Year 3

Welcome to the Year 3 page. The class teacher is Miss Willson.

Year 3 Routines

Reading – In Year 3, the children read at least twice a week with adults during group reading and one to one sessions. Children bring their independent reading books everyday as we like to read at every opportunity. Everyone has a reading record where adults and children comment on what has been read each time we read. Every child is encourage to read daily to enhance their fluency and comprehension. Once they finish a book, the children will progress along our planet chart where they are working towards a prize!

Spellings – Spellings are given out on a Monday and are tested on a Friday. The children are expected to practice their spellings daily and bring their spellings to school every day as there are opportunities to practice during the day.

Homework – Homework books are sent home on a Friday to be returned the following Wednesday this is to ensure there is enough time to mark homework and give children appropriate feedback and support where necessary. Any books handed in after Wednesday will be marked the following week. Homework is a mixture of Topic, Maths and English.

PE – PE is on Tuesday and Thursday.  Children need a white t-shirt, dark shorts and plimsolls.

Staffing – In Year 3 we work with our Teaching Assistants, Mrs Poulter (Monday -Friday mornings and Tuesday and Thursday afternoons), Miss Heighton ( Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday mornings) and Mr Harness (Wednesday afternoons, Thursdays and Fridays).

Why not listen to our radio show all about our Volcanic learning! 

Active Planet:

For our Entry Point we learnt about disaster relief centres! We were very helpful when the Year 4s were seeking safety.


We had lots of fun erupting a volcano. We learnt all about how volcanoes erupt and are formed. img_4050img_4059

We also had an amazing time at Magna Science Adventure! There was so much to do and the workshop was fantastic!


Scavengers and Settlers:

To kick-start our topic we went to the woods to build shelters, scavenger hunt and build a fire! We all worked fantasticcaly in teams and really enjoyed the woods.

We also loved our visit to The Collection! We found out so much interesting information about Prehistoric Life!

Did you know that there were once Straight-Tusk Elephants living in Lincolnshire?
