Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

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

The Summer term means one thing...The Stone Age. For the past 2 years the children have loved this topic and we expect that this year will be no different. From learning the facts, to making tools and re-enacting life as a hunter gatherer the children are certain to have fun.


Look forward to debates, drama activities, story writing and much much more!


Shape kicks off the Summer term with a focus on 2D and 3D shapes and their properties. A quick recap of the written methods and the year finishes with a focus on money and measurement ensuring that children learn the skills that they will use for the rest of their lives.
