Welcome to our Year 3 Class page. 

This page will be updated every half term to help to keep you up to date with the topics we will be working on in class. 

There will also be a copy of my long term plan for the year and each half term's medium term plan as we get to it. 

I will post helpful websites to support our learning and a copy of the spellings for the half term. 

Enjoy using our class page! 


The children can bring a bookbag to school to put their homework, snack, reading diary and reading book in. NO RUCKSACKS PLEASE.

If children want to bring in a water bottle, it must be named and only contain water. It will come home every night to be washed and refilled.



Children will need their PE kits in school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  Please ensure your child has suitable kit, including a supportive pair of trainers and separate PE socks.




We will continue our work on the book Seal Surfer, writing a recount in the form of a letter using the first person.  We will then spend time developing our poetry skills, writing and performing poems about Winter.  Our next class novel will be Winter’s Child.  From this, we will be writing our own fiction stories based on a fable – creating characters, setting and plot.  We will also be developing our use of conjunctions to express time, place and cause.

We will be continuing our work on addition and subtraction, deepening our understanding of mental and written methods.  We will also be progressing to use apply these skills to a range of problems.  Additionally, we will be also be moving on to explore multiplication and division.  Specifically, multiplying by 3, 4 and 8 and dividing by 3 and 4.


Throughout the half term, we will be continuing to develop strategies for learning statutory spellings.  We will also be learning a range of homophones, prefixes mis- and re- and words which have the /I/ sound spelt with a y.


Times Tables

We will be focusing on our 3, 4 and 8 times tables, improving our fluency and confidence.

We will be practising our handwriting daily to achieve consistently clear letter formation and to rebuild our fluency and stamina after lockdown.




Our topic will be forces and magnets.  We will investigate the properties of magnets – how they have two poles and can either attract or repel each other.  We will work scientifically to group objects according to whether they are attracted to magnets or not and identify magnetic materials.  We will also study how objects move on different surfaces and relate this to our growing knowledge of forces.


We will be having tag rugby coaching lessons on a Tuesday, giving us the opportunity to explore a new sport or develop our existing skills.

We will be looking at Islam and why Muhammed (pbuh) is a good example to others.  We will then be relating this to our own lives and thinking about who are good examples to us.



We will be introduced to learning about the language of music through playing the glockenspiel.  Our learning will be focused on exploring and developing playing skills through the glockenspiel.
