Year 3

Welcome to Year Three!

This is the Year Three section to our website! Here you will find lots of important information about what's going on in Year Three this term. We will also be posting some of our awesome work as well as photos of the fun activities and school trips we've been on.


Meet the Year 3 team!

The three class teachers are Mrs Jones, Mr Rees and Miss Neale. We also have Miss Williams and Mrs Hall, and Mrs Miah as part of our team.


Our topics for the Autumn term

Our topic for the Autumn Term is Journeys. We started the term with an immersion day where we dressed up as a pilot, a chef and an explorer. Everyone had a great time trying lots of different activities. From this the children decided they would like to learn about transport, food, dinosaurs, explorers and many other interesting topics.  ​​​​​

Our Autumn trips

We have visited the church to learn about spiritual journeys from Vicar Alison. We will also be visiting St Fagans National Museum of History to find out about the journey of houses through time.



We understand that trips can be expensive, especially if there are a few children in the family. Please remember we are always here to help - Mrs Lenihan in the office is always happy to set up weekly payment plans to make it easier and discounts for siblings are offered. Trips are a valuable part of your child's education and also extremely enjoyable!

iPad apps

Each Year Three class has 14 class iPads. We use them in all sorts of lessons. The apps that we use in class most often are:


  • Reading Eggs
  • Times Table Rockstars
  • Pages
  • Book Creator
  • Popplet
  • Wordfoto
  • Puppet Pals
  • Maths bingo


Year Three  after-school clubs

The Junior choir is open to all Y3,4,5 and 6 pupils. It takes place with Mrs Jones and Mrs Cosker every Wednesday after school (3.20pm - 4pm). We will be asking you which songs you would like to sing in assembly, and learning them. We are hoping to visit our friends at Farleigh House and the Thomas Evans Complex before Christmas.


Other important information for parents

Spelling words to practise for the weekly spelling quiz are given out on a Friday ready for the spelling quiz the following Wednesday. If help is needed then give Mr Rees, Miss Neale or Mrs Jones a shout! In Year Three we are learning the 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 times tables so any practise with these at home would be great!


Book bags are sent home every Friday and should be brought back into school every Monday.


P.E kit should be brought in for the children to get changed into (a t-shirt, shorts/leggings/tracksuit bottoms and trainers). Earrings need to be removed for pupils to be able to participate in the lesson.

P.E for Mr Rees' class is on a Monday.

P.E for Miss Neale's class in on a Tuesday.

P.E for Mrs Jones' class is on a Friday.


Children are given a choice of homework projects they would like to complete each week. Children are to complete 1 a week over the term.
