Welcome to Combs Ford Primary School

Welcome to the Year Three page!

In Kestrels and Owls classes we aim to develop a love of learning through a rich and varied curriculum. Mrs Knowland and Mrs Dew are the teachers in Kestrels class and Miss Plowman is the teacher in Owls class. The children are supported by Mrs Styles and Mrs Berry, our teaching assistants.

Autumn term 2020

This half term, we are asking children to come to school in their PE kits on days when they have PE. Until October half term, this will be Tuesday and Thursday for both Owls and Kestrels classes. All of our PE lessons will be outside, so make sure you are dressed appropriately for the weather! 

Star Reader Initiative

We have recently introduced the Star Reader initiative in years three and four to encourage reading at home. You can find out more about it here. 

 

Times Table Mountain

In year three, we build on the times tables facts that the children have begun to learn in Key Stage One. Being able to recall times tables facts is a really useful skill that the children will use throughout year three and beyond. Knowing these facts will make other aspects of maths much easier! To help practise our times tables, this year we have been using the Times Table Mountain. You can read more about it here.

 

Swimming

In Year Three (usually in the Spring & Summer terms) we take the children swimming at the local leisure centre - this is a vital life skill and our aim is for all children to be able to swim by the the end of the year!
