Thomas Willingale School and Nursery

Year 3

Welcome to Year 3


We currently have two classes in Year Three;


Holly Class led by Mrs Patel and Maple Class led by Ms Clive


This year, we will be covering a range of subjects from across the curriculum in a fun and interactive way. Some of our learning will be accessed through our themes.


Year Three is the first year of Key Stage Two. During this year, pupils will be consolidating their learning from Key Stage One, as well as developing new skills.



Each week, we shall try to update you with what has been happening during our learning in Year 3 and suggest activities that you can try at home to further your learning.  

We hope you enjoy reading our page!








It's been a busy week in Year 3, this week we looked at 'tricking the monster stories'. We read Hansel and Gretel, using a story map to help us remember the tricky words. Then we planned, wrote and published our own stories. We had evil caretakers, teachers, scientists and aliens as the main characters! Miss Clive and Mrs Patel were very impressed and loved reading them.  We have been really trying hard with our presentation and handwriting, awarding some children with their pen licence. 




In maths, we have been using formal written methods for addition and subtraction, estimating answers and using the inverse to check our answers. It has been a busy week of learning, but all the children are participating with enthusiasm and with a great attitude. Well done Year 3.  We have some fabulous mathematicians and beautiful presentation in our books.




Let's talk rocks ! This week we started our new topic, Rocks and Soils. We already know lots of new vocabulary and will be building our knowledge over the coming weeks.  




In PE, some of our PE lessons are dance based this term. We are focusing on African dance, and using the beats within traditional music to create our own performances. Even when the tempo increases, we were still able to stay in time.


Thank you for your ongoing support with reading at home (so important!) and encouraging the children to complete their homework.
