Year 3

Amethyst and Quartz are our year 3 classes.

Hello and welcome to Year 3!

If you’ve ever wondered how to count to 10 in Spanish or why not all deserts are hot – then you have come to the right place! We learn about this and much more. In our topic lessons we will learn why ancient Chinese people used shells for money and what houses were like in the Stone Age. In Science we explore how our body works and do some cool magic tricks with light!

At Abbeyfield Primary Academy everyone’s opinion and wellbeing matters. If you have any questions or worries please feel free to speak to your class teacher.



How can you help your child at home?

Please make sure that your child completes 1 maths and 1 creative homework each week.  These are found in a ‘Homework Menu’ where the child can choose which task to do each week. Keep the homework menu somewhere safe!

Amethyst: Homework out Thursday, due in on Tuesday.

Quartz: Homework out Friday, due in Wednesday.

Please also make sure to write in your reading journal when you are reading. There are prizes for reading! Return this to your teacher with your homework each week.

Help your child to practise spellings each week for a weekly spelling test.

We also have access to online apps to help learning. BugClub and Times Table Rockstars. The child’s log in can be found at the front of their reading journal. Please let your teacher know if you need a reminder.
