Year 3 2019 - 2020

Mrs Wharton

Mr Solan

Welcome to Year 3

Mr Solan teaches full time in one year 3 class while in the other class, Mrs Wharton teaches Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday and Mrs Kenyon teaches on Thursday and Friday.  Our teaching assistants are Mrs Macaulay and Mrs Miller. 

Our topic this term is 'The Stone Age to Iron Age'.

Please look at our curriculum pages for details of each subject area.



This term our texts are Stone Age Boy by Satoshi Kitamura and Big Blue Whale by Nicola Davies. 

Mrs Wharton's library time is on a Wednesday afternoon. 

Mr Solan's library time is on a Monday afternoon

Each pupil will be able to borrow a library book which will need to be renewed or returned the following week.



This term we will focus on multiplication and division and measurement. 

At home, we would like children to focus on learning their 3, 4 and 8 times tables.  We would encourage them to learn the multiplication and division facts for each table so they will have them at their fingertips! Log on to for lots of fun practice! Can you become a Rock Legend? 


Physical Education 

Each child will need a PE kit which should consist of shorts/jogging bottoms, a t-shirt, trainers for outdoor use and pumps for indoor use.  Due to changes in the timetable, we would kindly ask the PE kit to remain in school from Monday to Friday to ensure it is always available for these sessions. This half term our PE focus is on gymnastics and related skills.

This term is Year 3's turn to go swimming each friday, beginning on Friday 17th January.

Please ensure your child has an appropriate swimming costume, a towel and a warm coat for walking to and from the swimming pool!



Every child is required to spend some time each week on the TT Rockstars.

We put a strong emphasis on reading and pupils are encouraged to read independently, or to an adult who can then sign their reading diary.  If pupils read 5 times in a one week period, they are entered in to our regular readers raffle at the end of the week.  Look out for our regular readers board when you visit the classroom!
