Year Three Newsletter


Welcome to Year 3!

This year, we have lots of exciting topics planned. Our first theme is ‘The Land Before Time’ where we will be looking at the stone age. We are hoping to book a workshop on the Stone Age by the end of the first half term. 

After half term, we will be studying rocks and volcanoes in science. There will also be a science fair in November where pupils will present their projects about volcanoes to parents.   

Sleepover – There will be a sleepover at school for year 3 in September 2018. 

Swimming – Swimming lessons will be on Monday afternoons. You will be notified if your child is going swimming, as not all groups will be able to swim at the same time. Reminder: Boys need to bring swimming trunks not shorts, girls need to bring a one-piece swim suit. All pupils need to remember to bring a swimming cap and towel. 

PE – Pupils who are not going swimming will have PE on Monday afternoons. Please ensure that they bring in their P.E kit and trainers.

Literacy – Writing and guided reading will be linked to our themes and we will be writing a range of purposes and audiences e.g. stories, letters, diaries.

Numeracy – We will learning about place value and using the 4-number operations.

Homework – Homework will be handed out on Fridays and returned to their class teacher on Wednesdays. Please support your child in remembering to complete their homework to a high standard and handing it in on time. To support pupils’ growing independence, in year 3, they are expected to change their own home readers.

We look forward to seeing you in September!
