Spring Term in Year 3
Wow – what an exciting start to the new term!
We flexed our learning power muscles during reverence week and have plunged head first into our new ‘China’ topic. The pupils used great absorption powers during our China experience day and showed what a thirst for knowledge they have during the activities. Here are some of the exciting activities that the children took part in during the day…
As well as composing their own traditional dragon dances, making dragon puppets, performing Tai chi and researching interesting facts about the country. We will be continuing with this topic up until half term so there is still lots more to come...
In Science, we will be learning about The Earth and Beyond followed by Mirror, Mirror in the second half term.
We will be continuing to work hard in Literacy and Numeracy 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.
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.
Times tables tests
We be introducing a times tables test each Friday - more details to follow.
If you have any queries please don't hesitate to ask.
We 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.

Welcome to Year 3!
This term we have lots of exciting learning opportunities planned for Year 3. We will be exploring the world of Roald Dahl and learning more about our class book, The BFG. We have some musicians coming into school to give us the chance to play brass instruments, there are class challenges, and we will be immersing ourselves in Stone Age life.
On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday afternoons, Mrs Brown will be teaching Year 3 and exploring all things topic related, and Mrs Singh will be teaching the children throughout the rest of the week. On Tuesdays, P.E. kit is essential for our afternoon session, but please remember that you should have full P.E. kit every day just in case it is needed.
Now we are in Year 3, the children should be practising tying their own ties and shoelaces, and they should remember to take their letters and homework home, and return them when asked. This is especially important for them to become more independent - they must pack their book bags themselves in Year 3!
If there is anything that you need to know, please just ask and we look forward to a flying start to Year 3,
Mrs Singh and Mrs Brown
