Year 3

Hello and welcome to our new Year 3 classes!


In Year 3 we are: Poplar class with Miss O’Malley (LKS2 Phase Leader) and Laurel class with Miss Kirton.  We are helped by Miss Elboushi, Miss Glynn and Mrs Iqeel, and we are all 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.


There is a KS2 Homework club held every Wednesday lunch time with Mrs Callaghan.

Dates for Your Diary

Here are some of the ways you can help your child at home:


• Read with your child every day and make sure their diary is signed by an adult at least three times a week.

•Ensure homework is completed and handed in on a Wednesday.  

•Practise times tables with your children at home, using the grid at the back of your child’s homework book

•Apply a variety of methods to help your child learn their weekly spellings using the list of activities stuck at the back of their Homework Book

•Ensure your child has the correct school uniform and PE Kit, with appropriate school shoes and trainers for PE.  


IIf you have any questions please speak to Miss O’Malley or Miss Kirton on the playground at the end of the day, or get in touch with the school office to arrange an appointment.


We are so excited for our first term with our new Year 3 classes.
