What a busy, festive and fun end to the term we are having in Year 3.


Well done to the children for all of the extra curricular activities they have taken part in over the last few weeks. 


We all really enjoyed our school trip to Verulamium and it was the perfect ending to our Roman topic!

Half term

Wow what a busy week! Diversity Week, Class Assembly in between and a Learning showcase to finish. It was so lovely to see so many of you this week and to share the children's hard work and learning from this half term.


Attached below are Year 2 common exception words which we will be revising in our spelling lessons before moving on to the Year 3 words.  They are split into 'word families' to support remembering any patterns or similarities in the words.  It would be useful for you to spend some time reading and spelling these words.  


Many thanks for your continued support.  Have a great Half term break :) 





Maths Home learning is on English Home learning is attached below.  


As I am sure you've heard it's our Class Assembly next Wednesday (24th). We look forward to seeing you there if you are able to make it!  The children will be bringing home a slip of paper with a line to practise in preparation for the assembly.  We have also been learning a song for the assembly. Many children have requested the link to the song so they can practise this at home so I have included it below.

Have a great weekend!

Maths Home learning is on  The parents guide is below to help you access the activities online.  Each child has been given a username (3 numbers) and a password (3 letters) which they have stuck on the front of their Reading Records.  Please note 'Flash' will need to be enabled to get the activities to work.  If you are unable to access the internet for any reason let us know and we can provide a paper copy version next week.  Comprehension books have been sent home this week for English Home learning.  The title of this weeks reading comprehension is 'Building Stonehenge'.  Have a great weekend!



Music Lesson Update

For this term only, Year 3 will be having Brass lessons on Thursdays after break. As a result we will move our library session to a Thursday as the class will be split for lesson teaching. Brass lessons will start this week. 

Reading Book Update

As the children are still developing their independence in changing their books, we're going to make a change to the current system.

Children will now change their books once a week during their guided reading session. We will write their reading day on the front of their Reading Records, but for your reference please check their reading day on the table below.

The new system will start next week (08.10.18).

Reading Book Change Day
