Year 3 2022 - 2023

Miss Wainwright

How exciting to be starting the Key Stage Two part of your learning journey at St Paul's!

This page contains some of the key information for Autumn Term in Year 3. 

We look forward to growing together as a class and school family. Our teaching assistant is Mrs Wrigley and Mrs Calderbank will be working in our class as a teacher, too. 

Our first topic is going to be Tribal Tales! 

Our History learning will be about changes in Britain from The Stone Age to The Iron Age. 

Our Science learning will be about Rocks. 

In Maths we will learn about Place Value, Addition and Subtraction as well as Multiplication and Division. It would be wonderful to start practicing your times table facts and the related division facts as soon as possible!

We will continue to learn to decode and spell through First Class Phonics lessons which will be really familiar from Year 2! There will be daily guided reading sessions and we encourage you to read at least a couple of pages of your home reading book each evening with your adult at home, please make sure you bring your reading book and reading record into school each day, too. Our class novel this term is The Wild Way Home by Sophie Kirtley.

In English we will be reading the book The Tunnel and generating a variety of written responses to this. Following this fiction unit we will then study a non fiction unit on explanation texts. 

In R.E. our work will focus on The Christian Family and Mary, Our Mother. This is such an exciting year for those of you who will be participating in the Sacramental Programme, as well as your friends in class who will support you along the way.

P.E. days will be Monday and Thursdays.

Homework will be sent out on Friday's and returned on Wednesday the following week to be marked. Homework will consist of spellings, a piece of English or Topic related work. There will be a work to complete on Times Tables Rock Stars as well as a piece of Maths home related to our K.I.R.F. (Key Instant Recall Facts).

There is plenty more information about the curriculum on our year group curriculum page

We are here to support you and your families; I am always available at the end of the day for a quick word or happy to make an appointment for a longer chat at a convenient time.

It is going to be a wonderful year!
