Miss Rees


We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable Christmas break, and we would like to welcome everyone back to the New Year.  

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!


The spring 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 rocks and soils’ followed by magnets, our Geography learning will concentrate on local area and Europe and our DT planning will focus on designing objects from the Celts. As History is taught chronologically we will be moving onto learning about the Celts and in Art we will be making models of the Alps. English and Mathematics will continue to be taught daily and focus on key writing skills and mathematical calculations.

Spring 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 – Dance/ Gym

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 can bring a piece of fruit to school for their morning snack to enjoy during reading time.

Children in Year 3 receive regular homework: one maths or English homework each week, a creative homework for the term and spellings for both class and phonics.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher, who will usually be available at the end of each day. We anticipate a busy and exciting term ahead and we thank you in anticipation of your continued support.
