Welcome to the Year 3 class page


It has been an excellent start to the term so far. The children have settled well into Year 3 and their transition into KS2. Our topics this term are as follows:


Religious Education

Our theme this half term is called ‘Beginning with God’. We are looking at creation stories from different cultures and paying particular attention to the less well known creation story found in Genesis 2. After half term, we will start our new unit called ‘From Advent to Christmas’.



We started this term with poetry by Valerie Bloom. This text will be the basis for different types of writing such as descriptions, correspondence and letters.  In the next few weeks, we will be comparing the life of a Kenyan child with that of a resident of Hounslow as part of Black History week and finishing the half term with instructional texts.



In Maths, we have been concentrating on place value up to 1500 and number bonds up to 100. We have been learning about column methods of addition and subtraction and division and multiplication.  We have been applying our mathematical knowledge through solving word problems based around money, measurement and statistical investigations.


History and Science

In history, we have been learning about the Stone Age and in Science, our topic is Rocks and Fossils which will include the way different rocks and fossils are formed and the properties that they have.



As is the case throughout the school, we expect and encourage all children to adhere to high standards of behaviour both in class and on the playground.

The children in Year 3 have negotiated a set of class rules together and have all agreed to follow these with the understanding that doing so will create a happy learning environment that will help their learning.

Working together with parents and guardians plays a large part in ensuring there are good relationships and standards of behaviour in school.


General Reminders

  • Homework is set every Tuesday and must be completed and returned on a Monday. We really appreciate your support when helping children with homework. The task set is related to what we have covered in class that week and provides a chance for them to consolidate their learning.
  • Spellings are set and tested every Thursday.
  • PE takes place every Wednesday Afternoon. Please ensure that your child has a full PE kit in school on this day. All items of uniform must also be named.
  • Please ensure that your child brings in a named bottle of water every day.
