Key Information



We will post all relevant information for Year 3 pupils on this page. 

P.E DaysTuesday - Outdoor Adventurous Activities (oudoor) and

                    Friday - Sports Day Skills (outdoor). 

                    Children wear P.E kit to school on these days

Mile run - three times a week on the days the children are not doing P.E. Wear or bring in trainers on

                 these days.

Library day - Friday (children can take out 2 books - one to remain in school and one for home)

Spot/home reading books - children can change these as soon as they have completed the book.  Please try and listen to your child read at least 3 times a week as this will have a huge impact on the progress they make. Discussing the book will also help them to develop their understanding of the text they are reading.

Spellings - a hard copy is given to the children on Wednesdays. Spelling tests take place the following Tuesday. Any support you can provide in helping your child learn their spellings is greatly appreciated. We will also update their spellings on this page.

Our text driver this half term is 'The Boy Who Grew Dragons' by Andy Shepherd.
The main character Tomas discovers a strange old tree at the bottom of his Grandad's garden but he doesn't think much of it. He takes the funny fruit from the tree back into the house and gets the shock and delight of his life when a tiny dragon hatches!

The children will be writing a balanced argument, a diary entry and a shape poem.

Maths and TTRs



For this half term, we will be continuing with 'Time' (telling time to the nearest minute and converting between analogue and digital) before moving onto 'Geometry - Properties of shape'. 

After these two topics, we will move onto measuring Mass (kg/g) and Capacity (l/ml) and again, the children will learn how to convert these measurements.

In addition to their learning at school, we ask that you encourage your child to spend time each week on 'TT Rockstars' to ensure they improve their knowledge of the times tables and the speed in which they are able to recall them. 'Topmarks' is another free program which also helps in the learning of the times tables and many children enjoy using this program.
