Welcome back after the summer holiday! We hope that you all had an enjoyable and relaxing break and that the children are excited to start Year 3.

The Autumn term is always a busy time for children in Year 3 with lots of learning taking place. In our Science work, we will be studying ‘Rocks and Soils’. This year, we are continuing to reach through Thematic Topic lessons across the school, and our first Year 3 Topic is ‘Tumbling through Time’. We look forward to exploring through key times in History and Geography, and using our Computing and creative skills to solve challenges. English and Mathematics will continue to be taught daily and focus on key writing skills and mathematical calculations. Times tables are a big focus in Year 3, to prepare for their test in Year 4. Practice of reading and times tables at home will greatly support children in these areas.

Year 3 PE sessions are on Wednesday and Thursday for the Autumn Term.
Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times. PE kits can be purchased from the school office and can be kept in school all week on your peg. As the weather gets colder, the children may prefer to wear tracksuit bottoms and jumpers during P.E.

Children in Class 3 receive regular homework and spellings. Children are still expected to complete a reading journal activity of their choice after every book. Children should aim to complete at least one reading journal activity per week (examples of reading journals activities will be stuck inside their Reading Journal Book). Additional creative homework (purple book) will also be given out throughout the year.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me, I will usually be available at the end of each day. Thank you for your continued support.

Class 3 dressed in some amazing costumes and enjoyed talking about the characters that they were dressed as.

Class 3 impressed everybody with what they have learned about the recorder. They demonstrated their ability to accompany a piece of music using the three different notes that they have been taught. Well done to everybody involved.
