Welcome to Year 3


Welcome to Year 3!

Firstly, I would like to welcome you to the Year 3 class web page. Please check this page regularly to keep up with what's been happening in Elm Class. If you need to speak to me regarding your child, please come and find me on the playground at home-time, or contact the school office to arrange a meeting. 



Our current text is Ug – The Boy Genius. We will then be studying ‘Leon and the Place Between’.



Every child is expected to read for 20 minutes every day. Please listen to your child read and discuss the book with them. Ask them about what they have read, e.g. How did the character feel? What do you think will happen next?


Times Tables

We now have a times tables test every week – normally Tuesday. By the end of the academic year, Year 3 children are expected to know their 2, 5, 10, 3, 4, 6 and 8 times tables. Please encourage your child to practise their times tables every day.



Our PE sessions are on Wednesdays and Thursdays. Please ensure your child has a full PE kit – dark shorts, dark jogging bottoms, a Downsview T-shirt and plimsolls.



Our History topic this half term is The StoneAge. During w/b 25.03.19, we will be making Stone Age houses during DT. Please can you encourage your child to collect and bring in small twigs (no longer than 30cm) before this date.
