Daily Essentials.

Times Tables - Please practise your times tables focusing on improving the efficiency of your answers. The aim is for all children in Year 3 to know the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 10 times tables by the end of the year. Suggested websites include Hit the Button and Daily 10 (both found on Top Marks) and Monster Multiplication and Multiplication check (both found on Purple Mash) . We also recommend the apps 1 Minute Maths White Rose and DK Times Tables. We have weekly tests to identify times tables that can be improved with targeted intervention. Children should practise using whichever method works best for them. We also like to sing along to the times table songs on Supermovers the website is below.


Spelling - Please learn your spellings which are tested every three weeks in school.  We will recommend a range of different activities to help with learning spellings but it is important that you find an activity that works for you. Below is a website with some fun activities to practise your Year 3 spellings.


Reading - Please read regularly, both aloud to an adult and to yourself. Please read a range of different styles of texts. Below is a recommeded reading list for Year 3 children. If you finish your school reading book read a book from home, or you could even listen to  an audio book. 


Practise forming your letters correctly and the handwriting joins on the handwiting paper using the handwriting guide in the documents section. 

Burwardsley trip Jan 2024

We had such a lovely day exploring the Stone age, Bronze age and Iron age . 

DT- Healthy Wrap designing and making

As part of our DT unit Year 3  designed and made healthy wraps. They also designed and made the packaging to put them in.  Don't they look fabulous?

Christmas 2023

We really enjoyed our Christmas play and Christmas activities. 

Tennis taster

Year 3 had a lovely time developing their tennis skills with a tennis coach. 

Art- Figure drawing

We worked really hard on our artwork taking inspiration from the artist 'Joan Eardley', whose art captured the figures and characters of street children. We hope you like them.
