Termly Learning Focus

Dear Parents and Carers,

Year 3 have settled back into school really well after the summer holidays, we are so proud of how hard they have worked this term, writing their own stories based on The Incredible Book Eating Boy and The Stone Age Boy. They have also amazed us with their knowledge of place value in maths! Across the curriculum, we have been exploring many things: Animals including Humans in Science, Invasion Games and yoga in PE and learning about The Stone Age in History. We even had the chance to look at food design in DT. The children are ready for a rest!

In Term 2 we will be learning many new things: In Literacy we are exploring the poem Summer Is Here and a non-fiction text Skeletons and Muscles. We will then use what we have learnt from the authors to write our own pieces of writing. In Maths we are continuing working on Addition and Subtraction. Once we finish this unit, we will move onto Multiplication and division.

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










Stop (percussion)

Dance & Gymnastics


How can you help your child at home? Find out some information or artwork from this terms artist “Rosa Bonheur.”

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. This year your child will come home with a library book, please enjoy it, and talk about it with your child.

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

Indoor P.E will take place on a Monday and outdoor PE on a Friday this term for both classes. Please note these days may change but you will be given notice. This term, children are expected to come to school on PE days wearing their PE kit. 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.
