Year 3 2020-21

Welcome to Year 3!

Hello Future Year 3s!


I am sorry that we didn't get to complete our usual transition day for us to get to know one another a little better, but here is a video to introduce myself! I hope that you all have a wonderful summer holiday. I am looking forward to seeing you all in September!


Take care and God bless,

Mrs Lambert

Create a picture, poster, poem or something else for our display that tells us something about you!

Make it bright and colourful :)

Bring this in on the first day back in school. I cannot wait to see all your wonderful creations! 

Our Timetable

Here is an example of what our timetable could look like in September for the first four weeks back while we review and revise our learning from previous years. However, this timetable could change as we start to understand more about what school will look like for us.

Reading Rocks!

Reading has the power to transform the way we write. It can expand our vocabulary, as well as expose us to techniques authors use to hook the interest of the reader.

100 Books to Read in Year 3 and 4

The list below includes recommended reads from different genres. A couple of the books have been hidden because we will be reading them as a class next year. Our challenge in Year 3 is to read as many books from the list as we can. Why not make a start over summer?


Summer Reading Bingo

I have attached a Summer Reading Bingo. How many books can you read over the summer? 

I would love to see and hear about your Summer Reading Bingo challenge. Take a photo of you engaging in books (paper/electronic/audibles) and bring it into school in September. 

Super Spellings!

Below are the spellings that we will be learning in Year 3.  Why not make a start over summer?  

How many different creative ways can you learn your spellings? Take a look at some ideas below!

Wonderful Writing

Below are the writing standards that we will be working towards in Year 3.
