Year Three

Sacramental Programme 2021-2022

‘The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.’


Dr Seuss


Spring Term


The children have settled well into Year 3.  They have certainly become more independent and are building upon their resilience skills.  Each morning the children begin their day with some fine motor/team-work activities for 10 minutes, which is done during registration. They work in pairs on a number of skills, having discussions and solving problems with their learning partner.  I certainly have noticed a difference, with the children becoming more ready to learn. This routine has helped the children to focus and they are raring to go on to Maths lesson at 9.15 a.m.



This term, the children will be focusing on multiplication and division, hoping to understand the relationship between the two.  They will be learning their times tables in fun ways, spending time during each lesson, chanting, singing or being quizzed on them.  Then the children will be investigating money and start to learn about statistical analysis methods like bar charts in their statistics topic.  During the second half term year 3 will be introduced to perimeter, length and will develop their understanding of fractions. 


Whole Class Reading

After morning break the children participate in whole class reading.  This term the children are reading the book The Iron Man written by Ted Hughes.  They will read a chapter and have to answer retrieval, inference and prediction questions related to the book.  They also will question why the author has used certain vocabulary.  Alongside this, the children have read and investigated key features of a variety of Instructions and Non-Chronological reports.  After half term the children will read The Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl, with some of the children going for phonics intervention during this time.



11.00-12.00 a.m. is our English lesson.  The children will cover the areas; Instructions, non-chronological reports, poetry, Myths and legends and recount/journalist writing.  The children will read around a variety of genre’s, making annotations of the qualities of the text. Then they spend the week completing grammar and word activities which will help them to eventually develop their own piece of writing. As you may be aware, I try to include practical activities to motivate the children, for example, making a cheese sandwich, which the children then had to write a set of instructions for another child. We have also used a video such as ‘The Girl and the Robot’ to stimulate diary writing. I like to use cross-curricular approaches to bring English into other subjects such as writing a non-chronological report about a country in the United Kingdom, acting as a synoptic link to our Geography topic.






During the Spring term the children will be learning about the following topics: Journeys; Listening and Sharing; and Giving all.  The children’s RE books are really special and they take great pride in their work.


Other Subjects

This term the children are learning about the United Kingdom.  They are using maps and atlases to locate major cities, rivers, mountains and seas/oceans in the United Kingdom.  They have used finger painting to decorate their own map and will be researching to find key facts about the countries, eventually leading up to writing a non-chronological report.

In Science the children are currently studying light and will be going on to learn about Forces and Magnets after half term.  Miss Owen delivers these lessons each Tuesday.

PE this term is dance, again Miss Owen teaches this.  We are very lucky as Miss Owen is a qualified dance teacher. She is teaching the children a dance routine, in which the children will perform for the school’s dance competition in March.  On Fridays the children use the computer suite, using the internet and the World Wide Web.  They are taught how to use it safely, using this time to research new topics.



At the start of each half term, the children will be given a Maths and English booklet, which has several worksheets that the children can do weekly.  They are to reinforce work that the children have been taught in class.  These can be uploaded on class dojo either weekly, daily or at the end of the term, or the children can bring the booklet in at the end of the half term. 


Spellings also have been given out and the children will be tested each Monday morning. 


If your child loses their booklets or needs a replacement, I have spare copies in class, so please just message me and I will make sure your child takes a new one home.


If you have any questions regarding your child’s progress or work, please message me and I will be in touch.

Welcome to Year 3

I hope you’ve had a wonderful Summer and are looking forward to the exciting challenges which lie ahead. We will be using Dojo as our main form of communication- please feel free to message us to say “hello”.

This term, we will be studying The Stone Age to Bronze Age including making fossils and cave paintings. Our science of Rocks and Soils relates closely to our History topic. In Religion, we are learning about Homes, Promises and Visitors.

PE will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday’s.  The children will need to bring their PE kit into school and will be required to keep it in school for the half term.  

PE will start on Tuesday 7th September.

Homework will include weekly spellings, times tables and either a maths or English worksheet.  Homework will be given out on a Monday and will need to be handed in by Friday.  The children will have weekly spelling and times table tests on Friday afternoons so that I can monitor their progress.

Reading books will also be sent home and can be changed any day. I would encourage you to hear your child read at least 5 times a week.

The homework will start week commencing Monday 13th September.

As you are aware, I am covering for Mrs. Langston, who is absent due to ill health. Our thoughts and prayers are with her. Miss Owens will be taking the class on a Tuesday afternoon to cover my planning, preparation and assessment time. 

