Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to Year 3 page!

Mrs Briggs (Monday – Wednesday) and Mrs Ibrahim (Thursday and Friday)  are the class teachers and we have Miss Craven supporting us throughout the week. Our team are always available to answer any questions so please ask if there is anything you need.

We follow our school motto in everything we do:
“Nothing is impossible with God”

We hope to use this page to share our exciting work and news with you.  We hope that you enjoy watching our journey.

Investigating how magnetic force is affected by different surfaces.

Y3 have been using magnets and investigating how different surfaces affect magnetic force.  We compared desk top, carpet, bin liner, paper and aluminium foil.


Please have a look at our suggested reading lists for children in Year 3. These books are a range of bestselling picture books and longer texts to encourage both shared reading, individual reading and reading for pleasure.


Don’t forget to visit the local library for lots of further engaging texts and reading activities. It is the year of reading so they have lots planned to enjoy!

To all my lovely Year 3 children,

I just want you to know that I am thinking of you a lot and miss you all very much.  Please do not worry during this time.

I want you to keep yourselves busy with some school work that is posted weekly for you on the website but also have lots of time playing. You now also have a chance to spend more quality time with your family. So try to enjoy it all!

Try not to go on your tablets or devices for long periods of time! Also remember what we learned in school about being safe online. You were all great during our Internet safety week!

Don’t forget to say your prayers too!  We will soon be celebrating Easter!

Love to you all,

Mrs Ibrahim

I have been joining in with PE with Joe Wickes in the mornings and I am aching like mad! I tried extra hard today as it should have been our P.E. lesson too.
How about you? Are you managing to do some physical activities? Remember to look at the useful websites for some ideas of what you can do.
I’m sure that you are finding lots of ways to keep busy but don’t forget to look at the work Mrs Ibrahim & I have put onto the Online Learning page.
I’m keeping you and your families in my thoughts and prayers.
Mrs Briggs



Hello Year 3’s!

I feel like I haven’t seen you all in such a long time and I am missing you terribly!
I’m sure ‘no school’ sounded like fun at first but I am sure that many of you are now bored and missing your friends as much as I am.

Please remember to continue with your Bug Club – I know Miss Craven put a few on for you and we will add more soon.
Also make sure that you are using your Times Table Rock Stars accounts. Remember our aim was to know and use fluently x2, x5, x10, x3, x4 and x8 by the end of the year – so keep practising.

Please keep yourselves safe and look after and help your families as much as you can.
God bless
Mrs Briggs
