This Week in Year 3

Hello all – this week in Year 3 we are continuing to develop our persuasive skills so that we can ask Mr. Cunningham to buy us a class pet! When we complete the work we will display it in class and take photos for you to read them here! Wish us luck we have a year group of animal lovers!

In maths we have been learning how to add vertically which is a new skill as up until the end of year 2 children used number lines to add and so concentrated on horizontal addition. We move to subtraction next week.

This week the children have brought home Sumdog maths learning passwords. Please try to log on and have a look around. It is an amaziong resource which supports children’s current learning in maths and gives an assessment for teachers to see how children are achieving.

Have a great weekend!

This Week in Year 3!

Hello all – busy as ever in year 3!

We are continuing our work on The Woolly Mammoth and have been trying to develop our use of persuasive language so that we can convince Mr. Cunningham to buy us a class pet!!

In maths we have been using dienes to help secure our place value knowledge. Here is a photo of Arabella working through some rather challenging problems!


We are in the process of setting up Bug Club and Abacus on line learning. Your children should be bringing their passwords home today or early next week. There is place value work available for every child and reading books according to the colour band your child is currently reading. If there are any problems please let us know!

Have a fabulous weekend,

The Year 3 Team
