Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Hi and welcome to the Year 3 web page. Our teacher is Mr Lewis -Walton and we are supported by Mrs Downs. We are a happy and caring class who really enjoy learning new things and sharing our knowledge and skills with our family and friends!

Our Topics

Autumn Term - Extreme Earth


Spring Term - Stone Age


Summer Term - Egyptians





In Year 3, children are encouraged to read at least three times a week at home.  They follow the school reading scheme and once they have finished their reading book, they can independently change their books.  Every afternoon, every child, in a small group,  has a reciprocal reading session to assess their comprehension skills.



Spellings are given out on a Monday and children are tested on Friday.



Homework is sent out on a Friday and needs to be returned to the class by the Wednesday.  



If your child needs any medication must be presented to school accompanied by a letter signed by parent/guardian.







Please feel free to follow the class on twitter @Y3Redgate.  Mr Lewis-Walton tries to tweet at least once a week with pictures of the children's learning.



We have two sessions of PE each week and children are required to wear PE kit of black shorts, Redgate PE blue top and black pumps.  Year 3 go swimming all year on a Friday and they will need swimming trunks/costume and swimming hat.
