St. Peter's Catholic Primary School Together as a school family, we live, love and learn in Jesus' footsteps

Welcome to Year 3

The Year 3 Staff

Mrs MacDonald and Mrs McGuinness teach class 3MM and Mrs Izatt teaches class 3EI. Mrs Davidson, Mrs Withers, Mrs Moore and Mrs Mulla are the Year 3 Team Teaching Assistants.

Our PPA is covered every other Wednesday in 3EI by Mrs Davis and every Wednesday afternoon in 3MM by Mrs Sellers.


In Year 3 we have homework each week. On a Monday we are set Spellings which we learn ready to be tested each Friday. We also are learning our 2, 5, 10, 3, 4 and 8 times table and division facts which we are expected to practise regularly throughout the week ready for a weekly times table test. On Wednesday we have English homework which may be a comprehension task to be returned by Friday.

We take home and read our reading books every night and change them on a Monday and Thursday.

What our week looks like

The Year 3 curriculum encompasses a range of innovative, engaging activities every week across the curriculum.

We love celebrating our creativity in Year 3 and look forward to any opportunity that arises to link it into our learning. We are looking forward to studying aspects of History, Geography, Art, D&T and Computing this term in our Autumn Topic, ‘Tribal Tales’. We can’t wait to delve into history from Pre-historic times, through the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age, and explore how human life has evolved over time. Watch this space to follow our incredible learning journey!

In Key Stage 2, we all also learn Spanish. This is taught once a week by Senora Moore.

Each Y3 class has the chance to go swimming at GL1. 3EI will be swimming every Tuesday and 3MM will be swimming every Thursday until Christmas.
