We have an exciting half term ahead as we begin our Year Three adventure! For more information, click here for our 'Marvellous Me' Newsletter. Click here to view this half term's topic map

If you do any topic related work at home, please bring it in to show everyone! 


You are invited to our story telling event on Thursday 19th September in the school hall at 2:30pm. The children will tell you the story of Nail Soup, complete with actions and also sing you their harvest songs.

We are very excited to be welcoming the Thinktank from Birmingham into school to deliver a workshop called 'Under Your Skin' on Wednesday 25th September. A voluntary contribution of £1 will be gratefully received to help cover the cost of this experience, thank you for your support.


This term, both classes have PE on Mondays and Tuesdays. Please ensure that full PE kits, including pumps or trainers, are left in school day. While the weather remains favourable, we will aim to do as much learning outside as possible! PE kits will be sent home each half term to be washed.


In Year 3, you are encouraged to change your own reading book when you have finished it. Adults are available to support with this to begin with, if necessary. Home-School Link books are collected in each morning, even if you haven't read, in case there are any messages or target updates. We are aiming for a minimum of 4 reads a week. This is to ensure you make good progress, to help you learn to love reading and to support your writing skills.

Spellings and times tables will be given out each Friday and tested the following week. In case you misplace your spellings, click below to view them online!

Every Monday, a topic related homework task will be given. This is due by the following Monday morning at the latest! For each piece of homework completed to a good standard and handed in on time, you will earn a sticker on the reward chart. There will be a special homework reward at the end of each half term so get into good habits early. Parents are allowed to help you with homework tasks! You could even visit the library or look something up online.


If you are having any problems completing your homework, speak to one of the Year 3 staff team for support or guidance. Click here to view the homework overview.
