Welcome to Chestnut’s Class Page.

A big hello from everyone in Year 3!


Year 3 is very exciting for your child and me, Mrs. Pressey, their class teacher! They will learn many new skills and extend their knowledge and understanding.

Talking to your children about the work they are doing in school is great. They will be very keen to tell you about what we are learning and the activities we are carrying out.

They are set homework weekly, on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday. There are set spellings, Literacy and Numeracy, occasionally topic work will be set.

During the Autumn term our topic is Ourselves and has included work on our body and teeth.

In Literacy we have been looking at a range of fiction (adventure stories, plays and poetry) and non-fiction (reports and instructions).

In maths we have studies shape, measuring, data handling, understanding number and knowing and understanding number facts.

In R.E. we have been remembering and giving thanks.
