Year 3

Welcome to Year 3

Teachers: Miss R Hodby and Miss L Langston

Hello everyone! A warm welcome to our Year Three class page. We are looking forward to an exciting year of fun and new learning. Please revisit this page to find weekly updates, useful websites and to explore what we have been learning about in class. Our Autumn 1 topic is all about the United Kingdom where we will go on a journey to understand and explore the landscape and surrounding seas of the UK. We can't wait to see the progress and achievements each individual makes in Year Three.  

Art- Using clay to make UK landmarks

Still image for this video
Year Three have been using clay to create UK landmarks in art. In groups, we rolled, flattened and manipulated the clay to create the famous landmarks The Angel of the North and Stone Henge. After each person made one part of the landmark, the group then added the different parts all together to make one larger landmark. Here are our final UK landmark creations!

Year 3 love using the library!

Welcome to our immersive classroom!

Year 3 told stories through music

Year 3 started by closing their eyes and listening to a piece of music called 'Night on the bare mountain' by Mussorgsky. Afterwards we discussed what sort of story could go with this music. We mapped out three musical sections and wrote down what would happen in each part of the story linking to the music. Finally, in pairs the children acted out their story alongside the music.

Important Information:


Homework- Homework will be given out each Friday and is due in the following Friday. Homework will usually consist of spellings, timetables practice, and either a SPaG , reading comprehension or a Maths worksheet.


PE- PE is on a Tuesday. All children must have the correct school PE kit of white t-shirt and black shorts. (Track suits may be worn as the weather turns colder). Please ensure that all children have trainers to enable them to fully participate. 


Reading- Children will have the opportunity to take a school reading book home and also have access to reading for pleasure books both in the classroom and in the school library. We challenge each child to aim to read their school book at home every evening. Please bring your book to school daily, along with your signed reading record (by an adult), to show you have read at home. 


If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to contact us at school or arrange a meeting,

Thank you 


Miss Hodby and Miss Langston
