Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


Mrs Snow and Miss Brooks welcome you to year 3. Our teaching and learning assistants are Mrs Jones and Miss Webster in 3E and Ms Webber in 3F.

Well done to our year 3 handwriting competition winners!

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

  • Autumn 1 and Autumn 2: The Savage Stone Age

  • Spring 1 and Spring 2: Romans on the Rampage

  • Summer 1: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

  • 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 Thursday mornings, we attend swimming lessons at Heanor Leisure Centre and on Wednesday afternoons throughout the year, we will be learning to play the ukulele with music teachers from the Schools Music Partnership.
