Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!


Dear parents, carers and children,

Welcome to Year 3's Class Page! Here you will be able to find out about the learning we are enjoying in school, as well as keeping up to date with important information about the class. The children have made an excellent start to life in Key Stage 2 and we are already so proud of how well they are adapting to the daily routines. Thank you for your support at home - if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school office ( and we will get back to you as soon as we can!

Kind regards,

Mr Bell and Miss Gill


Remote Learning: Monday 23rd November - Wednesday 2nd December


For the next 8 school days, we will be continuing our learning online via Google Classroom. How exciting!

Your first job is to make sure you have joined the class. Use the usernames and password details you have been given to login, and use the code vtfzcar to join 'Elm - Year 3'. This will work best on Google Chrome on a laptop or computer, rather than a phone.

Below is the timetable you will be following to structure your days. Each morning, at 9am, Mr Bell or Miss Gill will be hosting a video meeting to say hello and explain the English and Maths activities. At 1pm, we will catch up again to discuss the afternoon activity. 

If you are having issues logging into Google Classroom, please contact the school office via who will try to support you. Otherwise, see you there!

Term 1

English - Here We Are

In Year 3, like the rest of the school, we have used Oliver Jeffers' heartfelt text to help us re-engage with school life after a prolonged period of time at home. In the book, which Jeffers wrote for his son, he articulates how awe-inspiring the world is and how lucky we are to belong here, along with the special people in our lives who are closest to us. It has helped us to reflect on our own 'happy' places where we feel calm and relaxed, as well as showing appreciation for the people we love. In our writing, we have focused on the importance of protecting our common home, in particular those we share it with, by planning and writing a persuasive letter to the school community to help  encourage us to act sensibly, be mindful and feel safe during this peculiar time we are currently living in. We look forward to sharing these with you once we have completed them!
