Year 3

Term 3

Well, what a fantastic Term 2 we had, the highlights for us include; learning about Diwali, learning new songs and performing our first KS2 assembly in front of the rest of the key stage. Taking part in the Christmas Carol service was good.  Though nervous you all performed amazing. Times table rock stars was introduced and you all looked fabulous.


This Term (Term 3) we are going to be learning about Ancient Egyptians  looking at the life in Ancient Egypt and learning about God and Goddesses ,Pharaohs and Pyramids .  We will be having a WOW day shortly, were we will dress up as Egyptians (please keep checking school website/messaging service for regular updates and future events).


A few reminders,


  • By the end of Year 4, all children are expected to know their times tables up to 12 X 12. In Year 3 they are expected to know 2,5,10 with confidence and they will learn 3,4,6,8. We learn them daily in school but ask you to support at home and encourage all children to practice on Times table site using their logins.
  • Please ensure that your child brings their planner into school every day as it contains useful learning aids to support their learning. We would request that you read with your child 5 times a week and record this in your planner.
  • There is also a writing task for your child to complete on a weekly basis in their planners. Please support them in doing this, if you can.


Throughout the rest of the year, we have some amazing topics, WOW’s and exciting activities planned to enable us to learn whilst having fun.


If you have any questions or concerns, we are available via phone or email. Please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to discuss your child’s learning.  We look forward to working in partnership with you as the school year progresses.
