Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

You will be greeted by:

Mrs L Steventon – Teacher

Mrs K Sawyer  – Teaching Assistant

When the children enter Year 3, this is the start of their Key Stage 2 journey. We ensure that our children are always Ready, Respectful and Safe as well as developing independence and individuality. In Year 3 we reinforce strong foundations and extend the learning across the lower Key Stage Two Curriculum. Children build on core knowledge and skills along with a variety of Enquiry Projects, enhanced by plentiful opportunities for outdoor and cross curricular learning. Our Enquiry Projects ensure that children learn about the wider world and apply key skills within an interesting focus. Within this stimulating learning environment, differentiated learning activities meet the abilities of all children while promoting a love of learning.


Homework at John Randall is based on supporting our learning in the classroom.

Our most important piece of homework is READING (Reading takes you places!)  Reading is at the heart of everything we do, so we need to use Practice Panda to get better at this skill!  The more you read, the more you succeed!

Adults, please read with your child, 3 times per week (or more if you can!)  3 Parents signatures in the reading diary is worth 15 Dojos!

Time Tables Rockstars! Again, Practice Panda and Memory Magpie this time!  When you know your Times Tables, you can make so many links and Maths simply gets easier!

Finally, weekly spellings.

We do not set a lot of homework, but we do ask that we make these activities an important part of our home/school life!

I am out on the playground every morning for a quick chat or you can contact me via email:


Team Building

Year 3 enjoyed working together making marshmallow towers as part of their team building challenges.

Times Tables Rock Star

Thank you to all the parents who joined us for our launch of Times Tables Rock Star in school. 


Children combined their computing and English skills to take notes from websites to use when writing a non-chronological report about France.

Science Week

Student in year 3 spent the week revisiting the scientist, Mary Anning, by making and digging up fossils! What a great week studying science!

Local Walk

Year 3 loved going on a local walk around Madeley, following an ordnance survey map, finding human and physical features, and learning about the town’s history from Miss Guess!
