29th October
We will be introducing the children to our new text, ‘Mr Penguin and the Lost Treasure’ by Alex T Smith.  It is a great book full of adventure and fun.  The children will be exploring the first few chapters this week, understanding the characters and identifying key vocabulary. 
The children will be measuring time this week.  They will re-cap on o’clock, half past, quarter past and quarter to.  Please can we ask that you take this opportunity to talk about time telling at home.  With the clocks changing, it would be helpful if you could get them to read any clocks you have at home and challenge them to think of what the time would be an hour later, an hour before etc.
We will be continuing with learning about the Ancient Egyptians. The fish will continue to be mummified!
Please can you read with your child at home as often as possible, ideally at least four times a week.  This can have a really positive impact on the progress they make with all of their learning.  Also can the children please bring in their reading records every day as we need them to record that guided reading has taken place.

Please remember that the children have PE on a Monday and a Tuesday so they need their kit.

Welcome to Year 3!

We have two classes called Ruby and Carnelian. The teachers are Miss Smith, Mrs Spiller, and Mrs Swinyard. Mrs Atkins  will be doing PPA cover for Tuesdays with Ruby class. Also working in the classes as Learning Support Assistants are Mrs Boman, Mrs Currie and Mrs Robbins.

Click below for the link to our curriculum map. Each term will start with a ‘Big Bang’ to excite the children for the learning to come and will end with a celebration of their achievements. This may be sharing work with another year group, a celebration class assembly or a special event.


The children will be shown how to change their own reading books and they can change their books on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays break times and lunchtimes.

Each class will have two PE sessions a week which will be on Tuesdays and Fridays. One of these sessions will be outside so your child will need trainers and warm clothing such as a track suit.

Homework will be given on a Friday each week and needs to be returned on Thursdays, unless there is a change to the timetable. Your child will receive a spelling sheet where they will explore a given spelling pattern or spelling rule. Maths homework will continue to be practising their maths skills ready for their ‘Buzz Time’ challenge every Thursday. They will be challenged on number bonds and times tables skills. This will be differentiated for each child dependent on their skill level.

‘Buzz Time’ challenge every Thursday. They will be challenged on number bonds and times tables.
