Hello Class 3


I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas break and thank you again for all of my lovely cards and gifts.


We have lots to look forward to this term. In English, we will be reading 'Stone Age Boy' and in History we will be learning all about the Stone Age and Neolithic peoples. In Maths, we will continue to work on multiplication and division, and then we will be moving onto money. In Science, we will be learning all about rocks. If you would like to look at what we will be learning about in more detail, you will find the knowledge organisers below. You will also find your topic homework for this term.


I am very excited to see you in the morning and hear all about what you have been up to over the Christmas period.


Miss Stubbs



To all parents in Class 3


We wanted to say a huge thank you for all of our Christmas gifts. They were extremely generous and we are all very touched by your kindness. 


We hope you all have a lovely Christmas and a Happy New Year!


From Miss Stubbs, Mrs Murray, Mrs Watson and Miss Powell

Hello Class 3


I hope you have all had a lovely half term and are ready and excited to return to school. We have lots of things to look forward to over the next few weeks! 


In English, we will be reading 'Winter's Child' and at the end of this unit, we will be writing our very own fantasy stories. In geography, our enquiry question is "How do people thrive in a frozen world?" and in science we will be investigating the question "How does your garden grow?". In DT, we will be looking at shell structures and working towards designing, making and evaluating keepsake boxes.


Please find below your knowledge organisers and topic homework for this term.

Hello Class 3!


Welcome back to a brand new school year and your first year in Key Stage 2! I hope you have all had a lovely, relaxing summer and I can't wait to hear all about what you have been up to. This year, we have lots of new and exciting topics in Year 3. Below, I have attached a curriculum map which shows what we will be learning about across the year. You will also find knowledge organisers for our Autumn term topics.

In Class 3, homework will be handed out on a Tuesday and will be due in on the following Monday. Spellings will be sent home every Friday, ready for a spelling test the following Friday.


Please also make sure that you are reading daily at home and record this in your reading diary. These will be checked each week by myself or Mrs Murray on a Friday. It is also important that you are practicing your times tables at home too. By the end of Year 3, you should know your 2, 3, 4, 5, 8, 10 and 50 times tables, so if you can focus on these that would be fantastic. 


This half term, we will have PE on a Monday afternoon, however please make sure that PE kits are in school each day in case we have any timetable changes. I understand that not everybody will bring their PE kit into school on the first day, but if you could please bring it in as soon as possible before Monday 13th September, that would be amazing.


I am very much looking forward to being your class teacher and I know you are all going to work extremely hard and learn lots of new things.


If you have any questions, please just ask and I will be happy to help.


Miss Stubbs
