Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

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

Our second topic this year is Rescue. Learn all about our emergency services, how to contact them in an emergency and get ready for visitors galore! We will also be visiting the National Emergency Services Museum right here in Sheffield where we will get to see how the emergency services have changed over time as well as climbing aboard a real 40ft life boat!


Look forward to writing leaflets about the emergency services, producing newspaper reports and writing stories that have a rescue theme within them.


This theme sees us master multiplication and division before learning how to measure with accuracy and add/subtract amounts of money. Lots of key life skills to be learned within this topic!
