Year Three

Mrs Man (3B) and Miss Lemard (3Y) are supported by Miss Miranda, Mrs Raut, Mrs Baraj and Miss Lomax.


At St. Helen’s we are committed to developing the whole child through a broad and balanced curriculum. We ensure that we cover all areas of the National Curriculum.

Supporting Learning at Home

We recognise the extremely important role that parents play in their child’s education. We want to work in partnership to help parents develop their skills supporting their child’s learning at home. If parents would like any support with developing home learning please see the Year 3 team.

Every week we change the children’s home reading books, as well as sending home spellings and homework for the children to learn and complete.

Homework is provided to your child every week. This homework links to work that they have been doing in class. Children have access to GSuite accounts; and as we move with the times homework in KS2 will be more increasingly set through this electronic platform. Please therefore refer to the GSuite Parent Guide to increase your confidence with how to use it when engaging with home learning. Please click here for the guide.

 Year Three Expectations

All children are assessed within different curriculum subjects against the Age Related Expectations (ARE). The ARE’s are taken from the National Curriculum but are consolidated to reflect what we expect of a child.

Teacher assessments are generally based on a variety of different sources but will generally be a combination of on-going formative assessment in class, book work and formal summative testing.

Children are classed as:

  • Working towards the expected standard
  • Working at the expected standard
  • Working above the expected standard

The curriculum in Key Stage 2 builds on the knowledge and skills that pupils have been taught at Key Stage 1. Spoken language underpins the development of pupils’ reading and writing. Reading at KS2 consists of word reading and comprehension (both listening and reading). Writing is composed of three strands: transcription (spelling and handwriting), composition (articulating ideas and structuring them in speech and writing) and vocabulary, grammar and punctuation.

Mission Week

This morning we visited Jesus at the Blessed Sacrament. We said some prayers and took time to understand the importance of prayer, showing love and kindness. We made the sign of the cross and left the small hall very quietly, feeling calm and relaxed.
