Autumn 2

Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome back, I hope you and your children enjoyed a restful half term.

This term your child will secure their knowledge and develop their skills and understanding. All Year 3 children are expected to produce longer, more detailed pieces of work in every lesson.  They have started to take more responsibility for improving their work and correcting any mistakes.

Reading continues to be an incredibly important for your child’s progress.  We will read with your child twice each week and they will bring an Oxford Reading Tree book home daily.  Please read with your child at home using the books from the scheme and any other books that they enjoy.  Make sure you sign the reading diary every time your child reads so they move up the balloons in our Reading Competition.

In English we will be basing our writing on ‘Into the Forest’, a setting that we have created collaboratively.  We are currently writing story with a familiar setting.  We will also be creating newspaper reports, mystery stories and poetry.

In Maths we will be securing our understanding of adding and taking away before moving on to multiplication and division.  We will continue ordering, counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s and 10s and begin to learn the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables.

Our Science this term is Light.  We will be investigating different materials to find which ones are reflective, transparent, translucent or opaque.  We will also be learning about the sun and finding out about the dangers of the light that it produces.

Our PE lesson is every Wednesday, so please make sure your child comes to school wearing their PE kits, which is trainers, black jogging bottoms/leggings, white t-shirt and the blue school jumper.

Please remember water bottles need to be brought in every day.  Do not sent fabric bags or lunchboxes in with your child.  Please also remember that the school day now finishes at 3.20pm prompt for Year 3.

Last term was very productive and also a lot of fun. 

Yours Faithfully,


Miss E Bovingdon
