Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


Summer 2

The Romans

Were the Romans cruel conquerors or brave builders?

In this topic, children will gain an overall understanding of the Roman civilisation, the reasons for the invasion of Britain, what life was like in Roman Britain and how the Roman Empire ended.

The Year 3 Team

Year 3 is composed of Topaz Class taught by Mr Wells and Turquoise Class taught by Ms Proctor and Ms Moss. We also have fantastic teaching assistants, Mrs Sanders, Mrs Farboud, and Ms Wojciechowska, who support learning across Year 3.

We encourage children to drink throughout the day. Please send your child in each day with a named water bottle.

Throughout the week, we work independently and with a learning partner. These pairings will change throughout the year so that everybody gets the opportunity to work with a variety of classmates.

In Year 3 we love reading and we try to read as much as possible. We encourage parents to read regularly with their children and to record this in their child’s reading record. Children may also record their own independent reading in their reading record.

Our PE days:

Topaz Class MONDAY (SWIMMING) and THURSDAY (outdoor activities)

Turquoise Class MONDAY (SWIMMING) and THURSDAY (outdoor activities)

Please ensure that the children come dressed in their PE kits with a change of clothes in their bags. That way the children only have to change once and it saves time during the school day. 

We require children to wear navy shorts and a white T-shirt. As the weather gets cooler, navy jogging trousers and a navy sweatshirt may be worn. Trainers or plimsolls should also be worn to school. Please make sure children come to school with hair tied back and do not wear earrings.


The children are required to bring:

  • Swimming Costume
  • Towel
  • Goggles 
  • Swimming cap (the Abbey pool requires all swimmers to wear a swimming cap)



We have an amazing library filled with a variety of books to enthuse all children’s interests. Children have the opportunity to take book out of the library, but we ask that, once they have finished the book, they return it before taking home another!
