Timetable 1


With Miss Hall we will be learning how to use the formal methods for multiplication and division. We will be learning our 3, 4 and 8 times tables. We are going to start learning about multiplying and dividing two digit numbers by one digit numbers.


With Mrs Batten, we will be learning how to use method strategies to support our calculations. 




This term we are going to writing persuasive letters. The children will be thinking about persuasive language and how to use persuasive openers. 



We are working really hard to improve our handwriting at St Joseph's. This term, year 3 will be focusing on letter formation and letter sizing. If you would like to practice at home, print off some handwriting paper from the link below. Miss Hall has set a challenge to find the most improved handwriting. The prize for the most improved is the chance to use the laptop for a few lessons.


Spellings are given out every Monday and will be tested the following Monday. Use the sheet to help you to practice every day. Please hand this back in every Monday. 


If you need another spelling sheet, click on the link to print a new copy.


Year 3 are learning about Reconciliation. We even got a visit from Father Naz. 


Father Naz even joined Miss Hall for a class collective worship about community.

We have just started to learn our days of the week. Mrs Batten would love it if you could practice at home.

Home learning

Every week the children carry out a number club challenge. I have created some number club practice sheets to be printed at home which contain similar questions to the ones we use in school. If you would like to, give yourself 10 minutes to answer as many as possible. Check your own answers and correct any mistakes.
