Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Your teachers in Year 3 are Mrs Proffitt and Mr Baillie, supported by Mrs Hardy, Miss Harper, Mrs Etches and Mrs Gilman. 

 Our amazing themes are Ancient Egypt, Rescue, Amazing Authors and The Stone Age. We look forward to bringing these to life in the classroom.  


During Year 3, we will be looking closely at creating our own non- fiction book, writing letters and diary entries. We will also be developing our imaginative story writing and even producing newspaper articles about our school!  We read a lot of fiction and non- fiction books and enjoy a range of class novels. 


Starting with place value and addition, we'll work through Maths skills and become reasoning and problem solving experts. We will also learn about multiplication and division aswell as fractions, shape and money. We will build up our times tables knowledge and solve tricky problems together.


We will cover the following : 



Animals (including humans)

Forces and Magnets


We will carry out a range of investigations and experiments to explore these areas using different equipment and materials. 


Our first theme will be brought to life by an exciting visit from 'The History Van', learn more about Rescue with a 'hands on' experience by Mountain rescue and finally immerse yourself in Stone Age life by visiting Creswell Crags.
