Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!



Mrs Neilson is our Teacher!

Teaching Assistants


Mrs Maydew works with us on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday.

Mrs Green supports us on Tuesday mornings.

Mrs Francis works with our class on Wednesday afternoons.


 Miss Cooper is our class PPA cover Teacher, she teaches us on Wednesday afternoon and every other Monday afternoon.





Our Topic for the Summer Term is ' India.'

Our learning will lead us to understand where India is on a map, what continent it is in and what oceans surround it, what the country's human and physical geography is like, where the rainforests are and what is inside of them, and what schools, houses and jobs are like in rural and urban India. We will also be comparing our two case studies - Bangalore and Chembakolli - to understand how two vastly different places can be found in the same country.









Homework is handed out on a Friday and expected to be handed in on the following Wednesday. The homework will be linked to what the children have been learning in class. They will be given one piece on English and one piece of Maths homework.


Spellings will be handed out on Friday with the homework, ready for a test the following Friday. 


The children will start to practice their times tables on TT Rockstars. Please make sure they are going on the website when possible. They all have their own individual log ins and can log in independently.



Please try and read with your child 5 times a week and record this in their reading record.  Reading aloud is such an important skill to be able to do!  In Year 3, children are responsible for taking home, and bringing back their reading books and reading records so they can also read whilst in school.


All children will be reading with their teacher during their guided reading session every week. As well as this, individual readers will be heard on a fortnightly rotation.

Reading books will be changed when your child has finished their book-
