We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable summer break, and we would like to welcome the children into year 3.
The autumn term is always a busy time for children in Year 3 with lots of new learning taking place as well as consolidating previously learnt skills. In our science work we will be studying animals including Humans; our History this term will be learning about the Stone Age and our Art planning will focus on creating cave painting to link with our History topic. English and Mathematics will continue to be taught daily and focus on key writing skills and mathematical calculations.
For more details about our learning this term click on the Autumn Term Curriculum Overview.
Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn on PE days, Children may be asked to remove earrings before PE sessions.
Year 3 PE sessions are:
Monday – Gym / Dance
Thursday – Multi sports (games)
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times; PE kits can be purchased from the school office. Can we also remind parents that children will need pumps included in their indoor PE kit and trainers included in their outdoor PE kits; children may also want to have some warmer clothes for outdoor P.E. as we move into autumn and winter. Children can bring a piece of fruit to school for their morning snack, which they can enjoy during reading time.
Year 3 homework will consist of weekly spellings and home reading. Maths and English homework will be handed out on alternative weeks. Half-termly family project homework linked to humanities or science will also be given out.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact school.
We anticipate a busy and exciting term ahead and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support.

To bring an end to our Roman History topic this term, class 3 were lucky enough to visit Shrewsbury Museum and Art Gallery where they thoroughly enjoyed hands on experience with real Roman artefacts and become real life Romans. This included a number of activities such as dressing up as the Roman's did, marching as Roman soldiers and discovering many different remains that have been found in Britain to come to their own conclusion about how they lived their lives. Thank you Class 3 for a wonderful day of joy and representing our school so beautifully!
Year 3 gave an excellent performance to the whole school and a full house of family, that included playing of the ukulele and some fabulous singing!
After 7 weeks of learning to play the Cornet and Baritone, class 3 enjoyed their music concert to mark the end of their lessons. They have thoroughly enjoyed learning to play these brass instruments and look forward to begin playing the Djembe drum next term. Thanks to all parents who joined us for this musical morning.
Chinese New Year Celebrations
To celebrate Chinese New Year, Class 3 spent the afternoon creating Chinese drums with paper plates, lolly sticks, string and beads before decorating them with Chinese symbols. They worked together to thread the beads which was particularly hard but made some fantastic piece of art and music.
