Welcome to 3PS!This is us!


Our teacher is Mr Stamper and our teaching assistant is Mrs Newall. Together they help us to learn lots of new and exciting skills in all areas of school life!

Our Christian Value for this term is: 


Wisdom - Using our own knowledge and experiences to make the right choices in life

In our English lessons at the moment, we are learning lots from an explanation text about Tutankhamen! We will be writing our very own explanation texts about him soon.


We also read every day, and we try our best to read at home too! Please help us to get lots of reading done outside of school, so that our reading skills get better and better!


After lunch, every day, we spend some time practising our joined up handwriting, and our spellings. Please help your child to practice their spellings every day!

Reading Buddies with Year 6

In maths, we are currently learning new methods for our calculations. We've been using: 

  • The expanded column method to add and subtract (up to) 3-digit numbers to (up to) 3-digit numbers.
  • The grid method for multiplying (up to) 2-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers.
  • Repeated addition and 'chunking' on a number line to solve division problems.


Please encourage your child to practice these methods whenever possible, and also to practice their mental arithmetic at every opportunity (e.g. Whilst out shopping!!)

Creating Multiplication Word Problems


In our science lessons this term we are learning about plants. Each table has its own potted plants that they are responsible for. Over the coming weeks we will be performing lots of experiments on our plants to get a better understanding of how they work!



Our Learning Challenge


'Who was Tutankhamen's Mummy?'


Year 3 have been absolutely thrilled by this Learning Challenge so far, and have already discovered lots of exciting things about Ancient Egypt. We will be visiting the museum and looking at how the Egyptians used to live, as well as trying our hand at some Egyptian art!




Other Areas of Learning


  • In ICT, we have all become 'bug fixers!' - using the coding program Scratch, we have been busy identifying problems with simple programs, and have fixed them by changing some of the codes! It may sound quite tricky, but 3PS have proved experts...even beating Mr Stamper and Mrs Newall to the solutions!!
  • In RE we are building up to Easter by learning about and reflecting on the different stories that took place around this important time.
  • In PE, we have been developing our sports skills with Mr Goodhall, as well as learning about Dance with Mr Stamper!

The Great Arnot St. Mary Bake Off

We recently competed in our school-wide baking competition, organised by our fabulous catering Crew, and judged by our very own Mary Berry (Mrs Roper)! Unfortunately, 3PS didn't win, but we had loads of fun dressing in our baking gear, mixing the ingredients for the cake, decorating it in class, and of course, eating it!! You can find some photos of us making our cake below, as well as a special video of us decorating it! Can you guess who's face we put on it??
