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 where we will explore the key features of the Bronze and Iron Ages and come to conclusions about the developments within the periods. We will make linked with the Stone Age period which we have studied in the Autumn term. Within the topic, we will also investigate archaeological evidence with a focus on the Amesbury Archer, The Lindow Man, Roman written accounts of the Celts and reconstruction drawings of both periods.

Wow! Then there is English, Maths and RE!

Once we are back, in English we will look at several folk stories. We will look at folk stories from other cultures such as the Magic Paintbrush and we will use this to inspire us to write our own folk story.

In Maths, we will continue to revise and know our multiplication and division facts for 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables. We will also learn about money, statistics, length, and fractions.

We will also be studying Animals and including humans and we will look at naming the bones in the body and look at the function of the skeleton and the muscles. We will also consider how diet and exercise impacts the human body.

During our RE lessons, we will explore the theme of the Local Church. We will focus on the people of God, gathered in Christ, united in the journey of faith, in care for one another, in sharing their story and celebration.


Year 3 will have their PE lesson on 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


English and Maths homework will be assigned Friday and should be completed by Monday. Children can complete their homework online through Seesaw or on the paper. 

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. Reading books must be brought into school each day. It is expected that children in Key Stage 2 read for at least 20 minutes each night.
