Welcome to Year Three!

In Year Three Mr Atkinson teaches us on Monday mornings, Tuesdays Wednesdays and Thursdays. On Monday afternoon Miss Green teaches us, and every Friday Mrs Heathfield is our teacher. Our assistant teacher is Mrs O’Grady.

The Patron Saint of our class is Saint David or Dewi Sant. We celebrate our Saint’s day on March 1st.

Letters & Homework


R.E. is our most important subject and is at the core of our curriculum. We do 2 hours of R.E. every week, a child led liturgy every week and four other sessions of collective worship including Mass or celebration every Thursday. Please look at the R.E. dates to see the dates of Mass and celebrations for the term.

Physical Education

We have 2 PE sessions every week, on Wednesday and Fridays. Please make sure your child wears the correct PE uniform to school. They will need trainers, blue or black shorts and a T-shirt. We aim to have our PE lessons outside as much as possible, weather permitting, so during the colder months your child may need tracksuit bottoms and a long sleeved top.


We learn all about place value, addition and subtraction and multiplication and division. The children learn both mental and written methods to work out the answers. We practice our times tables and this term we learn 3’s and 4’s and revision of 5’s and 10’s. There will be opportunities for us to explore new mathematical concepts. We will also be applying our skills by solving a range of reasoning and problem solving tasks.


Each term we prepare at least 4 pieces of assessed writing. These are a mixture of fiction and non-fiction such as stories, letters, reports and many more. The children have regular grammar lessons, handwriting sessions and a weekly spelling test, which takes place every Friday morning.

The children have a reading record and we ask them and parents to sign it so that we can monitor their reading. In addition, we have Guided Reading in smaller groups every week and those children who require extra support have extra sessions.

Our writing includes: a seasonal setting description, a newspaper report, a conversation between two people, creative writing and a non-chronological report. We also look at and study poetry.


Each half term your child will receive a Homework letter with details of extra activities and projects to further their learning. We also expect the children to read to an adult every night and practise their times tables.
