Year 3

Welcome to Year 3!



Key Information


PE this term will again take place on Friday afternoons.  Please ensure that children have a suitable PE kit at all times and that they remove all jewellery for these lessons.  We expect all children to be able to remove their own jewellery (including earrings) by themselves and long hair must be tied up.

Swimming will continue to take place on Tuesday mornings.

This half term we will be completing our local study of Towcester in Geography, working on ‘Rocks’ in Science and carrying out work based on the theme 'Chocolate' in English. After half term our History topic will be ‘The Anglo-Saxons’, our Science topic will be 'Scientists and Inventors ' and our final theme for the year in English will be ‘Superheroes’.

Please consult our Summer 2018 Curriculum Newsletter for more details about the topics covered. 



This term we are looking forward to our residential trip to Everdon, our trip to Chedworth Roman Villa (postponed from last term) and a visit from some Anglo-Saxons. We will also be going on a walk around Towcester as part of our local study. 


Home Learning


Year 3 homework expectations are as follows:


Maths - Please refer to the Year 3 Home Learning sheet

Reading – In school your child will read in a small guided group with a member of the Year 3 team once every week. They will also bring home a reading book that we will expect them to be reading with you at home. Please see the Year 3 Home Learning sheet for more information.

Spellings - Our weekly spelling lesson takes place on a Monday.  During this lesson the children will be tested on the words that they were given to learn the previous week and given new spellings to take home and learn.  

Creative Homework -This is to be based on our Science and Humanities topics (see above).
