Notice Board

Summer Term 1


The children have started the term well and are enjoying their unit on Chase and Adventure stories. They are going to be thinking about changing the setting to the modern day and how it would feel for a Stone Age person to visit the modern world.

We are then moving onto writing a discussion text. This will also link into our topic learning or the term. 


The children will be working on key areas of the curriculum to ensure they are secure in key concepts related to the age related expectations for the year group. These include telling the time, solving problems involving duration of events and fractions. We all also be reviewing key written methods relating to the four operations. Please ask the teachers if you would like more information on the learning for the week. 

Other topics

The topic this term is ‘It’s a Crood Life’. It focusses on the development of England, its land use and inhabitants since the start of the Stone Age to the Iron Age. 

Half Term Project

The children will be asked to make a stone circle as part of their learning in our topic unit entitled ‘It’s a Crood Life’.

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.
