Welcome to Parkdale Primary School Moving Forward, Learning Together

Year 3 – Rowan & Elm

Welcome to 3 Elm and 3 Rowan!


Mrs Carter, Miss Godfrey and Mrs Troop

would like to welcome you to Year 3's website page.


This term our topic is Ancient Greece. We will be starting this topic with some mapwork - looking at Europe as a continent, locating some of its biggest countries and plotting Greece on a map. We will be learning about the main differences between Greece and the UK and then going back in time to understand why Ancient Greece was such a powerful influence on other civilisations. Sparta and Athens were the 2 main regions of Ancient Greece - we will study these, as well as homelife, theatre, battles, Gods and Goddesses and Greek Myths. In art we will be exploring Greek pattern and textiles. Whereas in DT we will be using sewing techniques to join and fasten fabrics.  Reading continues to be a whole school priority this year - with lots of fun activities and class texts to enjoy. Please encourage your child to read at home as much as possible and sign their diary to let us know how they are getting on. See some of our favourite books below....

                                               Reading in Year 3




This year across the whole school, we are having a big focus on Reading. The children will be working with various adults in Year 3 to improve their word decoding and comprehension skills. The whole school are taking part in a 'Read at Home' competition. The children with the highest number of "reads at home", each half term, will be entered into a prize draw.


Fabulous Homework in 3 Elm

Pupils have enjoyed presenting some of their wonderful pieces of homework.  We have been very impressed with the creativity and imagination pupils have shown throughout their work.  We certainly had great fun playing some of ancient Egyptian inspired board games and puzzles.
