Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Your teachers in Year 3 are Miss MacPherson and Mr Smith, supported by Miss Hallam and Miss Harper.

Welcome back to school Y3 and a happy new year to you all! This half term sees the start of our theme, 'Who You Gonna Call?' all about the emergency services and people who can help us. Get ready for visitors, dramatic events and information that you'll remember for the rest of your lives!


Look forward to writing newspaper reports, interviewing a range of people, writing fantastic stories about the emergency services and creating information booklets for your classmates to read.


This term starts with us mastering our multiplication and division unit of work. We then jump back into measuring and tackle how to tell the time before tackling fractions which can be a lot of fun!
