Year 3 Information: Summer 1


Welcome back!

Welcome back! I hope everyone has had a lovely Easter break! I would like to take this opportunity to provide you with some information about this half term.


Research and Writers Prize

Well done to all the children for a great effort last half term in their research and writing. Our writer winner was Cah-Lia. The research winner was Harneet. Great work!



This half term we are focusing on time, multiplication, division, addition, subtraction, 2-D shapes, angles and money.



This half term we are focusing on instructions, fables and humorous stories.



Children read to an adult at least twice week in school but are also expected to read at home. Also, I would kindly ask if your child finishes their library book at home, could you make a note of this in their reading planner. This will allow them progress to another book.



Our topic this half term is Geography based and is called ‘Our European Neighbours’. This half term, the children have been asked to create a model of a famous European landmark!


Our R.E topic this half term is ‘why do people pray?’



P.E is on Wednesday and Thursday. Therefore, children should have their labelled P.E kit in school on these days. Please note children should have their P.E kit in on Fridays for enrichment.




In Year 3 children are expected to:

  • Read their book daily.

· Complete research on their topic.

· Complete Maths homework (this could be times tables practice or a sheet from their maths booklet).

  • Complete their reading target for the week.

Maths homework is due on a Thursday. Research can be brought in any day.



Every Tuesday I have organised a drop-in for parents. This will allow you to have a look at your child’s work and achievements. This will be in the Year 3 classroom and will run from 3:30 – 3:40.



Thank you,

Miss C Deeney.
