Year 3


Welcome to the Year 3 page.

My name is Mr Hollinrake and I teach Year 3. I have really enjoyed teaching Year 3 so far this year and continue to look forward to teaching them for the rest of the year. Mr Scott who will be delivering Active 30 for the children each day.

If you wish to contact me you can put a note in the child's communication diary, email the school office or email

Summer 2021
I am very excited to be able to teach the full curriculum once again for the summer term. All of the subjects will be taught throughout the term as well as recapping Maths and English. We will also be looking at RSE for the first time.
Our topic this half term is The Penny Black which mainly focuses on History skills. For art, we will be looking at the work by Andy Warhol to create repeated patterns of Queen Victoria. For Music we will be learning all about Christmas songs from the Victorian times and listening to different pieces of music.
We will be studying animals including humans this half term, which is a really interesting topic that I know they really enjoyed in year 2.
This half term we will be working on rounders and tennis alongside our daily active 30 sessions.
Google classroom
We have done lots of work on Google Classroom over lockdown, and now we are coming out of lockdown we will still be using this to help us with our computing and different tasks.


Your child will receive spellings each week which they will practise both at home and in school ready for a weekly spelling test in school. The children can continue to use TT rockstars to practise their times tables. When the children have been reassessed on Accelerated reader we will start to send reading books home. Please make sure you continue to read with your child each night and sign their communication diary when you have herd them read.
I am also going to give you some url's for great online resources to use at home.

Our P.E. days are a Tuesday and a Friday this term. But remember that because of Active 30 the children will need their P.E. kits everyday.
