Year 3

Y3 had a fun day learning about The Stone Age to start our new topic. We made our own cave paintings and pots out of clay. We also thought about how far away in history The Stone Age actually was using a tape measure on the school field. We had to walk a long way back through history to get to The Stone Age!

Welcome to Year 3

We are very excited to welcome you all back to school and into Key Stage 2.  There will only be a morning break and you should bring a healthy snack (cheese, fruit or vegetables) to eat during this time if you so wish.  Please also remember to bring your water bottle to school each day.


We will start the term with work around a book called 'Big Thoughts For Little Thinkers' where we will be exploring a variety of different poems.  We will also be focussing on getting to know each other and team building alongside setting expectations for the year including for handwriting and presentation. 


Class 8's PE days will be on Monday and Tuesday each week and Class 7's PE days will be on Tuesday and Wednesday so please could the children ensure they have their indoor and outdoor PE kits in school on those days. These can then be taken home to be washed ready for the next week.  Children will not be permitted to wear earrings during PE lessons so please ensure that they are not wearing them on PE days or that they can remove the earrings themselves as adults are not able to help the children with this. 


Once we have heard all of the children read, we will be sending reading books home with the children and their reading card.  Please note that the expectation is that all children read for at least 15 minutes a day, 5 days a week which should be recorded on the reading card. Children are also expected to spend a minimum of 20 minutes per week using Times Tables Rock Stars online.  The Homework Topic Menu will be sent out shortly. 


After the first 2 weeks, our topic this term will be looking at the Stone Age through to the Iron Age and we have some exciting activities lined up!


Best wishes,

The Year 3 Team
