Year 3

Autumn Term in Year 3


After a very busy first half term, the children of year 3 have come back refreshed and ready to learn - and what a time they have had already!


We have already enjoyed our first church worship of the year, learning all about All Saints Day.

As well as this, in RE we have started to investigate the baptism of Jesus and in doing so we will be exploring the concept of the Holy Trinity and how this impacts our lives. So many different types of exciting learning to come!


We have also had our best day of the year so far learning all about the Stone Age. We were very lucky to have someone come in and teach us all about this time in History!

We were able to make clay pots, jewellery, small spears and even learn to make fire! Amongst this jam-packed day, the children loved investigating what it was like to live on the Earth thousands of years ago. We are certainly working our way to becoming experts in this particular topic and cannot wait to continue learning about this fascinating age!



In Science, we will be linking our learning with the Stone Age and investigating all about rocks and how this can relate to so many different things that we didn't even know could relate to them!


We will be continuing to work hard in English and Maths, focusing on developing all skills in these areas. Please try to encourage your child to read for 20 minutes each day and share a story with them as often as possible.

It would also be beneficial to ask them questions after they have read to you in order to check understanding and get that comprehension in!

As well as this, timestable practice at home goes a long way as it can be used in many different aspects of the Mathematics Curriculum.



Spellings will be sent home each Friday and then the children will be tested the following Friday. It is important that children understand the importance of applying this knowledge in their independent writing as well as learning them for the tests.



PE lessons take place on Tuesdays and Thursdays - please remember to bring outdoor footwear for the lessons on Thursdays, and it may be an idea to bring warmer clothing as winter is coming!


If you have any queries please don't hesitate to ask.


I would like to remind parents that if they would like to volunteer to help in anyway, extra help is always very gratefully received.


Thank you for your continued support.
