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 the Church. The children will learn about the elements of sacramental celebrations (e.g. blessing, exchanging greetings and praise) as well as signs and symbols and how important they are in the liturgy. After half term, we will start our new unit called From Advent to Christmas.



We started this term with a story called Into the Forest This text has been the basis for different types of writing such as descriptions, correspondence and playscripts. We are looking forward to our theatre visit in November to watch an adaptation of David Walliams bestseller “Awful Auntie” which is our class book.



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 Animals Including Humans which will include nutrition and the composition of human and animal bodies.




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 Thursday and Friday and must be completed and returned on a Monday, apart from Spelling homework which should be returned on Fridays in time for the weekly spelling test. 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.
  • 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.



As Headteacher and on behalf of all the members of St Michael & St Martin School community, I would like to welcome you to our school website. Within our school, we seek to create a supportive and friendly environment, where each child has the opportunity to develop spiritually, intellectually and socially.
