Year 3 - Adventurers (Mrs Downing) and Explorers (Mrs Pritchard)

Welcome to year 3!


This year our team comprises of Mrs Pritchard, Mrs Downing, Miss Thompson, Mrs Marriott, Mr Wilkinson and Mrs Martin.


Our P.E. days are Tuesday and Wednesday but we ask that children have their P.E. kits in school Monday to Friday. The children are making great progress with their dancing this term!

After our Autumn Term project as historians, we are now becoming scientists as we look at magnetism, forces, nutrition and humans. Our Science work is integral to our project as we need to create amazing, strong and unique superheroes for our iMovie trailers. Our key person is none other than Stan Lee, the co-creator of Marvel comics. We will also be studying the history of super heroes and their rise in popularity.

The children have been given their new homework menus with a huge range of exciting activities designed to encourage families to get creative together. Homework tasks can be taken from the menu and completed at any point during the week. The suggestion is for one piece of homework to be completed per week but we encourage children to have a go at whichever tasks they choose. We’ve already had lots of fantastic homework in, including shields and posters! Dojo points will be awarded for every piece of homework that is completed.


As well as the homework tasks, we are still expecting children to be reading at home, practising their times tables and spellings. Dojo points will be awarded to those children who complete these activities.


And finally, the Year 3 children are making great progress with their Reading Challenge books. We’ve had 30 bronze awards and 1 silver, so far! Great work parents: keep reading with the children.
