Welcome to our Class page! 

In Tulip Class we work hard every day to create an enjoyable learning environment where we are encouraged to achieve our best and work together for a brighter future! 


Literacy (writing):

In Year 3 we cover a range of genres including: narrative, recount, poetry, information texts and diary writing. We link our Literacy to our learning theme for example: 'Are you attractive enough?' (Science) is linked to 'The Iron Man' story.


We encourage children to read every day at home - please remember to sign your child's reading diary! Every child in school is competing in The Reading Race. Every time your child reads at home they are awarded steps on The Reading Race, this amounts to a final score at the end of each term and children receive prizes.


In Year 3 we spend a lot of time focusing on number and calculation. This should give children a good foundation and allow them to apply their skills to other mathematical areas. Children are given weekly numeracy homework on Friday and this is due back into school by the following Wednesday.

Learning Challenge Curriculum:

Throughout the year we will be covering many fun and exciting topics following the new curriculum. Each topic starts with a WOW activity to capture the children's interest and inspire their curiosity to learn more.
The Learning Questions are as follows:

  • Why do so many people go on holiday to the Mediterranean? (Autumn 1)
  • Are you attractive enough? (Autumn 1)
  • Who first lived in Britain? (Autumn 2)
  • What do rocks tell us about the way the Earth is formed? (Autumn 2)
