Welcome to the Year 3 Page :)
This is where you'll find out all about the learning in Year 3. The teachers in Year 3 are Mr Hughes, Mrs Bentley and Mrs Lamb. We are supported by Mrs Hall.
Our Spring term 2 topic is based upon Natural Disasters. We will be looking at significant historical events in relation to these, as well as describing and understanding earthquakes and volcanoes. Within science we will be learning about Rocks and Soils.
Literacy will be non-fiction based writing non-chronological reports and newspaper reports linked to our topic.
We are aiming to ensure of a love of reading for all children at Three Peaks.
Please ensure that your child reads everyday and that their reading record is signed. Rewards available for 5 signatures per week, plus bookmarks for 30 or 50 signatures.
The library is also running a competition and now has new opening times so please take advantage of this too.
We will continue our journey on the RWI spelling programme that leads on from their Year 2 learning
Within maths this half term we will be focusing on all things to do with multiplication and division, money and statistics, plus length and perimeter. We are continuing to use the 99 club to ensure the children are fluent in their times tables.

Maths Rockx Times Table Songs - as a year group we are now learning our times tables through this app in the classroom and the children are really enjoying it.
