Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


Welcome to the Year 3 website page. The team in Year 3 are:


Teachers:   Mrs Balcombe 

                   Miss Murray

                   Mrs Doyle

                   Mr Fletcher





Year 3 have PE on Mondays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school on these days. Monday is outdoor PE so please provide your child with seasonal suitable outdoor kit such as black joggers. Please send your child in with a bottle of water every day, clearly labelled with their name.


Homework is set each Monday and is expected to be completed and returned on Fridays. Homework will be marked ready for the following Monday and books will not be returned to children before that date. Our expectation is for one piece of topic work to be completed weekly as per the child’s choice of activity. We also expect the children to complete one piece of Maths homework, one piece of English homework (Which will include spellings) as well as reading three times per week. Maths and English homework will be given by the child’s set teacher so as to be appropriate and challenged to their ability.


We have recently finished our first topic this year called ‘Treasure!’ The children had a great time reading the classic novel Treasure Island and learning all about pirates!


Our topic is 'Let's Rock' and it covers the stone age in History and also links to our Science work on different types of rocks.


Other topics we have coming up throughout Year 3 are:

·       Active planet.

·       Chocolate.

·       The generation game.


We hope your child enjoys their learning in Year 3. If you have

any concerns or wish to talk to your child’s teacher can you

please make an appointment and we would be happy to discuss

your child’s progress and well-being with you.
