A typical week in year three is action packed and full of fun.

To stop your teachers feeling glum.

Take a peek at the list below.

Then we will all be ready to go.

Monday -  Reading book please.  Out door games kit.  The children will come home in this.

Tuesday - Indoor PE kit and reading book please.

Wednesday - Stationery shop is open (prices up to £1) and reading book please.

Thursday - Outdoor games kit or swimming kit (and waterproof coat), reading book and completed homework please.

Friday- Reading book please.


Spellings- A list of words for the half term is given out at the start of each half term.  If the list has been lost, a new list can be found in the attachments below. 

Reading - Children are expected to read at home at least three times per week.  They can choose a book from home or can take a book from the classroom.  They also have logins to the Bug Club Website where specific books will be allocated to them.  When they have read these books, there are questions for them to answer regarding what they've read.  Please be aware that the teachers can access the children's responses to questions to check for understanding.  Children are given a day for them to change their books each week and we hope they will change them on a weekly basis.

Pleae make sure your reading diary is in school on the correct day for teachers to check.


During Summer 1 we are finding out about the magical land of Narnia and the adventures of Peter, Susan, Edmund and Lucy, meet a famous lion and find out just how cruel the White Witch can be.

After half term we are going to be reading the classic Peter Pan and join Wendy, Peter and Tinkerbell on their adventures in Neverland.


This term we shall be investigating plants and how they grow, followed by a trip to Lunt Fort to introduce our historical Roman topic.

Please look out for details of our work with the RSPCA in June and ways you may be able to help us.



Children will be getting maths homework this term.  Mrs Hardwick's set will not get any paper homework but will be expected to work on the two websites below to help improve their times tables and number bonds.

In class we will be concentrating on formal methods and using those methods to solve problems and use reasoning skills.


PE - 3G and 3R will be having hockey coaching from Sue walsh from ESBC for the first couple of weeks for their outdoor PE lessons followed by sessions led by their teachers.  They are also being introduced to Yoga and mindfulness.

As the warm weather continues we will be holding our 3/4 sports day and also several inter class sports competitions including tug of war, rounders and penalty shoot outs.

Please make sure your child has a sun hat and water bottle in school.  Some of the Y3 classrooms get incredibly warm in the summer months.

Our new spelling list for Summer 1 is below if you have mislaid your copy.
