Hello and Welcome to Year 3!

Year 3 is the first year of the juniors at St Chad’s RC Primary School and is an exciting big step up for the children!

Our first term has been fantastic and the children have great attitudes towards learning.

In our next term we travel back in time to the Stone Age and explore what it may have been like to live in those times. We explore the Palaeolithic Period, the Mesolithic Period and the Neolithic Period.

Wow! Then there is English and Maths!

Once we are back, in English we will look at how to  write our own narrative story based on ‘Stone Age Boy’ and an adcenture story based on 'La Luna'.

In Maths, we will learn to add and subtract 2, 3 digit numbers and begin to multiply and divide.

We will also be studying Rocks and Soils in our Science lessons and find out about rocks that are natural and rocks that are man made.

 During our RE lessons we will find out about what it means to make a promise, the different types of promises that we can make and the Sacrament of Baptisim. We will also prepare for the Season of Advent.


Year 3 will have their PE lessons on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Please ensure that your child comes to school wearing their PE kit.

The School PE kit consists of a plain white t-shirt, a pair of black shorts/black joggers and a pair of trainers/pumps


Each half term, a topic grid will be given to your child with lots of tasks that are linked to our learning in class for them to complete during the term.

English or Maths will be given out weekly, therefore Homework books need to be brought in each Monday and they will be given back out each Friday.


Spellings will be given out every Wednesday and children will be tested on a Monday.

Reading Books:

Your child has been provided an appropriate reading book based on the Accelerated Reader assessment. Please read and sign your child's reading record when they have read the book and send it back to school so that they can take the Accelerated Reader quiz linked to the book. Then they will be given a new book.
