Dear Parents and Carers,


Welcome to Year 3, the first year of their time in the juniors (Key Stage 2).

This year your child will secure their knowledge and develop their skills and understanding. In Year 3 all children are expected to produce longer, more detailed pieces of work in every lesson.  They will start 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.


In English we will be basing our writing on ‘The Street’, a setting that we have created collaboratively.  We are currently writing a setting and character description to start our stories.  We will also be creating newspaper reports, letters and poetry.


In Maths we will be securing our understanding of 3 digit numbers, adding and taking away, ordering, counting forwards and backwards in 2s, 3s, 4s, 5s, 8s and 10s.


Our Science this term is Plants.  We will be investigating plants to find out more about the way they grow, the different parts and their purpose.


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.


I know that the start to this school year has been particularly unusual and we really appreciate your cooperation.  Please remember no water bottles in school and no fabric bags or lunchboxes.  Please also remember that the school day now finishes at 3.20pm prompt for Year 3.


I have thoroughly enjoyed meeting your child and getting to know them.  I am expecting this to be a successful year.


Yours Faithfully,

Miss E Bovingdon
