In the links above you will find out all about the exciting learning that is yet to come this half term! Please have a browse.


Below you will find important information regarding your child's PE time slot and information on reading.


At the bottom of the page you will find the children's class blog- A weekly update of all the exciting things that happen within Year 3! Enjoy!


Reading Books

Every child in Year 3 will have a reading book and we encourage them to read with an adult at home. We will visit the library weekly and children will bring home their choice of a library book. Please ensure that their reading books and reading records are in school each and every day as we will be reading with each child throughout the week. Every time a child reads with an adult, they will receive a stamp on their reading chart, which will earn them certificates and book prizes.


P.E Days

Year 3 will have PE once a week, however, the day may change. Please ensure that your child has their P.E kit at school every day. Hair should be tied up and earrings MUST be removed on these days. Your child will not be able to join in with P.E if they have earrings in.

We continue to read How to Train Your Dragon in English. We have used the film to inspire our writing. We described the scene where Hiccup meets Toothless for the first time. We all laughed when Hiccup was so scared and shocked he his legs wobbled like jelly and he fell to the ground!


We heard a song that taught us about verbs and adverbs which was fun! VB


In Maths we have been continuing to subtract using the column method and exchanging of the numbers. We have also been using Base 10 to help us exchange. GB


In Art, we have been drawing one half of a characters face. These characters are from How to Train Your Dragon. We drew Toothless the dragon. MS


As part of our ‘Black History Month’ topic, we read a book written by Rochelle Humes, who is a former singer in The Saturdays. She now is a T.V and radio presenter. Rochelle is married to a member of JLS. She wrote her own book after her daughter asked why there were no characters in stories that looked like her. AS
