Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

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

Year 3 are beginning the year by looking at one of their 3 Amazing Authors. This theme will be split throughout the year and we are starting with the fantastic Roald Dahl. As we move into October we will begin our first main topic of the year 'Ancient Egypt'. Expect amazing stories to be told, acted out and enjoyed by everyone involved.


The stories of Roald Dahl will be the main focus in English during September where we look at book reviews and character descriptions using texts such as 'The Twits', 'Esio Trot' and 'Fantastic Mr Fox'.


Year 3 begins with a focus on the number system and place value. We consolidate children's understanding of number and move on to mental addition and subtraction skills.
