Year 3 - Rowan

Welcome to Year 3 - Rowan!


Our teacher is Mrs Zimnoch and our teaching assistant is Mrs Dolman.

We also work with Mrs Laughlin and Mrs Dost for some subjects. 

There are 30 children in our class - 13 boys and 17 girls.


British Values 


As part of British Values, we will be learning about democracy, mutual respect and tolerance. We will encourage children to make decisions together, think about the importance of accepting, respecting and valuing feelings and views of others. We will be talking about similarities and differences, and how these should be celebrated. Children will be encouraged to develop their self-confidence and self-esteem, and to express their needs and opinions.


We will discuss the importance of having rules and routines and how they contribute to making our community a safe and happy environment. We will think about our actions and how to make good choices. Our Behaviour Ambassador will choose a weekly 'behaviour star' to celebrate this.


In year 3 Rowan we will be working TOGETHER as:

It is literally true that you can succeed best and quickest by helping others to succeed.”

Napoleon Hill

Homework is set every Friday to be returned by the following Tuesday.  Children are given a piece of English and a piece of Maths work to consolidate their learning in class.  At times there may be homework related to other aspects of the curriculum.  There will also be some research topics to find out about at different times of the year. On Mondays children will be given a list of words to practise at home for our spelling test. Please support your child with their homework and encourage them to try their best.  Thank you!




Reading Olympics

As part of our Reading Olympics we encourage children to read daily at home.  Please support your child to read on a daily basis and sign their Reading Journals.  We aim to hear all of the children read in class through individual and guided reading.

Creative Curriculum

Our topics enable us to develop and apply knowledge and skills in different areas of the curriculum, such as history, geography and art.  These lessons take place during the afternoon.  Where possible, we go on educational visits or invite visitors in, so that we develop our learning and understanding more.  These are the topics that we will be covering each half-term.
