Blwyddyn 3

Welcome Back Year 3!

I have have missed you lots over the Summer and am really looking forward to seeing you all. I hope you have had a lovely time being home with your family, but are now looking forward to getting back to school.

We will start the term looking at the book ‘The Mousehole Cat’. This will be our main focus for our Literacy for the first few weeks. As the book is set in Mousehole in Cornwall we will also use it as a Geography focus.


For the majority of our term our topic will be ‘The Romans’.  This is such an interesting period of history that we know you will love finding out all about it. We have already thought of interesting questions during our EPIC session in July.

As always the menu of SIX tasks will be given and you will have a choice of which activity they complete over each two week period. By the end of the term you will be expected to have completed all six tasks in full and to the best of your ability.  A change to this year is that we will not be asking for the homework to come back into school.  Instead we would love to see pictures and work completed in the Google Classroom or via email. Your work will still be shared and celebrated within the classroom, as we love to see your hard work.

Spellings and Times Table test will be on Mondays. Spellings  will be available here on the website so no excuses that you haven’t had your words! We will be sending a sheet of your words home every week and they will no longer be stuck into a book.

Here are the Week 7 spellings for each group, for a test on 2.11.20

Mental arithmetic books cannot be sent home anymore unfortunately, but children will be set maths tasks on Mymaths  to complete weekly and children can also practise their times tables on TT Rockstars or on ‘Hit the Button’ on the Topmarks website. 

P.E. lessons will be on Tuesdays. You MUST wear your PE kit into school on this day.

Reading is very important at this age and we ask that you support your children in their reading by regularly listening to them read, and also by reading to them at home. It is tricky for us to listen to your children read in school at the moment but we will change your child’s book on a weekly basis for them to read at home. Can children bring their books into school only on a Wednesday to be changed.

If mums and dads have any concerns or worries feel free to contact the school office by email, and I will respond as soon as I can.
