The children have been learning how we can link and share information using different devices.  We tracked how information travels around our school network by looking at the switchboard and the server.


The children have been learning to use a Bible.  They were looking for our school values within different books of the Bible.  We found it quite difficult but we will persevere.


The children enjoyed reading looking at our new book ‘Flotsam’.

Flotsam: 1 : Wiesner, David: Books

The children used their detective skills to infer who the belongings washed up on the beach might belong to.

The children inferred the following:

Tray 1 – a fisherman

Tray 2 – a teacher

Tray 3 – a pirate

Tray 4 – a scientist or an explorer

Tray 5 – a sunbather (child)

Week 1

We have had a great first week in year 3!

We have been reading the book ‘The Dot’.  The children explored the idea of perseverance and simply ‘having a go’. The Dot: 9780763619619: Peter H Reynolds: Libros

We looked at the idea of starting ‘somewhere’ by making a mark (a dot) and seeing where it would take us.  Here are some of our pictures:

The children also produced some writing from a given starting point.

All of the children have been working collaboratively to produce a piece of artwork based on ‘The Dot’.  We can’t wait to see the finished result.

As a class, we created a ‘class charter’ and set out our expectations for the year ahead.  We also looked at our school value of ‘community’.  The children created jigsaw puzzle pieces to show that we are all unique but fit together perfectly.


The children explored how to provide constructive feedback and how to act upon it.  This is a skill that we hope we will continue to develop this year.


Welcome to Year 3

Hello and welcome to Year 3!

You’ll find below our learning overview for term 1 across all of our subjects, along with our KIRFs (Key Instant Recall Facts) for maths for this term (number bonds to 20). We are looking forward to an exciting term of learning, which we will share both here and on ClassDojo.

Useful Information

PE this year is split across 2 different days – Mondays and Fridays.

PE kit for all children: Navy Shorts and white T-shirt, plimsolls/ trainers. A navy-blue tracksuit for colder weather – further details can be found on the school website by following this link – School Uniform

The classrooms can be very warm with everyone busy learning, so please ensure your child has a clearly labelled water bottle with them in school each day to keep them hydrated and able to learn.

As a reminder, the school day starts at 8.30 am and ends at 3.15 pm.  Please aim to arrive at school at 8.30am, as important Start Of Day Activities (SODA) take place during the time before worship and we would like all children to benefit from the maximum amount of learning time.


We are really looking forward to getting started and getting to know you all over the next few weeks.  If you have any queries, please direct them to your class teacher in the first instance.
