Moving Forward, Aiming High!


Welcome to 3M!


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, multiplication tasks 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 morning before school.

From the Stone Age to the Iron Age.


We jumped straight to it in our first week of being Year 3. Exploring through art, we created our own cave paintings from the Stone Age. We discussed how they would have painted during the Stone Age and what their stories could have meant. The children really enjoyed creating their own story through art!

The children really enjoyed their first lesson on Rocks. We were exploring them for their properties, asking questions and thinking about where they might have come from!
