Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

In our class we have 30 children who all love to learn.

We use our Learning Powers to help us to learn and be resilient.

We will start Year 3 by looking at Orion and the Dark in English then go on to look at Greek Myths. The children are going to really enjoy reading these books and working hard to learn lots of new skills.

Come and See is very important in our class and we will do lots of learning about ourselves and how we fit into the church family.

Here are some of the important things we will learn in Year 3

  • English – adjectives, adverbs, subordinating clauses, fronted adverbials and joined handwriting
  • Maths – 3 digit number column addition and subtraction, fractions and times tables
  • Science – light and dark, animals and plants
  • PE – hockey, dance, gymnastics, swimming and many more sports!

In Year 3 we always show respect and SHINE!

Please keep a look out on our Class Dojo page for regular updates.
Reading books are changed every Friday
Spelling and times table tests are every Friday
PE is every Monday and Wednesday
French is every Wednesday with Mr Corcoran

Year 3 Team

Miss Leadbetter 

I am really looking forward to being your Year 3 teacher. I am looking forward to getting to know you more and watching each one of you SHINE! I can’t wait to find out your strengths and areas for improvement and help you to achieve your full potential. I love seeing children grow in confidence and becoming confident members of my class. I am particularly looking forward to teaching you Maths (including your times tables), Music and Come and See.

Mr Bates 

I have enjoyed getting to know you over the years and I am lucky enough to teach you for Science again in Year 3. I look forward to developing your questioning skills and your ability to make predictions prior to your experiments. I love teaching the Light and Dark topic in Year 3!

Mrs Sweeney 

I can’t wait to work with you all Year 3, I am really looking forward to getting to know you all. I love to help children improve their reading and times tables. I know you will all be fabulous in Year 3, let’s all SHINE together!
