Year 3 – Dahl Class

Class Information

Year 3 Class Teacher: Mr Clarke

Welcome to Dahl Class (Year 3)

The children are taught all the main subjects from the National Curriculum. The long-term overview, which can be found below, outlines what is taught and when.


At Rosherville, we take part in ‘RED TED’. This stands for Read Every Day, Talk Every Day. It aims to encourage children to enjoy sharing a book and reading at home as much as possible.

Every child has a reading record. Each time you read at home with your child, hear them read or witness them reading independently, please sign your child’s reading record to show this.

  • Reading record signed = child earns 1 point
  • Each child can earn a maximum of 3 points per week
  • We want every child to show that they have read at least 3 times a week (3 points)

On Friday, the reading records will be checked. Every child’s points will be recorded and teachers will count every child who has read 3 TIMES that week. Teachers will share their class score and the class with the highest score will be the winners for the week and will keep the RED TED bear and trophy in their classroom.


PE will be taught every Monday and Thursday and children should come to school wearing their PE kits on these days.

PE Kit- white T-shirt with dark blue or black shorts or joggers and trainers

In terms 5 and 6 the children will be going swimming every Thursday. They will need to bring a swimming costume and towel on this day.


Communication with parents will be via Arbor and Seesaw so please keep an eye out for notifications. You will be provided with login details, but please speak to one of us if you have any difficulties.

Seesaw is a useful device for us to send out updates and reminders that are specific to our class. Although there is a messaging tool on Seesaw please contact the office to communicate urgent messages to us as we may not see them immediately.


Our timetable can be downloaded below. Here, parents and pupils have the opportunity to view the class schedule to see the day-to-day routine including the range of curriculum that is covered. We have found that children with SEND have responded well to visually seeing the structure of the day ahead.

Terms/Topic Information

Our learning this year will be based on the topics below and will change accordingly each term. Parents will receive a Topic Web, Knowledge Organiser and recommended Reads at the start of each term informing them about what the children will be learning. This will also be available below to download.

At Rosherville Church of England Academy, we have introduced ‘50 Things Before I Leave Rosherville Primary’, this helps to give children the opportunity to tick off big items throughout their primary years. The experiences and activities Year Three/Four get to complete include:

#7 Perform in a Musical Event
#14 Play an Instrument
#21 Visit a Zoo
#31 Cook Something

More Infomation about the subjects can be found on our curriculum pages.
