St Martin and St Mary Church of England Primary School

Year 3


Year 3 is led by Gareth Hodgson, Jane Williamson and Helen Whitehead, and supported by Sue Storey, Cathy Noble, Karen Garstang, Bev Rowlinson and Carole Quill.

After a fun-packed Spring term, we are eager to continue our learning and have a very busy Summer term ahead of us.  This term we are studying Mighty Mountains and the Stone Age as our main topics.  We are also looking forward to our Outdoor Education day at Rydal caves where we will be cooking on Trangias and using our orienteering skills to navigate ourselves around Borrans Park.  This term we will also begin our swimming lessons, our day is a Tuesday; please make sure that your child has the appropriate kit.  Alongside this excitement we continue our learning in school: exploring fractions, shape and measure in mathematics, whilst writing creatively around the book ‘The Pebble in my Pocket’ by Meredith Hooper during English - we will also focus on instructional writing later in the term.  In Science our key focuses are Rocks and in the second part of the term ‘Inventors and Famous Scientists’. 

We would love to see as many parents and friends as possible at our Y3 Swimming Gala on the morning of Tuesday 17th July and our KS2 Sports Day on the afternoon of Friday 20th July.
