Welcome to Year 3


Dear Parents/Carers,

Welcome to the Autumn Term!  Miss Tomlinson and I are looking forward to working with you to ensure your child achieves their full potential. 



This half term our writing focus is letters to friends and family members, descriptions and stories with a familiar setting.



This half term we are focusing on place value, mental calculation, 2D shape, statistics and written addition.

By the end of Year 3 your child is expected to know the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables.  They should know these number facts not just be able to recite the times table.


We will be learning about plants during our science lessons this half term.  We will find out about the different parts of plants and how they reproduce.  We will investigate how water moves through a plant and what conditions plants need to grow.


Our History topic is called ‘Stone Age to Iron Age’.  We will discover how people lived in the Stone Age, Bronze Age and Iron Age and how Britain changed during this period.


This year PE will take place on Wednesday, which will be taken by Mr Hutson.  Please ensure your child has their P.E. in school every week.  The children will also be participating in the Daily Mile.



Your child will 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.


Please practice the 2, 3, 4, 5, 8 and 10 times tables with your child at home.


This half term I will be looking for research about our science (plants) and/or history (Stone Age to Iron Age).  Children are encouraged to do research every week.  As soon as your child has completed a piece of work in their research book they need to put it into the research box in class.

Thursday Drop In’s

Every Thursday 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 Bovingdon
