Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


The year 3 team for 2021/22 consists of Ms Fell and Mrs Spence (3G), Mrs Johnson (3H), along with our teaching assistants Mrs Grimstead (3G) and Mrs Holder and Mrs Carty (3H).



Year 3 PE days are Wednesday and Thursday.  Please familiarise yourself with our uniform policy in relation to PE, including health and safety requirements linked to jewellery.


Please ensure that your child brings in a water bottle and their reading book/record, as well as their link book, every day.


Children should be reading to an adult at least three times per week for at least 15/20 minutes each time.  This must be recorded in your child's reading record.


Please ensure that any belongings are labelled - it makes it easier to return when left around school, we have already had a few lost items of clothing!



Time Travellers Through History

This half term, our topic is Time Travellers Through History. The children will learn about significant events in British history.  These will include: the Roman invasion, the Anglo-Saxons and Vikings as invaders and settlers, the Norman conquest of 1066 AD, the Tudor and Stuart dynasties and the Victorian era.


The children will explore significant events and how they have shaped our nation.  They will also be comparing and contrasting the experiences of rich and poor people in the Victorian era.




This half term, the children will start to look at kenning poems as these derived from Viking times, they will then be using figurative language in their descriptive writing and applying this to longer pieces of work.  This writing will be based on The Saga of Biorn.
