Year 3 (97)

Y3 Class assembly

Thank you to all the parents and family members who were able to come to our class assembly. I'm sure you will agree that it is so important to teach the children about how to deal with bullying issues. This isn't just a subject we cover during anti-bullying week, it is ongoing throughout the year. We will discuss cyberbullying next week in class. Please encourage your child to discuss these issues with you at home too.

Homework week ending 16.11.18



Your child has been given a booklet with various tasks. These are revision tasks for skills we have already covered in school.


With all the excitement of the assembly, the spelling sheet was not given out today. I will send it home with the children on Monday.


Please continue to read regularly with your child. If you ask questions about the content of the text, please ask your child to locate the information in the text in order to give precise answers.

Have a good weekend!

Homework week ending 8.11.18



For our class assembly next week we will recite a poem. Please encourage your child to read the poem several times, with expression, to help them to commit the words to memory. They do not need to be word perfect as they will be able to support one another as they recite it together. Your child has been given a few lines of their own to learn too. They have been practising projecting voices and speaking clearly, so hopefully you will be able to hear all the children on Friday.

It would be great if the children could wear odd socks for the assembly too. They can either come to school wearing them, or they could bring them to change into at school.


Next week we will have a spelling test of the words from the last spelling sheet. We have revised the rules for adding suffixes to root words. Please ask your child to explain the rules they have been learning. A new sheet will be sent out next week.


Our current maths topic is mental addition and subtraction of 3 digit numbers. The work will lead to recording column addition and subtraction calculations. There are several sheets on the homework booklet. Some children are working quickly, and they will be able to complete all the sheets within thirty minutes. If there are too many sheets for your child to complete, please encourage them to do what they can in the given time.

Have a good weekend

Promises RE year 3


As part of our topic about Promises, we have learned about a Christian Baptism and the promises that are made during the ceremony. Father Chris came to support us with our learning. He performed a mock Baptism, and he explained what he was doing and the symbolism of the actions. This really helped the children to understand and remember the important parts of the ceremony.

Homework week ending 19.10.2018



Please continue to encourage your child to research information about the Victorians, and encourage them to talk to you about what they have learned from the texts. We will be writing an information text at school next week.


The learning focus for this week has been about data. Your child has been given a booklet with activities which support some of the learning they have been doing in class. There are several sheets, so the homework is for the next two weeks. Please help your child to complete the booklet and return it to school after the half term holiday.


Your child has been given a new list of spellings this week. We have been learning spellings from week 1 and 2 on this list. Please support your child to spell these words. There will be a spelling test next week. We will have an additional spelling test of words from the whole half term to assess the progress of the children.


Have a good weekend.

Homework week ending 12.10.2018



It was lovely to hear the poems chosen by the children. They read with confidence and expression, and the rest of the class really enjoyed listening to the poems. There is still the opportunity for children to complete this activity if they haven’t already done so.

This week, please encourage your child to do some research about children in Victorian times. We have just started to make notes in school, so if your child would like to make a few notes about what they have found out that would be great. However, the main emphasis is reading and understanding the text, and learning new information. We will be doing plenty of writing about our topic in school when the children have enough information to write about.

In ICT the children have learned about key words to use when searching for information. If they add KS2 to their search, they should find age appropriate texts to read.


Your child has been given a booklet with activities which support and revise some of the learning they have been doing in class.


The results from the spelling test last week was the best we have had so far. 10 children scored 10/10 on the test. This week we have been learning spellings from lists 5 and 6. Please encourage your child to learn these words at home for a spelling test next Tuesday.
