Year 3 – Rowan Class

Welcome to Rowan Class!

Rowan Class is taught by Miss Thomas and Miss Stockton, Mrs Meredith and Mrs Talbot are the class teaching assistants. In Year 3, we strive to achieve our full potential, ensuring that together as a class we grow. Although we work hard, we learn with smiles and laughter along the way.

In English, Rowan Class will write for a range of purposes, such as a narrative based on a familiar story and instruction writing. We will continue to practice joined handwriting regularly and in spelling lessons children will be taught the spelling rules for Years 3 and 4.

In Maths, we will be following the National Centre for Excellence in Teaching Mathematics (NCETM) sequence of teaching. Following a small-step approach ensures that everyone achieves mastery and that no child is left behind.

In reading lessons, we will be exploring a range of texts and completing a variety of comprehension tasks to demonstrate our understanding and help us to embed what we have read.

Rowan’s History topic is The Stone Age and in Geography our topic is Climate and Weather.

In RE, our lessons will focus on understanding Christianity and learning about what Hindus believe. In PSHE, our lessons will focus on families and relationships and internet safety.

Important information for parents:

Reading is a vital skill for life and learning. Parents can help to nurture and encourage a love of reading in their child by listening to your child read daily. As little as 5-10 minutes reading a day can have a huge impact on your child’s reading progress and attainment. Please ensure that you sign your child’s reading diary as a record of them reading at home. There are also book prizes when they reach their reading goal!

PE days are Monday and Fridays, and children should arrive at school in PE kit on those days. Please remember to remove any earrings before school on PE days.

I hope you have enjoyed reading a little about our class and our exciting learning this term. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.

Miss Thomas


Rowan Class are learning all about prehistoric art.  People living in prehistoric times didn’t have access to paints, so they had to use natural objects to create marks and shapes, e.g. crushed berries, burnt wood, plants and animal fats mixed with natural pigments. So Rowan class had a go themselves after going on a nature hunt! 🌿🌱🍃
