Welcome to Class 3R

We have all settled into Year 3 very well and we are really excited and enthusiastic about the year ahead!

Our topic this term is Time Travellers. We begin our time travelling journey by travelling back to the Victorian period. We are very excited about learning about the Victorians and how they lived in the Victorian period. We started our topic by finding out what we already know and what we want to find out about the Victorians.

We look forward to working with you

At our school we want to develop and promote ‘a love of reading’.

When sharing a book talk to your child about what he or she thinks might happen next in a story, how the story might end and then ask them to retell the story themselves. Picture books are very important to promote discussion, so look for books without any words to help your child practise this skill. Have fun acting out stories together. Your enthusiasm for a book will help your child to understand that books are exciting. Your child will receive a bookmark with their book and this should target the objectives that your child is working on.

Make reading times fun and relaxed and you will see your child’s confidence grow!


Help your child to practise their spellings. See if they can write them in their cursive handwriting.


Mathematics teaches children how to make sense of the world around them through developing their ability to calculate, reason and solve problems. It enables children to understand relationships and patterns in both number and space, in their daily lives.
