Year 3

Welcome back to our final term in year 3! J


I hope you have all had a wonderful break and are all ready and excited to get stuck in with the summer term.


We are really excited to start our wonderful new topic all about Natural Disasters and even have a brilliant trip planned to the Natural History Museum on 17th May where we will be learning all about Earthquakes and Volcanoes in a hands-on workshop. Children and staff alike are extremely excited!


In Science we are starting with a topic of light and dark and will be investigating why we need light to see, how darkness is the absence of light and all about shadows (including how they are formed and the patterns in the way that the size and shape changes).


In English we will be studying a range of genres using interesting texts. We will be polishing off our spelling, punctuation and grammar skills that we have learnt so far this year and learning new skills to improve our writing even further!


In Maths we will be covering all areas of the maths curriculum including measurement, number and place value, addition and subtraction, multiplication and division, statistics, fractions and properties of shapes.

Please remember that at break times you are allowed to bring in a healthy snack (no crisps/chocolate/nuts). Please also remember to bring in a named water bottle every day, especially as the weather is starting to get warmer. With the warmer weather this also brings the need of a sunhat and sun cream (that they can apply themselves) for break, lunch and PE. Summer dresses can be worn or polo shirts, instead of a shirt and tie as well.


Please also ensure that you have a named PE kit in school ALL week, including trainers as most of our PE will be outside on the field.

Homework due: Wednesdays

Homework set: Fridays

Show and Tell: Thursdays (see window for house rota)


Please write a note in the reading record if you would like to come and see me or to pass on important information.


Thank you,

Miss Burr J
