Welcome back to Spring term!

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Year 3 Spring Term. Feel free to browse our class page to see what we have been learning in our classroom.

Enjoy our new website!

Miss Heffernan.

Our class topic this term is Rainforest Explorers.

In this topic, children will take a closer look at

  • The tropical rainforests and where in the world they can be located.

  • The rainforest climate, weather and

  • The 4 different layers

  • Different plant and animal life that can be found in the rainforest.

  • Explore some of the conservation issues surrounding the destruction of rainforest habitats.

Year 3 will also have a special visitor from Animals Take over on Monday 13th March- Keep a look out for the photographs.

We are also reading Running Wild by Michael Morpurgo


World Book Day.

During World Book Week, we looked at the book ‘The Great Kapok Tree’ by Lynne Cherry. It was a great book to use to start off our exciting new topic. We looked closely at the different animals we meet along the way. The children loved drawing their own Rainforest Animals to create a magical walkway into our classroom. What an awesome week!


School Day

The juniors’ school day starts at 8.50am and ends at 3.10pm.

Snack Time

The junior children can continue to buy their snack each day at break with a choice of toast – 20p per slice, Milkshake – 40p, Aqua Juice – 30p, Fruit Juice – 25p and Fruit 30p. If they wish to do so, children can bring their own healthy snack instead.


This term children will be swimming on a Tuesday afternoon. Please ensure your child brings a big bag to fit all of their items in. Please make sure children wear appropriate swimwear and girl must not wear any jewellery.


Over the course of this term, we will set weekly homework. The homework will be linked to a skill the children have learnt that week.

The homework provides children with the opportunity to practice skills and keep parents/carers informed on what it is we're doing throughout the week. Children will receive their homework every Thursday and must return it back to school - completed, on the following Tuesday.
