Meet the Year 3 Team


Mrs Pitt  3A


Hi, I’m Mrs Pitt and in my spare time I enjoy watching anything Disney, Marvel or Star Wars with my son, while eating popcorn and chocolate. I love reading books on my Kindle especially when sitting on a beach. My favourite food is anything I haven't got to cook for myself and also chocolate brownies! When I was in school I loved Maths and Science. I was also part of the school choir and went to Austria to sing. During my time in school I was always involved in the school productions, my favourite one was Joseph and the Amazing Technicolour Dream Coat. While I was training to be a teacher. I worked in my local Tesco and on the switchboard in the Royal Gwent Hospital. If I wasn’t a teacher, I would have liked to have taken my British Sign Language lessons further and become a translator. 


Miss Morgan - 3B 

Hello, I’m Miss Morgan! Here is a little bit about me!

On weekends I really enjoy going for long walks in the countryside with my husband Des and my son Joe. I love swimming and have done ever since I was very young. I have been lucky enough to have visited quite a lot of countries but my favourite has to be Egypt. The pyramids were an awesome sight. I enjoy watching films with my family, especially Harry Potter and when I have time, I love to read a good book! I think David Walliams is a fabulous children’s author and one of my favourite books is ‘Mr Stink’. When I was younger I enjoyed music lessons and leant to play the cornet. Even when I was a little girl I wanted to be a teacher and would often line my teddies up and take the register! I went straight from school to university and started my first teaching job in London. Three years later I came back to Wales and started my job at our school and have been here ever since! If I wasn’t a teacher I would want to be a vet as I love all kinds of animals. 


What will we be learning throughout the year?


Spring Term - Best of British’.



During the Spring term, for Language, Literacy and Communication, we will be looking at developing handwriting styles. The children will be given plenty of opportunity to use their imagination when retelling stories, whilst also using correct punctuation.

For Maths and Numeracy, we will be having fun playing lots of games to help us learn our times tables, number bonds and place value.

In this topic children will be investigating and carrying out lots of activities centred around the Geography and History of Great Britain. We will be using atlases and online resources to locate places of interest. This will include capital cities and landmarks. We will be looking at British traditions and values and how things have changed over the years. We will be exploring accents across Britain and investigating why they vary from place to place. The children will be given the opportunity to research the members of the British Royal Family, both past and present.  The children will be given the chance to go on board SS Great Britain and design their own suspension bridge based on the work of Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

As part of our 'Set for Life' work, the children will be given the opportunity to learn how to read maps. They will be asked to plan routes and calculate distances between places of interest. We will also be investigating food groups and healthy balanced diets. 


Our Class Books:






What pupils say about being in Year 3.

  • "We love doing our mini missions."
  • "I like having a special classroom job."
  • "I do research on an iPad to help me with my work." 


PE Days


Throughout the year children will take part in weekly PE sessions to keep themselves active and healthy. During these sessions, children will practise their agility, ball skills, coordination and balance. We will also be working as part of a team during team games! 



  • We would like the children to bring their P.E. kit in a bag, which can be left in school for the half term.
  • We also ask that any jewellery is removed before PE days.


Now that you are in Year 3


How can you help at home?


  • Take a visit to a local beach to see if you can spot any sea creature habitats! Visit the National Museum Cardiff to find out about the history of the sea. Take steps to save water in and around your home. 
  • You can be a part of the School Council where you will help make important decisions for the school.
  • You can be a part of the Eco Council where you can help think of ideas of how we can be more environmentally friendly.
  • You can be a Digital Leader where you will be given the opportunity to be responsible for the iPads in your classroom and ICT equipment from around the school.
  • At the end of the day it is lovely to hear about all the exciting things that the children have been doing in school. Ask them to tell you about what they have found interesting or their favourite lesson that day. 
  • To help develop your child’s love of reading, why not share a book before bedtime or ask them to help while you read a younger sibling a bedtime story? Books are so important and need to be shared and enjoyed.

Extra Information
