Year 3 2019 - 2020

Mrs Harland

Hello and welcome to Year 3's Class Page!

Welcome to your first term in Key Stage Two! I hope you had a restful holiday and are ready and raring to go as we countdown the days until Christmas. Your Year 3 teacher this year is Mrs Harland, who will teach you all day Monday to Thursday, and on Friday mornings. On Friday afternoons we are very lucky to be taught by our fabulous HLTA Mrs Deakin, and our incredible PE coach Danielle. We also have the very talented Miss Gibson working with us every morning.

Below is our curriculum web for this term. At the bottom of the page you can find links to download useful files, such as the Learning Leaflets, Spelling Lists and strategies and handwriting support. You can also find links to useful websites, such as Times Table Rockstars. If you have lost your log-ins for these pages, please get in touch.

Year 3 Curriculum Web

Our Topic this term is called Water, water everywhere, and it is all about water in its different forms. We will find out (amongst other things) about the water cycle and the Arctic Circle, and our texts in English are centred around the ocean and snow.


We will have PE on Monday and Friday afternoons, so you must have a full PE kit ready for these days. However it would be a great idea to have your PE kit in school all week, in case any extra exciting activities happen! Make sure you also bring a water bottle into school daily, and remember to take it home with you at the end of the day.



In Year 3 you will be given Learning Log and Handwriting homework on a Friday, this needs to be handed back in on a Wednesday. If your homework arrives on Thursday or Friday, we may not have chance to look at your amazing work and mark it before new homework goes out! Maths homework will also be given out every Friday and needs to be handed in the following Wednesday. Spellings will be sent home at the start of the term, for the weeks leading up to Half Term. We won’t be formally testing spellings every Friday, but instead will expect the children to use those words in their work each week.


Reading at home

Now you are in KS2 we encourage you to choose and change your own reading book. We would like you to think carefully about the books you are choosing and try to read lots of different types of books, such as: non-fiction, fiction, poetry and plays. We love it when you read as much as you can at home and expect you to read at least 3 times a week. We will keep a daily record of who has been reading at home. It would be great to hear about any books you have really enjoyed- why not share them with the class by writing a book review in our class library? We also choose a Reader of the Week on a Friday. The person who has impressed us the most with their reading is allowed to choose a prize from the prize box!


We are really excited to work with you this year and can’t wait to see your wonderful work!

Mrs Harland and Miss Gibson
