11th February
We are continuing to learn about the characters and setting in the film, ‘Brave’.  The children will be writing diary entries and parts of the story using exciting and appropriate vocabulary.  They will also be learning about when they should use ‘a’ or ‘an’.
This week we will be doing the fun topic of adding money to find totals and subtracting to find change!  Any practise that the children can have in a real life context, is really helpful.  They will be more confident at working with money if they get to ‘pay’ at the shops.   
We will be completing a review of our topic, Light and dark, to assess the children’s understanding.
After half term
Our new topic will be called ‘The Active Planet’ and their homework will be linked to this.

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.
