Year 3: Hepworth class

Of a middle-class family from the West Riding of Yorkshire, Barbara Hepworth was born in Wakefield on 10 January 1903. She trained in sculpture at Leeds School of Art (1920-1) and, on a county scholarship, at the Royal College of Art (1921-4).  Her work exemplifies Modernism and in particular modern sculpture.

In Year 3 children have the opportunity to write in many different formats, have guided reading daily, visit the school library to get a book to take home as well as consolidating and progressing their learning in maths through number, shape, data handling and problem solving.

Reading books are taken home every afternoon and are brought back to school every morning. We encourage the children to read with an adult every night. To support maths you could help them practice their mental maths and times tables.

PE will take place on Wednesday mornings. Children need a plain white t-shirt and blue jogging bottoms or shorts to change into, as well as suitable footwear (plimsolls or trainers).

Homework is given out once a week on a Friday and will be due in the following Friday. If children are finding it difficult, discuss this with the teacher.

Year 3 will perform an assembly about the things they have been learning in class. Parents are welcome to attend.


  • P.E. lessons are on Wednesdays and Thursdays.
  • Please return books every morning in book bags.
