Moving Forward, Aiming High!


Welcome to Class 3F.

Welcome to Year 3 and Newhall Junior School.  We will be sharing our learning and adventures in school on this page throughout the year so please check back regularly.


This term we will begin by refreshing our memories after the holidays with some of the Year 2 expectations within Maths and English.

In English the children will be:-  

  • focusing upon ensuring they fully understand and use spelling patterns and their phonic knowledge and begin to learn some of the expected Year 3 spellings. (see the link on the Year 3 page for the words children should be able to read and spell by the end of Year 3 & 4)
  • focus upon developing their ability to manipulate language to create 'super' sentences from which they can begin to then further develop with their Year 3 learning.
  • continue to develop their reading fluency and begin to build upon their deeper understanding of what they have read.


In Maths, the children will be introduced to the Singapore approach to teaching which is has a proven success rate.  We will begin this journey by:-

  • ensuring the children's understanding of place value(tens and units)
  • developing mental recall of simple addition and subtraction facts.
  • revising their knowledge of multiplication to rapid recall times tables.


In our theme work this half term the children will be learning the following:-

Science - Rocks and Soils, which will involve the children developing an understanding of the types of rock and soils on our planet and exploring how these are formed.

History - Stone Age to Iron Age, which will involve the children learning about the life within this time period and comparing with their own experiences today.


The children will be provided with a home reading book, weekly spellings and a homework grid from which they can choose their activity to share with the class each week.  


If you are unsure or have any questions please do not hesitate to ask. I am on the playground each mroning before school.


Thanks Mrs Fisher




In Science we have been exploring rocks and composing questions that we would like answered about these. We used the magnifying glasses to take a closer look at a range of different rocks.

English and History

Our History focus this half term is to explore the Stone Age to the Iron Age.  We began this learning with a visit from a Stone Age woman(Maria Whatton - Storyteller) whom the children discovered in the school hall.  They were able to ask her some very though provoking questions to aid their understanding of what life in the Stone Age would have been like.  The children were particularly intrigued that the Stone Age woman did not understand much of the technology and every day language they used.
