Year 3

Hello and welcome to our new Year 3 classes!


In Year 3 we have Laurel class with Miss Hails and Poplar class with Miss Rees. We are helped by Miss Glynn and Mrs Pratt. Miss Hails and Miss Rees are delighted to be teaching your children this year and are very excited about all the new things we will be learning about.


Our image for this term is Marble bust of the Emperor Hadrian wearing military dress, and our topic will be the Romans which will have us learning about Roman Britain and the legacy the Romans left behind.

We have very high expectations of the children and look forward to getting to know them more. As a team, we are all dedicated to ensuring every child has the opportunity to make the progress that they are capable of.


At this stage of the year, the children will be working on their times tables (particularly the 3, 4 and 8 times tables), and their written methods for multiplication and division in maths. In English the children will be writing at a range of narratives, and non-fiction reports.


We are so excited for this next term with our year 3 classes!
