Welcome to Year 3

Welcome to Year 3's class pages. Our teachers are Mr Marsters teaching 3JM and Miss Hovington teaching 3SH. Other staff teaching are Miss Nicholls, Miss Mattinson, and Mrs Tarrant. Below is what we are learning this half term.


We are learning about Anglo Saxons and Vikings this term. We will learn how different peoples migrated and invaded England over the period 400 - 1066 AD. The children have asked questions such as: What did the Anglo Saxons wear? What food did they eat? What were their houses like? See if you can find out. Here are some links to help you:

This Spring, the majority of Year 3 children will be going swimming at East Riding Leisure on Monday and Wednesday mornings. Please can you ensure your child is at school for 8.35 to be registered as we leave for the coach promptly afterwards. The children will be learning about water safety, water confidence and how to swim safely.

We are completing the Daily Mile with our children. This is where we are walking, jogging or running for 5 minutes a day with the goal of completing one mile. We expect all children to complete at least some of the course and improve their fitness over time. The children have started and looking forward to the call to go outside... Please could the children keep their trainers in school so they can change into them to complete the challenge.


Don't forget to access Active Learn games. These are matched to the topics children have been learning about and will help them in mastering number facts.


The children have access to a new online resource to help them practice their times tables. It is Times Tables Rock Stars. The link to the website is here: https://www.ttrockstars.com/

The children have their own login and password. You have to enter Hilderthorpe School's name first before entering the username and password. 

They will have their own rock star name they will play under and avatar ( a cartoon image that represents them). 

Once logged in, they can practice their times tables by playing in the Garage.

They can play against other players nationwide. Their real names will not be revealed as they play under their rock star name but they will receive a score in their game logged against their account which we can see.  Every time they play they earn points which means they can buy more items for their avatar.

It is meant as a fun way for the children to learn their times tables. 

Spring term Homework

Reading Please ensure your child reads at least 3 times per week to an adult. It really helps.
