Year 3

Welcome to Y3

Miss Bonner (Monday-Wednesday) and Mrs Sonko (Thursday-Friday)

Please contact the email above if you have any queries, questions or concerns.

We will always help wherever and whenever possible and will respond to you as soon as we can.

Also, we are on Tapestry, sharing all your child’s learning and any additional home learning. If you need any help logging in or seeing this content, please let us know.

Please check our class page weekly for any updates, dates to remember, home or remote learning topics and activities.


Our whole school theme for this term is ‘Journeys. During the term we will be exploring mining in our locality and the impact it had on where we live as well as across the country. We will be using suitable sources of evidence for historical enquiries and learn about the historical changes focusing on the the concepts of parliament and poverty.


Our PE sessions are on a Monday and Friday afternoon. Please could you ensure that your child comes to school in their PE kit on these days. As we are heading into the winter months, please make sure the children are dressed for both indoor or outdoor PE.

Our Outdoor Education sessions with Mr Parker are on alternate Wednesday mornings.

Again, could you please dress for the weather for Outdoor Education sessions. It is likely that the majority of the session will be outside (unless in very severe weather) so appropriate clothing and footwear – such as wellies or walking shoes/boots – are highly recommended.


Autumn Term


This half term, the children will be applying their understanding of multiplication and division
along with place value to multiply 2-digit numbers and to multiply by 10 and 100. We will be working on the understanding of key concepts such as commutativity and the inverse relationship between division and multiplication.

By the end of this unit the children should by able to:

  • understand and use commutativity and the inverse relationship between
    multiplication and division to derive and calculate associated facts.
  • fluently recall multiplication and division facts from the 3× and 4× tables.
  • begin to apply knowledge of place value to derive further multiplication and division
  • identify how bar models have been used to represent multiplication and division

Please take time to access the Parent Packs to see how you can support your child at home with their learning alongside what we are doing in lessons.

In English, we will be focusing on the text ‘The Iron Man by Ted Hughes’.

Bedrock Learning:

All the children are now able to access their Bedrock account and all log in details have been sent home.


Please continue to read with your child a minimum of 3 times per week. Your child has been sent home with a book from school and any reading that you do or books you share at home together can be recorded on Tapestry.

Try to use these key skills and questions when working together.

Predict – What do they think this text is about?

Clarify – What new vocabulary have they experienced? Meaning?

Question – What would they still like to know?

Summarise – In their words, what is the text about?


In Phonics sessions, we have been revising our Phase 3 and Phase 5 phonemes and applying these in sentences through dictations.