I am looking forward to seeing all the children on Monday.  The children will need to come onto the Junior playground and I will be waiting to greet them.


Kind regards,

Mrs. Seville

Year 3 Timetable starting 13th September 2021

Home learning for children who are self-isolating or who have Covid.


As you are all aware, the Covid cases are increasing nationally.  Therefore I  have set up 5 days of  self-isolation work for any Year 3 child to do during their time at home.  Each day there will be a maths and English video along with another subject.  If your child starts from day 1 and works through the days.  This work is only for those children fit to do school work and aren't ill.  I have tried to do activities that don't require anything being printed off as I know some parents struggled with that during the last lockdown. 



Summer Half Term 1 

I hope you have had a lovely Easter and enjoyed the holidays, and eaten lots of chocolate, (I know I have). This half term, we have lots of enjoyable topics to cover and we will also be welcoming our student teacher, Miss Osman back. I know the children will be very pleased by her presence, and I am sure that she will be an excellent asset to our team. 


Over the next few weeks, the children will continue to develop their fractional skills, looking at fractions of both numbers and objects. The children have completed some work on this previously, therefore will merely be deepening their knowledge and understanding of the topic. They will be comparing, ordering and finding equivalents to fractions, perfectly preparing them for fractional addition and subtraction, later on.

We will teach all aspects of time, recapping and reviewing work completed in year 2: on the hour; half past; quarter past and quarter to times. Following this, they will then be moving on to more complex time-telling skills: the months in a year, hours in a day and telling the time in 5 minute and 1 minute intervals. We will introduce them to the 24-hour clock and also to a.m. and p.m. timings, which will lead on to problem solving activities, such as finding and comparing the duration of time. If your child owns a watch please encourage them to wear and use it.  One of the best tips I have received throughout my teaching career was to compel children to wear both digital and analogue watches in order to constantly request the time that they see. It is one aspect of maths that some children are likely struggle with. As a result, I will be creating a routine of time-telling with the children on a regular basis throughout the term, and I would advise you to do so at home.


We are focusing on explanation text and will be watching video clips from The Shirt Maker.  The class will be learning to write instructions, enhance their key vocabulary and work on sentence structure, all to help them design a shirt of their own. If your child hasn’t brought a plain old t-shirt/shirt in, then could they please do so as they will be designing their own imaginative shirts at the end of the unit in two/three weeks. Alongside this, we will continue reading Fantastic Mr Fox to help them develop their comprehension and inference skills, with a study booklet that I have personally created for them.

Spellings are shared on the class webpage and for those that have technical difficulties with printing I am more than happy providing a copy for the children to bring home with them. Please be aware that we are carrying out weekly, informal spelling, and multiplication (times table) tests every Friday. Just a not that I will be keeping a record of their scores in order to monitor the children’s progress each week.

On top of this, the children will be given plenty of time to practice handwriting and presentation skills. This is something that I am very passionate about as I would like the class to take great pride in their work.  We are concentrating on how to set our books out neatly, using margins for listing, using a ruler to underline and gluing in sheets throughout their books.  Alongside the children’s work being presentable, I have also ensured that the children keep our classroom tidy, which did actually pay off, when the children won a treat for having the tidiest classroom from Mrs Smith. I am glad to see that the children are beginning acknowledging other’s efforts and are always willing to help their peers. This is something that I am very keen to promote, with it displaying great maturity and kindness among the children. 


The children will be discovering new information about plant life. They will study the optimum growth conditions for plants, the process of plant growth and will carry out simple experiments, displaying capillary action. The practical I believe they will find the most interesting, however, is when we will be dissecting plants. With the weather improving and the plants blossoming around school there could not be a more perfect time to complete this topic!


The children will spend two/three weeks completing the geographical topic of ‘The United Kingdom’, before moving onto the new history topic of ‘The Mayans’.  This is something that our student teacher Miss Osman will lead, and will incorporate lots of art, design and technology within it. I think the children will find it very entertaining!


PE will be every Friday and, yet again, I would like the children to attend school in their PE kit that day. This half term, we will be doing a personal favourite of mine, athletics! I am very excited for the children to learn these skills, and who knows, maybe we might find the next Denise Lewis (who I have actually trained with), or Mo Farah! I cannot wait to teach this!



Sacramental Programme Letter 30.03.21

Sacramental Programme Summer 2021

Fun Easter  activities for you to do over the Easter Holidays. 

