St Gabriel’s Catholic Primary School Year 3 Pupils

Hello and a warm welcome to Year 3

Our class teachers are:

Class 6 - Mr Hibbert, Mrs Huxley


Class 7 - Miss Hughes, Mrs Harris & Miss Newsham


Class 6 and 7

We have an exciting year ahead and we can’t wait to get started!

In Maths our year will start by revising place value. The children will need to read, write, order and compare numbers upto 1000. After place value we will concentrate on the 4 operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). Once we have secured this we will then move onto learning about fractions, time, shape and different measurements. Throughout each maths topic the children will complete challenge work to secure and further their knowledge.

Our English lessons will be taught through the use of a range of story books. The children will write letters, diary entries, non-chronological reports, setting and character descriptions. The story books that we use will also link to our History, Geography or Science topics.

We have some exciting History and Geography topics this year including learning about the Stone Age, finding out if The Romans were good invaders, completing research all about Italy and discovering volcanoes all around the world.

Our Science topics this year cover a range of topics. We will be learning about magnets, rocks and soil, plants and animals including humans. During each topic the children will have lots of chances to plan and carry out investigations and practical experiments.

In addition Mr Artingstall will be in class every Thursday to teach Spanish, a lesson I am sure the children will look forward to each week.

Thank you for your ongoing support.

Mr Hibbert and Mrs Hughes
