Welcome to Year 3! 

 

Our forest school sessions are taking place every Tuesday until the end of term. Please ensure your child has suitable clothing for all weather e.g. waterproof coat, wellies and tracksuit bottoms. Children can come in to school in their forest school clothing. 

 

 

Please have a look at our gallery below. Photos are uploaded so you can see what your child has been doing in class. 

 

Thank you to everyone that attended our Collective Worship 'Jesus' Journey to Jerusalem'. The children did a fantastic job of telling the story and enjoyed a reflection about how we can give ourselves to Jesus. 

 

Summer Term

This term we will be going back in time to visit the Romans! We will be learning all about who the Romans were, when they lived and what happened when they invaded Britain. We will also look at what the Romans did for us.

In Science we will be studying Light. The children will explore light practically by looking for and creating shadows using sunlight and torches

Our Come and See topics this tem are Energy, Choices and Special Places.

 

Spring Term

We really enjoyed our Stone Age topic in the first half of Spring Term!

We will now be exploring rainforests. The children will be using their geography skills to locate rainforests and discover the climate, vegetation and look at the threats and effects. 

Our Come and See Topics this term are Journeys, Listening & Sharing and Giving All

 

Autumn Term

We really enjoyed reading Fantastic Mr Fox! We did lots of work on healthy eating and looked at what food groups give us nutrients.

We also tested and designed our own bread and made it from scratch. Well done everyone they were delicious!

This half term we will be studying the seas and oceans. The children will be developing their mapping skills and exploring the depths of the ocean.

Our class book will be Flotsam by David Wiesner. This is a beautiful picture book that has an imaginative twist about what we might see under the sea. 

Our Come and See topics this term are Homes, Promises and Visitors.

Homework

It is important that your child reads at home every night. We will send home a levelled reading book once a week and they will also have access to Bug Club - www.activelearnprimary.co.uk. Also encourage your child to read books of their choice at home. 

Children will receive a spelling book which should be completed at home. We will teach a lesson on the Monday based on the spelling rule and they will have a spelling test on a Friday. 

We will also send home times tables for you to practise with your child. 

Snack

This year the children bring their own money for snack. They can choose toast, pancakes, fruit or snack bars. We advise that your child brings their money in a purse or wallet to avoid them losing it.
