What do I need to bring to school? 

You might be wondering what you need to bring with you to school, so we have put together a list of things below to help you!

Learning in Year 3

In English, we will read a range of text including poems, newspaper articles, reports, adventure stories, Roman myths and instructions. We will then practise creating our own versions of different texts and share with each other. We will practise new spellings each week which are taken from the 'Year 3 and 4 statutory spelling list' as well as developing our grammar and reading skills. 

In Maths, we will be developing many skills including adding, subtracting, multiplying and dividing. We will be focusing on numbers up to 1,000 and solving number problems and practical problems involving 3 and 4 digit numbers. 

In Science,  we learn about how to keep ourselves healthy in the 'Animals Including Humans' unit, we explore which materials are magnetic in the 'Forces' unit, we learn about how to protect our eyes from the sun in the 'Light' unit, we discover how dinosaur fossils are formed in the 'Rocks' unit and we grow our own flowers in the 'Plants' unit.

Our learning in RE focuses on preparing for First Holy Communion and developing our relationship with God through prayer. 

The topics we will be learning about this year are 'The Ancient Egyptians', 'The Roman invaders' and 'North America'.  

Important days

PE takes place on Mondays and Thursdays. Please make sure you come to school wearing the correct PE kit on these days:

- Navy or black shorts or jogging bottoms (dependent on weather)

- A plain white t-shirt

- Trainers 

- School jumper or cardigan



 Homework will be set on Fridays and should be completed by the following Friday. You will find the homework on the class page of the school website, in the Class D section. This will be updated each week so please make sure you check this regularly. 


 It is important that you read every evening at home. Reading is a skill we use all day, every day so it is very important that you practise this to help you improve. Please make sure your reading diary is signed every day after you have read at home and bring it into school every day so that we can also sign it each time we hear you read.
