Miss McNicoll and Mr. Tinker


Welcome to Year 3's class page!

We have had a wonderful start to life in the juniors with all children settling in really well and getting used to new routines. All children were eager to share their news of what they had been up to over the summer holidays and were happy to be reunited with their friends in Year 3! We know we are going to have a great year with every child working hard and trying their best!


All important information can be found on this page. Please take a look at the medium term planner which outlines all the exciting learning that will be taking place in Year 3.

Year 3 Parent Curriculum Meeting:



Class Dojo: Children can earn 'dojo points' for any number of positive reasons; such as following the Golden Rules, participating, being on task or working hard.

Star of the day: Each day a child will be chosen for 'star of the day', for working hard that day. Star of the day is worth 5 extra Dojo points!

Star of the week: Each week, 3 children are chosen for 'star of the week' for working hard that week. The award is given in assembly every Friday afternoon.

Fun Friday: On the last Friday of every half term, children will take part in a curriculum enhancement day. Activities such as craft, sport etc will be planned for the children to participate in.

Homework: Homework is handed out every Wednesday and will have an  English and Mathematics focus each week. Please ensure homework is handed in on the following Monday to ensure work can be marked and returned promptly.

Children may also complete the optional 'Pick 'n' Mix' homework tasks and share these achievements during show and tell.  Options will be updates on a half termly basis.

Spellings: Spelling rules and sounds that we are focusing on each half term can be found in your child's homework book. We will have Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar lessons during the week that will focus on new sounds and also spelling words from the Year 3 and 4 Statutory Word List. 

Reading: It is really important, children in Year 3 read on a daily basis to improve fluency and also build reading stamina. Daily reading will support children in reaching the year group expectations. It is also essential that parents listen and question the children to ensure that they are reading with understanding. Below are examples of questions that maybe useful.

Pick 'n' Mix Homework

  • Create a friend for Sophie from the BFG. What qualities would he/she have?
  • Go on a hunt at home to find as many objects as you can with the recycling symbol on them. 
  • Design a poster on how you can make an impact in your environment and encourage other people to live more sustainably.
  • Encourage your family and friends to be environmentally friendly.
  • Practise your 3, 4 and 8 times tables - write them down, play hit the button, create a song/rap etc.
  • Choose your favourite piece of art and explain why you like it. Who is the artist? How does the art work make you feel?

Key Texts

The BFG- Roald Dahl

George's Marvellous Medicine- Roald Dahl

Reading Focuses

Children will be asked a range of questions during guided reading which focus on:

  • giving/explaining the meaning of words in context
  • retrieving and recording information
  • summarising main ideas from more than one paragraph
  • making inferences from the text using evidence from the text
  • predicting what might happen from details stated and implied
  • make comparisons within the text
