We hope that you and your children have had a very enjoyable Easter break. As expected, the children have settled back in well after the Easter break and have continued well with their learning.

The Summer term is always a busy time for children in Year 3, with lots of new learning taking place as well as consolidating previously learnt skills.

English and Mathematics will continue to be taught daily and focus on key writing skills and mathematical calculations. Times tables remain a priority, and we would appreciate your help in practising for the 4x 3x 8x and 6x tables this term please.

In our Science lessons, we will be completing our unit on ‘Light’, followed by ‘Plants’.

Our thematic topic this term is entitled “Picture our Planet”. As Geographers and Historians, we will be exploring and comparing the countries of Brazil, Scotland and Fiji. We will also develop our Computing skills using control software and animation. We will be using our DT, Art and Music skills as our topic develops further – more is set to be revealed soon!

Please can we remind parents that no jewellery should be worn in school with the exception of stud earrings, and in line with Health and Safety guidelines these should not be worn for PE. Children will be asked to remove or tape earrings before PE sessions. PE days are on Tuesdays and Thursdays as normal. Please ensure that children have the correct PE kit in school at all times; PE kits can be purchased from the school office. Water bottles are also available to be purchased from the school office if needed. We will continue with morning toast up until close of register and should you wish, children can bring a piece of fruit to school for their morning snack.

Children in Year 3 receive regular homework. Our purple creative homework books will continue every few weeks, and spellings will be given out each week and tested the following Thursday.

Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your class teacher, who will usually be available at the end of each day. We anticipate a busy and exciting term ahead and we thank you for your continued support.
