Here are some fantastic examples of our work from our home learning.



In Maths we have been we have been focusing on number and place value. We have learnt how to represent, partition, estimate, order and compare numbers to 1000


In Year 3, we are all have a strong passion for reading. Reading is an essential skill. It supports children to enhance their imagination and creativity as well as supporting the development of key spelling and communication skills. Therefore,  It is an essential part of our curriculum and we prioritise time for children to read daily. They have exposure to high quality texts throughout the year. See below for some books that we will be encountering in Year 3: 

So far, we have already read two fantastic books called 'Dear Earth' and 'Stone Age Boy'. 

This half term we will be reading 'The Great Cave by Terry Deary'. During our reading lessons (Destination Reader), the children will practice a range of key skills including: prediction, inference, summarising, questioning, clarifying, making links and evaluating. Throughout our destination reader sessions, we encourage supportive partner talk and appropriate learning behaviours to ensure children are motivated to learn and share their ideas within a classroom environment which promotes mutual respect. Linked below is the learning behaviours bookmark, that the children use at school daily. We highly recommend using this to guide your conversations about what your child is reading.


Year 3 have been working very hard and have had a brilliant start to the year. They planned and produced a persuasive poster on how to save the earth and have also written a letter to Amelia encouraging her to make changes around the school to help save the oceans. The children proofread and edited their writing to improve and ensure that they include features such as: expanded noun phrases, rhetorical questions and prepositions to add detail to their letters. See below for some fantastic examples of our writing!
