Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!

The Summer Term is here!

This Summer term in Year 3:


In Maths we will be focusing on the topics of fractions, money, time, properties of shape and statistics.

In English, we will be writing our own non-chronological reports, fables, diary entries and persuasive letters. 


We have lots of exciting questions to answer in our other lessons too!


History: How different were the beliefs in Ancient Egypt?

Geography: Are all settlements the same?

RE: How do people make moral decisions? What difference does being a Muslim make to daily life?

Science: How does each part of the plant fulfil its function?


We will also have lots of exciting projects this Summer term!


In DT we will be constructing castles.

In art we will be creating Ancient Egyptian scrolls.

In computing we will be journeying inside a computer and then learning how to keep safe online. 

In PSHE we will be thinking about safety and the changing body.

In music we will learn to sing and play along with the song 'Bringing Us Together' and listen to and appraise other music.

In Spanish we will learn how to present ourselves to others and talk about our family.


PE kit

Our PE day is on Wednesday,  please can children come to school wearing their full PE kit on this day each week. This is a white top and school burgundy shorts with trainers. When the weather is cold, pupils may wear a plain tracksuit.


Forest School

Forest school will take place on Wednesday mornings. Please can we ask that children bring a change of footwear and socks, wellies are preferable but any spare footwear will do. This will ensure that all the children can enjoy these sessions whatever the weather outside and have warm and dry footwear to change back into afterwards.



Weekly spelling words are sent home on a Monday in your child's reading diary . We learn these words and spelling patterns throughout the week, but practising them at home can help to embed these spellings, ensuring your child can consistently use them within their writing.


Mathletics homework is set on a Friday each week and should be completed for the following Friday. All children who complete this earn an extra break on a Friday afternoon. If it has not been completed, this time is an opportunity where we can support children in completing the work. 


We also ask that reading is completed five times a week, for at least five minutes and recorded in their reading diary. Children may read to themselves, but we ask that their reading diary is still signed by an adult. They can choose to read any book that they are interested in and enjoy reading. 


We look forward to a really exciting Summer Term ahead!


Mrs Fern and Mrs Sheppard.