Spring Term 2 in Year 3

It is lovely having all the children back n school.  The children have lots of exciting things to look forward to over the next few weeks.  Sadly, we are having to say Goodbye to Daimon, who is going to live in Turkey.  We wish him and his family the best.  We must also keep in our thoughts Mrs Langston, who is having treatment for cancer. All the children, staff and parents wish her and her family all the best during these challenging times.

The focus for the children this half term; is to establish routines, build upon their home learning and to promote well-being.  I will be looking closely at children who are being kind, caring and helpful.  They will be getting spotted tickets and I will choose one person daily as the Star of the Day and one child who is Star of the Week. Also, at the end of the week there is a raffle with the spotted tickets, so the more the children receive the greater chance they have of winning the raffle prize.  During the term, the children will be completing a SMILE booklet, which stands for Social skills, Mental Health, Inclusion, Listening and Emotions.  It will help address any anxieties the children may have and provide them with strategies to help relieve stress or worries.  


The children will continue to recap and be reintroduced to fractions whether that be of shapes or quantities. We will also spend time embedding some concepts in length such as perimeter and converting measures as parents informed me that these were some area their child required more support with.  There will be four lessons each week learning new objectives with one session assessing, or recapping work covered during Lockdown.  At the end of the term the children will take some formal assessments based on the whole terms work.


We will be reading and studying the book ‘The Barnabus Project’ by The Fan Brothers.  It is a beautiful book and introduces the children to the theme of community.  It incorporates English skills with mindfulness activities.  The children work on grammar, vocabulary, comprehension and writing tasks alongside pastoral topics such as freedom, teamwork, and equal rights for all.  I am really looking forward to teaching this.  At the end of the topic the children will create their own Failed Pet out of clay.  After that I will be using a video of ‘The Shirt Maker’ to engage the children in English, the children will be introduced to explanation texts and writing ending the topic with the children designing and making their own t-shirt/shirt. Parents- if you have any old shirts/t-shirts can you send them into school for our English topic.  Many thanks in advance. Children will be given spellings each week to learn in school.  I will put them on the class page so they can practice at home.  They will be tested every Friday.  I will keep a record of their results.  The aim is to improve each week.  There will be a greater emphasis on handwriting and presentation and reading.  This term the children will study Fantastic Mr Fox by Roald Dahl completing a range of activities from the book. 


We are in the period of lent, the children will be making Lenten promises and celebrating the lead up to Easter. 

Other Subjects

In science we will continue our work on magnets and forces, looking at what materials are magnet and nonmagnet.  The United Kingdom is what the children will be studying in Geography.  We will be using atlases for find information about capital cities, rivers and settlements.  In music the children will be having ukulele lessons with Miss Ashton every Thursday afternoon. PE will be a mix of dance, yoga and bat and ball skills. In art the children will be studying the English artist Thomas Gainsborough and as a class going to recreate one of his famous paintings ‘Mr and Mrs Andrews.’

PE will be on Friday so children will need to come in PE  kit plus additional layers to keep warm. 

Spelling and times table test on Friday's.

Hi All!

I hope everyone is well and has enjoyed the sunshine we had!  Let's hope there is some more to follow!  I am uploading some material for this week!   We continue looking at equivalent fractions and compare which fractions are bigger than others.  For writing, I would like you all to write your own persuasive leaflet inviting others to visit Central America to see the Ancient Maya monuments, this should include all the research you have been doing so far but laid out a persuasive brochure, you are persuading people to buy your holiday to Ancient Maya.   Your text should have a Title, at least 3 subtitles each with a paragraph underneath describing one of the key places to visit and why (3 places altogether).  If you choose to do this work on a laptop you could use Word, if not why not print out or draw some pictures to illustrate your work.  Don't forget to add fun facts, introduction and a conclusion to your writing!

For RE we are learning about Hinduism, I have included a worksheet with a video link, on this you can tour a Mandir which is a Temple.  I have included a Hindu prayer too!

For science this week, our new topic is 'We are Astronauts' please look at the first lesson on the PPT, draw what you think the moon looks like and then look at the pictures, were you close?  Answer the challenge questions if you can.


I will update with some lessons later on in the week!

Bye for now!

Mrs Langston



Hello Year 3!


I am uploading some more resources, even though this is the half term holidays, don't feel you have to do anything at all, these are for some people who really want to continue doing some school work.


There are some more fractions work, including fractions on a number line, fractions of numbers and tenths as decimals.


