Year 3

Welcome to Year 3:
 Benjamin Zephaniah Class & Miriam Makeba Class


Mr Lawler is teaching Benjamin Zephaniah Class this year and Mrs Borecka is the class teacher in Miriam Makeba Class. 


Welcome to year 3! We hope you find the information below useful. This information will help you support your child at home with the organisation of their week and their learning at home. 

Key Times 


Homework consists of: 

Daily Reading 

Weekly Spellings 

Times table Practise 


In year 3, the PE days are Tuesday and Thursday. Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their PE kit on these days. They are not required to wear their school uniform on these days.  


Due to current circumstances we are limiting trips and external visitors but will work to provide enrichment opportunities. 

Key Times 

For Year 3, the school day will begin at 8:35 am, and end at 3:25 pm. Please stick to these timings as each year group has their own start and end time to ensure social distancing. If your child has a sibling within Kent House, please follow the new collection procedure to avoid bursting bubbles.  



What are we learning? 


For Summer 2 our class book will be The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by CS Lewis. We will tell stories through playscripts, write poetry including limericks, and we will write instructions based around our class book. 


In maths this term we will be exploring length, mass and volume, pattern and relationships, time and problem solving. We will also be continuing to practise our arithmetic and times tables. 


This term we will be exploring forces, including magnetism. We will look at magnetic fields and how magnets work. 


In Summer 2 we are looking at the United Kingdom, and how different parts and regions of the UK vary, and how they have changed over time. 


We are continuing our learning about Ancient Egypt throughout the term, exploring who Tutankhamun was and how people lived during the time. 


In Summer 2 we will be looking at the River Ganges and how it plays an important part for Hindus. 


This term we are learning about graphs. We will be entering data and using graphs to represent information in different ways.

In Sumer 2 our song will be Three Little Birds by Bob Marley. We will explore many aspects of music including rhythm, pitch, tone and some musical annotation. 


How can I help at home? 

One of the key ways every parent can help is to ensure that your child is at school every day and on time. Other than this, the main way you can help is by ensuring that your child reads every day, for at least 25 minutes – this can be with you, or on their own, but it is the most effective way of ensuring that your child progresses and learns outside of school as it will support them with learning spellings and improve their knowledge of reading comprehension.  

Children have logins for Times Tables Rock Stars, and Purple Mash– please encourage them to use this frequently, as it will really help with their quick recall of mathematical facts. Practicing times tables frequently is vital, and children should be confident in their times tables by the end of year 4. 

Please encourage them to read frequently If you have any questions, please talk to Mr Lawler or Mrs Borecka. Alternatively, you may contact us via the school email.
