Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Respect Relationships Reflective Responsible


A very warm welcome to year 3 from Mr Langford, Mrs Adams, Miss Hall, Mrs Hill, Miss Locke and Mrs Plaskitt.


Children in year 3 and 4 will be taught English and Maths in their year groups.

The year three teachers for English and Maths are Mr Langford and Mrs Adams.


Year 3 is an amazing time for everyone as the journey through KS2 begins and the children really develop their skills for independent learning. Throughout this year the children will be exploring a variety of exciting and engaging cross-curricular topics including: Ancient Egypt, Africa and The Anglo Saxons.


All of the topics have a Creative Homework Project linked to them, which will give the children the opportunity to showcase their talents, strengths and interests. This will be given to children at the start of each half term.


Could we please ask that you ensure PE kits are kept in school all week. Our P.E days are:


Class 1: Monday, Thursday (Swimming) and Friday

Class 2: Monday and Thursday

Class 3: Tuesday and Thursday

Class 4: Tuesday and Thursday

Class 5: Tuesday, Thursday and Friday


Homework expectations:

  • We expect children to read as much as possible. Children in year 3 should be reading daily.
  • By the end of year 3, children should know all their 2,3,4,5,8 and 10 times tables. We recommend that children practise these as much as possible. We test times tables weekly in school... practise makes perfect!
  • Children are given a spelling test weekly, so we expect children to practise their spellings at home. We have one practise session in school to help children with this.
  • At times throughout the year, children may receive additional homework to support their learning in school.



The more children are in school, the more they are learning. Our air is to have children in school as much as possible. Ideally, we are aiming for at least 97% attendance.

Class 1: 90%

Class 2: 98.6%

Class 3: 100%

Class 4: 92.2%

Class Dojo

Support your child with their behaviour at Broomhill Junior School by signing up to Class Dojo.


The staff at Broomhill will use ClassDojo to communicate with you. By using the app, teachers can provide your child with positive points for a variety of reasons. It also allows teachers to instantly share messages, updates and photos from the class.

You will need to receive a code from your class teacher to see all the benefits.



Spellings are tested weekly. To practise your spelling online, see the 'Spellings' link below.
