Welcome to Year 3
Welcome to our Year 3 page. Here you will find useful information about our termly curriculum, PE days, homework expectations and useful websites.
Our 2016/7 curriculum maps can be found here:
We use our CLIC values to help us to learn to the best of our ability. We believe that every child has the right-
C– to be a confident communicator
L– to learn
I– to improve their health
C– to be part of a community
At Netley Abbey Junior School, these ideas underpin all of our learning. With this in mind, please take some time to see what we have been up to in class.
If you would like any further information about our curriculum, please feel free to talk to our class teachers in the first instance who should be able to answer any queries. After talking to the class teacher, if there are any further enquires, they can be directed toward our head teacher.
Meet our Teachers
Miss Tebbutt/Mrs Opoku —– Castle
Miss Warraich—– Westwood
Miss Smith —– Grange
We would like children to have their PE kit in school every day, however, we understand that they do need washing!
Our PE days are-
Castle – Monday and Friday
Westwood – Wednesday and Thursday
Grange – Tuesday and Wednesday
We use a spelling scheme across the whole school (No Nonsense Spelling) which means that all children in year 3 will learn the same spelling pattern. We will give the children two sentences to learn which will include spelling pattern and statutory spelling words.
Some children will receive an additional 5 key spelling words, which they will be tested on fortnightly.
Please continually practise your child’s times tables with them over the year. For the autumn term we will be focussing on times table homework for maths. May we remind you of the government expectation that children should know all times tables up to x 12 by the end of year 4. With this in mind, it is important children consolidate their learning regularly at home in order to meet age related expectations.
Homework will be given out on a Friday and due back in on the following Wednesday. Spelling tests will take place on a Friday.
Thank you for your continued support with your child’s homework. If you do have any queries please do not hesitate to speak to one of us directly.

This half term we are learning about our local area in Geography. To further enrich our learning we went on a wondrous walk around Netley Abbey. We spotted the human and physical features in the village, discussing the materials used and how they have survived. As well as this we also explored the roads where our class names came from. We all had a great time and were very tired when we returned to school; luckily it was just in time for break! Here are some photos of us enjoying the day.
