Year 3 2022 - 2023


3Sc: Mrs Schanze and Mrs McEvoy 3S: Miss Standaloft


Welcome to our Year 3 class page.

Below is an overview of some of the exciting topics we will be covering next term and also some general information about our year group.


In the summer term, we will be taking a look at ancient Egypt in history and taking a look at climate zones of the world in geography. In science we will look at forces and magnets and then move into plants, with lots of lovely opportunities for outdoor learning.



P.E. days have changed for this half term and will now fall on a Monday and a Wednesday. Monday is our outdoor slot and children should come in their outdoor P.E uniform (plain, unbranded black joggers and sweatshirt, plus school team coloured T-shirt). Full details can be found on our website. Our indoor P.E session is currently replaced by swimming.

Outdoor learning

Weather permitting, we aim to get outside for our outdoor learning sessions on a Wednesday afternoon. Children can wear normal school uniform on these days and we will give you advance warning if we will be doing anything that would require clothes for dirty outdoor work.

Spellings and homework

In Year 3, the children are continuing to work towards becoming confident, fluent readers, who show a good understanding of the texts they read. Please aim to read for around 10 minutes every day and make a comment in the reading journal.

We are working our way up to the children knowing all 12 x 12 facts, please help them learn their tables regularly at home. The children need to know their 3, 4 and 8 times tables in addition to their 2s, 5s and 10s learnt in Year 2 by the end of Year 3. Children can use Times Tables Rockstars to help them learn in a fun, enjoyable way.

Additional information

Please ensure that children have a water bottle in school each day. We encourage them to take their bottles home each afternoon so they can be washed.

In Key Stage 2, children are encouraged to bring a snack to school to eat at break time. Please ensure that this is a healthy snack such as fruit or vegetables.


Please do not hesitate to get in touch if you have any questions or queries.

Best wishes,
Mrs Schanze and Miss Standaloft
