Miss Steele

Miss Steele

is the Year 3 teacher.

Mrs Redfearn

In the Summer term, we will be reading 'Egyptology' to inspire our writing. We will be working towards the following writing outcomes:

  • An Egyptian mystery 
  • A secret diary

We will continue to practise and apply the following grammar and punctuation: 

  • inverted commas for direct speech
  • adverbs of time, place and cause
  • prepositions of time, place and cause
  • a range of prefixes
  • word families

We will use a variety of strategies and games to learn the year 3 spelling rules and every week there will be a test on the week's words. You will see the weekly sets of words attached below.



In the Summer term, we will continue to develop our decoding and comprehension skills. We will be focusing particularly on fiction and poetry this term, exploring the below texts. We will explain word meanings in context, retrieve and record information and make justified inferences.

It is also important that you enjoy books at home with your child. As well as listening to your child read, consider the following: 

  • asking them who, what, when, where, why questions;
  • asking them to predict what might happen next;
  • asking them to summarise what has just happened;
  • discussing the meaning of words.

If English is not your first language, please consider reading to your child in your native language and discussing what has been read. 




In our maths lessons, we will develop our knowledge and skills in the following areas:

  • Place value and number;
  • Addition and subtraction;
  • Multiplication and division;
  • Fractions;
  • Measurement;
  • Geometry; and
  • Statistics. 

We will have lessons focused on learning arithmetic strategies as well as developing our problem-solving and reasoning skills.

In addition to this, we will be placing a lot of focus on learning the above times tables. It is important that children have opportunities, both in and out of school, to practise their times tables in anticipation of the statutory times tables check in Year 4. There are lots of fun games that children can play to learn times tables, a selection of which can be found at https://www.timestables.co.uk/




In science, we will be exploring movement by learning about forces and magnets. We will continue to learn through lots of hands-on, scientific enquiry.

In RE, we will reflect upon the following questions through the study of Hinduism and Global Christianity:

How do Hindus describe God?

What does it mean if God is holy and loving?



The Ancient Egyptians

In history, we will be immersing ourselves in the lives of the Ancient Egyptians. We will be exploring all things mummification, hierogyphics and pyramids!

In art, we will be applying this knowledge to create tomb artwork, using oil pastels. 

In D&T, we will plan, produce and evaluate our very own Ancient Egyptian-style cart.

In geography, we will be staying in Africa but moving south as we zoom in on Kenya and compare it to the UK. 



Year 3 will have P.E every Wednesday and alternate Tuesdays. Please refer to the weekly newsletter to see whether Year 3 have P.E this Tuesday. 

P.E lessons are outdoors and children should come in to school in their P.E kit on these days.

P.E Kit:

I am so excited to see the children again and I can't wait to hear all about their Easter break!
