Welcome to Year 3
Welcome to our Year 3 Class Page
Year 3 is such an exciting school year and I am very proud to be the Year 3 class teacher.
Most of you know me well, I am Mrs Dunn, the Deputy Headteacher here at English Martyrs. I will be teaching in Year 3 with support from Mrs Mills - Knott.
In school, my favourite things are doing assemblies, teaching English and History and enjoying events like reading breakfasts and school trips. There will be lots of all these things coming up in Year 3!
Outside of school, my favourite things are spending time with my two sons at home or when we go on days out, camping, reading books and going to watch a show.
In Year 3, we will be learning about different English texts and developing writing by using paragraphs, a variety of sentence structures and writing for different purposes such as reports, stories, recounts and information texts.
Maths will be initially covering 3 digit numbers up to 1000 and then beyond using 4 digit numbers. Times tables and division facts for the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 times tables will be covered in Year 3 and we really hope you can practice these as much as possible at home.
Our History and Geography topics will be the local area of Urmston, including Fieldwork and mapping skills, Early Civilisations including the Stone and Bronze ages. There will be an Ancient Egypt study in the Summer term.
We will be learning Spanish this year, with a focus on colours, numbers and greetings. We will be lucky enough to work with a Spanish Foreign Language Assistant who will be coming into school most weeks to work with the children, to help develop their love of languages.
