Year 3 2019/20


Welcome back to school, and welcome to Key Stage 2!

This year, Mrs Plant, Miss Webb and Mrs Knight will lead our Year 3 team; we will be supported by Mrs Carlyle, Miss Draycott, and Mrs Gamban.

Can we remind all parents and carers to ensure that your child has a suitable PE kit in school?

As always, we look forward to working with you this year. If you have any questions, please come and speak to any member of the Y3 team.

Autumn 2

This half term we are asking the question, "Is there magic in our world?"

After a successful visit last half term to Weston Park Museum to see the Joe Scarborough exhibition, we are planning another visit which will involve magic and writing. More details to follow.

Additionally, on Tuesday 19th November, we will be visiting the Manor library to meet the librarians, Fay and Debbie. Bring your library card to borrow a book. If you don't have library card, complete the library form (these are available at school) and send it in with your child and the librarians will issue a card during the visit so your child can borrow a book instantly. You are also very welcome to meet us at the library - just check with your child's class teacher for the visit times.

As our violin lessons continue in Y3, we will be inviting you to come and watch us practise in a music lesson one Wednesday morning - details to follow.

As ever, please come and ask us if you have any queries or concerns. We look forward to working alongside you this half term.

Autumn 1

During this half term our school learning journey question will be "What makes us who we are?" with Year 3 asking, "Who am I?"

We are focusing on being a 'Sheffielder' and linking our learning to the writer Berlie Doherty and the artist Joe Scarborough. We are planning a visit to Weston Park Museum later this half term to see the Joe Scarborough exhibition as well as a visit to our local community library. Details to follow.

This year your child will also start music lessons in association with The Sheffield Music Hub and learn to play the violin as part of their curriculum.

Our Autumn 1 Learning

In RE the children are learning about Islam and Judaism; two parents came in to school and spoke to the children about what it involved being a muslim.

The children learnt about the clothing worn, the food that is eaten and where worship takes place.

The parents also answered questions from the children.


In Year 3 the children have been learning about Islam and Judaism, the children have been looking at the similarities and differences between the two religions.

We have looked at clothing, places of worships and food. One of the parents made us a cake to celebrate the end of the learning, it was delicious!

We went on a visit to Weston Park Museum to see the Joe Scarborough exhibition ...
