Macro - Nikon have just released a 40mm macro at around £250 but I don't know a lot about that. I have the 60mm at around £350 but would prefer a longer focal length of around 105mm for a lot more.
Low light prime - Nikon 35mm f2.8 around £190
These are good recommendations.
Be careful that the Sigma 70-300 is the APO version, and also make sure that it has the built-in motor. It's not designated HSM, which makes identifying it a bit tricky.
The 35mm to look out for is the f1.8 G AF-S DX; I don't think the f2.8 (if there was one?) will AF on the D3000.
You might want to make do with the 1:2 magnification of the Sigma 70-300 rather than get a dedicated Macro lens for the moment.
Hope this helps
