Happy New Year! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and are feeling ready and refreshed for a new term!

There are lots of exciting things planned for this term, please keep checking this page as I will update it regularly.

Spring 1 Topics:

English: Stone Age Boy, The Iron Man (reading focus)

Maths: Multiplication and Division, Length and Perimeter

Science: Rocks, Soils and Fossils

RE: The Sacrament of Reconciliation 

History Focus: Through the Ages: The Stone Age to the Iron Age

Your child should bring their diary and reading books into school each day. 



This half term Year 3 will take part in outdoor learning every Thursday afternoon.

Please ensure children come to school in their winter PE kit (Navy joggers No Shorts).

Children can bring extra layers/waterproofs in a named bag to put on in the afternoon.

Children will need wellies/walking boots.



It is important that children can not only read books but understand what they are reading.

Please read with your child daily. Try to discuss the story, characters and vocabulary with your children. Support with this can be found in the files at the bottom of this page.

Your child should be reading their school colour banded book more than once to aid with fluency and comprehension. Alongside this they can read another book of their choice to encourage 'Reading for Joy'. 


Please check your child's homework diary for all homework. Their diary should be in class everyday.



Given out Mondays to be completed and in school by the next Monday



Given out Fridays to be completed and in school by the next Friday



To be sent home on Fridays

Weekly spellings are based upon a spelling rule.

It is vital that children are learning the spelling rules in order to apply them to their writing, rather than just learning the words they bring home. A google search of the spelling rule will bring up lots more words to practice!
