Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Not only are the children entering Year 3 this year, but it also marks their transition into Phase 3 and Key Stage 2. 

After the ups and downs of the last couple of years, we aim to continue to allow the children to develop their skills of resilience, independence and responsibility. We will work collaboratively to learn, share and explore the world around us, and we have some exciting topics to help us do this. We will continue to build friendships, make good choices and value and respect those around us.


The Teaching Staff are:

Mrs Abigail Brewer

Mrs Claire Ruiz



The Teaching Assistants are:

Tricia Thomson 

Vicky Butler

Vicky Parfitt

Cherise Phillips

Rehna Sulaiman

Book a Week - The children will need both their Book a Week record and reading book in school with them every day.

Please read with your child and sign their Book a Week records  so that they can earn credits towards their reading challenge.  They will be awarded 10 credits for every 20 minute session they read with you. Please note that this includes an adult reading to the child as well as them reading to an adult.


Water bottles are encouraged and should be clearly named.


A Healthy Snack of fruit or raw vegetable can be brought in for break times.





On National Poetry Day Year 3 joined other schools across the country with a Michael Rosen Crowdcast session. They enjoyed listening to Michael perform his poems, joined in with some and were inspired to write a poem of their own called, 'I was Born in the Potato Age'. 3B were particularly excited to hear Michael Rosen mention them and perform one of their favourite poems, 'Fast Food'!

Read 3B's Michael Rosen inspired poem, 'I Was Born in the Potato Age', here!

Mrs Abbot is reading 'George's Marvellous Medicine' by Roald Dahl. To listen in, go to the Year 4 page and catch up on the tale of George.

We are very grateful to all the parents who are keeping home learning going during this time. 


The Robin Hood Trust has written a range of home learning projects. Each weekly topic covers a broad range of fun, educational activities which are low stress but worthwhile. We would love to know how you get on with them. There is also a link below to the website where you will find previous week's projects and projects to suit other age groups. 

Check out the BBC iPlayer and Red Button service for specially-designed educational programming and lessons for every year group. There are also programmes and podcasts available on the BBC Sounds App.
Ruth and Lisa have been busy adding lots of links to the Library page. Here you will find everything you will need to help you with your reading challenge. Follow the link or find 'The Library' below the Enrichment tab. 

Each Friday we will add a new science experiment that you can try from home. Today we have ‘Tornado in a bottle’. Be careful… if you don’t tape the bottles together carefully it can get messy! If you want to take any pictures, we would love to see them when you are back at school. Have fun!
