“Engage, Inspire, Achieve”

Year 3

it has been a busy week in Year 3. We have been learning about division in Maths using arrays. It is really important that the children practise their times tables at few times a week at least. We have been focusing on the 3 and 4 times tables.

In English we have been reading the book Stone Age Boy.

Please send in a torch if you can.

Have a lovely weekend.

Year are learning division

It has been a pleasure to get to know your children this week.

This week Year 3 have been learning about limericks in English. We have found out that limericks have 5 lines and have a specific rhyming pattern. The lines 1,2 and 5 rhyme and the lines 3 and 4 rhymes. the children enjoyed writing their own limericks.

In Science, the children are learning about light. This week the children investigated that we need light to see in a very

practical way. If possible, please  send in a torch for next week.

Imperative verbs

This week in English we have been looking at instructions, writing and learning all about imperative (bossy) verbs. We have written instructions for making a sandwich or a chocolate cake and towards the end of the week, we are working in partners to write our own instructions for a game that we will hopefully be able to play with another pair.


Next week, we will be looking at newspapers and writing our own newspaper articles using the key features we have learnt.


In Maths, we have used bar modelling to solve addition and subtraction word problems. The children have worked hard on this and have developed their understanding and reasoning skills. Next week, we will be reading, drawing and interpreting bar charts.


Children have been set a new homework grid, which is due in Wednesday. Please can I also ask that reading records, in the diary, are completed at least 3 times a week so that we know that children are reading either independently or out loud at home and so we know when to change their books.


Wishing you a lovely weekend


We have had a very busy half term, learning to add and subtract 2 and 3 digit numbers in maths, writing diary entries about Anti Bullying week as well as imagining what life was like during Ancient Egyptian times, learning about forces and magnets in Science and learning all about Ancient Egypt in History. The children have all worked so hard and should all be proud of their work. 


Over the holidays, please can children continue to read daily as well as practising their spellings so that they come back prepared after the half term. 


Thank you for your ongoing support

We are practising our times tables

In maths we were measuring things in the classroom using cm and mm

In maths we were looking at different ways that we can make the same number, using multiplication, division, addition and subtraction.

Today in Maths we were estimating and measuring our classroom objects using cm and mm.

Some of the fantastic Egyptian Pyramids

We had fun this morning practising our times tables and number bonds in our maths lesson.

Today we learnt about the mummification process in our Ancient Egyptian topic. We wrapped Hazel up as 'mummy'. Ask the children to tell you all about the mummification process.

Reading with Year 5

Welcome to Year 3


The children have settled really well into class so far. Over the past week, we have written our own chapter for the story of Mr Fox, tackled place value and counting on in 10 and 100's in maths and learning all about the Ancient Egyptians in History. The children have worked so well and are already showing us how hard they can work. 


Next week, we will be writing our own stories in English, focusing on dialogue and punctuation as well as making sure we can use synonyms for the word 'said'. In Maths, we will be looking at column addition and subtraction. 


We have started giving children reading books and reading records. Half of the class books will be changed on Thursdays and other half on Friday. Please make sure that you record your child's reading in their new homework diaries as these will be checked weekly. 


Many thanks for your ongoing support
