Welcome to Class 3

I hope you have all had a fantastic Easter break and are now refreshed and ready for the final term in Year 3: I can’t quite believe this is our last term together!

 As always, we have lots of exciting topics to learn about. The children are already very excited to learn about rocks and soils in Science and earthquakes and volcanoes in Geography. In Literacy we will be reading some new texts called 'The Flower' by John Light and 'A Child’s Garden' by Michael Foreman. Throughout the reading of these texts, the children will produce a range of writing pieces such as: a setting description, a report on the life cycle of a plant, a diary entry, a comparison of two texts and a poem. In Maths we will continue to practise our times tables daily (your child should now be practising all times tables). We will be consolidating our learning of place value; addition and subtraction; multiplication and division. As well as this, we will learn about and read different measuring scales for liquids (ml and l). Please see the curriculum overview for a more in-depth view of what we will be learning.

Home Learning

Home Learning will be given out on a Tuesday and due back in the following Monday. There will be two tasks that will be Literacy/GPS and Maths. They will relate to what your child has learnt in class that week. Homework club is on a Thursday at 3:15-4:00. It is open to all children that require help that week. House points will be awarded for standard and effort of Home Learning.


Please ensure that your child has their reading book and reading record in school every day. We will ensure that your child’s reading book is changed regularly as and when they are ready for a new one. Miss Henderson will read with every child in Guided Reading lessons at least once a week and there will also be an opportunity for your child to read with an adult on a 1:1 basis.


We are very lucky this half-term as we have swimming with Miss Ashton on a Tuesday, P.E with MCFC on a Wednesday, PE with Miss Ashton on a Thursday and Rugby with Salford Red Devils on a Friday. Therefore, I suggest that your child brings their P.E. kit in on a Monday and takes it home on a Friday to be washed. 

If you have any questions or queries about anything, don't hesitate to come and speak to a member of the Year 3 team. As always, thank you for your continued support in everything that we do for your child.
