Year 3

Welcome to Mice Class.

Hello and welcome to Mice! 

Our teachers are Ms Calder and our teaching assistants are Mrs Curry and Mr Tomlinson.  Our classroom is bright, well-resourced and learning is always fun!  We have a designated ‘Reading Corner’ and a wonderful outdoor space, which is attached to our classroom.  We use this to extend our learning, particularly in the spring and summer terms. 

We enjoy English and Maths every day.  Most of our subjects are taught through an exciting thematic approach.  This year our topics are: ‘Stone age to Iron age’, ‘Extreme Earth’, ‘Ancient Egyptians’, ‘Wonderous Water’, Ancient Mayans’ and ‘Rainforests’.

Some of our subjects are taught by specialist staff including, Music, French, Art and Design Technology and PE.  We have two weekly PE lessons on Tuesdays and Wednesdays so please make sure the children come to school dressed in their PE kit on these days. 

Our homework consists of weekly spellings, Maths Whizz and TTRockstars (by the end of Year 4 all learners are expected to know their times tables up to 12 x 12).  We are also encouraged to read with an adult at least four times a week at home.  

Below you will find some planning documents so that you can see what we will be taught and our ‘Spelling Booklet’ for the current term so that you can support us at home.
