Father Chris visits Y3KS

This week, we have started our new RE topic on Energy. We were lucky enough to have Father Chris come to our class to talk to us all about the celebration of Easter and the lead up to the Ascension and Pentecost. Father Chris talked about the importance of fire and wind, both in our lives and during Pentecost. He also talked about how all the apostles spread the Good News about Jesus after he ascended into Heaven.


Thank you to Father Chris for answering all the children's questions, we were very intrigued. 

Homework week ending 27th April



We have been using spelling work sheets for ai words and ear words in class this week. Please encourage your child to complete any unfinished sheets they bring home. Please check that your child can spell all the words on the sheets. There will be a spelling test with these words in school.


Your child has been given a ‘Words and Figures Quiz’ to complete. Please get your child to check their spellings before they return them to school.


Please continue to read regularly with your child. The focus for much of the current Literacy topic is to identify how the characters are feeling. Please encourage your child to use a range of emotion words to describe how a character is feeling or why they act in a particular way.

If you have any Anthony Browne books at home, please could we borrow them for a couple of weeks?

Handball Y3

Report by Thomas

On 23rd April me and Louis and Amaya went to Hallam Primary School. We went there to do handball with other schools which were Hallam Primary, Nether Green and our school. We watched the first match to get the idea about how to play it. Then we did the match and we got 0. So to get better we did some shooting in goals. After shooting in goals the referee called us and we did another match. From all that shooting we got 4 whilst the other team got 1. In the semi finals we got 0 whilst the other team got 1. But it was kind of good because we lost against the winners. Finally we said thank you and went back to our school to have a photo.

Y3 Homework Friday 20th April 2018

Schofield and Sims
The children should complete one page of their Schofield and Sims book and return their book to school by Wednesday 25th April. Please complete any corrections before beginning a new test.

Please continue to read regularly with your child. Reward points will be given to children who record what they have read in their reading diaries. Please ask your child to tell you about what they have read. This will help to ensure your child can understand the text they are reading.

During their morning work this week, the children have been looking at a long /a/ sound, spelt with /ei/ and /ey/. Please look through the workbooks with the children, complete any unfinished work and practise the spellings. The spellings are:

eight, eighth, eighty, weight, vein, veil, beige, sleigh, freight, neighbour

hey, they, obey, grey, purvey, whey, survey, convey, disobey and prey

We understand that many of these spellings are quite simple. However, the children need to revise the rules for the various graphemes and practise spellings these words correctly in their written work too.

Our new Science topic this term is, Light and Shadows. If you have any spare torches at home that you are happy to loan to Y3 this term, we would be very grateful.

Happy Easter from the Y3 Team

The children have not been set any homework for the Easter holidays. All we ask, is that the children read regularly and practise their times tables. However, please encourage your child to enter the writing challenge. See the newsletter for further details.

We hope they enjoy their time off and that you all have a fun and peaceful Easter.
