Welcome to Year 3!

Learning from home


We have put together some links to online resources that can support children learning at home.


Parents- We would ask that Parents consider how to keep children safe when they are online. NSPCC has some fantastic guidance available here:  We would recommend setting parental controls on any devices and keep an eye on your child's history. 


Children- just a reminder if you ever see anything that makes you uncomfortable please speak to an adult. This website is brilliant for learning about how to keep yourself safe - there are even games!

Every child has been given a login for classroom secrets. They will have work set every Monday, Wednesday and Friday sent via Class Dojo.


Reading for pleasure


In order to support your child develop a love of reading we have created lists of suggested high quality texts that are suitable for each year group. We hope these are helpful for you!

Audible stories Audible are now offering children free audio books whilst schools are closed. (hundreds of free books to read on line)


Maths games

A very warm welcome to year 3 from Mrs Adams, Miss Fearn, Mrs Blacknell, Mrs Smith, Miss Wint and Mrs Foster!







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: The Stone Age to the Iron Age, We Are Great Britain and The Romans.


All of our topic work is centred around a book. Our Autumn book is Stig of the Dump. Our Spring book is The Iron Man. Our Summer book is Escape from Pompeii. 


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: Wednesday and Thursday

Class 2: Wednesday and Thursday


Class 2 will be swimming from January until February half term. 

Class 1 will be swimming from February half term until Easter. 


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 daily 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 aim is to have children in school as much as possible. Ideally, we are aiming for at least 97% attendance.


Autumn overall attendance


Class 1: 95.08%

Class 2: 96%


Year 3 Spellings


Spelling tests happen weekly on a Friday morning. Your child will perform their spelling test with their English teacher. Their weekly score is placed in their school diary, along with their new spellings.


Within the week, the children will practise their spelling pattern at least twice a week.


Their spelling list will also be posted onto ClassDojo.



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.



5R'S and SEAL

At Broomhill we have weekly SEAL lessons. SEAL promotes social and emotional literacy and equips children with the skills they need to lead a healthy, happy life.


Our SEAL topic for Spring 1 is 'Getting on and Falling out'


Our 5R topic for this Spring 1 is Relationships.
