Welcome to Year 3! 



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. 


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. 



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 - 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. 


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.
