Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


Mrs Snow and Miss Brooks welcome you to year 3. Our superb teaching and learning assistants are Mrs Parker and Ms Webber.

In year 3, we learn about some very exciting topics!

  • Autumn 1: Dangerous Dinosaurs

  • Autumn 2 and Spring 1: The Savage Stone Age

  • Spring 2 and Summer 1: Romans on the Rampage

  • Summer 2: James and the Giant Peach


We have a rich and varied curriculum in year 3 and bring learning to life through visits and hands-on experiences.


Weekly Homework

Please encourage your child to read at home at least 3 times a week. If your child reads 3 times a week, they will receive a merit. Remember, your child does not have to read their reading book, they can read a book from home or from the library.

Please encourage your child to go on Times Table Rock Stars regularly to practise their times tables. In year 3, we learn our 3, 4 and 8 times tables. Children should know their 2, 5 and 10 times tables from KS1.


Regular Dates

On Monday afternoons, we attend swimming lessons at Heanor Leisure Centre and on Tuesday afternoons throughout the year, we will be learning to play the flute with music teachers from the Schools Music Partnership.

PE takes place on a Thursday morning. Please ensure your child has their PE kit in school so that they can fully take part in these lessons.
