Hello Kingfishers and Woodpeckers 

Welcome to the Year 3 class page.  

On this page you will find some websites that we recommend using and photographs of what Year 3 are getting up to.  To find your newest weekly spelling list, please visit classroom.google.com

We will be doing some very exciting learning this year - turning you all into whizzy writers, mathematicians and historians!

Homework will be start to be set in January and will have a grammar focus.


We are busy preparing for Christingle. Now that we've learnt how and why Christians celebrate Christingle, we will be making our own Christingles on Wednesday morning ready for the afternoon. We can't wait to share our beautiful singing with you.

In our Geography, we have learnt to use maps and atlases to find out about the United Kingdom.

We were so busy at the start of Year 3. Look at these pictures to see some of the Maths and Science we have been learning.

We started the year by learning about teeth. Did you know that teeth and eggs are made of the same material? We experimented with what would happen to our teeth if we drank too much of certain liquids. Look what we discovered!
