  1. Our Children
  2. Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


Teacher : Miss Adler

TA: Mrs Rawlings and Miss Payne


Welcome to Year Three! I hope you all had a great Summer break and are ready to start an exciting year ahead.

Our topics for this half term are Ancient Egyptians followed by Stone Age through to the Iron Age. During topic lessons in the first half term, children will be learning about the history of Ancient Egypt. We will also be studying this topic in English through our non-fiction text on the Ancient Egyptians.

In Maths our focus will be numbers. We will be learning about place value and addition and subtraction using mental and written methods. In Science we are learning about Forces and Magnets followed by Animals and Humans.


PE lessons will take place every Tuesday and Thursday afternoons. Please make sure that PE kits are named and at school on these days.


Children will be given a designated day to read with an adult at school. Their books will be changed on that day providing that they have read them with an adult at home. We expect children to read at home three (or more) times each week.  Please sign the reading record provided. Reading will also be taught by daily guided reading lessons. During these lessons children will be taking part in a range of activities such as reading comprehension, read and respond, guided reading and independent Reading. I will read with a different group each day.


Homework will be handed out every Wednesday and will consist of spellings, Maths and a reading/writing activity. The homework needs to be handed back in on the Monday and the children will also be tested on their spellings that day.


Thank you for your support. If you require any further information, please do not hesitate to speak to me. 

Many Thanks,

Miss Adler
