Moulton School




Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

Mrs Aidley and Mrs Deacon would like to welcome you to our class page.

Below, you will find some useful information about what is going on in the Year 3 classroom this year.


Reading is one of the most vital part of a child's development. It helps to stimulate imagination,  build a broad vocabulary and develop a child's knowledge and understanding of the world around them. At Moulton, we aim to develop a life-long love of reading. We encourage reading at home to be a shared experience where possible. This may be the child reading aloud to a parent, a parent reading aloud to a child and/or a discussion about what they have read.  Children must read with an adult at home at least 3 times a week. Please ensure that this is recorded on their dojo portfolio. 

We have a wide range of texts for the children to choose from in school. As well as this, we use texts on MyOn and Accelerated Reader. We use accelerated reader to assess the children and this will help to guide their book choice.. Please follow the link to find more information about accelerated reader: http://www.renlearn.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2014/09/AR-parents-guide-updated.pdf 

Reading is central to everything we do in school and we love sharing engaging and exciting texts with the children. We have a class story that we read daily and the children have one class guided reading session and one group guided reading session each week. 


Each half term, we explore a new high quality text. In our English lessons, the children will develop an understanding of the spelling, punctuation and grammar that is expected in Year 3.


Autumn: The Barnabus Project, Seal Surfer and Winter's Child

Spring: Big Blue Whale and Escape from Pompeii

You can keep up to date with the children's maths learning on Class Dojo. Practising timestables regularly helps to develop fluency and benefits many areas of mathematical learning. Children can practise at home easily using Times Table Rockstars. This can be accessed via the app or webpage. 


PE is taught on Tuesdays and Thursdays in Year 3. Please ensure that if your child has earrings, they are removed or taped on PE days. 


Keep up to date with your child's learning in school via Class Dojo - class story.  If you have any questions or queries, please get in touch via dojo.
