Termly Learning Focus


Dear Parents and Carers,

Term 1 was a fantastic term in Year 3, we are so proud of how the children are adapting to the new normal. We enjoyed reading ‘The Star in the Jar’ and produced our own versions of the story. In Maths, we revisited ‘place value and number’ with great success.

Across the curriculum we explored maps and learned some important mapping skills in Geography, and in Science we studied ‘Living things and their habitats’ we enjoyed going outside to look at real life science and found many living things in their habitats on the field.

This term we will be learning many new things:

In Literacy we are exploring the poem ‘Autumn is here’ and the book ‘True story: 3 Little Pigs’ by J.Scieszka and using what we learn from the authors to write our own Autumn poem and alternative ending for a fairy tale.

In maths we are working hard at Multiplication and Division, and understanding Shape.

Across the rest of the curriculum, we are growing our learning in:



Art/Design Technology






Stone Age

Coin collecting

Media: Animation

Playing the violin



Daily reading at home remains an important part of your child’s learning and is essential if your child is to progress across the curriculum. Reading journals must be in school every day so adults can use them to record when they read with the children. Children are required to complete the child’s comments section.

Homework engagement will be checked every Friday by an adult in their class. Homework this term will continue to just be Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Reading 3X a week.

P.E will take place on a Tuesday afternoon and Friday afternoon this term for both classes. On a Tuesday children are required to come into school in their PE kit, they will not need uniform to get changed into. They will only need trainers on a Friday as it is a shorter active session. 

Please note these days may change but you will be given notice.

In case of timetable changes P.E kits are required by all children daily every week. This consists of a pair of trainers/plimsolls, a different white t-shirt other than their school t-shirt, dark coloured shorts/jogging bottoms and a jumper. Children with long hair will be expected to tie it up for PE due to health and safety reasons and children with earrings should ensure that they are removed on PE days.