For our Literacy work watch 'The Presesnt' I have uploaded some planning, teaching notes and resources for some writing suggestions such as:

  • Narrative
  • Character description
  • Narrative opening
  • Information text
  • Balanced informative text

Watch here:


I have found a great comprehension pack, you can look at the reading on the screen or print it off, perhaps doing one a week.  They will be helpful to keep your reading skills up! 

Download here:


I will finish off here for now.  Again, don't feel you have to finish all this, we are on half term, but if you want to do some school work you can.


Stay safe everyone, I miss our happy, fun class and really look forward to seeing you all again soon.


Mrs Langston







Print a Manchester bee or make your own to remember those who were affected by the Manchester attack May 22nd 2017, please upload a photo of you holding it to the Class story on the Dojo app.

Dear all,


Here are some more ideas to keep us going during this trying time.  I have started with some RE lessons on Pentecost, there is a collective worship PowerPoint to say some prayers in a collective worship.  There are also some lessons which the children can use their inference skills to describe how the apostles might have felt during this time.


I have uploaded a PowerPoint on Magnetism with some worksheets attached which continues our Science topic.  There are videos to watch which will guide you in this topic.  Lastly how are you doing with your research into the Ancient Maya?  Why not add to this by researching the farming methods of the Maya?  They used 3 types of farming methods, can you find these out?  What did they grow and eat in Maya times?  Perhaps you could design healthy tortilla recipe?  Here are some French websites to learn about the names of colours in French, one is a song and the other a story, take a look!


You may recognise the song!


Take care everyone!

Love Mrs Langston

PS.  Do check out the class Dojos and contact me via these if you need to, I will be uploading material next week also!



Hello again Year 3, 

Here are some Maths lessons for next week beginning 18th May, I will copy these onto the class Dojo site too!  They focus on fractions.  Please logon to this to keep in touch with me more easily.  I have also uploaded to comprehensions on weather, there is also a writing task on this subject.  Take a look!  Remember to continue your research on the Ancient Maya and Magnets, try making a timeline of the Maya using what you can research on line!  Continue to look at the effects of magnets, what metals are magnetic?  If you can't research at home take a look here Can you draw some things that are magnetic in your home?  Which are electromagnetic?  What does this mean?


Keep exercising and only do what you can...remember don't worry!  Give all your worries to God and stay safe!


Love Mrs Langston

Dear all,


I hope everyone is well and happy!  I have set up a class dojo account so that we can keep in touch more closely and I can assign some more activities to keep your brain's ticking while we are at home so parents please look out for emails explaining how to connect and keep in touch!


I will be uploading a comprehension called Tom's exciting morning, this is a short section of writing which will test your inference skills, so use evidence from the text to show why your character is thinking or feeling a certain way.

you you

I will also upload some times tables challenges, these are timed so try to practise them often to improve your speed!


Here are some French websites to practise the names of objects found in a classroom, some songs to help you remember too!

How many words can you remember?


Please check out the class dojos for some more assigned tasks for science and History, we are looking at the Maya Culture and I would .like you to research these topics!


Bye for now,


Mrs Langston









Hello everybody!


Are you bored yet?  If you want to do some exciting activities but learn at the same time...try these!

There's nothing I like better than edible science!


Try making a catapult which fires marshmallows this will use your STEM abilities and have some fun too:


Check out what happens when you put a marshmallow in the microwave!  Why not make a prediction first then test it out's a video in case you can't get out to the shops!


Why not try to make a DNA molecule using sweets?


Finally, try to make 3 D shapes using marshmallows and cocktail sticks... can you name the properties of the shapes you have made?


Remember to work with your parent and carer during these activities, use the cocktail sticks carefully and don't use the microwave by yourself as things can get hot!  


Bye for now and enjoy yourselves!


Mrs Langston





Hello Year 3!


I hope you are all well and happy and can enjoy the sunshine safely!  Here are some more things to keep you occupied and challenged.

This is a story to help explain the bug that is keeping us away from school, kindly shared by a parent at St Teresa's,.


Some great activities to study Science and Technology at home might be to look at this website:

It gives some fantastic ways to explore science whilst at home and it's aimed at parents..  You may have to create a log in to look but try it out.  There are D.T., Computing, maths and other cross curricular activities on there too, so take a look.


I have uploaded 'Little Inventors Daily challenges' for some fun activities.


