Year 3

Welcome to the Class Page of Year 3!

Welcome back to Summer Term 2! We hope you had a lovely May half term and look forward to the final half term before the children move into y4. During our time in school we will continue our work on the Enchanted Wood and begin to dive into the depths of a volcano! It is also our exciting trip half term – we can’t wait to enhance our work on the Lake District by visiting Brockholes-on- Windermere! This half term we also enjoy sports week and have the opportunity to entertain you with our garden party dance. We will also have the opportunity to enjoy the y6 end of year production before they embark on their next adventure.

As we are moving into the warmer months, please make sure children have sun-cream applied before school. They are welcome to bring more into school but will need to be independent in the application. It is also important to have a sunhat!

For more learning information, please refer to the summer newsletter below.

Mathletics will continue to be set weekly alongside spellings. PE days are a Tuesday and Friday.

Spring Term 1

Welcome back to Spring Term 1. Mrs Coar, Mrs Slattery and Mrs Todd hope you had a wonderful Christmas with family time and some rest. What an exciting Autumn Term we had – with our trip to Tatton Park, our virtual trip to Stonehenge and creating a sculpture out of biscuits. We learnt about Prehistoric times and followed the journey from the Stone Age to the Iron Age. This term will be just as exciting! With our swimming visits and dance sessions. The staff are ready to go and hope you are too! 

Our Monday PE this term will be delivered by Mr Booth and will be outside, so please remember outdoor kit and a fleece/jumper. Our Friday PE will be delivered by Alice. We will be working together to create a dance for the summer garden party! 

We ensure we listen to each child read at least once a week on a 1:1 and an additional time during group guided reading. Please make sure to send in reading books and diaries every day – we also need these to log on to the laptops for our computing lesson. It would also be fantastic if you could sign and note in reading diaries as it really does help us in school.
