Termly Learning Focus


Dear Parents and Carers,

Year 3 have settled back into school, we are so proud how hard they have worked this term, writing their own story based on Wolves in the Walls. They have also amazed us with their knowledge of Fractions!

Across the Curriculum, we have been exploring many things: Animals including Humans in Science, Invasion Games in PE and creating Space inspired work in Art. We even had the chance to look at Transportation in Geography. The children are ready for a rest!

In Term 6 we will be learning many new things:

In Literacy we are exploring the texts ‘Theseus and the Minotaur’ and ‘My Strong Mind’. We will then use what we have learnt from the authors to write our own narrative and informative piece of writing.

In Maths we are continuing working on Time. Once we finish this unit, we will move onto Properties of Shape.

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



Art/Design Technology



Forces and Magnets


The Bronze and Stone Age

Structures and Mechanisms

Let your Spirit Fly



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 this term is Spelling Shed, TT Rockstars and Reading, each 3 X a week. Homework engagement is checked every Friday by an adult in their class. If children do not complete a part of their homework they will receive a strike, 3 strikes will result in a lunch detention. Homework club for Y3 is Monday 3.30 – 4.20.


P.E will take place on a Friday this term for both classes. Please note these days may change but you will be given notice.

PE Kit 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.
