Welcome to Year 3

Can you believe we are in our last term of year 3? I hope you enjoyed the Easter break and are ready for all the exciting challenges we have planned for this term. The following information outlines what your child will be learning.  



It is a jammed packed term in Maths with lots to cover.  We will be focusing on the following knowledge and skills through our Power Maths scheme; mass, capacity, fractions, money, time, shape and statistics. We will also continue to practice our fluency of timetables through Times Tables rock Stars so completion of TTRS homework and home practice is essential for your child’s success.  Children will also continue to have the opportunity to practice their fluency skills through core skills and tough ten. 



This term in English we will be using the book award winning book “Journey” by Aaron Becker to write an adventure story using the language of Berlie Doherty.  This wordless picture book about self-determination and unexpected friendship follows a girl who escapes through a magic door she draws on her bedroom wall. After May half term, we will then immerse ourselves in some of Shakespeare’s most loved stories in “A Stage Full of Shakespeare Stories” by Angela McAllister. After studying the classics - The Tempest, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Romeo and Juliet, Hamlet and Othello – we will write a guide for visiting the Globe Theatre in London. These will support us to build our skills in grammar, vocabulary, punctuation and composition. 


Learning Adventure – Egypt

In geography, we will be learning where Egypt is found on a map and naming the surrounding countries. We will be learning about the key physical and human features found in Egypt. In history, we will be looking at Ancient Egypt. We will be learning about Egyptian society, burial rituals and mummification. We will discover why the River Nile was so important at the time and still is today.



As budding scientists, we will learn about plants and carry out investigations. Children will learn about the different parts of a plant and their functions. They will investigate how water is transported within in plants. Children will explore how plants make their own food and investigate if they can survive without light.



Our PE lessons are on Tuesday and Friday every week. Please can PE kits be in school and labelled with your child’s name.


Water bottles 

Please can all children bring in a labelled water bottle for them to use throughout their school day.


Homework will be set on Ed Shed and will include spellings, maths and grammar. Homework will be set on Fridays and needs to be completed by the following Wednesday. There will also be Times Table Rock Stars homework set (TTRS). Your child will have their own individual login for both Ed Shed and TTRS. This will be found inside their planners which are to be taken home and brought into school every day


Please support your child to read their Accelerated Reader books for 20 minutes each day at home and log this in their planner. Planners will be checked regularly and house points will be awarded to children who reach their targets.

Planners/ Messages

Please ensure your child’s planner is in school every day. If you wish to deliver a message to me, please use the planner as a form of communication but make sure they remember to hand it to me that morning to guarantee I see the message. Alternatively, you can contact the school office, either by telephone or e-mail, and they will either pass the message to me. 

Thank you for all your support.  Mrs Pond.
