Holgate Primary and Nursery

year 3

Welcome to Year 3 

In Year 3, we have 2 classes: 3NW and 3JE  

Adults that work in Year 3 are:  

  • Mrs Wilkinson (3NW Class Teacher)
  • Mrs Eyre (3JE class teacher) 
  • Mrs Hicklin (Teaching Assistant)
  • Miss Willet (Teaching Assistant) 
  • Ms Roe (HLTA – in 3NW every Monday) 
  • Mrs Humphreys (HLTA – in 3JE every other Tuesday)

Have a look through our page for ideas and activities on the curriculum we follow and links and guidance to additional resources to enable you to help you to contribute to your child’s learning. 


Although PE kits need to be in school every day, for this half term, PE is on: 

Wednesday - Indoor PE Tuesday – Swimming
Thursday - Outdoor PE Thursday - Indoor PE


Learning in Year 3 

The expectation in Year 3 is that: -

  • All children know their 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables and can apply their understanding to multiplication and division problems.  
  • Children should be consistently joining their handwriting. 
  • By the end of Year 3, children should be able to read and accurately spell words from this spelling list. 

Throughout the school year, we will work on different Curriculum Vehicles. A vehicle is the theme or idea which drives our learning. Our first Curriculum Vehicle of this school year is called: The Magician's Workshop!  

Click here to download a knowledge organiser to help support your child throughout this Curriculum Vehicle. This gives you useful information linked to the work that we are doing in class - our vehicle. You will see the areas we will be covering, some “sticky” knowledge that we would like the children to learn, useful books to read and share with your child, key vocabulary and a few ideas of websites to visit. 

It would be really supportive of your child’s learning in school if you could talk to them throughout this half term about the information on here and about what they have been doing in class.


Generally, Homework will go out on a Friday and need to be handed in the following Friday.  

Maths will often be set on Mathletics or Timetable Rockstarz.   

English will include (but are not limited to): Spellings (these will be written into pupil organisers during spelling sessions); written work (this may be set on PurpleMash) 

We would encourage children to try to read for at least 10 minutes a day. More information about your child’s reading level can be found in their pupil organisers.
