This autumn term we will be focusing on stories by the same author smiley  We will be looking at stories by Micheal Foreman- our first book is 'I'll take you to Mrs Cole'. 

 Just a quick reminder that the children need to keep practising their weekly spellings and their Year 3 spellings and your child should  be reading at least 3 times a week for 15 minutes.

Thank you.  


   As part of our Maths Learning we try to make our lessons as fun and as practical as possible. The topics we have been exploring this half term are problem solving, including addition and subtraction. The children have been focusing on their understanding of the Year 3 formal written methods. 


Please make sure you are aware of your child's 'Instant recall facts' for this academic year. Please see the link at the bottom of the page for more details. 


Our current topic is World War One we will be focusing on key historical points from 1914-1918. We will be exploring how the war began and the impact it had on the soldiers and the people left at home. Although this is an emotional topic, it is a highly thought provoking and the children find it very interesting!  


Please use the web link below to engage your child in our amazing topic. 





During this Autumn Half Term we will be focusing on our Forces Strand of the New Curriculum, looking at the different types of forces and how they affect everyday life.

  • Key dates for your diary-​
  • Our PE days are Monday and Fridays. Our P.E sessions this half term will be based on team games. 

However, it is important the children have their PE kits in school every day so we can be flexible.

  • We will also have Jimmy Jump Shot in on a Friday afternoon teaching the children basketball. 
  • Some of the children still don't have a water bottle in school. The children have access to their water all day, so please ensure they have a bottle in class.
  • Also, can all children please have their home learning books in school all week as we are launching a new approach to our home learning.

Thank you.
