Welcome to Year Three!

Autumn Term:

Year 3 Curriculum Information

Ms Haynes is the Year 3 teacher. Mrs Chamberlain takes the children on Fridays after 10am. Working alongside us is our class TA and INA Mrs Halfa-Cree and Mrs Gorridge. Mr Boutwood takes the class for their PE session on Wednesday afternoon.

Through the Ages

In the Through the Ages project, your child will learn about three different periods of British prehistory: the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age. They will discover terminology relating to time and sequence dates to make a timeline. They explore the changes to people, homes and lifestyle throughout the different periods and investigate examples of prehistoric settlements, monuments, burials and artefacts in detail. They will also study how technology improved over time, including how the discovery of different metals changed the way that people lived.

A topic web will be sent home next week with more detail about what is being taught in each subject.

Please support your child’s learning with:

Home Learning 

Homework will go out on Friday and will be expected back the following Wednesday. If for any reason your child is struggling to complete it, please speak to us or send a message on Class Dojo.


Please read with your child at least 5 times a week and sign the reading record book. These books should be brought into school every day in your child’s book bag. Please ensure that books borrowed from school are returned. Children who are now on the Accelerated Reader Scheme will pick their own library books and complete online quizzes about their home reading.


Every week the children will receive a maths homework task on Freckle, the online resource

used in previous years or on Times Tables Rock Stars (more information to follow about this once this is set up). These online websites are a fun and engaging way for children to develop their Maths skills.

Usernames and passwords will be stuck into your child’s reading record. (If you have any problems

regarding passwords and logging on, please let us know- we will do our best to help.) 

Just a few reminders:


PE is on a Wednesday and Thursday. Children will need to come into school wearing their PE kits

(white T-shirt and black shorts/joggers). As the weather becomes colder, ensure children have

their school jumper to wear over the top and black or green trousers/leggings instead of shorts.

Earrings need to be removed or covered with tape during PE lessons. If your child is unable to remove

their own earrings, please remove them at home or provide them some microporous tape to cover them.

Water Bottles

In order to help your child to stay hydrated and ready to learn, please make sure that they bring a

named water bottle to school with them everyday. We kindly ask that bottles are filled with water


Sharing Home Learning

If your child has recently achieved something or has something that relates to our current learning, please encourage them to come into school and talk about it. We will always do our best to make time to foster the links between home and school-based learning.  However, in order to help us avoid any unnecessary distractions from our learning, we kindly request that toys and games from home are not brought into the classroom.  

If you have any concerns or queries about information included in this letter or any other matter relating to your child’s education, please do not hesitate to speak to us before or after school or contact Ms Haynes or Mrs Chamberlain via Class Dojo or the school office.

Many thanks,

Ms Haynes
