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.


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.

Year 3 Weekly Update

Tuesday 26th May 2020

This week in English we have watched this clip (Something fishy): Then we described the characters using expanded noun phrases, similes, personification and alliteration. We will then plan and write our own portal story. Think about; where will the story begin? What would the portal look like? Where would the portal take them? Who would they meet?

In Science we will be looking at plants – There are some good power points on Twinkl, that will help you to label and describe the jobs of the different parts of the plants using Scientific language. You could then make your own information poster/booklet.

In Maths this week we have been looking at time. Starting with knowing how many months in a year, days in a month, year and leap year. We will then read and write the time both on a digital and analogue clock to the nearest 5 minutes.


Celebrations, Festivals and National Events

From 28th-30th May it is Shavuot. Shavuot is a Jewish festival celebrated 50 days after the first day of Passover. It is a period of commemoration to remember the day that God provided the Torah to His people on Mount Sinai. Shavuot is also known to be a Harvest Festival, as a former tradition was for Jewish people to bring Bikkurim (the first and finest fruits) to the Temple in Jerusalem as a gift to God.


On May 31st it is Whitsun. Whitsun celebrates the Christian festival of Pentecost which occurs on the seventh Sunday after Easter when Anglican and Methodist communities commemorate the descent of the Holy Spirit on the disciples of Jesus after his ascension from earth to heaven on Ascension Day. Have a great week and we hope to see you soon!
