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.

Class 3 Topic Journeys Overview

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 in the unpredictable months of the year in terms of the weather, please make sure your child is 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.



This half term, the children will be working on fractions. They will be describing unit fractions in context and exploring finding a fraction of an amount. They will focus on non-unit
fractions and consolidate their understanding of the language of numerator and denominator. They find fractions of quantities
in context using a variety of representations, including the use of a bar model. Comparing and identifying equivalent fractions will be a focus in the topic and then we will conclude by adding and subtracting fractions with the same denominator.

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.

Bedrock Learning:

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.

As a school we have recently bought into Collins Ebooks. These provide an online library of books which teachers can allocate linked to children’s growing Phonics knowledge, are age appropriate and are ideal in the current climate when children are unable to access reading books in school.

To access the books please follow the link below. Your child’s user name is UKHOLY followed by your child’s first and last name e.g. UKHOLYVickySonko, their password is Reading1

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?


For more information about each topic and activities that you can do at home, look at the parents letter for this term.
