Welcome to Year 3

TAs: Mrs Waller and Mrs Kumar


Welcome back!


I hope you all had a lovely Easter break and are feeling refreshed.  I can’t quite believe we’re already in the summer term! It’s so lovely to have the chance to spend a full year with the children at last. This is what we will be getting up to over the next few weeks.



Our focus now is on multiplication, division and fractions. We will also be looking at Time.



In English, we will be looking at adventure stories and legends and writing persuasive letters based on The Day the Crayons Quit and looking at the non-fiction text Atlas of Adventures.



In our Science lessons, we will be investigating Animals and Other Humans.


Year Three will now have their PE lessons every Wednesday afternoon and on Thursday mornings.  This term, we are really lucky to have our PE specialist Mrs Bedwell joining us to teach Gymnastics and Athletics.


This will be handed out every Wednesday and will consist of a spelling/ handwriting and a Maths activity. This will help to consolidate children’s learning. The homework will then need to be handed back in the following Monday.


Children will be given a designated day to read with an adult at school.  Their books will be changed on that day provided that they have read them with an adult at home.  Just to remind you that as a school we expect the children to read their school books at home three or more times each week.  Please sign the reading record provided.

If you have any questions or queries, please do not hesitate to contact me. 

I’m looking forward to a great Summer term.

Mrs Strugnell
