Mrs Pasterfield

Year 3 Teacher/Deputy Headteacher

Mrs Wilde


Welcome to 3P

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

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 this half term is 'The World and Us'


In Geography we will be learning all about maps, grid references, the points on a compass, the major bodies of water on the earth and locating hemisphere and the tropics.  In science we will be identifying and describing the functions of parts of a plant and exploring what plants need for life.  In art we will be exploring sculptures and making some of our own.



. This half term we will  focus on the book 'The Pirates Next Door' by Jonny Duddle



This is a fantastic book with some great descriptions and unusual words. Through this book we will continue to learn to extend our sentences with subordinate conjunctions, subordinate clauses and extended noun phrases. We will also look at how to punctuate speech correctly.  It will link to our Festival on the Field theme and we will also be holding a 'pirate day' later in the term.

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:
