Meerkat class assembly


Thank you so much to everyone involved in the Meerkat class assembly today. The children were fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. To all the last minute costumes and the hand made props, we couldn't have done it without you!

Science homework.

This week the children have really enjoyed sharing their science homework with the rest of the children. We have seen some exceptional work and the children (and staff!) have thoroughly enjoyed it. Thank you for all your support and hard work on this over the Christmas holidays.

Holiday Homework Christmas 2017


Over the holidays we want you to have some fun so here is our challenge to you. Next half term we are doing a science based topic and to get you thinking scientifically we would like you to find something that really interests you and investigate it. Not sure what to do? Have a look at for some great ideas.

You should then present your findings in an interesting way that you can share with the rest of the class. This could be in the form of a poster, picture, photograph, model, written report or any other way you think of.

This needs to be returned on Tuesday 9th January and we will be looking at them and sharing them during the week.

We learnt all about Sikhism on Thursday and Friday

Wow! What an exciting half term!

It's been an action packed half term in Year 3 that has seen the children fascinated by Ancient Egypt, discovering tombs, creating pyramids and masks, visiting the Panto (oh no they didn't!) and learning about Sikhism and Christianity.

Welcome Back!


As we enter into the second half of Autumn term, we would like to welcome all children and families back. This half term in Year 3, we will be looking at the Ancient Egyptians through our topic and English work whilst we focus in on the four calculations in maths.


As always, we ask that you read with your child regularly at home, and support them in learning their weekly spellings and their times tables. Please continue to ensure that children's clothes and equipment are labelled with their name, and that your child has full P.E kit and has a water bottle in school every day.


Homework. This half term homework will be sent home at a point in the week where it fits with the lessons being taught. This will usually be at some point between Monday and Wednesday. Homework should be returned on the Monday after it is sent out.


Many thanks,


The Year 3 team
