Welcome to Class 3

Welcome back! I hope you have all enjoyed a refreshing break and are ready to come back to school! This half-term is very short (4 weeks and 4 days!) but it is also one of the busiest! We are now starting swimming on a Tuesday morning, we have a trip booked to link with our History topic, a Science workshop, sing-a-round and preparations for our Easter assembly!

In Literacy we will be reading the story Alice in Wonderland by Emma Chicester clark. Through this, we will complete various different writing tasks, such as: instructions, diary entry, descriptions and non-chronological reports. In our writing we will be incorporating aspects of spelling, punctuation and grammar that we have learnt, as well as building on our inference and deduction skills.

In Maths, we will be covering a different aspect each week: place value, counting, addition and subtraction, multiplciation and division, fractions, statistics and telling the time. Also, we will continue to trial a new scheme of work called The Shanghai Maths Project, which is recognised as being one of the best! The children have really enjoyed using the new books and they like that they can challenge themselves and get as far as they can. 

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 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.