Finally, I will upload some materials for V.E. day tomorrow and also some Literacy Shed activities based on the video 'A Cloudy Lesson.'  Click on the video link to watch the video and do some of the activities.  I suggest the Instructions text or dialogue, as in year 3 we learn about speech marks as part of the curriculum.  So see above for these.


Take care everyone, I will say a prayer we can see each other very soon,


Mrs Langston








Please follow the link for white rose maths that we follow in school, you will be able to plan and prepare lessons with the worksheets covering the topics that we follow in school.  Check out Spring and Summer planning here:



Here is a nice activity to do at home, it encourages children to keep a record of what is going on at this time and how they experience it, worth keeping to remember this strange event in our lives... it was sent in by a parent and might come in useful as an activity.


Take care everyone!

Dear All!


I hope you are all well and happy!  

Here are some activities to keep you active at home!  Click here to find activities which are fun and will keep you learning at the same time, check them out!


Click here for this weeks Mass at St John's Church Chorlton:  remember to search youtube for any further masses.


Learn the French alphabet using songs, games and a quiz here, can you say it independently?


Look at the wonderful Literacy Shed resources here:

Try the Unit on Marshmallows, the lesson plans are there, with a video clip, we use these resources all the time!  You can describe settings using expanded noun phrases and write a non chronological report.  Check out the resources that support this material too!


I hope you enjoyed St George's day on the 23rd April.  There are some r interesting materials on St George here if you forgot to celebrate:  


I miss you all very much, stay safe!

Hello Children and Parents of year 3!


I hope you are all keeping busy and staying safe!  Here are some fun activities to do at home to help you with maths!


There are some fantastic challenges on:  take a look! this is a youtube video showing you how to do a fraction wall at home and to discuss the proportional  relationship between different fractions.  Check out the BBC live lessons for Primary School here, the 'shape and space' section is good, but the children will need support as it is aimed at 8-11 year olds.


Thinking of our First Holy Communion please watch the story of the last supper:  Can you retell the story?  Why do you think that we remember this moment during mass?  Say a prayer tonight that we will be together soon and that we can make the Sacrament of First Holy Communion very soon..


Keep active with these stay at home activities:


Also, try watching the videos on 3d shapes:

and 2d shapes:


Can you practise describing some shapes using their properties?  Perhaps your parents or brothers and sisters can guess the ones you are describing.  Use a straight edge or ruler to draw and label your shape.  What is a quadrilateral?  How many different quadrilaterals can you describe?


I miss you all very much and I am looking forward to seeing you all soon.

Mrs Langston.


PS if you are itching to do some writing, why not research and write a recipe on how to make a healthy snack at home using ingredients in your cupboard.  You could write the instructions and try it with the help of a parent or adult carer.




A Research Project on Deserts

Hello again Year 3!


I hope you are all well and not missing school too much!  I am going to upload a research project you can do at home on our topic 'The Desert' which should keep you busy.  We would have been doing our First Holy Communion this weekend, so I am sending my love to everyone, and I hope that you all are not too sad that it isn't possible to do this at the moment.  I pray that we will soon be able to come back to school and reorganise this special day.  Here are some French and Science websites to enjoy in the meantime.

This term we are studying Plants, one of our objectives is to:


 identify and describe the functions of different parts of flowering plants: roots, stem/trunk, leaves and flowers


Why not put a celery stick into some water and food dye?  Leave it overnight and check the plant.  How does the water travel through the celery stick?  What might be happening?  Can you explain what you can see?  Look at a plant in your garden, can you identify the different parts?  what parts are underground that you can't see?


Last year you investigated the factors that plants need to grow well, such as light, water and air, so why not try looking at the effect of fertilizer?  Do plants need soil to grow?  If you don't have any seeds why not take one from a vegetable in your fridge such as a pepper, put water on a paper towel, will the seed grow?  Make a prediction and try it for yourself!


What is it in soil that makes plants grow well?


Here are some French songs, games and information to amuse you all!


Legend of the Easter bells

French culture learning


Songs, Stories and rhymes

Jean Petit qui danse


All my best wishes,

Mrs Langston. 

Dear Year 3,


I am missing you all very much!  Here are some things to do this week that might occupy your time whilst you are at home!

Why not practice our French seasons song and perform it for your parents?  Here are the links to it and some French stories about the seasons.

Seasons Song:

Le vente et le soleil:

Peppa Pig Story: 

You can also look at some shadow experiments on line such as:

For fun!   Keep practising your times tables and you could even write a story about how your shadow went on an adventure without you! 

Miss you all so much!

Stay well and wash your hands....Mrs Langston
