Year 3 (3TS & 3AY)

Welcome Back

We hope you all had a good half term and are now all refreshed and ready for this busy time in the lead up to the end of the year.

Autumn Challenge

We are setting the challenge of creating a model forest inspired by our focus books. We hope to see imaginative m odels made of all sorts of junk appearing in our classrooms soon.


Mr Yates class will continue to be going swimming on a Wednesday afternoon.


PE will be on Thursday afternoon and children need to make sure they have footwear and kit suitable for outside activities.


Remember to use Mathletics at home as this is another fun way to learn more.


New spelling lists have been sent home. Some of the words are quite tricky so please encourage your child to practice as it realy helps.


Please continue to read at home and make sure your child brings their book to school every day.

The Environment

Our focus book this half term is The Tin Forest by Helen Ward. This is a beautiful story that helps us think about the world we live in and how we look after it. We will be looking closely at how language is used to create detailed and imaginative descript ions of settings and characters and we are going to write our own story too.


Our Science focus is finding out more about light and shadows and we are looking fo rward to some interesting investigations that will help us learn more.

We will be thinking carefully about how we can look after our environment and talking about pollution and recycling in more detail.


In Maths we will be learning more about place value and completing tasks involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. We will be thinking more about using what we alre ady know to solve word problems and looking closely at numbers in order to identify patterns that will help us understand more about number.

Commando Joe

We will continue to do PE sessions with Commando Joe and are hoping to have a go at one of his assault courses soon.
