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 welcome to the junior building. This half term starts with a party! A party to celebrate what would have been Roald Dahl's  102nd birthday as he is our first Amazing Author. We then move into our Ancient Egypt topic and look at what life was like 5000 years ago!


Look forward to reading many of Roald Dahl's amazing stories, writing a biography for the man himself and moving on to producing non-fiction booklets about Ancient Egypt.


Our year starts with us learning our number basics such as place value, writing and ordering 3 and 4 digit numbers. We then move on to addition and subtraction using the column method. As Christmas approaches we begin our work on multiplication and division so get practising your times tables.
