Well done for a great first term Year 3.

One more week to go until the half term holiday.

Remember it's our library visit this week.

Termly Curriculum Focus:

The Stone Age, The Bronze Age and The Iron Age

The children will be learning about prehistoric Britain through a range of tasks.

This week, we are completing the subtraction sheet from last week's lesson as in class, the children needed more consolidation on column addition. Then we will discuss problem solving. We will then complete the half term's assessment. The one attached is an alternative for you to do at home. On Friday, we will complete the adding and subtracting 2 digit and 3 digit numbers work.

Great short maths lessons to encourage thinking from Gareth Metcalfe : maths videos

Science: Identifying different types of rocks, how fossils are made and investigating soils.



Children should come to school in their PE kits. Tracksuits are advisable in cold weather as PE will be outdoors whenever possible. Trainers are essential. 

Weather and space permitting classes will do PE on these days: 



Monday and Wednesday 


Tuesday and Wednesday 


ART: both classes will do art on a Friday afternoon. If you would like your child to wear an old t-shirt, shirt or apron to protect their clothes, please send one in to keep in their locker. Please make sure they can independently put it on and take it off.



Your child has now been assessed and is on the correct colour band for their ability. 

We are collecting in reading books and records on Mondays and Thursdays. 

You may find that your child brings home a reading book that they have already read. We are doing our best to avoid this but we currently only have small class sets of each colour band in each bubble and therefore the choice is limited. 

Please try to read with your child for 10 minutes every day. Short, daily reading is the best way to help your child progress in this area. 

Please note in your child's reading record when they have read to you. 


Please take a look at these helpful questions to discuss with your child as you are reading to further their comprehension.
