   We will be writing adventure stories and letters, using powerful language.  In topic, we will look at Light and will write some poetry connected with this.

In Autumn 2, our topic will be “Volcanoes,” which will cover English, Art and Design and Geography.  We will write non-chronological reports and think in depth about non-fiction writing.

Over the term, our maths work will mainly focus on Place Value and Calculation, working with numbers up to 1000.

This half term, the children will need PE kit every Tuesday and Wednesday.  They will also need suitable clothing for Forest School each Friday. 

Please make sure that the children have their Accelerated Reading book in school every day as this forms part of our Guided Reading sessions.
