Welcome to 3P

3P is taught by Mrs Paterfield and Mrs Wilde, our HLTA, takes the class on Tuesdays

Please use our class page to find out about what we are learning and doing during the year.  More detailed information about the class theme can be found by opening the 'Curriculum Plan' which can be found in 'Files to download' lower down the class homepage.

Our theme for the Summer Term is 'The World Around Us'.


In Geography we will be developing our understanding of maps, learning about keys and how to create a map of the local area. In addition, we will be learning about physical and human features.  In Science this term we will be learning about plants and what each part of the plant does. We will also explore the requirements of plants for life and will be carrying out lots of experiments to prove this.

In Art we will be exploring the medium of collage and creating a collage of sunflowers in the style of Vincent Van Gogh. 



In English, we will be looking at non-fiction texts and how this genre differs to fiction. After exploring a range of non-fiction texts, we will be writing our own non-chronological reports based around the country we have chosen to base our Festival on the Field performance around- England.


The children will learn-

  • To identify and create headings and subheadings.
  • To research and find facts within a text.
  • To use a range of fronted adverbials to make their work more interesting.
  • To extend their sentences using subordinating clauses.
  • To use research to write a non-chronological report about a chosen topic.


In year 3, we will have a strong focus on handwriting and spelling.  A list of year 3 words that the children need to learn to spell can be found at the bottom of the page in 'Files to download'.                     




In maths the children will develop their ability and knowledge in the following concepts.  Through a mastery style of teaching the children will develop their fluency in these areas as well as an ability to reason and problem solve using this knowledge.

The children will learn:  

  • To learn how to measure in mm, cm and m.
  • To learn how to calculate the perimeter of a shape.
  • Tell the time to the nearest minute.
  • To read and record time using an analogue clock and in digital
  • To learn 24 hour clock times.
  • We will also be learning to tell the time with Roman Numerals.
  • The days of the week, months of the year and how many days in each month.
  • To compare periods of time.
  • To find the difference between two times of the day.

Times tables:

As children are required to know their multiplication tables up to 12x12 by the end of Year 4, a key area of focus is to develop our multiplication tables knowledge and become times table superstars! Strong multiplication table knowledge is crucial in many areas of maths and children should be able to recall these quickly and confidently. On top of your child's weekly mathematics homework, children should spend some time each week practising their times tables. Please enjoy exploring the times table activities below:
