Year 3

Please read the Year 3 Newsletter to find out everything your child will be learning this term. 

Here are a few of the exciting things that Year 3 have been doing this year...


Roald Dahl Day 

The children dressed up to celebrate their favourite characters and how his many books continue to encourage an early love of reading.

Reading for Purpose

A few photos of our children enjoying their reading lessons. Here they are reading for purpose and finding synonyms for given words.

Autumn Watch

Year 3 went on a trip to Grinlow Woods as part of their topic ‘Autumn Watch’. They identified trees by looking at leaves, looked at the different fruits from the trees, searched for insects and listened and identified all the different sounds they heard.


Members of St Peter's congregation came into school and shared the meaning of a Christingle orange which is used during advent and then helped the children in making their very own Christingle orange.

Egyptian Topic Afternoon

Year 3 hosted an Egyptian event to showcase their topic work. It was great to see so many families attending to find out and take part in their child's learning.

Pooles Cavern Trip

Year 3 went on a trip to Pooles Cavern to find out about it's history and what rock formations it contained. This linked in with their Early Britain topic.
