Year 3

Welcome to Year 3 2019-2020!

We are very excited to welcome you to our Year 3 webpage.

The children have settled into the new term brilliantly, and they join us in looking forward to a very exciting year ahead.

For this year, we will be covering all their times tables up to 12, which will enable them to apply these to worded problems in the future.

We are aiming towards gaining our pen licenses by ensuring our handwriting is presentable and formed correctly, with joined letters.


We will be sharing any information or photos about events happening in year 3 over the year, so please check regularly for any updates.

29.4 Year 3 have been looking at the book "The Train to Impossible Places" by P.G.Bell. Here are their character interpretations of Fletch, there are definitely some similarities between them all, but also each picture has its own unique twist!

1.4 Ever wondered which games are popular with year3? Well they have written their own review on their favourite game, has it inspired you to play their recommended game?

27.3 Year 3's home made Roman Mosaic Art!

24.3.20 Year 3 have been researching the role Boudicca had in the revolt against the romans. These are some examples of a persuasive letter from Boudicca encouraging others to join her!

7.2.20 The children researched, designed and produced their own roman clay pots.

3.2.20 We had a teacher from Monks Walk School visit to practice the children's curling skills ahead of an upcoming competition!

10.1.20 To celebrate Welwyn's centenary, the children made their own chinese lanterns ready for the parade.

19.11.19 Visit to Campus West Library

Year 3 enjoyed an afternoon visiting our local library. They were given a quiz to find out where to find different books located throughout the library, which they then had to find in teams. After, the children were given an opportunity to explore archived toys and even saw old photos of a very familiar building! (see picture below)

Can you guess which building the pictures are showing? Can you spot any similarities or differences between then and now?

19.11.19 Class trip to Campus West Library

23.10.19 Practicing throwing, catching, dodging and intercepting skills during outdoor P.E

17.10.10 When the weather fails, we still find creative ways to still fit in P.E!

What a fantastic start we have had to the Autumn term so far! We are all looking forward to the exciting year ahead.

Here you will find 30 independent, confident learners who enjoy their learning in a variety of different ways to achieve the Year 3 expectation across the curriculum. We strive to achieve a pen license by accurately joining and using neat, legible handwriting. We know that times tables are a key part of our education which lay the foundations for all Maths learning and therefore we practice them up to 12x12 regularly.  Our new behaviour system, celebrating me targets and 5 point scale help us to understand our emotions and how this affects our learning in order to self regulate. We choose our own learning partners to increase our independence and share our learning with others.

Please check here regularly for updates and photos of our learning throughout the year.

The children have settled in well and have been enjoying their English lesson focusing on Fables. A particular fable we have been looking at is 'War and Peas' by Michael Forman. This type of fable is written in a slightly different way however it shares a strong moral which we have discussed further in our PSHE lessons. :)
