The mackerel will be mummified this week as we didn’t get an opportunity to do it last week with all the fun of Maths week.  The children will learn about the process and will be writing instructions that include the correct technical vocabulary.
The children will be measuring this week using mms, cms and ms.  They will use tape measures to measure longer lengths and rulers to draw and measure lines.  This is a great opportunity for them to practice a Maths skill at home.  They could measure items in their room with a tape measure. 
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.
